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.

How to play minecraft


Minecraft is and easy but challenging game to play. First thing you will need to do is buy the game or try the demo at www.minecraft.net. Once install open up the game and choose the type of game you would like to play. If survival mode you want to build a house or tunnel to hide in at night so the ghouls don't kill you. Minecraft is a game of crafting and building pretty much any structure you can imagine. You can also join someone else's server by finding the ip their server is hosted on!

Online session making problem


There can be particular issues related
to playing through a router or firewall,
including sharing your internet
connection via another PC. In order to
join or host a Conflict: Global Storm
game from behind a firewall you must
open the following ports (inbound and
outbound):

UDP ports 4658, 6500, 10010,
13139, 27900

TCP ports 4658, 6667, 28910,
29900, 29901, 29920

To host a game from behind a router
with NAT (Network Address
Translation), or a firewall, you will
need to enable ‘port forwarding’ on
the following ports to route data to the
IP address of your PC;

UDP ports 4658, 6500

TCP port 4658

If you continue to have problems
connecting to servers or creating
them, try bypassing your router or
firewall by connecting your PC directly
to your broadband connection.

If possible make sure you or your friends are not behind NAT or firewall. It is much easier to connect if you have all public IPs and not something starting with 192.168...

Do not use ALT+TAB and do not enter Windows when multiplayer is running. It will kill the connection to GameSpy servers that are needed even when you are creating server to your own computer.

Sometimes in the lobby the server just dies quietly and you need to the restart the whole game. You will notice this when players just stop coming to your server. This usually happens because you switched to Windows even for one second and sometimes it just happens without any reason.

Every time my freinds invite me to a game in call of duty world at war it say the games session is no longer available what can i do to fix that


Try turning off your console and turning it back on- that's what I did. Are you using a wireless adapter? If so, then it may have trouble connecting. Try moving it to an area closer to your router. Also, the cod5 servers **** lol, so it may clear up in time. If you haven't checked already, make sure his game isn't full.

What game are you trying to host? did you already open the port on your router for others to come in and play? Ask for the port number and try to open it on your router's set up page. call your router manuv\facturer once you already have the port number/ numbers.

Port forwarding problems, playing Total Annihilation (TA)


I think you may have to find out the port used by the game and set that port to be allowed access against your specific pc IP address in the virtual servers menu in your routers settings.
