There should be both a model number and a serial number on either the bottom and/or back of the router. The model number is what the port forwarding site needs. Sometimes the router has a vesion number as well. Be sure to provide this information too. If youre still stuck, head to netgear's website and try to match the router visually. Yet another thing you can try is to access the router via the internal gateway. The status section here can give you your model number.

World at war, Can't play online. Getting a message that say's ESRB not rate'd


In case you don't know, Gamespy which were the ones responsible for the maintenance of servers such as CoD: World at War among others... were shut down. There's no fix to that unfortunately. But people are trying to make their own servers in the meantime. I guess you have to wait... or hope for a miracle

Accessing emails on email server through HAMACHI VPN INSTALL HAMACHI ON BOTH...


accessing emails on email server through HAMACHI VPN

INSTALL HAMACHI ON BOTH THE SERVER AND THE REMOTE CLIENT . THEN JOIN THEM ON TO THE SAME NETWORK, FOR FURTHER NOTES ON HAMACHI HOWTO GO TO : HAMACHI HOW-TO

CONNECT THE TWO AND PING EACH OTHER BOTH WAYS, THEN TRY TO ACCESS THE FILE SHARES ON THE SERVER TO MAKE SURE THE CONNECTION IS REAL AND LIVE.

YOU SHOULD KNOW THE USER ID FOR THE EMAIL ADDRESS YOU ARE GOING TO DOWNLOAD AS WELL AS THE PASSWORD.....
CONFIGURE YOUR EMAIL CLIENT....

IN THE INCOMING AND THE OUTGOING SERVERS OF THE EMAIL CLIENT YOU HAVE TO PUT THE NETWORK NAME THAT WAS GIVEN ON THE EMAIL SERVER TO THE HAMACHI CLIENT.

NEXT IS TO ADD THAT NAME AND THE HAMACHI IP ADDRESS IN THE HOSTS FILE SO THAT THE DNS IS RESOLVED CORRECTLY.....

In counter strike v1.6 online game i cant find servers list and in message it says no online games pass through filter settings


This is typically due to firewall settings on your machine and or router. If you are trying to play online over the internet make sure you have appropriate ports allowed through any firewalls you may have to the computer you are trying to play the game on.

I want to use my hp g2 server to set up an internet radio station


Ah , I have been down this road myself :-) ...... I can give you a few words of advice......

  • As far as the server itsef , it really doesn't need anything spectaculer in regards to hardware & specs.....a box running XP with 512mb of RAM would suffice...so your server should be fine
  • Bandwith - you are going to need ALOT of it if you are streaming more then 64kb's....typically if you are playing any sort of music you stream at 128kb....so make sure you have a hefty data plan!
  • For the server itself , use the "Shoutcast" software for hosting the station....it is easy to use , has plenty of support and documentation....you can literally have a station up in 5 mins!
  • For broadcasting you can use the Winamp program with the "Shoutcast DSP" plugin...but if you are playing alot of music , want advertisments and like to DJ I would recommend something like "SAM 4"
Just a quick overview to get you started , all you really have to do is download the shoutcast server software , edit the config file - which includes the admin password , the port to broadcast on , the max number of listners you want etc..........

You then need to do some port forwarding, opening up the port on your router and sending the connections to your server....actually doing it is easy, but it varies by router model, you can use this site for a step by step, just select your router , and then select "Shoutcast" http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm

From there you launch the server program , and connect to the server with Winamp or SAM....and now your on the air!


SHoutcast documentation to setup DJ and server:

I have alot of exp. with this , you didnt really specify a specfic problem or question , so if you need anything else be sure to leave a comment here and I can help you even more!

Cant play online games with my Gateway® M-6864 FX Black w/ Orange Accent. can still get on the internet but cant play online games.


Hi Bob,

If you are having issue playing online games but able to surf the internet, It means that the Firewall is not allowing you to play online games. Normally this is cause by a Firewall protection. As of now, DSL modems has Firewall features and you can manage them if you know so. But if you don't, contact your Internet provider to resolve this issue.
