NetGear WGR826V has no clear port forwarding section in the setup, the mamnual is as clear as brick as to forwarding...so how do I forward a port on this brain dead router?
– If you select 'Same as Incoming port' then all incoming traffic on specified Service is
forwarded to LAN server without modifying Destination Port.
– If you select 'Forward to another port range' then all incoming traffic received on the
Service port (or range of ports) is forwarded to this port or range of ports of the LAN
– This field is disabled if action selected is "Block Always".
– If you want to forward the traffic to a single port then enter port value in start port and
leave finish port empty.
– If you want to forward the traffic to range of ports then enter non zero value in finish port
and make sure that service record attached to this rule has range of ports and range is equal
to that of forwarding ports.
– For example if you select Service as HTTP (TCP/80), LAN Server IP address as
192.168.15.10 and Forwarding port as 8080 then all traffic coming from internet on
– TCP/80 (HTTP) to this Router is redirected to TCP/8080 port of 192.168.15.10
• WAN Users: These settings determine which packets are covered by the firewall rule, based on
their source (WAN) IP address. Select the desired option:
– Any All IP addresses are covered by this firewall rule.
– Address range If this option is selected, you must enter the "Start" and "Finish" fields.
– Single address Enter the required address in the "Start" fields.
• Log: This determines whether packets covered by this firewall rule are logged. Select the
– Never - never log traffic considered by this firewall rule, whether it matches or not.
– Match - Log traffic only it matches this firewall rule. (The action is determined by this
Ok well this is out of the manual, to me it seems straight forwards, but it is a brick too though, there is an example to help you, basically you tell it the Address of the PC, (Right click on NIC and get address) that you want ports to go to.. then ALLOW it, UN-disable actually.. in the tables.
