Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
I'd like to block certain UDP ports on my linksys router so that STEAM will not work, but I can't seem to find anything under "Blocked Services" in the Access Restrictions tab to do this. Can anyone assist?
Hi Try the below steps:
1. Log into the configuration page of your Linksys using a web browser by entering 192.168.1.1 in the URL bar. Enter "admin" as both the username and the password. These are the default settings; if any of the settings have been changed, then enter the updated information.
2. Select "Port Range Forwarding" from under the "Applications & Gaming" tab on from the configuration page. Enter the name of the application in the "Application" field, and the starting and ending port numbers in the appropriate fields, as many applications use a range of consecutive numbers for the port number. If your application uses only one port number then input the same number in both the "Start" and the "End" fields.
3.Click on the "Save" button at the bottom of the window to save any changes you have made. Make sure your changes have taken effect by testing an application.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: WAN requests
The feature you are referring to "Block Wan Requests" is either enabled or disabled In the pane to the right, where there are 4 subcategories to "Block Wan Requests", Block Anonymous, Filter Multicast, Filter NAT, and Filter IDENT. These 4 subcategories are your choices for blocking WAN requests. They can be either enabled, or disabled.

SOURCE: Port Forwarding On Linksys RV016
No change needed on the RV016 - same IP & Port
Check settings on the NEW Workstation (Remote Access grants / Ports assignment)
And your Computer as it is still looking for the old workstation (RDP is more on the computer's identity not the IP address).

Do you know how to do portforwarding in general?
Have a look at the manual - page 21. You can also find it here: ftp://ftp.linksys.com/downloads/NA/userguide/WRT310N_V10_UG_B-WEB.pdf
You should give your computer a static IP address (or enable static DHCP), otherwise the forwarding will fail if DHCP assings a different address to your computer.
Important is that you have two entries, one for port 8888 /TCP and a second one for port 8081 /Both.
If this helped, please come back and leave a comment, to help others with the same problem.

Hi...this is an unusual problem.
Is your model the BEFSR41W? Linksys describe this as a 'wireless ready router', and it seems to require a PCMCIA card to be inserted in the back of the router, to enable wireless connectivity.
I'm just wondering if the router lost communication with the card, causing your wireless options to disappear?
However, first things first. As you have (correctly) reset the router, all your settings have been cleared, including ISP information (hence the internet connection is lost). Your first priority is to set up your router again, and the Linksys website has a downloadable manual, quick install guide and tips which will help with this.
When you are up and running - and assuming I have the right model - try removing and re-inserting the PCMCIA card at the back of the router, and see if the router re-detects it. If successful, this should bring back your wireless options.
I hope this helps, but please post again on Fixya if not. It does seem odd to have lost the wired connection before the reset.
Good luck. :)

You need to check first if it is the program that is causing this or not. If you have a computer without the program, have it connected to the router. If it connects it may be the program. Check if switching cable may help. IT may be a faulty cable. It may also be something in your PC that is causing this one.
