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.

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).

SOURCE: Port Fowarding for my Logitech Webcam

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.

SOURCE: Cannot find wireless tab on Linksys router setup page

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. :)

SOURCE: Linksys WRT160N V3 Firewall issues

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.

Hi
I was having problems with my PS3 as well I did the following

updated firmwire

Also I assign static ip address on my PS3 and forward ports used by PS3 to static IP address of PS3 on routers firewall.

Ports used by PS3:
udp 3478
udp 3479
udp 3658
tcp.domain (port 53)
udp.domain (port 53)
tcp.http (port 80)
tcp.https (port 443)
udp.ssdp (port 1900)
tcp.amandaBackupInitiation (10080)
tcp.Jabber SSL/TLS (port 5223)

If your still getting problems configure the PS3 to be in your DMZ.

DMZ will be under applications and gaming. Just look for that setting in your routers setup page and add your PS3 IP address to it.

Your router does not have the advanced features that would be needed to do this. However, this can be controlled using parental controls on xbox live. Here is a link: http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/familysettings/xbox360/familysettings-intro.htm

Can't connect reliance ec325 on ubuntu7.1


This can be a real challenge.
If you cannot get on, then get the D-Link box as a quick fix.

You may , just may need to open what is called a UDP port for the router, which if you can get in then set the udp port to accept your vonage.
Vonage is pretty rock solid and most boxes have all udp ports open.

You issue is that you are using a PPP and that is a real source of trouble. You have to be able to tweak the incoming router box. Some ISP 's want you to use there phones and will block ports so you cannot do much.

Complain to your internet provider. Make them fix it or replace a box that will allow open communications with the Linksys / vonage box.

Found the check box - for Block WAN


I believe your initial problem was for PCAnywhere rgiht? just make sure ports 5631 (Data Port or TCP) and 5632(Status port or UDP) is properly opened/forwarded on your router's config page plus make sure that you instruct the router to forward those ports to the computer that you have PCAnywhere plus I have read some articles that newer versions of PCAnywhere 10.+ 11.+ will not work with older version 5.+

Now if it still doesn't work try setting up DMZ for you host computer(Note: enabling DMZ will open a wide range of ports, well common ports that is).
