Double check that the Default Gateway in TCP/IP properties is the routers LAN IP address (By default this is 192.168.1.1) Without a gateway installed, there will be no Internet access. After verifying this go to Start>Run and when the "Run" window appears type command into the "Open" Field, then click OK Once the Command prompt appears type in: ping 207.69.188.185. If you don't get a reply, the gateway is not installed. If there is a gateway already installed, check for any third party firewalls that may be installed on your computer. These can sometimes block Internet access. For more information please see the related article on assigning a static IP address behind the router. If still having problems, contact Linksys Technical Support.

My problem is I cannot access my router to enter my dvr information to view my cameras on line


Hello,

Get to a command prompt and type 'ipconfig' - no quotes.

You will see some ip addresses listed. The gateway ip address is the ip address of your router. Put that ip address into the address bar of your web browser and it will take you to the router config page. This is where you can do port forwarding if you want to be able to view the cameras from outside your network. Post a comment if you need any more help.

Or did you just forget your router password........or is the router not responding......let me know :)

Pix 515 E allow few websites only.


Do the nslookup for the three websites and write an access list to permit the traffic only to the said website ip addresses

Eg.

1. go to dos prompt

2. type "nslookup"

3. type "www.rediff.com

Note : You will get the ip address of the websites

4. Create an object group for these websites

5. Add ip addresses of the websites

6. create an access-control list element to permit the traffic from your circle office to this object group for port tcp 80 and 443

You are done

How do I set a new address in the 850 motorola router


First, you ned to login into your router (check the manuals for this, Netgear has this printed behind the router near Serial no. etc).
Enable DHCP settings, allocate IP-address range say 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.5 (enough for 5 computers connecting via this router). Next, configure each computer to accept new IP-address from router by enabling DHCP.
The settings on a Windows XP Professional Desktop:
Need administrator access to your desktop, right-click on Network icon, Internet Protocol TCP/IP Properties, click on Properties button, then select Advanced properties, you can set DHCP from here.

Can't access my DSC 950G security camera


you have to log into the main IP address, not the camera IP address. If you are using wireless, the camera will have an IP address different than the one for the router coming from the ISP.
I just bought this camera myself and am trying to work out the kinks. My ip keeps changing and i am not sure how to keep it the same, static?

Just a bit of explanation. E0 interface is for inside network (LAN interface). E1 is for outside (ISP or WAN physical interface). Dialer1 is for PPPoE (the "actual"/logical WAN interface). The 1.0.0.13 is ISP provided static IP address for the use of the server. This configuration example is for running FTP server, which uses the standard TCP port 20 and 21.

The LAN uses 10.10.10.0 network with 255.255.255.0 subnet for both servers and workstations. All servers within the LAN use static IP address. The router is configured as DHCP server to give out IP info (IP addresses, subnet mask, DNS) to workstations that are configured as DHCP client.

Basically I suggest that you deploy NAT (Network Address Translation) and PAT (Port Address Translation) to setup your own servers behind Cisco router. The NAT is used to translate the ISP's given static IP address to your local IP address. The PAT is used to translate TCP ports (the port 20 and 21) between the two IP addresses.

When using NAT/PAT, keep in mind that the Internet-accessible servers are seen from the Internet as their NAT/PAT-ed IP address (the Public IP address) and not the local IP address (not the Private IP address). This understanding is very important when you or someone need to test connectivity to the server and/or when you need to create filter (access list or ACL for short) to allow only certain incoming traffic from the Internet and block others.

Side Note:
For more info on NAT/PAT concept, check out the following FAQ
»Cisco Forum FAQ »NAT and PAT; Introduction and Implementations

Instruments used in this illustration are pretty much standard for running your own servers. Please note that IP addresses, username, and password are changed. However, you could always modify the configuration to suit your situation.

This sample configuration assumes that you have a block of IP from ISP. There is a dedicated Public IP address for the router WAN interface (the Dialer1 interface) and another dedicated Public IP address for the server PAT IP address. If you only have a single Public IP address for both router WAN interface and server PAT IP address, there are several ways to configure the router.

One way is to use the same command as shown in sample configuration.

view plaincopy to clipboardprint?
  1. ip nat source static tcp 10.10.10.2 21 1.1.1.14 21 extendable
ip nat source static tcp 10.10.10.2 21 1.1.1.14 21 extendable
This one configuration way is suitable when you have static IP address from your ISP and you know exactly what the IP address is. In this case you have the 1.1.1.14 single static IP address for both the WAN interface and Public server IP address.

When you are unsure which IP address you receive from the ISP, or when your Public IP address keep changing; then another way to configure the static PAT is following

view plaincopy to clipboardprint?
  1. ip nat source static tcp 10.10.10.2 21 interface Dialer1 21 extendable
ip nat source static tcp 10.10.10.2 21 interface Dialer1 21 extendable
With situation of dynamic IP address, at some point you still need to know the exact Public IP address you receive from your ISP for server connection testing and production time. To find out, you can issue show ip interface brief command on the router. You will then see the associated WAN interface Public IP address.

Can not access my ip address in order to change NAT settings


Hi Brengolfter3,

My guess is, the IP to your router is still 192.168.x.x. Only way you are going to be able to get to the router, is to set your machine to a static IP, and then try to get to the router.
This site tells you how set it to static, http://corz.org/comms/hardware/router/static.ip.address.php

The IP you listed is assigned to Easton Utilites, so I have asume it is your internet IP. You might want to check the Xbox troubleshooting for the Xbox, so you don't have to disable your Nat, which is a firewall, by default. Good Luck!

Static IP on machine, now can't access web sites


Please see the related article on assigning a static IP address behind the router. If you still can not access websites, please try changing the static IP address you're using. For example if you're using the address 192.168.1.2, try 192.168.1.200. If that does not work please try the same static IP address on a different computer to see if it can use the information. If it can please try reinstalling your network card. If that doesn't work please contact Linksys Technical Support.
