    What application are you trying to sync with port forwarding? Are you trying to play xbox live or ps3 online?

You should set static IP address on the device first before doing the port forwarding. And the port needs to be specific for certain applications. Go to www.portforward.com for helpful tips about the exact ports to be opened.

Where do i find the port forwarding?


To access the Port Forwarding option of your router, you will need to access the router setup page and from there you will find Application and Gaming tab and there you will see the sub tab port forwarding that is where you can open the port that you need to work behind the router.

My x-box tells me to open port to connect, i cant get it to work. bungie net tells me to open port 802.11 n not b or g . i cant make it work,x-box tells me my nat is not open. please help. thanks ...


The Linksys router, like any other router, will block "unsolicited" traffic from the Internet coming "into" the router (for "forwarding" to your computer that is "behind" the router).

So, you need to access the web-server "inside" the router, from a computer that is "behind" the router, and you need to modify the "blocking" of the router's "firewall", to "allow" (instead of "block") traffic from the Internet to a specific port-number.

You'll also need to "forward" that port-number to a specific computer "behind" the router.
Compare to a secretary that receives telephone-calls for several managers in the office.
When somebody calls the office, the secretary may look at the caller-ID, and may choose
to *NOT* pickup the telephone, i.e., to "block" the incoming call. Thus, none of the telephones
on the desks of the managers will ring -- they will not receive any notification that the secretary
has "blocked" the call. Or, the secretary may recognize the caller-ID as being that of the spouse of one of the managers, and may just "forward" that incoming call to the correct manager.
The secretary needs to know which of the telephones is associated with the spouse of the caller, so that the "correct" person responds to the incoming call.
The secretary is doing the 'NAT' ("Network Address Translation") to correctly do the "forwarding".

Similarly, the router needs to be configured to do the 'NAT' correctly.

HOW DO I GET TO MY SETTING i WANT TO CHANGE THE UPNP... FORWARD THE PORT... i TRIED TYPING THE 198....IN THE ADDRESS BLOCK....AND ALSO THE ROUTER STILL DID NOT COME UP


There should be an automated port forwarding setup where you dont need to type in any IPs, but only the port(s) you want forwarded. also, the local IP isnt 198... but 192.168.1.x
To do this setup you'll need to go to the router's default page which should be sometihng like 191.168.1.x, you'll find this IP either on the bottom of the router, or in the router's documentation. Just type in this IP in your browser's Address bar and find the Port Forwarding page. Consult the router's documentation if you cant find it.

I don't know how to remove "ports"


You need to specify exactly what you intending on doing. There is a difference in Port Triggering and Port Forwarding. If you are wanting to open a port on a machine you want Port Forwarding. There should be a place to specify a custom range of ports for any given computer on the network. Note that you cannot overlap ports (Cant port forward a port twice).
