    what is the brand and model of your router?
    if you are trying to completely expose your computer to the outside world, you want to get into the settings of your router and put your computer on the "dmz" list. i strongly recommend only doing this for troubleshooting reasons and taking it off after you are done. let me know if this helps, or you need further help!

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! :-)

NO idea where it is in the bios either but if you disconnct the switch from the motherboard, then that might tell the unit that it is diasbled and not in use. Not sure if that will work but it might do the trick.

In counter strike v1.6 online game i cant find servers list and in message it says no online games pass through filter settings


This is typically due to firewall settings on your machine and or router. If you are trying to play online over the internet make sure you have appropriate ports allowed through any firewalls you may have to the computer you are trying to play the game on.

BELLS RED FLAGS ALARMS WHISTLES WARNINGS
a site that requires you shut down protection,
has some intent of using that lack of protection.
usually its something nasty

online gaming should not require more than the opening of the NAT in the router to the address of the game host.
check the settings of the router many have prewritten rules for the major game hosts, that just need to have the checkbox marked.
I have 3 sons with different online gaming and have not had to disable the firewall

using the routers built in menu, cant tell you the address beyound 192.168.0.* because no details on router model, you can enable gaming mode, and leave the firewall intact.
goto the manufacturer(router) webpage and check the FAQ for your router

Norton keeps blocking my router because it thinks a particular website is introducing a "Portscan" worm. It then blocks all access to any website for 30 minutes! Patrick


If you are running XP service pack 2 or higher you have the Windows firewall installed.
Windows firewall will always conflict with a third party firewall and despite the fact Norton informs you the Windows firewall is disabled it's not.
Norton is a serious resource hog, consider removing Norton and going with one of the free antivirus apps like AVG 8.0 or Avast.
Enabling the Windows firewall and using a router will protect you, all modern routers have a built in hardware firewall.

Cant connect to wireless network set up in my home. will connect for a few seconds and then say that I cant be logged on to the network


Try going to the manufacturers website and find out how to access your router. Then try disabling your hardware firewall. You can also reset your modem and unplug all connections for about 10 secs and then do it again. I had that problem with a linksys router and I would get booted all of the time.

Cant get online through firefox or internet explorer explorer. box tells me i have router problems. tried usual reset procedure, got connected and then failed. Three attempts, same result. Comcast tells me...


ya linksys sucks because it has a hardware firewall. Go on to that and disable the hardware firewall. You can type 192.168.1.1 into the internet address bar.

Make sure you have a software firewall such as avg which is a great free one.
