I'm not sure if your asking for the IP ADDRESS of your Linksys or the DEFAULT GATEWAY of that device because your router's ip address will be provided by your server or Internet Service Provider (ISP) depending on your service. There are two ways of obtaining an ip address first will be DYNAMIC, where your ip address changes all the time and STATIC where you are given specific ip addresses for example 192.168.0.1 -to 192.168.0.25. The easiest way to obtain those ip addresses, by the way, is to contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP)
example: AT&T, Roadrunner, Time Warner, etc....
But, if your looking for the DEFAULT GATEWAY for you to access your router's configuration, most of the time it is found underneath the router itself. For Linksys the Default Gateway is 192.168.1.1
Best bet is to open up your browser and type in www.whatismyip.com this will give you your ip address from your isp provider (Internet Service Provider) If You need some DNS numbers (Domain Name Server), I use open DNS. they are pretty good at keeping out dodgy or rogue sites. Web sites have actual numbers for their address, not names. When you type in www.anynamehere.com, the computer goes to the DNS server to look up the name and get the number (IP address) just like looking up a phone book. If you choose to use Open DNS as the look up server. use these numbers in your settings. DNS1 220.127.116.11 DNS2 18.104.22.168 If you need to put in a gateway (like a front door to go out to the net) you will need to go into your router or modem settings to find this number, Or just call your ISP to get the information. You will need your email username & password before you ring Good Luck
To successfully use port forwarding you must know the IP address of the computer on the INSIDE of your network BUT your router is most likely using DHCP. This means your internal IP address isn't necessarily static. The "D" in DHCP is for dynamic.
First you need to ensure the the inside IP address of your machine isn't going to change. This can be accomplished 2 ways. 1) assign a static IP to your machine 2) Force specific DHCP IP address assignments by MAC (Hardware) address of your network port - this is the easiest way. Your router does NOT support this option (according to the manual) :-(
So #1 it is...
1) Your router defaults to allocate ALL inside address to DHCP - This will have to change. Alot of routers only use a subset of your internal range (eg: 192.168.0.100 - 192.168.0.150.) Yours will too!
Determine how many addresses you wish to reserve for DHCP (for a house 50 should be more than enough). Figure out the range (say 192.168.0.100 - 192.168.0.150.)
Also find out the DNS (Domain Name Servers) of your ISP, as you'll be needing them later.
Log into your router and go to Network settings / setup (pages 26 & 27 in the manual) make the changes and restart your router (and computer) you will now be using a DHCP address in the range you just specified! :-)
Now you will need to go to your network settings on your computer and change you r network setting from DHCP to manual. Enter a IP address such as 192.168.0.10, and your gateway (eg: 192.168.0.1) and your DNS server information that you got earlier.
Now restart your computer to make the changes take effect. We could do something from the command line but I'm trying to keep this short ;-)
If everything is working and you can use the web, check email etc. and your network settings show you are using the manual address you assigned. If you don't have internet review your earlier work (especially the DNS servers) you can always change your computer to use DHCP until your get it resolved.
Congrats most of the tough work is done!
Now you will be using the port forwarding option (Page 28 in your manual) to assign which incoming ports to map to your IP address
Rather than regurgitate other peoples work... see: http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Dlink/WBR-1310/eMule.htm
If you would like to know your incoming and outgoing mail server address, you must contact your email provider and inquire about such. This is because mail server addresses are based specifically on your email providers settings so there is no default. So for it to be easier just contact them and inquire.
I hope this has answered your question sufficiently. If you have more questions please post a reply and i would be happy to assist. Thanks.
when using a static IP you must also get the DNS server addresses from your router's manufacturer. the primary/secondary DNS for D-Link routers are 22.214.171.124/126.96.36.199 respectively. contact the customer support line of your product or do a Google search for"_______ dns" (____ being your product name)
You need to check your mail account settings and make sure the SMTP server is set to the fully qualified domain name of your ISP's SMTP server. Your ISP should be able to tell you what this is. You may be able to figure it out by looking at which server is set in the POP3 settings. It will likely be similar if not the same.
