I want to unblock the facebook sites


There will be an option on the router's web configuration page called URL blocking or web filtering. Your can unblock it from there. For accessing the router's web configuration page you have to type the default gateway on the brower's address bar. Your can your IE or Firefox.

Steps to find the default gateway

Start->Control panel->network and internet connections->network connection-> Right click Local area connection-> Status->Support

This will show you the default gateway something like 192.168.1.1

The open Internet explorer type 192.168.1.1 on address bar and unblock the facebook

Cannot link vpn. direct from internet provider works. when try connection via d-link dir625 does not connect. does allow internet access


Ok to Setup you VPN follow the instructions below. You can configure DI-804HV, DI-808HV, and DI-824VUP+ by web management interface. Type 192.168.0.1 (The LAN IP is 192.168.0.1 by default) in the browser, and then input user name: admin (there is no password by default) to pass authentication of web management interface. Then finish the configurations as showed below on Gateway A and Gateway B. Configurations of Gateway A 􀂾 Model: DI-804HV (DI-808HV, or DI-824VUP+) 􀂾 Firmware version: v1.40 (You can download the latest firmware on D-Link’s website.) 􀂾 WAN IP Address: 14.15.16.17 (Static IP) 􀂾 LAN IP Address: 10.5.6.1 (Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0) 􀂾 VPN Configurations: 􀂄 Enable VPN function on Gateway A. 􀂄 Tunnel Name: toGatewayB 􀂄 VPN Method: IKE (Main mode) 􀂄 Local Subnet: 10.5.6.0 􀂄 Local Netmask: 255.255.255.0 􀂄 Remote Subnet: 172.23.9.0 􀂄 Remote Netmask: 255.255.255.0 􀂄 Remote Gateway: 22.23.24.25 􀂄 Pre-share Key: hr5xb8416aa9r6 􀂄 IKE Proposal (Please remember to add the correct proposal ID into the list of IKE Proposal Index when you finish inputting the following information.) 􀀹 Proposal Name: toGatewayB 􀀹 DH Group: Group 2 􀀹 Encryption Algorithm: 3DES 􀀹 Authentication Algorithm: SHA1 􀀹 Life Time: 28800 􀀹 Life Time Unit: Second 􀂄 IPSec Proposal (Please remember to add the correct proposal ID into the list of IKE Proposal Index when you finish inputting the following information.) 􀀹 Proposal Name: toGatewayB 􀀹 DH Group: Group 2 􀀹 Encapsulation Protocol: ESP 􀀹 Encryption Algorithm: 3DES 􀀹 Authentication Algorithm: SHA1 􀀹 Life Time: 3600 􀀹 Life Time Unit: Second 4. Verify the VPN connection Before you start to establish VPN connection between Gateway A and Gateway B, please make sure the Internet connection between Gateway A and Gateway B is workable. You can use “Ping Test” tool on Gateway A (or Gateway B), and input the IP address of Gateway B (or Gateway A) to see if there is any response from its peer device. Connect a PC (called PC_A) to the LAN port of Gateway A, and connect another PC (called PC_B) to the LAN port of Gateway B. Start to “Ping” PC_B on PC_A, then Gateway A will start to establish IPSec connection with Gateway B. If you can get “Ping” responses from PC_B on PC_A, then it means the tunnel has been established successfully. You can also check the “VPN Status” page with web management interface to verify the status of VPN connections. Figure 1: VPN status of Gateway A after IPSec connection has been established. Figure 2: VPN status of Gateway B after IPSec connection has been established.
Hope this helps

Change NAT to open


I’m not going to go into too much detail on what your NAT is or why it should be open, but in short, if your NAT isn’t open, you will have a hard time finding games, and it won’t let you join a friends party half of the time. So lets fix this problem.
  1. Go to your computer, and get to Network Connections. To do this, you will click on the start menu, and go to “My Network Places”. Once you get there, click on “view network connections” to the right in the Network tasks box. If your computer is hooked up directly to the router, you will be using the Local Area Network, and if you are wireless, you will be using the Wireless Area Network
  2. Right click on your connection, and then go to “Status.” If you are using XP, click the “Support” tab at the top. If you are running Vista, you will need to click the button that says “Details.”
  3. After you click on “Details” or “Support”, look for and copy down the Default Gateway, and the Subnet Mask. You will need this later.
  4. Close this out, and go to your 360 dashboard. Go to the system blade at the very end of the dashboard, and go to Network settings.
  5. Go down to Edit Settings. Change your IP address settings from Automatic to Manual.
  6. Depending on what your default gateway was, you may have different settings than mine.
  7. For IP Address, enter your default gateway. Instead of one digit for the last number, you will need to change it to something such as 109.
  8. Enter the Subnet Mask(default for most networks is 255.255.255.0) and Default Gateway in the boxes, and press OK.
  9. Now, run a test for Xbox Live. More than likely, you will end up failing the DNS check. This is alright, because we will take care of this in the next step.
  10. Go back to Network Settings, and then change your DNS settings to Manual. For primary DNS server, enter your default gateway.
  11. Run another Xbox Live test, and you should pass everything. However, your NAT will probably still be Strict or Moderate. If it is open, then you are done!
  12. Go back to your computer, and open up your browser. Type your default gateway into the address bar, and press enter. A username/password box should come up. This site has a pretty complete list of routers and passwords.
  13. Once in, look for a link titles “Applications and Gaming” or something along the lines of that. Click it, and then find DMZ. Click it.
  14. Click the “Enable” radio button, and type in the last(4th) octet of your IP(octet1.octet2.octet3.octet4) Save your settings, and exit.
  15. Go back to your 360 dashboard, and run another Xbox Live test. If all went well, you should now have an open NAT! Give yourself a pat on the back, and dance around the room a couple times

