Question about 3Com OfficeConnect ISDN Lan Modem Router

1 Answer

Router problem Hello bc, I have a 3com office connect wireless router. I am not using the wireless features (cat5) anyway... I am having problems with games disconnecting, virtual online software (second life). It will say I have no connection? It seems like I can play about 10 mins. the it happens (also happens in games). An online gaming host called: GameRanger says some people will not be able to connect because I am behind a NAT router. I went in the router and disabled the NAT and then nothing works, I cant connect to the internet? I am not too worried about security, I am more interested in playing games!!! :o) We have two PCs on the router a PC and a Mac Pro. Any suggestions?

    Hello, Thanx for the suggestions but:
    I have my firewall disabled on my router
    And everything works fine if I bypass my router.

    Thanx for trying but:
    I have turned off the firewall for my router
    also everything works great if I bypass my router
    So it has to do with something in my router settings.

Try to disable any firewall you have, disable windows firewall if its enable and try to lower your Internet Security or use default if set to custom.

How to reset it?


Open your browser and enter the 3Com URL configuration address
http://192.168.1.1
Then go to the Menu Screen and select Reset to Factory Defaults.
When to change the rouer's wireless settings then you will also need to apply these changes to your wireless card in the computer so it can connect to the 3Com router.

Is it possible to have 2 pieces routers to expand the distribution of internet connection instead of using router to hub? what type of cabling should i used to do it? please help thanks


I guess you have a single incoming internet connection and wish it to be shared.

You only require one DSL / Cable router. To share this connectivity you will need Ethernet / Cat5 or wireless.

An ethernet switch or hub will enable you to extend connectivity.

All cable should be CAT5e or CAT6.
Suggest you consider the slightly more expensive switches that have auto-uplink. The negates the need of crossover cables.

Regards B.

undo the dmz and forward the ports 22 for ssh and any other services you need to the cisco. Ok dmz is not good... 3com calls port forwarders virtual servers just add what you need there... hope that helps.
