Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Router

Can't play Starcraft...

Ok so my net is able to play most internet games, but for some reason I can't play Starcraft online. When I start it up, it says something like your internet doesn't send UDP packets or something. My friend said to open up the port 6112 for UDP and TCP. So I did, but it still displayed the same message. I have opened all access to that one port on my firewall, router, and DSL modem... Now what?

3. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

4. Enter the IP address of the computer in the Server IP Address box.
5. Click the Add or Apply button.
6. Repeat all steps to open more ports.

Note: If the name of the Internet service does not appear in the drop down list, you may manually open the ports for that Internet service. Please follow the steps below:

D. Opening Ports for Games, Applications or Custom Ports:

1. Click on Add Custom Service button.
2. Type the service name in the Service Name box and the lower range numbers in the Starting Port box.
3. If the application uses only a single port; type in the same port number in the Ending Port box.
4. If the application uses a range of ports; type in the higher range numbers in the Ending Port box.
5. Type the IP address of the computer in the Server IP Address box. Click Apply button.
6. It will then refresh to the Port Forwarding page, and will show the list of all ports opened in tabulation.
7. Repeat all steps to add more ports for more services.

Ive been trying to play the everafterhigh online game but for some reason my internet browser is not compatible with is there something you can do to help me with this its really frustrating ?


I don't know the game but you could try and check if you are running the latest version of your current browser.
You could also try using a different browser. Internet Explorer is installed as your standard browser if you are using Windows. Some other (free) browsers are Firefox and Google Chrome.
If that doesn't help it could be something else, like your flash plugin not being updated.

MY Macbook pro disc drive wont read the Starcraft game discs. Every other cd or dvd i put in the drive at least reads, but when I put in starcraft it just spins for a second, pauses, and spins again...


I was pretty disappointed when I couldn't play a 12 year old game on my new macbook either. The best thing to do is go to battle.net, load up the CD key and then load the software onto your mac. The downside is that you will need internet access before playing even if you play single player. That's the way I got around it.

No cd key inside of the battlechest box


Well just take it back to the place you bought it and get a replacement, or if you bought it from someone on the internet, well thats a bummer!

Are you gonna play online or just Lan/single player?

If you gonna play LAN you can always use a key generator!

I am getting huge downloads when playing on PS3. Had problems downloading yesterday, but ok now. Just when playing has used 20GB in one day!! Is there any known reason for that?


20GB for just playing online is way too much. Are you using wireless or wired internet? Maybe someone is leeching your internet connection and downloading stuff without your knowledge. Normal online play woulnd't consume such huge amounts of bandwidth. I recommend you change your wireless password.
