When I got my 360 console, I went out to Walmart and got an Etherfast Cable/DSL router with a 4-Port switch and never had any issues with it. Probably the cheapest and most reliable way to go too. Hope this proves to be useful. Take it easy!

How can i reset my password on a bt hub


If you do not remember the login password then you have to reset the hub. Reset the red reset button with a paper clip and the hub will return to its factory settings.

Hi, i have the same issue and it isnt the firewall. But here is how to disable it if it is. Go to the router websight at 192.168.0.1 (type this directly into the browser bar at the top of your page. The password is usually password in lowercase. The username is admin. This will get you into the management screen for the router config. Look on the Left and you will see firewall. Click on this then ensure that there are no restrictions for HP.

I still have the issue with the printer so good luck.......scotty

Iv got a BT home hub 2 cant get conections for utorrent even though opened firewalls


There are ISPs that block utorrent. I found this explanation of how to do port forwarding on the BT home hub, though: http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/BT/BTHomeHub/Utorrent.htm
So, all I can suggest is to open the ports on your home hub as suggested above and to connect your computer straight to your home hub rather than to your CWR-854 (unless you actually have no such router and just picked that to ask the question under).
It is possible that someone has decided that you should not use torrents (they slow down everyone because they actually have the nerve to use the internet) and they are associated with thieves. Not to mention that there are tons of legit uses for them,
This could be someone in your ISP or your house. So do you have access to everything? You can poke around with telnet - can you access the ports on the other systems that utorrent accesses to make itself part of the network of systems that are downloading and sharing the torrent?
But if one knows the ports it is easy to block torrent.
If you have multiple routers that do nat, the home hub has to forward to your router, not to your system. So if your router is 192.168.3.12 and your system is 192.168.5.6, the BT home hub has to forward to the port on your router, on 192.168.3.12 , and your router has to forward to your system on 192.168.5.6. If the home hub tries to forward directly to your system (if you have multiple routers, which you might have because of the way you asked your question) then it won't work since your router hides 192.168.5.6.

Can anyone help me set up a dmz on this router(zyxel p 334)


Do you have a static IP to portforward with? i would not recommend DMZ because most routers lie - they still use a firewall even with DMZ.

Tried to hook up a hub from computer to xbox360 wont work


Hub? Use a router. I have mine hooked up through a older D-link wifi-G router and it works fine. A router also works as a hardware firewall so no one can hack into your network. And they are cheap to pick up used! Don't forget to lock your wireless network on it or turn it off to keep it secure. Hope that helped.

Modem to router to hub to wireless


What you can do is test the PS3 while wired to the router first. If that does not work you may need to forward ports on your router so it will allow the PS3 to accept connections through the router firewall.

Linksys 5-port Workgroup Hub


Hi Tman,

Here is a link to the Xbox ports. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/908874
In the firewall option, direct those ports to the IP of your Xbox. I don't have an xbox, but I would think there is someway to set a static IP on it. That way DHCP won't change your xbox ip when you reboot it. Some routers allow you to assign a specific IP to the xbox, but not sure about yours.
Visit this site, http://portforward.com/routers.htm It may have your router, and will tell you how to setup the ports for your xbox step by step.