Configuration Utility


Can you ping the router? I mean open a dos shell, type ping -tf 192.168.1.254 - what are the results? Maybe the ping fails, because you need to have your pc set to the same subnet address, to access the router on that IP. Test ping to your own gateway address first.. That will work & show you what to expect from a working ping. You get the gateway address by opening a dos shell & typing ipconfig /all - that shows the current IP address plus the gateway address. Actually, the gatway address might be the same as the router config address, unless you have a NAT function turned on.. Anyway, if you change your IP address to 192.168.1.252 - For example, you will no longer be able to access the internet, but shud be able to enter the configuration web page of the router.. Try the router default settings first. Another thing is that some routers require a direct cable called a 'crossover' cable to connect to the router or you have to go via a hub or a switch, with standard ethernet cables.. This probably looks confusing, but if it does not help, pls post your questions here.. Rgds,

Configuring leviton router


You can get the router's IP address from the functioning PC. Go to the command prompt by clicking on Start / Run ...and then enter "cmd" in the text area and click "OK". In the black window that pops up...type the command "ipconfig". The computer will list it's IP address, subnet mask and default gateway. The default gateway is the router's IP address.

To enter the Default gateway (router) address in the PC that isn't working...click on Start / Control Panel / Network Connections / Local Area Connection / Properties. In the "Local Area Connection Properties" window....scroll down and click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) to highlight it. Now click on the properties button.

In the Internet Protocol Properties Window....click on Use the Following IP address:...now you can enter the IP address for the computer to use, the subnet mask, and the default gateway. The default gateway and subnet mask are the same as the working PC. Hopefully you already know what the IP address for this computer is supposed to be....it must be unique on this section of the network. To function properly, this computer also needs to know what DNS server(s) to use. You can enter the DNS server address at the bottom of this screen.

If you don't know the DNS server addresses, you can look them up on the other machine also. Use the command prompt as described above and enter the command: "ipconfig /all" Look for the DNS server addresses in the command output.

Cannot connect second computer to my networn


I have listed several things here that you can use to find the problem. Sorry this is so long...network problems can be very tedious to find.

First check your version of Windows:
Double click on "My Computer", then click on "View System Information" to make sure you have at least Service Pack 1...or better yet....Service Pack 2.

Next check your Windows XP network settings:
Click on Start....Control Panel....Network Connections...Local Area Connection...Properties(button). Scroll down the list to find Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) and click on it to highlight it. Now click the properties button below the list. You should now be able to click the small buttons to select both of the "Obtain....automatically" choices for IP address and DNS server. Click on "OK" to close each of the windows.

Now you can test your computer to see if it is "talking" to the router: Click on Start...Run...and type "cmd" in the small box and click "OK". This will open a black command window where you tell the computer what to do. Type the command "ipconfig" and press return (enter). This will list your ip address, subnet mask, and default gateway. Make a note of the default gateway address so you can use it for the next test. If the IP address begins with 192.168...then your computer is probably communicating with the router okay. If your IP address is blank or starts with 169...then your network connection to the router may NOT be working.

The final test!!! Use the default gateway address from the last step to do a "ping" test. In the black command window...type "ping" followed by the default gateway address. For example: IF the default gateway happens to be 192.168.1.1....then type the ping command this way: ping 192.168.1.1

If the result is a list of replies from the gateway address...great!! Your network connection is working. If the ping command results in a list of "request timed out", or something else, then your network connection needs more help.

The ultimate test is to try using the Internet with your browser.
If this works, next try typing your gateway address into the brower address bar. It should connect you to the router setup page.(?)

Let me know the results of each of these tests, and I'll be happy to assist you further, if needed.

Adding additional computer problem


Yes, the xp machine connects to the net. DHCP is not enabled. The ipconfig/all command brings up the correct static ip address, subnet mask, and default gateway. But it does also say under the ip configuration that ip routing is not enabled. I did have the 2000 machine connected when I first set up the router yesterday, but I booted up my laptop to try to set up a wireless connection, and then I had to reinstall the entire router set-up.

Belkin router


A couple of items to check -- these will not fix the issue but may isolate the problem.


Turn all machines on before the test and do not turn off until after

On at least one wired computer that is working and maybe all wireless computers I want you to do the following

Click Start then All Programs then Accessories then Command Prompt

In the window that opens type

ipconfig /all

press enter then record all of the following for each adapter
  • adapter
  • IP address
  • Subnet Mask
  • Default Gateway
  • one or more DNS addresses
The back in the window enter the following command using the default gateway from the wired connection (your router address)

ping (default gateway)

you will either get 4 timeouts -- the connection fails or 4 messages with elapsed times generally measured in ms or milliseconds.

What you are looking for in the above
Good entries base
x.y.x match each other if subnet mask is right
u should be unique for the network
Wired IP address x.y.z.u not 0.0.0.0 may be 192.168.0.u
SubNet Mask ?.?.?.? assuming 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway x.y.z.? not 0.0.0.0 may be 192.168.0.1
DNS addresses ?.?.?.? not 0.0.0.0
where at least one is not zero.

Then wireless entries should be
Wired IP address x.y.z.u not 0.0.0.0 may be 192.168.0.u
SubNet Mask same as wired
Default Gateway same as wired
DNS addresses same as wired
If these are wrong there is a configuration error either in the router or wireless adapters depending on how you want your network setup.


each connected adapter wired and each wireless should also
successfully ping the default gateway or router address

If the ipconfig is right and the wired config has successful pings, then every wireless adapter that fails has a wireless config issue.

If you are willing to work through this let me know and reply with information in a comment to this issue.

You may also want to address wireless security
