Thanks for the reply.The Siemans is connected to the adsl phone line and the Edimax is connected to the Siemans then routes the internet via wireless 802.11n. So the Edimax has a pirvate IP of 192.168.1.2 being issued from the Siemans.
The Siemans has 4 ports and the Edimax is the only thing connected.
a) Make sure that your computer is set to use DHCP. Unless you set a static IP on your computer, this is not a problem.
b) Release your IP address. For example on Windows, that means going to the command prompt (Start -> Run. Type in cmd and pressing enter), then typing in ipconfig /release.
b) Disconnect the computer that you want to host on from the Edimax, and then reconnect to the Siemans.
c) Renew the IP address of your computer, as need be. For example on a Windows computer, that would mean.. Go to the command prompt if not already there, and this time type in ipconfig /renew and press enter.
d) Set your computer to use a static IP outside of the new DHCP range (such as 192.168.1.6).
e) Forward from the Siemans to that IP address that you setup on your computer.
Thanks for the reply, I think I will go for option 2 this will allow me to network at N rates for media streaming HD... I'll be back if it goes horribly wrong... :D
Did option 2 got it all working, set network up connect to internet no problems. I have got 3 of the ports open just struggling with RTSP streaming TCP port 554 which is playing merry hell. It might be software based as i have portforwarded ok for bittorrent....Would a bridged connection on my server be causing problems??? (I plug my xbox into the back of my mediacenter and bridge the connections to allow for internet connection for the Xbox, xbox off while testing btw)
