How to block lan IP


IP filtering is a method used to block computers on an internal network from accessing the Internet. This is often used on critical machines on the network, such as servers. It blocks users from accessing the Internet to protect these machines from malware. You can filter IP addresses on your router using the administrator console provided by the router's manufacturer. Once the block is set up, each user machine listed in the filter settings will no longer be able to access the Internet.

Open your web browser and type in the IP address for your router. For most default settings, the IP for the router is 192.168.1.1. Enter your admin username and password. If you have not set them up, try leaving the username black and the typing "admin" for the password. Click the "Security" tab at the top of the window. This opens a new console screen. Within this screen, click the "Filter" link. A list of text boxes is shown where you enter the IP addresses you want to filter. Enter a range of IP addresses you want to block. You can enter one IP address or several. Click the "Save Settings" button. Hope this helps.

Wireless printer goes offline


Let's set a static IP address for the printer:<br /><br />- Print a Network Config Page from the front of the printer. Note the printer's IP address.<br />- Type that IP address into a browser to reveal the printer's internal settings.<br />- Choose the Networking tab, then Wireless along the left side, then the IPv4 tab.<br />- On this screen you want to set a Manual IP. You need to set an IP address outside the range that the router automatically sets (called the DHCP range). You can change the DHCP range of the router using its internal settings page.<br />- Use 255.255.255.0 for the subnet (unless you know it is different, if so, use that)<br />- Enter your router's IP (on the Network Config Page) for the gateway and first DNS. Leave the second one blank.<br />- Click 'Apply'.<br /><br />Now, shut down the router and printer, start the router, wait, then start the printer.<br /><br />After this you may need to redo 'Add a Printer' using the new IP address.

Port forwarding for model number F7D5301


To setup port forwarding on this router your computer needs to have a static ip address. Or you can take alook at our Static IP Address guide to setup a static ip address. When you are finished setting up a static ip address, please come back to this page and enter the ip address you setup in the Static IP Address box below. Open a web browser like Internet Explorer or Firefox. Enter the internal IP address of your router in the address bar of your browser. If you do not know your routers internal IP address please read our How To Find Your Routers IP Address guide.

The address bar has http://www.fixya.com/AnswerQuestions.aspx#top in it. Just replace all of that with the internal IP address of your router. By default the IP address should be set to 10.1.1.1.

We do not currently know the default username and password for your router.
Click the NAT button near the left of the page.
You should now see a new menu. In this new menu, click Port Forwarding.
Enter the name of the program into the Description box. It doesn't really matter what you put into this box, but something that will remind you why these ports are being forwarded would be a good idea.
Enter the port to forward into the Public Port and the LAN Port boxes.
Use the Protocol Type drop down box to select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding.
Enter the ip address to forward these ports to into the LAN IP Address box. If you are forwarding ports so you can run a program on your computer, you should enter your computer's ip address into that box.
Put a checkmark in the Enable checkbox.
When you're finished, click Save Setting near the top of the screen to save your changes.

And that's it! You're done!

How can i find my wep key code for my router


Follow Step # 1 in this guide here. Look for Security settings somewhere in the router menu and you should be able to find the WEP key under there.
Without information on your model of router, we can't be more specific.
If you are still having problems, follow Step # 10, or even 10.5!

I purchased a wre54g range expander and have tried everything but it doesnt work


Who is the manufacturer of your wireless router?
check the IP address of your router.
connect the computer to the router and check the Ip address of the computer and the default gateway number. Default gateway is the IP address of your router. suppose the default gateway is 192.168.1.1. then open the set up page of the router . check the wireless settings of the router SSID ,channel and the security settings. Do not change the settings on the router.
If you are using WPA2 security settings them that will network on the WRE54G.
Now your range expander and the router IP addresses should be in the same range. Suppose you router IP address is 192.168.x.y and the IP address of the WRE54G is by default 192.168.1.240.
Now the x in the router IP address should be 1.
If it is, then connect the WRE to the router and open the set up page of WRE. change the wireless settigns on the WRE and power cycle the WRE and the router.
It should work

I can play any game online fine, but when it comes to fifa i send my friend an invite he accepts then nothing happens it just comes up this game session is no longer active, or when i do get a game it says...


