Static IP address not open

I tried following the suggestions on how to assign a static IP address for my torrent software. when i checked it in the internet using port forwarding checker, it says the port is still not open. i believe i followed the instructions to the detail and saved all required steps (assigning static IP in my compu, saving it to the port forwarding config in the router, unchecking uPnp, adding it to the exclusion list in my firewall, etc)
what can i do?
do u have any suggestion?

  • Classic view: Open Network Connections
    Category view: Select Network and Internet Connections, and thenNetwork Connections.
  • Double-click on your active LAN or Internet connection.
  • Click Properties
  • In the General tab, highlight the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) item, and clickProperties.
  • In the General tab, click Use the following IP address, and enter: - IP address. The static IP address you want to assign to this computer (try 192.168.1.110 to start). - Subnet mask. Subnet mask used by your router (try 255.255.255.0 to start). - Default gateway. IP address of your router's default gateway (try 192.168.1.1 to start).
  • In Use the following DNS server addresses, enter all the IP addressses for the DNS servers your router uses (or you can try your router's address, probably 192.168.1.1).
  • Click OK.

WRT4G2 VI wireless router. I was upating the firmware when the power flashed. I have no access to the router's gui and the router is not broadcasting. I am not getting a dhcp address


do a hard reset for the router by pressing the reset button for 10-20 seconds...
check whether its getting a dhcp address...
if it is still not getting an ip address, then try to assign a static ip address in the range of your router on your computer...

for example...
The default ip address of linksys is 192.168.1.1.............
then assign

IP address 192.168.1.5
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Default gateway 192.168.1.1

Also assign a static DNS
Primary DNS : 8.8.8.8
Secondary DNS : 8.8.4.4

Now try to open the GUI of your router...

Can not get my xbox to connect to my netgear 614v7 router am using a lan connection but it cant get a IP address from the router any ideas ??


Hi,
In this regard, I would recommend you to forward certain port no’s on
the Router.

Port numbers: UDP- 88, TCP/UDP- 3074

It is in this context, I would suggest you to please try with the
following troubleshooting steps:

A) Assign static IP and DNS address to the XBOX.

1. Assign IP address as: 192.168.1.50; Subnet mask as: 255.255.255.0
and Default Gateway as: 192.168.1.1
2. Assign Primary DNS Address as: 192.168.1.1 and Secondary DNS
Address as: 4.2.2.2

# Please Contact X-Box Technical Support to assign the Static IP
Address on Your X-Box.


C) Open the ports on the Router using the following steps:

1. Click on Port Forwarding under Advanced.
2. Click on ‘Port Forwarding’ on the left hand column on the screen.
3. On the bottom of the screen, click on ‘Add Custom Service’.
4. Give a name to the service (for example, XBOX1).
5. Select Service Type as UDP and key in the starting port and ending
port as 88.
6. In the Server IP Address specify 192.168.1.50
7. Hit ‘Apply’.
8. Click on 'Wan Setup' Under 'Advanced'.
9. Check the box 'DMZ Server'. Type in the IP Address 192.168.1.50.
Click On 'Apply'.
10. Log Out of the Router Page.

Please repeat Steps 3 – 7 to configure the ports “UDP/TCP 3074”.

Netgear DGN 2000 won't connect to internet by cable / wifi works


Might I suggest looking at the routers configuration. This can be done by typing in 192.168.1.1 into your web browser. Typically the default log in is: User Admin, Password is password. You want DHCP set on. Save all your settings. Then reset to factory default. There should be a reset button on the router. This will reset it to when it was new- any changes you made will be gone.

