Re: router cannot connect to servers

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.

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
Turn off DHCP on the dynex and setup the IP to subnet mask gateway
use a cross over cable and plug each ends to the LAN port on port routers.
you should now be able to ping (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.

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.

Router cant handle two pc's connecting to same server

Try to do port forwarding. Search for the port number that the game uses and open it on the router's Setup Page using Port Forwarding.

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:

Ftp server

What is the name of the software? Is that an FTP software?
Anyway if you are using DX-E401 Router you can enable DMZ (demilitarized zone) to your PC.

1.access your router configuration page (default ip:
2.go to advanced tab DMZ enable then type the ip address of your server pc
5.apply settings

after that have someone try to access the files in your pc.
if the software you installed is ftp software then have them access it by this


the "internet ip" is the ip address found in the STATUS TAB of your router under the WAN catergory.

If this software you mentioned is using any particular application ports, you will have to open those ports for your server PC.
In that case you will to configure VIRTUAL SERVER. It's the actual term used by dynex. for you to have a general idea how to configure your pc behind your router please go to this link

Virtual server configuration is in pages 22-23. It has detailed explanation of the terms used.

Hope this helps!

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” or “transferring data from” it says “transferring data from” 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!!!