You need to either give your PS3 a static IP address and then put that IP in DMZ in your router, or you need to open up the ports it tells you in the Fifa 09 manual.

 

To put your PS3 into a DMZ (To be done on the PS3 Console) 

Firstly, you will need to assign your PS3 a static internal Ip address. This means that everytime your PS3 connects or "talks" to your router, the router will assign it a different internal IP address. These IP addresses typically run in series. So for example, if your PS3 is the second device communicating with your router, then it will be assigned an ip address of 192.168.1.3. However, if you choose to use your PS3 without the computer being on, the assigned IP address your PS3 has will be 192.168.1.2. As this is different, and obviously will change, it would be stupid setting a DMZ up on one of the above Ip addresses, unless your PS3 was the only device that would ALWAYS connect using that specific IP. 

To make sure that your PS3 is always assigned the same internal IP address by your router, you will need to go to the "Settings > Network Settings > Internet Connection Settings" option on the PS3 Cross bar menus. 

You will be presented with an option which primarily asks whether you are using a Wired or Wireless connection. Obviously, you will choose the option which refers to you. If choosing the Wireless option you will need to input the security details in use on your router *If you are not currently using wireless security, i strongly reccommend you do so ASAP* 

Both selections should show a page called "Address Settings". Here you will need to select "Custom". Another page will then display entitled "IP Address Setting". The option "Manual" will need to be selected. 

This will display a page where customisable IP Addresses are available to be selected. 

IP Address - This will need to have the Static IP address in it. Personally, i use 192.168.1.100. I use this because it is extremely unlikely my Router will ever automatically assign this IP Address to a device, as i will never have 99 other devices connected to the same system. 

Subnet Mask - Is always set to 255.255.255.0 

Default Router - Is the internal IP Address of your router. 
To get the exact ip of your router you should go to 
Start 
Run 
cmd [Hit Enter] 
Type in ipconfig and hit enter, this should come up with all the ip addresses to do with your computer and the network. The address you will need to enter in this option is listed as "Default Gateway". 

Primary DNS - Same IP Address as "Default Router" 

Secondary DNS - Same IP Address as "Default Router" 

After entering all of these IP Addresses, you will now click "Enter" or hit the "right" button on the D-Pad. This will take you to a screen which says "MTU" at the top. My setup has this as Automatic, solely because i haven't a clue what MTU actually means or does.This won't affect your ability to set up a DMZ. 

The next steps are very simple. You do not want to use a proxy server unless you connect to the internet using one, however i can be of no help there, and you should enable UPnP if your router supports it. 

To put your PS3 into a DMZ (To be done on the PC) 

Now head over to your PC, and load up your internet browser. In the Address Bar, type the IP Address of your router (the one you found using the Command Prompt earlier) 

This will take you to your Router Configuration Page. 

Every router interface differs from an other, and depending on what router firmware update you last installed, router interfaces can differ, even on the same model routers. This means that you will need to search the router config page yourself. You are looking for any mention of "DMZ" or "DMZ Host" 

When you have found this, it will ask you generally to input the IP Address of your DMZ Host, which is just the static IP address you assigned to your PS3 earlier, my example was 192.168.1.100, so we'll stick with that. Then click "apply" or similar. 

You should then turn off everything running on your home network. PS3, PC, Router etc. This is solely to make sure that the changes are applied as soon as possible. 

This should fix all of the problems as listed earlier in this guide, and probably some other issues

Short answer? hmmmm

To successfully use port forwarding you must know the IP address of the computer on the INSIDE of your network BUT
your router is most likely using DHCP. This means your internal IP address isn't necessarily static. The "D" in DHCP is for dynamic.

