Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

Nat Error and Firmware Upgrade

Ok, so I'm trying to play a game with my brother through the same router, but everytime he joins a room I'm in or vice-versa, a message pops up saying NAT connection established, then showing my brother's username, and shortly after his ping would be 999. He can play with others in that same room, but we can't see eachother at all.

I'm confused on the port-forwarding, and a friend mentioned that I should setup a static ip for both my brother's computer as well as my own. I don't know how to get started with that, either, as I'm afraid I'll lose connection if I manually try changing the IP addresses. He told me that there should be five localized ip addresses that I can choose from, but he didn't tell me how to locate them. I know I'm supposed to use the second and third for the static ip adresses, just don't know where to find the five, and what else I have to change.

Also, I want to upgrade my Linksys router, and it's stated that there should be a version number on the router, but I didn't see any. The CD that came with it for installation says Version 1, but I'm just guessing that's the CD and not the router itself. Thanks in advance for help.

    Oh I'm sorry, I made a mistake, this is the WRT54GS router, not the WRT54G. Slight error, but may make a difference.

    Oh sorry, I don't know if this makes a huge difference, but my router is Wireless-G WRT54GS, not WRT54G.

    But there is no Version # anywhere on the router. Believe me, I was looking very carefully. Three times I checked it and no version number.

To find the exact version no, look at the bottom of your router at the top lefthand corner you would find a linksys logo and right below the logo you would find the model no wrt54gs and to the right of the model no you would find the ver no, it will be very small and tiny..

You are trying to open the NAT on the router for X-box.
For this you will need to reduce the MTU settings on the router to 1365.
You will also need to trigger some ports on the router.
For this you will need to open the router set up page.

If your using a router, you have to ENABLE the UPnp within your router settings. Once enabled your NAT should be OPEN.
If you do not know how to get into your router, you will need to ask someone you trust to do this.

You have WRT160N router. this router has issues with the firmware.

Try to upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router.
Download the latest firmware of the router. Go to the manufacturer's web site and download the firmware of the router.
Open the set up page of the router and upgrade the firmware of the router. Once you upgrade the firmware of the router, reset the router.
On the router you will find a small reset button, hold it down for 30 seconds. release it. wait for 1 minute. Now unplug the power to the router and plug it back in.
Now you will need to reconfigure the router according to the Internet service provider.

If the problem has something to do with NAT firewall in your router, then you may need to open certain application ports for your XBOX in the router. You may check this link from Microsoft http://support.microsoft.com/kb/908874 that talks about NAT firewall and XBOX live.

Hope this helps!

Do an internet connection test. Your NAT type should be either 1 or 2. If not then there are some restricted ports on your router.

I find that putting your PS3 in your router's DMZ (demilitarized zone), solves all connection problems.
