Question about Zyxel P660HW-D1 Router

1 Answer

Port Forwarding I just bought a new computer and I need to do port forwarding in order to use torrents. I did this successfully on my previous machine and I followed to same steps this time (i'm using the same Zyxel router as before) but the DNS servers appeared to have changed when i check on the ipconfig/all command - the DNS is now the default ip address (192.168.1.1) - I have set up a static ip address but it's still not forwarding.

Hello just got sorted, hope this is helpful ,,,i logged onto port forwarding.com and a long story short , basically had to interigate my zyxel router, what you do is fix the ip add of your wireless connection (the computer) to a manual fix eg. mine is now fixed to 192.168.1.40 with a port tunnel 46207(utorrent preferences)i picked this out of my head as there is a scale from one no. to another.   you then get the password to your router and get into its internal settings via password and go to the port forwarding section, you then tell the router that the computer has a fixed ip add (the one above ) and dedicate a fixed port or tunnell/window mine is 46207save this setting on your router and your home and dry, basically your telling the router that the computer has a fixed add, with port window??? and off it goes ,,,,portfward.com tells al

IP Camera Port Forwarding


The best way to find out what is being forwarded is to look at the traffic with the Wireshark program. You can install this from the Internet.

Wireshark is perfect for this but you have to learn how to filter traffic or there will be too much information collected. It is also regarded as (a bit of) a burglar tool so don't use it at work without permission.


I would recommend that you connect a PC to a wired port on the inside LAN and configure the router to forward outside requests to the PC. When you run wireshark on the inside PC with a filter that selects for tcp port 80 (or tcp port == 80) you will see traffic forwarded from the router.

Use your outside machine to request a page from the router's outside address and the port you are forwarding. If you have forwarding set up correctly, you should see a TCP connection attempt. If you are not running a web server on the inside PC, there will be no connection so you will only see the SYN packet from.
outside. If you have a web server on port 80, you will see a fair number of packets in both directions. (SYN -- SYN-ACK -- SYN -- some HTTP Headers an HTTP GET / a response and FIN -- FIN-ACK).

Once you see successful port forwarding (your are forwarding TCP packets, right?) at the PC, change the destination of the forwarding to the camera.

This is really technical but Wireshark is so good that it is quite easy to use.

Hi, I'm having problems port forwarding my Thompson TG585 v8. Im trying to port forward for utorrent application but it does not seem to work, everytime i get an error saying "port is not...


- Please check if it's UDP or TCP. You might have selected TCP for port forwarding but Torrent also uses UDP. For some ports that's important to make both forwarding. One for TCP, the other for UDP.

- If this doesn't work, you need to go deeper. You need to have access to an external computer on internet (a friend) from which you can start a telnet. For instance :
telnet mypublicip 45682

On your side, you need to check what's coming on your network interface. Two options to achieve this :
- Either you book a linux live cd (kubuntu), and you run in a console :
sudo tcpdump -ni eth0
(eth0 is the first ethernet adapter of your workstation).
- Either you use wireshark on Windows, this should do the trick, but you cannot be sure that there is no other software blocking on your current installation.

Forwarding ports


Port Forwarding is explained indeepth by the torrent companies help FAQs section,

Heres a link that may helps you too....

http://www.fixya.com/support/r4582466-set_up_speed_touch_5x6v6_broadband_modem

In the Admin function you can accept the ports if you have the correct servers address's
You must add them to your firewalls permission settings and then try the test again,

Note ,

Even with Port Forwarding set up,
you will also require the correct band width and downloader from the torrent site,
ie,
Bit Comet and Bitcomet Excelerator

The downloader and the high speed function,together.