First you need to ensure the the inside IP address of your machine isn't going to change. This can be accomplished 2 ways. 1) assign a static IP to your machine 2) Force specific DHCP IP address assignments by MAC (Hardware) address of your network port - this is the easiest way. Your router does NOT support this option (according to the manual) :-(

So #1 it is...

1) Your router defaults to allocate ALL inside address to DHCP - This will have to change. Alot of routers only use a subset of your internal range (eg: 192.168.0.100 - 192.168.0.150.) Yours will too!

Determine how many addresses you wish to reserve for DHCP (for a house 50 should be more than enough). Figure out the range (say 192.168.0.100 - 192.168.0.150.)

Also find out the DNS (Domain Name Servers) of your ISP, as you'll be needing them later.

Log into your router and go to Network settings / setup (pages 26 & 27 in the manual) make the changes and restart your router (and computer) you will now be using a DHCP address in the range you just specified! :-)

Now you will need to go to your network settings on your computer and change you r network setting from DHCP to manual. Enter a IP address such as 192.168.0.10, and your gateway (eg: 192.168.0.1) and your DNS server information that you got earlier.

Now restart your computer to make the changes take effect. We could do something from the command line but I'm trying to keep this short ;-)

If everything is working and you can use the web, check email etc. and your network settings show you are using the manual address you assigned. If you don't have internet review your earlier work (especially the DNS servers) you can always change your computer to use DHCP until your get it resolved.

Congrats most of the tough work is done!

Now you will be using the port forwarding option (Page 28 in your manual) to assign which incoming ports to map to your IP address

Rather than regurgitate other peoples work... see:

My ps3 internet doesn't work


Easy Pie! This is a cinch anda guarantee work through. It involves putting your PS3 into a DMZ (demilitarized zone) which simply means opening all of the ports on it.

If you have the following problems, this is likely to fix it.
  • Not being able to join rooms
  • Not being able to speak over your headset
  • Not being able to hear other people over their headset
  • Not being able to join private games
  • Any problems to do with connectivity to the PSN, especially if your computer will connect to the internet, but your PS3 won't.


Part 1-(On PS3)
  • Firstly, you will need to assign your PS3 a static internal IP address. Normally whenever a device connects to your router it will be assigned a different internal IP address. These are normally 192.168.1.2, 192.168.1.3, 192.168.1.4 and so on. Assigning a static one will ensure that your PS3 will get the same one every time it connects.
  • Go to the "Settings > Network Settings > Internet Connection Settings" option on the PS3 XMB. Choose whether you are using wireless or wired.
  • Both selections should show a page called "Address Settings". Here you will need to select "Custom". Another page will then display entitled "IP Address Setting". The option "Manual" will need to be selected.
  • This will display a page where customizable IP Addresses are available to be entered.
  • IP Address - This will need to have the Static IP address in it. Use 192.168.1.80, simply because it is unlikely that 80 other devices will be connected at the same time.
  • Subnet Mask - always set to 255.255.255.0
  • Default Router - Is the internal IP Address of your router.
    1. To get the exact ip of your router you should go to
    2. Start
    3. Run
    4. cmd [Hit Enter]
    5. Type in ipconfig and hit enter, this should come up with all the ip addresses to do with your computer and the network. The address you will need to enter in this option is listed as "Default Gateway".

  • Primary DNS - Same IP Address as "Default Router"
  • Secondary DNS - Same IP Address as "Default Router"
  • Proxy � When you get to the proxy screen, select "Do not use Proxy"
  • MTU � Automatic
  • UPnP � Enabled


Part 2-(On PC)
  • In your Internet Browser, type the address of your default gateway, this will take you to your Router Configuration Page. Look for any mention of DMZ
  • When you have found this, it will ask you for the Static IP of the DMZ host. This is simply the Internal IP that you assigned your PS3. We used 192.168.1.80.
  • Finally, turn off your Router, PC and PS3 for a few minutes to ensure that the new settings are loaded. Then you're ready to go!
