The ports that need to be open to connect to the game server are fowarded to your machine and can't be used by another connection. You'll have to release the ports with the router configuration utility in order for another machine to use them. Better still see if you can find out what range of ports the game can use and forward a different set to his machine. Then you can both connect at the same time.

    The support site for your game should have all the info you need for connecting to its servers. If it doesn't or you can't find it then let me know what the game is and I'll see what I can dig up.



    There are multiple ways to get ports forwarded to your machine without having to have much intervention from you. If your game and router support UPnP, then that's what did it and would have been invisible to you. Another method would be if port triggering is enabled on your router. If so then ports remain closed until specifically requested to be opened by your game client at which time the router then forwards them to your machine.



    Another possibility is that your friend has a firewall installed on his computer and that is what's blocking the game traffic.



    Try resetting the router and then let your friend try to connect to the game server first. If he can and then when you try you can't then it is definitely a port forwarding issue. If he still can't connect and you can, then it's time to look for something on his machine that's blocking traffic.

    I'm going to assume you're using mame32 0.64 with Kaillera support. Anti3D.com maintains a server at 82.165.178.145 UDP port 27888 which would be under Firewall virtual servers.



    From the Kaillera FAQ @ http://www.anti3d.com/faq.php:



    "Whenever I try to get into Kaillera it crashes or does not show any servers.



    First, the problem is probably not you, the Kaillera Master is probably down. It happens frequently.

    To fix this, download Anti3D.com's kailleraclient.dll (http://www.anti3d.com/downloads.php) and unzip it into your Emulator's directory. Anti3D.com maintains a more stable Kaillera master server as a service to the general public."

    If forwarding the port directly to his machine didn't work then it's time to look for something on his machine that's blocking traffic like windows firewall or the firewall of a security package.

Can a dynex DX-ESW5 act as a print server?


No. You need a router to set / obtain an IP or connect it directly to the computer RS232 serial port. No network required, but is old school and may be difficult. Specially with MAC. You are better off getting a new router.

How to connect a dynex (dx-e402)router to linksys (befsr41) router


Configure the dynex on another computer that is not connected to the linksys router.
Assuming that your linksys is currently setup as 192.168.1.1
Turn off DHCP on the dynex and setup the IP to 192.168.1.2 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1
use a cross over cable and plug each ends to the LAN port on port routers.
you should now be able to ping 192.168.1.2 (dynex router) from your other computers on the linksys router network.
any computer that is connected to the dynex should be able to get a dhcp address from the linksys router.

My computer is not connecting to my Dynex wireless router. I've called my locate cable subscriber and they told me that it's a router problem. I've disconnected the router several times and it shows that...


First off, verify that you can connect to your cable modem directly. After that, hook up your Dynex wireless router and reboot your cable modem. After this, directly connect your computer to the Dynex router (using a cable). If you cannot get an Internet connection, then there is some issue with your Dynex router configuration. It's possible that there might be an IP address conflict with the cable modem. It would be best to contact support for configuring the Dynex.

If you can connect to the Internet with your computer connected directly to the Dynex router, then there must be some router configuration problem affecting your ability to connect wirelessly. You'll have to check the configuration--might be a good idea to completely reset the router and start over. If that doesn't help, you should contact Dynex customer support, as each router has its own configuration specifics. Good luck.

Cant access internet but can connect to wireless TP-link router


Your friend is able to go online using the same wireless network. that means the wireless network is working properly and there might be a problem with your computer .
You said that you can connect to the wireless network but you can not go online.
Check the IP address and the default gateway of the computer.
Try to ping the router and DNS server and check what happens.
Make sure that there is no static IP address on the computer.

Can  Dynex 4 Port Router DX-E402 be used to connect internet on a notebook without using cable to notebook?? i.e. Can it be used like a wireless g router??


Unfortunately, the DX-E402 is not a wireless router, so it can not transmit its signal without a physical cable connecting the router to your computer. If you want a wireless router that can also connect to your ISP, check out the Dynex Enhanced Wireless G Router:

D-Link cant send email on outlook


You need to check your mail account settings and make sure the SMTP server is set to the fully qualified domain name of your ISP's SMTP server. Your ISP should be able to tell you what this is. You may be able to figure it out by looking at which server is set in the POP3 settings. It will likely be similar if not the same.

Don't buy dynex routers of any kind!!!


Dynex intentionally has it set up to browse the web through their 3rd party systems (rather than directly through your own IP) when you use their routers. So once you enter all of your IP account information with them, you start browsing the web through their own 3rd party server systems so that they can run background web content in order to boost page views for their affiliates! This slows down your web activity, especially if you using multiple computers with one of their routers! Why send users through dynex 3rd party servers to browse the web? Because the more page views that are coming from multiple IP address, the more SPONSORS they can get to support their websites!


Dynex routers are a SCAM in order to get people to browse the web through their own 3rd party servers!!! Why is it that when I type in a web address (after hooking up their router, and attempting to set it up) that instead of saying “waiting for google.com” or “transferring data from google.com” it says “transferring data from http://192.168.1.1/” which is the dynex website! Why would it allow me to only lookup their website (to configure settings) but then block all other web content until setting have been configured??? Think about this, their website isn't already on your computer, it has to be accessed through the internet in order to load onto one's computer. That means the internet is already working through their router, they are just restricting access to other sites until you configure your settings to go through their 3rd party servers for all of your web browsing!


I have used many routers before, and NEVER have I been asked to configure settings on some website before being able to use the product! Most REAL routers don't require any setup or configuration of any type. As long as you properly install everything, and your computers are internet / ethernet ready then you should be good to go. Usually if a router requires some sort of setup online where you are blocked access to all other internet sites until you configure through the manufacturers' site then it's most likely a scam product! A product that serves as a front for getting massive page views (for their sites and affiliates) in order to get lots of sponsorship for having high web traffic!


If you are in the market for real ethernet routers then you should buy d-link, or linksys products instead of dynex! In my opinion, dynex is total JUNK! BUYER BEWARE!!! Don't waste your money on this!!!
