How to configure dmz on linksys wireless n router?

  1. Log into your router. (If you need help how to do it let me know!)
  2. Go to th "Application & Gaming" tab.
  3. click on "DMZ"
  4. choose "Enable"
  5. Enter the IP address of the computer you want to put in the DMZ.
  6. Click "Save Settings"
Some notes:
  • Putting a computer in a DMZ is pretty risky, because all ports to this computer are opened. Make sure that all recent patches are applied and your virus software is up to date! A more secure solution is to use portforwarding. (See this site how to do that for a specific software for your router.)
  • Your computer should be set to a static IP. For two reasons:
  • A) DMZ will not work if your DHCP server (your router) assigns at one point a different IP address to your computer,
  • B) If a different computer gets the Ip address assigned that you specified in your DMZ settings, then that machine is exposed.
If you don't know how to assign a static IP address, let me know and I walk you through the steps.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Would like to host a game thru my motorola modem/router

You need to look for something on your router called Static NAT and configure it to point to your internal IP address.  You also need to find out what ports your NASCAR game advertises itself's usually high ports (20000-30000).  ONce you find out the port(s), you can create a custom service on your router for those ports, and when you configure Static NAT, it should ask what 'service' you want to advertise.  This basically tells the router to forward all inbound traffic, looking for those particular ports, directly to your IP address, which will allow users on the Internet to see your game server.

Warcraft III: Frozen Throne - Can't host even though followed directions on portforward an etc., any solutions?

try with firewall disabled on computer? Some routers also include firewalls and require ports to be added to exception in firewall on router as well.

If that does not work set up computer as DMZ host in router configuration and see if that works.

Connecting to Xbox Live through my Dynex-E401 Router

You would think that Xbox 360 would be perfectly compatible with UPnP. They should be communicating with each other just fine, (UPnP talks to NATPMP to automatically open and forward appropriate ports), and the game's datastream is probably entirely connectionless aside from the initial handshake (UDP).

To log into your router console, type "" into your browser, for the username enter "admin" and do not put in a password. To enabled Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), click ADVANCED and on the left side click DMZ.

You will need to know the internal IP address to the XBOX360, which can be found on the "CABLE TEST" or "LAN" page in the router console.

If you find that you cannot log into the router console with the supplied information, you need to press the little reset button with a pen for like 10 seconds.

If you cannot reach the router console at then you need to go to Network Connections in windows and find out the "Default Gateway IP" which is the router's internal IP.

The XBOX360's internal IP address will be in the same format as your computer's (if you only have one computer, the XBOX360's IP will probably be and your computer's should be All of these are default values. You can change them in the router console as you please.

You need to set the correct address for DMZ (your PC IP address). You may also find that your PC firewall settings will need changing.

You shouldn't need to set DMZ for this, you can set port-forwarding instead, and then select the ports you wish to pass through for each IP address connected to your home side of the router.
