Opening all ports can be very unsafe and is not reccommended unless you have a separate router as well. The only way to open all ports is to disable the internal firewall, but once again that is only recommended if you have a separate router that provides firewall protection.

There are three major steps to setting up a wireless router.

First set up WAN side access to the internet. For this you need information about your internet service provider. Please respond with your internet service provider's name or better yet a link to their help/support website.

I assume you already have access to configure the router at 192.168.1.1 if not please do the following. Open Internet explorer and enter 192.168.1.1 where you would enter fixya.com and press enter -- do web pages appear in your screen from the wired computer. If so we have manual access to configure the router. If not let me know.

Please reply with a response to this message.

Second we will test wireless connections to the router

Third we will secure the tested wireless connections to the router.

This process will require interaction and several iterations of instructions to complete. Please add a comment to this request with the necessary information if you with to proceed in this fashion.

How do I open a port on the RCA modem dhg534 to allow me to do remote deskstop within my network?


> open a port on the RCA digital cable-modem

This device has no "ports" -- all the traffic goes right through out, unfiltered & unblocked.

Connect your computer directly to the Ethernet port on the cable-modem
Configure the Windows Firewall to "open" any port(s).

I need to lock my router from others using my wifi


    • 1 Disconnect the power cord from your high-speed modem. Locate the Ethernet port on the back of your modem. If an Ethernet cable is already plugged in, trace the cable to the second device and unplug the cable from it; otherwise, plug one end of an Ethernet cable to the open Ethernet port on your modem.
    • 2 Plug the unused end of the Ethernet cable to the port on the back of the router labeled "modem." Plug a second Ethernet cable into one of the open ports located above the "modem" port; connect this cable to the Ethernet port on your computer.
    • 3 Reconnect the power cord to your modem; wait for the lights on the front panel to turn green before proceeding. Plug one end of the router's power cord into the corresponding port on the back of the device; plug the remaining end into any available electrical outlet.
    • 4 Turn on your computer and log into your operating system as normal. Insert the installation CD into the computer; the installation application should load automatically (if it doesn't, you can find the application by manually browsing the CD's contents).
    • 5 Follow the onscreen instructions; after you have made the initial configurations, click on the option labeled "Security Assistant" on the left side of the installer window. Select the desired security type for your wireless network and click on the button labeled "Next."
    • 6 Choose a network key and enter it into the appropriate field; press "Next" and follow the onscreen instructions.
    • 7 Open your computer's wireless network settings and enter the wireless network name, security type and network key into the appropriate fields. Save your changes. Set-up is now complete.
Tips & Warnings
  • You can access additional settings via the modem's manual configuration interface. Open your web browser and navigate to 192.168.2.1; when prompted for a password, leave the field blank, and click on the button labeled "Submit."For optimal signal strength, choose a location for your router that will be near your computer, with as few walls and other obstacles as possible.

Internet connection error 734 extra initialization command does not work.it leads to another error 692.


692 - Hardware failure in port or attached device.
This behavior can occur if any of the following conditions exists:
  • The modem is turned off or malfunctioning.
  • If you have an external modem, the serial cable is incorrectly wired.
  • If you have an external modem, the serial cable is not securely connected or has open connections.
  • The serial port or multiport adapter on the RAS server or client is malfunctioning.
  • The handshaking options for the modem are incorrectly configured.
  • The modem is unsupported, or the chosen emulation may be incorrect.
  • The modem .inf files become corrupted or the modem driver becomes corrupte
To solve this problem, use the appropriate method:
  • Reset your modem. Consult the documentation for information about how to reset the modem.
  • If you have an external modem, make sure that you are using the correct serial cable. For more information about requirements for proper cabling, refer to the "Cabling Requirements" section in Dial-Up Networking Help.
  • If you have an external modem, make sure that the serial cable is connected securely.
  • If you are using a pin adapter to connect your external modem to your serial port, make sure that the pin adapter is wired properly for modem communication. For example, a 9- to 25-pin adapter for a mouse does not work properly with an RAS serial setup.
  • Test the serial port or multiport adapter, and replace the adapter if necessary.
  • Make sure that the handshaking options for the modem are configured properly. Consult the documentation for information about the different handshaking options that are available for your modem.
  • Contact the modem manufacturer to see if any setup and initialization information is available for your modem. Also, check the latest Windows hardware compatibility list (HCL) to make sure that your modem is supported.
  • Use Device Manager to remove the modem. You can do this in safe mode or in normal mode. Restart the computer in normal mode. Windows will redetect the modem and reinstall the correct drivers.

Bigpond have sent me my 4 port Wi-Fi modem thompson TG782T Home Network Gateway, now I am sitting here trying to figure out just where everything goes!!! I received a cd rom however I can't get it to work,...


Telephone wall-plate <---- 4-strand telephone-cord ---> telephone-port in modem

AC power from wall-plate to modem.

LAN port #1 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #1.
LAN port #2 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #2.
LAN port #3 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #3.
LAN port #4 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #4.

Configure the router's wireless adapter:
* set a SSID
* set an encryption-level, e.g., 'WPA'
* set a network password

Use the SSID/password to configure your wireless devices (iPod Touch, iPad, XBOX 360, etc.)

Modem light keeps blinking Have tried resetting. Restoring to default settings. If I hook the computer directly to the time warner modem I can acces the internet fine. Thanks


If the modem light keeps blinking, it means that the router hasn't been configured yet. Also, rarely, it can be an issue with WAN port/modem port on the router or the ethernet cable connecting the modem to router or finally, modem may not be working as its not applicable in this case(as you said).
How to configure the router for Time Warner?
1.Connect comp.--(gray port) router (yellow port)--modem
2.On the computer, open the router page by typing 192.168.2.1 in the address bar of browser
3.Under Internet Settings, change the connection type as Dynamic.
4.On the far left column, click on "MAC address" under Internet WAN.
5.Click on clone and apply changes and finally check Internet status
6.If internet status > Not connected, we need to do a network power cycle
7.For this, unplug the power from router, then from modem, then unplug the coaxial cable from cable modem.
8. Wait for 10 sec, then connect the coaxial cable, then connect power to modem, wait for lights on modem to get steady, then finally, plug in the power to router.
Now, you may see proper lights lit on the router.
All my best wishes for a fast internet service through the router.

For any advanced help, revert asap!
Thanks and regards,

Reseting "Bridge mode" in RCA DCM 305R cabel modem


you can't set teh modem to bridge mode, however, you can set the router to bridge.
The linksys should have bridge mode configuration in the uer guide.

connected the 2 router together
configure the IP address of the liksys to be inthe same subnet as the moem, but out of the range of the DHCP of the modem. ie. DHCP address 192.168.0.2 through 192.169.0.100, the linksys should have the IP address as 192.168.0.200
disable the DHCP on the linksys
setup the wirless just the way you would if ti was the modem.
connect from the modem LAN port to the LAN port on thelinksys. leave the WAN port open.

Ethernet cable port does not worked only the usb port worked


Have you tried changing the lan settings, or better still use the disc that came with modem and it will auto install modem and configure settings.
