Question about Computers & Internet

Disable router firewalls by logging in to the administration interface of your router and looking for a firewall section.
To log type http://192.168.0.1
The administration interfaces differ depending on the manufacturer and model, so your wireless router might not have a firewall section. If it does, click on that section and turn off the firewall.
Step2Forward a port. If the firewall is preventing an external computer from connecting to your internal client, you will need to forward a port to your client. Step3Find your internal IP address. Step4Click on "Start -> Run..." and enter "cmd" into the box. When the command-line pops up, enter "ipconfig" and hit "Enter." Find your IP address in the statistics that are printed out. Step5Refer to your software's documentation to find which port number must be forwarded. Step6Log in to your router's administration interface. Step7Click on "Port Forwarding" or an equivalently named section. The name of the section will differ depending on your router's manufacturer and model. Step8Add, on the correct port, a forward to your IP address. You will have to update this port forward in the future if your IP address changes. If your IP address changes often, ask your network administrator for a static IP address. This will fix your problem. Don't forget to rate my help! :-)
