Question about ASUS WL-700gE Router

Unable to connect from Internet to WL0799GE

I have setup and installed this and can get access to the nas drive from the local network, however from the internet i can't access anything, i have even disabled the firewall.

I have setup a account and i know this works through my BT Broadband account as i can remotely control my PC through the Internet, i have disabled the firewall on the broadband router just to make sure.

I have the NAS drive connected through a LAN connection to the ADSL broadband router.

I would love to keep this as it offers so much, but so far is not delivering.

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Unable to connect from Internet to WL0799GE

Make sure you have a switch that has DHCP. the DSL modems are terrible at this, make sure you have a D-Link  router or similar, go to a computer store and ask an associate
for a Wireless Router

Find the IP address of the drive and make sure you can ping it. to get the IP of the drive, go into your routers settings (usually in your web browser. Log in using guide found in manual. then go to DHCP section and look at the leases shown on the page, the nas drive will have a familiar name, it will be one of the two if you and your pc is connected to the router and nothing else at the moment. Once you have the IP you can reference that like your would from the internet. Not sure if you use VPN but you also need to forward the ports under Port forwarding/triggeing section. Refer to Nas drive manual to find what ports, or google search the drive.

Type "CMD" into the field no quotes
from there type for example:

Local access only.

You need to configure the router for internet access. If you are on Cable ISP, you need to do MAC Cloning. If you are on DSL ISP, you need to configure the router for PPPoE. Normally, the router's setup CD can guide on how to do it.

I am guessing you have XP or vista. here are the instructions for both.
XP 1. Click ‘Start’ button (it should be located at lower-left corner of your computer), then click control panel. Double-click Network and Dial-up Connections icon, double click Local Area Connection, and Local Area Connection Properties window will appear. Select ‘Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)’, then click ‘Properties’ 2. Select ‘Use the following IP address’, then input the following settings in respective field: IP address: Subnet Mask: Click ‘OK’ when finish.
Vista 1. Click the ‘Start’ button (it should be located at lower-left corner of your computer), then click control panel. Click View Network Status and Tasks, then click Manage Network Connections. Right-click Local Area Network, then select ‘Properties’. The Local Area Connection Properties window will appear, select ‘Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP / IPv4)’, and then click ‘Properties’ 2. Select ‘Use the following IP address’, then input the following settings in respective field: IP address: Subnet Mask: Click ‘OK’ when finish.
Next step for both All functions and settings of this access point must be configured via the web management interface.

The default user name is ‘admin’, and the default password is ‘admin’. Press the ‘OK’ button to see the web management interface of this access point: NOTE: If you can’t see the web management interface, and you’re being prompted to input user name and password again, it means you didn’t input username and password correctly.

WRT54G, unable to install router

  • Since you have Internet connectivity through the router using a direct connection to the router, then you just need to access the router's setup page and re-configure wireless.
  • But first, check if the wireless light is on in the router.
  • Then, using a computer that is wired to the router, launch IE and type on the address field.
  • It will then ask for the password. By default it is admin. Just click ok and it will lead you to the setup page of the router.
  • Then, on the menu click Wireless. Look for wireless network name or SSID. That is the name of your wireless network. By default it is set to "linksys". You may change it to a uniqune name and then save the settings.
  • Then, if you want to enable security in your Wireless network, click on Wireless Security.
  • Set security mode to WPA Personal and create your network key. It should be atleast 8 characters.
Hope this helps!

Is this a situation where the connection works when plugged into modem that came with the DSL; then does not work when you try to use the router?

If not it is probably another problem.

If so check out the following

Routers require configuration (setup) to connect to some devices to access the internet1.gif.

I am will need to know your internet service provider (ISP) -- (as this is DSL possibly the name of the local phone company?).

If you are not familiar with configuring your wireless router --
Will you provide me with the Manufacturer and Model of the
Router? They all configure differently when it comes to
detailed instructions.

I may need manufacturer and model information on your modem device depending on what I find at the ISP's site. (if the link is right I probably do not need this).

Yes we will want to test with a wired connection first then on to any wireless connections you are considering.

With wireless services attached to your network1.gif you should also consider securing that wireless service1.gif so others cannot easily access your network and computers, like your neighbors or people on the street with a laptop.

If you want to consider that I can discuss several options with you. However to determine which options your equipment supports I will need to know the manufacturer and model number of your wireless adapter or the computer1.gif with a built-in wireless adapter you intend to connect to your wireless network1.gif.
