Re: IP Address

There should be a small pin hole access at the rear of the router, press in for about 10 seconds with a ball point pen and release, this will set to factory default, but set it back up using a wired lan cable and not wirelessly.

Echolink port forwarding problem

such a complex topic and so little info!

to reach an open port you need to know a couple things
1) the ip address your trying to reach x.x.x.x
2) the port you will use :xxxxxx
and it can be put into a browser like so

to make it so people can reach you is the fun and dangerous part!
things you will need:
1) your wan ip (google "what is my ip")
2) the specific device you are making available's lan ip (cmd - ipconfig /all works well on windows)
3) what port your supposed to open (i'm sure the documentation or program says somewhere)

log into your router and find the port forwarding and triggering section under advanced in a netgear (application and gaming in some others)
1)name it
2)put the number to open in twice
3)select protocol (ive usually used tcp... udp for file transfer sometimes)
4)fill in the rest of your lan ip
5)tick the box to enable and save settings

now there is a hole letting traffic on a certain port reach the named lan ip... OH, make certain that device has a static ip, if its ip changes you'll find headaches at inconvient hours.

hope i got you pointed the right way

Port forwarding for model number F7D5301

To setup port forwarding on this router your computer needs to have a static ip address. Or you can take alook at our Static IP Address guide to setup a static ip address. When you are finished setting up a static ip address, please come back to this page and enter the ip address you setup in the Static IP Address box below. Open a web browser like Internet Explorer or Firefox. Enter the internal IP address of your router in the address bar of your browser. If you do not know your routers internal IP address please read our How To Find Your Routers IP Address guide.

The address bar has in it. Just replace all of that with the internal IP address of your router. By default the IP address should be set to

We do not currently know the default username and password for your router.
Click the NAT button near the left of the page.
You should now see a new menu. In this new menu, click Port Forwarding.
Enter the name of the program into the Description box. It doesn't really matter what you put into this box, but something that will remind you why these ports are being forwarded would be a good idea.
Enter the port to forward into the Public Port and the LAN Port boxes.
Use the Protocol Type drop down box to select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding.
Enter the ip address to forward these ports to into the LAN IP Address box. If you are forwarding ports so you can run a program on your computer, you should enter your computer's ip address into that box.
Put a checkmark in the Enable checkbox.
When you're finished, click Save Setting near the top of the screen to save your changes.

And that's it! You're done!

My xbox is connected to my internet via connecting my xbox to my laptop. I tried changing the nat settings by doing all the methods, you name it: port forwarding, DMZ, UPNP, and it STILL DOES NOT *******...

I know what you're going through as it is common on Belkin routers. There are actually some good solutions to this found on youtube for simple instruction to help demostrate but I'm gleaned you already have done some of the advanced steps. Here is my question did you ever set your xbox 360 with a static ip address and then add it to the firewall/virtual server settings. You put the static ip address in and the xbox 360 ports.

How do I do port forwarding with one static IP to put my address in my other computers . I need to shadow into with VNC after I install address on my computer is port forwarding marked on the menus are...

Find the IP-address of the computer that you want to accept VNC connections.

Access the router's web-interface.
Find its web-page for "port-forwarding".
Define 'TCP' port '5900' to be forwarded to the IP-address that you found.
Save the settings, and restart your router.

Hopefully, Verizon's FIOS network does not "block" all 'TCP:5900' traffic.

I am using Belkin F5D7632ak4A. My problem is that:

Hi there,

In doing a port forwarding, you actually need to assign a manual address on the computer where you are using the service port for the computer not to change the IP address. If your private address on the network is 192.168.1.XX then you may assign on your computer any of the address there. Also you may need to know the DNS you are using on the router which you can find on the status tab of the router.

To assign an IP address, if your computer is wired then right click on the wireless connection and select properties, if it is a wireless computer right click on the wireless connection and select properties.

After you have selected the said properties> look for Internet Protocol TCP/IP then select properties.


then from there you can put in the set of address you have for ex.
IP address
subnet mask
Default gateway
preferred DNS
alternate DNS

Note: these are just example. after you have done assigning an IP address then you may do the port forwarding again. change the IP address on the port forwarding tab to the IP address you have assigned. Then don't forget to save the settings.

Problem with VPNand Linksys router WRT150N

If that is the case you may forward ports on the router for VPN connection, try to open 47, 500 and 1723 all TCP and UDP protocol.

Here's what you need to do, check the IP address of the computer where you have the VPN software,

here's how:
click start> run> type cmd> hit okay
on the black screen put in ipconfig and check the IP address there,

> when you get the IP address then we can enable port forwarding on the router

> open IE on the working computer on the address bar, type

> nothing for username and password is admin in lower case

> then click on the applications and gaming tab on the router,

> and from there, example of how to field that in is like this,

> for aaplication name - VPN1
> for port it is 47 to 47
> for protocol it is BOTH
> for IP address ex. 192.168.1.XX -
> then check enable, do the same thing for the rest of the port.
> save the settings and try it again after.

> if it is still nothing, you may connect the computer that has the VPN connection directly to the modem and check if you will be able to connect via VPN

i'll wait for your response, thank you and have a nice day!

Opening the NAT connection for Xbox 360 working through 2 routers

  1. How do you connect your Linksys router to Belkin router? Do you connect your Linksys router to the Internet/WAN port of the Belkin?
  2. If so, what is the Internet connection type set in your Belkin router? Is it dynamic?
  3. If the Belkin router is set to dynamic IP and if it is obtaining an IP address from your Linksys router(you may check the status page of your Belkin router and look for IP address), then you may need to forward or set that IP address as the DMZ to your Linksys router. Make sure that XBOX is still configured as the DMZ host in your Belkin
Hope this helps!

Dyndns DNS and Port 800

Odds are; you will likely find mdbs_daemon or something on most of your computers on your LAN also doing traffic on this port. It's probably not a good idea to use this value.

From my experience in networks and routing, you are also better off if you can put the port up in the unprivileged region (1024~65535). The reason is that hackers typically spend the time down lower than this and they are looking for known services. It takes too long to scan ports up in the high regions, and you are more likely to be discovered for your activity. Try using port numbers that are strange; eg. 8888 or 5555 and similar. A lot of routers will let you do a "redirect" such as bringing port 8888 on the outside to port 80 on the inside to your device.