Port setting to allow my xbox to run games


Hello djand2kidz,


Inorder to resolve this we need to open application ports for the Xboxconnection. This problem can be resolve by any of the following:

  1. Opening port Numbers TCP 88, TCP/UDP 3074
  2. Lowering MTU size and Disabling SPI
  3. Enabling UPnP
  4. Enabling DMZ
  5. Upgrading the firmware of the router.
  6. Set NAT filtering to open (Only available on WGR614v6, v7, and v8)
Here are theoptions on how your Xbox connected to the internet. Opening Port Numbers TCP 88, TCP/UDP 3074:
1. Make sure that Xbox has valid IPaddress of the same range of the Netgear router.
2.
Assign static IP address on Xbox.The following values should be used while assigning static IP address on theXbox.

IP Address: 192.168.1.x (e.g. 192.168.1.200)
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1

Note: Here ‘x’ can be any uniquenumber from 2 to 254 depending upon the IP address assigned to remainingcomputers in your network.

3. Oncestatic IP address is assigned, the requisite port numbers can be open using thesteps below.

a. Open the browser(Internet Explorer or Netscape) and type the IP address of the Router(192.168.1.1) in the address bar.
b. It will prompt youto Login into the Router (Username = “admin” & Password = “password”).
c. Select "Port Forwarding" under "Advance"
d. Select "Port Forwading" under "Service Type"
e. Click on "Add Custom Service"
f. Prepare the following Service for opening port 88 TCP/UDP.
g. Clcik on "APPLY" after creating Xbox_1
h. Again click on ‘Add Custom service and thenenter the values to open port number TCP/UDP 3074.
i. Click on ‘Apply’ after creating Service Xbox_2.
j. OnceXbox_1 and Xbox_2 services are created you will there entries under ‘PortForwarding/Port Triggering Option.

2. make sure you will input all ip address correctly including the subnet mask, gateway and dns numbers
3. if its still not working try to upgrade the firmware or software of your router, maybe its corrupted thats why its not accepting the settings

Can not access my ip address in order to change NAT settings


Hi Brengolfter3,

My guess is, the IP to your router is still 192.168.x.x. Only way you are going to be able to get to the router, is to set your machine to a static IP, and then try to get to the router.
This site tells you how set it to static, http://corz.org/comms/hardware/router/static.ip.address.php

The IP you listed is assigned to Easton Utilites, so I have asume it is your internet IP. You might want to check the Xbox troubleshooting for the Xbox, so you don't have to disable your Nat, which is a firewall, by default. Good Luck!

I cant open an ip address for an assigned webpage.


There are several private address ranges that may be affecting the operations you are attempting to perform see table

IP Address Ranges Reserved for Private Use
Class Networks A 10.0.0.0 through 10.255.255.255 B 172.16.0.0 through 172.31.0.0 C 192.168.0.0 through 192.168.255.0
All addresses in this range in your network are only directly addressable to machines within your network at most by default. The router to your ISP and the internet as a whole maps these addresses onto the IP address assigned statically or dynamically by your ISP to the WAN side of your router using an address translation (NAT) service. So where you are attempting to connect to this device from may be significant. You may need to review your setup guide to see if it references router configuration requirements to support access to the Web_xpander port from devices not attached to your internal network. If you have multiple internal networks (address ranges and not devices) this could also be an issue.

Secondly -- does the Setup software for the device tell you the IP address assuming it is dynamically assigned. Otherwise how would you know what the address is. Static assignment could resolve that issue however you must understand your network to assign your own address. Given a theoretical network where the router gateway is 192.169.0.1 and the network mask is 255.255.255.0 the valid network addresses are 192.168.1.0 - 192.168.1.255. A router or other device supporting DHCP address assignment reserves another range such as 192.168.0.100 for 50 leases (ending at 192.168.0.149) for dynamic assignment to requesting network adapters. Ignoring the 0 and 255 address this leaves open to the network administrator (you in your home) the possibility of assigning static IP address in the ranges of say 192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0.99 and 192.168.0.150 - 192.168.0.254 or so. You as well as the DHCP server are required to assure that there are no duplicate IP addresses assigned on your network. So statically assigning 192.168.0.100 (which is DHCP assignable in our case) could and would most likely result in duplicate addressing and network problems.
