Question about 2wire 2700HG-B Router (2700HGB)

1 Answer

Port forwarding won't allow individual apps

I have been trying to open the ports (6112-6119) for a game called Warcraft 3. I followed the portforward.com model, for my 2wire 1000hg network, but with no avail. I got to my firewall settings as prescribed, I create a new user defined app, with specified tcp and udp and add it to the list. I then click on the option "allow indivdual apps" and click add, the screen refreshes, but nothing is added, and it is reset to maximum security. I don't know what to do. Also, I know I am supposed to select the computer for the open ports, but I have two computers which both have the same IP adress as their name and can't tell the difference. Please help.

The 2wire HG is an old 2Wire, they've come out with several models since that one. It sounds like the firmware isnt working correctly. You can try resetting it to factory default. If you do that, hold the reset button down for at least 30 seconds. 2wires take a good 2-3 minutes to re-syncronize.

When you have solid green lights, open Internet Explorer and it will say page cant be displayed. Clean out the address bar up top where you normally type www stuff (and make sure its the address bar, not the seach bar so many people use). Type 172.16.0.1 to get into the router. Run the system setup wizzard on the right. When it asks you to put in a password, it means make one up. Then you need to click on run system set up wizzard again. The key code should already be in there and end in F2NV. Click next, set your time zone, click next, put in your userID and password, click next, after the reds dots, you should be online. Now go back in and try to open your ports. If they dont stay open this time, then you need to think about swapping the router out. The newest model is the 2701.

I click on the play online and it says connecting to matchmaking server...it never goes any further than that.


Most likely you are behind a Firewall / or preset Router Settings. If this is the PS3 version of the game, most likely its the router. Double check with the specs for Port forwarding online, and make sure the ports are open to allow you to play.

-GamePorts required open / Notes Call of Duty 3Source & Destination port 3074 allow outbound + inbound on UDP and TCP. -

CoD in most instances uses the same ports for all there games. This is the first thing I found after looking through Google search. Hope it helps.

Solution for War Craft 3 behind Linksys routers.........


As the application requires certain ports to be opened on the router,try to follow the steps below to configure the router. Since you are connecting behind the router, you are going behind a NAT firewall.Therefore, you would need to allow ports for the remote access application to go through the firewall. You would need to know what port number application uses. You can check with the program manufacturer for the information, or see the Help menu.


For routers with old firmware versions (without the Cisco web interface):


1.Open Internet Explorer.
2.After "Internet Explorer" opens, please typehttp://192.168.1.1 into the "Address Bar" and click GO.
3.The "Enter Network Password" window will appear. Skip username and type admin (admin is the default password) as the password,and click OK.
4.You will need to click on the Advanced tab to the very right. Once the "Filters" area appears, please click on the Forwarding tab.
5.Once the "Forwarding" area appears, click the Port Triggering button. Once you've done this, a new window will appear.Enter the ports needed to be opened > Click Apply


For later firmware (that has the Cisco web interface)


1.Open Internet Explorer.
2.After "Internet Explorer" opens, please typehttp://192.168.1.1 into the "Address Bar" and click GO.
3.The "Enter Network Password" window will appear. Skip username and type admin (admin is the default password) as the password,and click OK.
4.Click on "Applications and Gaming" then click on the "Port Triggering" Sub tab. Enter the ports needed to be opened >Click Save Settings.


Example:

Customized Trigger Port Range Incoming Port Range
Application From ~ To From ~To
WARCRAFT 6112-6112 6112-6112
WARCRAFT 6113-6119 6113-6119

Hope this help everyone that has problem with the game.

Belkin 54 g wireless router....cant find on the net. need to port forward to host blizzard.net games HELP!


Make sure your private IP address is statically set.  Your public IP address is obtained from your ISP and is what other users will be connecting to.  You can not manipulate your public IP address so if your ISP is running DHCP, it is very possible that your public address is changing.  Also if you are frequently disconnecting your modem, it is possible your ISP is leasing you a new public IP address each time.  So try to keep things as static as possible.  As far as the battle net stuff.

Diablo, Warcraft II Battle.net Edition, and StarCraft: 
Allow port 6112-6119 TCP and UDP out and in
Diablo II: 
Allow port 6112 TCP out and allow established sessions in 
Allow port 4000 TCP out (realm games) 
Allow port 4000 TCP out and in (hosting open games only) 
Warcraft III: 
Allow port 6112 TCP out and allow established sessions in 
Allow port 6112 TCP in (hosting custom games) 
Allow port 6113-6119 TCP out and in (hosting custom games if you've changed the default port in the Options/Gameplay screen) 
If you are still having problems after you open up the required ports, try opening 116(TCP) and 118(TCP). I don't really know if these ports are required or not. 
I have had people tell me that opening up those two ports have helped them connect to battle.net.


Hope that helps.  For manipulating ports in your router I suggest consulting your user manual, or online FAQ.  Save your router config before applying any changes, and always remember, opening up ports subjects you to different types of security threats so be aware that is a risk you are taking.

World of Warcraft


Sounds like you need to do some port forwarding.

World of Warcraft communicates on port 3724 with the TCP protocol. The patching process requires port 3724, 6112, and 6881-6999. Once again to download the patches for World of Warcraft you should forward the following ports.

3724 TCP6112 TCP6881-6999 TCP

If you can not forward ranges of ports and are only planning on having one computer playing WoW, just forward ports 3724 TCP and 6112 TCP. The 6881-6999 port range is mainly used where multiple computers on a network may be trying to play WoW at the same time.

Ventrilo: From their web site: Click on the "Port number" input box and enter the servers port number. The program will automatically display the default port number of 3784 but you can change this to what ever the server needs it to be.

So forward 3784 or the port number you chose.

http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Motorola/SBG900/SBG900index.htm for a walk through on how to do the forwarding.

Hope that helps!

Forwarding from seimens 5830 how to get access


Hi,
You havent suggested what site you are wanting to forward one of your routers ports too, most people make this request for torrent download and/or gaming experience/improvement. Either way you need to know what port the software you are wanting to open a port for is currently using so you can tell your router which port to allow unchecked access.

I use this very informative support website for port resource info, click this link and choose your router type, in your case select Speedstream-5450 which will be the same setup as the 5830

http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm

That should take you to this page

http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Siemens/Speedstream-5450/Speedstream-5450index.htm

Then select the software you are wanting to open the port for.IE: Utorrent or world of warcraft Etc... That will then open a detailed walkthrough on setting up rules for your routers port activity. You will need to follow the guide for each port you open, if the guide is not listed for the exact software you are using just read through the one supplied for Utorrent and change the port numbers to the ones you are using.
The software you are using should show you what port is in use at the time you are using it, some software may use a different port everytime you open the software or allow you to allocate a port permanently (which is not recommended safe internet practice especially if your ISP supplies your connection via a STATIC IP address, most use a DHCP allocated IP address)
Failing that you can find the port currently in use information using the command prompt- for winXP and Vista type c:/netstat-b for win2000 type c:/netstat-p Look for the software you are using it will be on the left hand side and look something like [Utorrent.exe] follow the line of info too the right and look for the 4-5 digit port number.

Wheeeew, Good Luck :0)
