For gaming all you need to do is go to your ip# will come up. Give it to your fellow gamers and they can join your game. As far as ports go, you need to find out what ports are used for your specific game. These can be found easily with a search, theres bound to be a forum or two that have this information available. Once you find out what they are, enter them into your port forwarding page. Making sure you apply your settings to

How to enable wireless connection on dell latitude e4300

I have had this issue on DSL troubles.The most common issue is the settings for the IP address.A computer in a business location will often be set for a static IP.You can change it,but don't forget to write down the static IP settings(as soon as you click on the "bullet" for "obtain IP address automatically" ,the static info is GONE,and there's no way to retrieve it.Go to control panel/network connections,right click on the NIC or Wi-Fi connection being used,click properties,highlight Internet Protocol TCP/IP,click properties.This will show auto or static IP.

One of my computers wont connect to internet keeps saying limited acsess other computers are working fine

It means there is issue of tcp ip address. Limited connectivity means network adapter tcp ip not correct or not getting ip from DHCP server. For that set static ip in network adapter tcp ip property ac your local network range. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Dana on the PC that can connect to internet open the start menu and see if there is netwirk button to klick on. If so click it and see if it shows your Belkin Router icon if it does right click the icon and you should see a option to go to the router web page witch should look something like this.

See first pic below.
Find the security section on left side and go there. Should look something like second pic below. You will see the security key no in the password slot.
You can also get to the routers web page by typing its ip adress in the internet browser if you know your PC's ip adress (example the routers ip will be the same but use a 1 where the 9 is. Hope I helped you good luck.4a682e3.jpgcae57f2.jpg

Keep losing connectivity

This is usually caused by the setup of the TCP/IP properties, most people do not have static IP addressing, so open the Wireless Connetion Properties window, find the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and select it then select the properties button to bring up another window showing the properties for this, select the "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically", OK out of these dialogs and that should take care of it.

My friends has a netgear wgr 614 v9, and it wont connect,, juts keeps saying acquiring network address, i tried to reset it ( lil hole at the rear ) but no joy,, how can i solve this,, would someone...

your computer is not getting IP address from the router. You said that you reset the router. Press the Reset button on the router and hold it down for 30 seconds. release it. Unplug the power to the router and plug it back in. restart your computer and check if that connects. If that doesn't work then assign a static IP address in the range of your router. you will need to find out the default IP address of the router. you will find the default IP address of the router in the router manual or if you go to the web site of the manufacturer, you will get the IP address of that router. Now once you assign a static IP address to the computer it will show you connected , now try to set up your router.

I would like to configure port fowarding on the Cisco 857 router using the http interface rather than via any coding. Is it possible and what do I need to do? In my scenario, the router must be configured...

It is possible to configure your router via a web browser. Although it’s disabled by default, your router has its own mini HTTP server built in. This provides another way to gain access to the router for the purpose of issuing commands. To enable the HTTP server, you have to use the command "ip http server" from the global configuration mode.

cisco(config)#ip http server

Then open a web browser and point it to one of your router’s IP addresses. The interface is not really nice, but you can issue commands using hyperlinks.
For security reasons I still suggest that you keep the HTTP server turned off, since it offers just another point of access for potential hacking.

What is so bad about the command line? Configuring port forwarding is actually pretty easy, once you know the commands.

Type show ip interface to find the name of the interface you want to set port forwarding for.

The show ip nat translations command shows you the current port forwards on Router.

Type configure to enter the configuration mode
The command for port forwarding is: ip nat inside source static (TCPorUDP) (YourComputersIP) (PortToForward) interface (name)(PortToForward)

in you case:
ip nat inside source static tcp 5900 interface (name) 5900
ip nat inside source static tcp 5901 interface (name) 5901
replace (name) with the interface name you got from the first command.

Then press CTRL-Z to end the Configure Session
Type copy run start once you tested your settings and press ENTER for the question Destination filename [startup-config]?

I have heard of some commercial tools that let you configure your router via web interface, but they are very expensive (around 1400$).
You can try it out for 14 days. Go here.
If you want to play with a free one, go to Cisco (link) and check it out. (You have to be a member though.)

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Linksis router wont work help me out

First of all contact your isp and get your connection settings. If you are able to setup the router using the cd provided then good. If you are still having problems then go ahead and contact linksys (remember linksys charges for the support). I suggest get a technician to assist you in setting up.

My NAT type is on moderate so I cant play Xbox Live

I tried everything and eventually figured this out.  Do this!

Enable DHCP set the start ip to, and remove any static IP address on your xbox 360 (have it automatically detect connections)
Set the MTU to 1364.
enable UPnP.
if you are using wrt-dd (if you aren't, you should be)  setup QoS so xboxlive has premium priority.

And you have hit the ground running.  Even microshats own website wont' help you fix this stupid problem.

I promiss this will work ;)
