Question about Linksys WRT54GX2 Wireless-G Broadband Router with SRX200 (LS-WRT54G2)

1 Answer

I dont know how to change NAT type.

I have had a linksys router for a year or two now with one computer connect by ethernet, two connect by wireless, and every once in a while my xbox which is also wireless. for the frist couple months we had this router, it would diconnect the internet about every 45 minutes and i would have to get behind a huge desk, play with wires and reinstall stuff just to get it to work. this stoped when we stopped using both the software for our isp and for the router. Now i need to change a configuration. I need the NAT type to be open for better use of Xbox Live. Not that I know there is a way to change my NAT type to open with the Linksys software, but is there a way to do it without this anoying software that i cannot find?

Since NAT has to be set on the Linksys...
you will have to use the software provided by linksys, or use a web based interface which connects to the linksys and you can do the respective changes...!!!

I cant find my Username or password to change my nat settings and dont know what to do to find them :/


Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Then click on Advanced then NAT settings. Then you can change those settings. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Can not ping our netvanta 3200 from behind a Linksys nat router


The switch between the NAT routers and the Netvanta had some faulty ports ... the physical connection was broken. Once the switch was replaced, the internet connection was restored.

make sure the security settings on router is WEP-Personal. I don't know what you have for internet but Dial-up, DSL, and satellite internet will not get NAT 1.

I have linksies router and 2 wire modem will they work together?


If the Modem has an ethernet port (looks like a large phone plug like the ones on the router) connect an ethernet cable from it to the "internet/wan" port on the router. If it doesn't there isn't much you can do.

Nat type


I have the same router (WRT300N) and this is what I did. I don't know if it will work for more than one Xbox360.

- Go to the Setting of the router.

- Applications & Gaming

- DMZ 
. Enable the DMZ
. Choice the Mac Adress under the Destination.
. If you don't know the Mac Adress of your Xbox360 click on the tab: DHCP CLIENT TABLE
.Now from there choice your Xbox360 ( the Xbox360 won't have a Client Name but hopefully you only have your Xbox360 and your computer)
and now save your setting and restart your Xbox360 and there you go NAT open. This also help if you get any kind of  LAG while someone is on the computer using the internet, your Xbox360 will be high priorty to the router.
HOPE THAT HELP
