Port Forwarding A. Determining the IP Address and MAC Address of a Computer: Note: Please use the computer for which the Ports are to be opened: For Windows 2000/XP users: 1. Please click on Start and select Run. 2. Type in cmd and click on OK. 3. In the Command Prompt, please type ipconfig/all then press Enter or Return key. 4. Please make sure that the Ethernet adapter has an IP Address that is the same range as the router (e.g. for the computer and for the router). 5. Please note down the IP address and Physical address. B. Reserving an IP Address: 1. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator. 2. Connect to the router by typing or in the address field and click Enter or Return key. 3. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password". Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it. 4. When the setup page opens, click on LAN IP Setup under Advanced tab. 5. Click on Add under Address Reservation. 6. Under Address Reservation window, please select the radio button of the computer you wish to add from the Address Reservation Table. 7. If the computer you want is not on the list, please click on the Refresh button to update the table. 8. If the computer is still not on the Address Reservation Table, please type in the IP Address, MAC Address (Physical Address), and Device Name of the computer you wish to add. 9. Click the Add button when done. C. Opening Pre-Defined Ports for Internet Services: 1. Click on the option with the name Port Forwarding/Port Triggering under the Advanced menu. 2.

Enter the IP address of the computer in the Server IP Address box. 5. Click the Add or Apply button. 6. Repeat all steps to open more ports. Note: If the name of the Internet service does not appear in the drop down list, you may manually open the ports for that Internet service. Please follow the steps below: D. Opening Ports for Games, Applications or Custom Ports: 1. Click on Add Custom Service button. 2. Type the service name in the Service Name box and the lower range numbers in the Starting Port box. 3. If the application uses only a single port; type in the same port number in the Ending Port box. 4. If the application uses a range of ports; type in the higher range numbers in the Ending Port box. 5. Type the IP address of the computer in the Server IP Address box. Click Apply button. 6. It will then refresh to the Port Forwarding page, and will show the list of all ports opened in tabulation. 7. Repeat all steps to add more ports for more services. E.

I have a netgear DGN 3300 wireless-N router. I can't seem to open any web pages. Any advise? Could it be my router settings?

its either router settings or your computers internal security settings
(Anti Virus or Firewall).

I would reset it and start again personally or.........

Try running your internet connection wizard again and that will replace the existing connection to the net when its finished,

If still nothing then reset the adaptor settings

I have an example of a router set up on this link below....

Please rate me thanks

Netgear DGN 2000 won't connect to internet by cable / wifi works

Might I suggest looking at the routers configuration. This can be done by typing in into your web browser. Typically the default log in is: User Admin, Password is password. You want DHCP set on. Save all your settings. Then reset to factory default. There should be a reset button on the router. This will reset it to when it was new- any changes you made will be gone.

Hangs with Bittorrent

That is because you need to open a port on router with the same number assigned to your torrent client.

You need to check port number on bittorrent configuration, then access router control panel typing router IP on internet explorer address bar and configure the router to open the port.
