Question about NexxTech 4-Port Ethernet Broadband Router (N4PROUTER)

1 Answer

Does this router have a built in firewall? I received the scan key equipment and installation disk from Shoppers Hotline and was talking with their tech support due to the fact that everytime the program would try to detect the scanner after initializing I kept getting the Error report from Microsoft and then he instructed me to turn off my firewall from security center and it still didnt work, he then asked me to contact here to see if possibly this router has a built in firewall. My xbox 360 works just fine. Any help is greatly appreciated

Yes, this router have inbuilt firewall to enable the settings follow the below steps
You will need to get the IP address from your computer that you want to open ports to.

Step 1 Open your web browser and enter the IP address of your Nexxtech router ( Enter username (admin) and your password (blank by default).

Step 2 Click on the Advanced tab at the top and then click Firewall on the left side.

Step 3 Click on Enabled and type in a name for the new rule.

Step 4 Choose WAN as the Source and enter a range of IP addresses out on the Internet that you would like this rule applied to. If you would like this rule to allow all Internet users to be able to access these ports, then put an Asterisk in the first box and leave the second box empty.

Step 5 Select LAN as the Destination and enter the IP address of the computer on your local network that you want to allow the incoming service to. This will not work with a range of IP addresses.

Step 6 Enter the port or range of ports that are required to be open for the incoming service.

Step 7 Select Always for the Schedule or specify a range of Day and time that you would like this rule to be active.

Step 8 Click Apply and then click Continue.

Because our routers use NAT (Network Address Translation), you can only open a specific port to one computer at a time. For example: If you have 2 web servers on your network, you cannot open port 80 to both computers. You will need to configure 1 of the web servers to use port 81. Now you can open port 80 to the first computer and then open port 81 to the other computer.

I get error 'Unable to find destination PC-Check the PC' on Kyocera Mita


This error means that there is a communication problem between the printer and the computer that is receiving scanned file. The error is usually prompted on network installed printers.

Check to ensure that the Scanner File Utility software is running and the computer is able to receive data.
Try restarting the computer and printer. Disconnect both units from power supply for five minutes before restarting.
Check if you have firewall or security software active on computer that can block communication from scanner. Ensure that the scanner utility is listedas an exception on firewall settings, if the application is not present, then you need to add it to allowed applications list.
Ensure that you have granted Scanner Utility access to system resources if asked.
Reinstall printer software and driver on PC. This can be done either using the disk provided with the printer, or using the download from Mita website.
Test the computer network cable. If cable is worn it can cause communication errors. This problem is usually occurring on LAN (network) printer installation. If using local installation via USB, then test using a different USB cable. If USB cable is damaged or too long (over 10 m.) , then you may get the error stated on local installation.

The most common reason for this problem is firewall settings or network problems. Network problems may be difficult to troubleshoot. Remember also that there is a built in firewall in the router resident software. If the router is set to block inbound communication from printer to computer, or if printer and computer are in two different IP ranges (eg. and, then you may get communication between computer and printer blocked by router firewall.

Here a setup manual (click to download), also ensure that you have performed scanner setup correctly.

Here also Kyocera Mita download driver page:Kyocera's managed print services .

I have a hacker ruining all of my games&it is getting back into my personal computer

Go into the router administration page on the internet find the wireless connection and insert a wep key on the router. Once you do make sure you reconfigure your entire network. Including if you have a anti-virus and firewall software installed make sure it also detects any threats to you and your system. It completely will secure it from hackers. Use AVG or Norton for both anti-virus and firewall. You don't need the hardware version of a firewall just software. Most of them will come with a built-in firewall and others need to be configured. So make sure when your in your wireless page configure your firewall.

My internet connection became slower after i got xfinity internet and belking router.Can a cause of the problem be a conflict between belkins firewall and Mccafee firewall that i have for a long time.If it...

It could be a conflict.. but the main thing is there really is no reason to have a 3rd party firewall installed on windows, it has it's own firewall, then you have the firewall built in to the router, all mcafee's firewall is doing for you is taking up resources and potentially causing conflicts.
I would remove that firewall and see if that helps, if not, reset the router to factory defaults (there should be a reset button on the router) and configure it again, possible that it was not set up correctly or got corrupted somehow.
With the introduction of Windows 98 SE Service Pack 2, there is no reason to have another firewall installed.
Hope this helps

Try updating the firmware on the router.You need to log into the router using

Username =admin
password = admin or the word password.

Once in the routers home page check for updates and download and install.Also be sure any firewalls are not blocking the signal.
While your in the router set up a personal wep key for your wireless security.
There is a possibility your lossing signal to outside intruder.

Scanning on Aficio 2232c from Windows Vista PC

goto and download desktop binder.  Restart your computer.  Then use the setup options to link the copier to desktop binder.
Another way to do it is to skip the twain software altogether and use  a shared folder on your computer.  Your 2232 can link to that folder if smb is installed on your copier. 
The way to find out is to press the user counter/tools button.  Select key op tools.  Go to address book management.  Select new program.  See if folders appears.  If it does press the button and select the browse button to see if it can find any computers on your network.
Your computer should have a shared folder with no restrictions to it.  Windows firewall should be turned off.  You copier must be connected via ethernet cables.  Firewall protection should only be on the router.

Communicating with friends

It could be a NAT problem, your router could be configure with high firewall settings using NAT, so you should try to connect to your router and configure it to allow all incoming connections (could be dangerous if you use your computer without antivirus or antispyware). It all depends of the model of the router and also ISP (some put very strong firewalls settings for their routers so your machine can be safe on the internet). The NAT firewalls allows you to send but not receive, so went someone try to play with you, it says unable to connect with that person.

Connecting to my DIR625

One thing you might want to check is your firewall settings. Not the windows firewall but 3rd party firewall like Norton Internet Security. It will block your connection if it detects a different network. Also check the LED lights on the router, if you plug in an ethernet cable, does the light lite up on the corresondping Lan.

Most in home routers come with a disk to install ( more often than not norton ), If it didnt come with a disk you should go into the setting control of the router by typing in the ip adress in your IE bar, and clicking on the tab of security/firewall and putting them to the correct specifications. If that still fails for you, I would suggest going to the web and downloading a new driver for the router. Hope it helps!
