Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)

Need help getting onto Battle.net World of Warcraft

I have been working on this problem for about 2 weeks now. I have a Dell Inspirion 1501, with a Belkin/G router. I have installed WoW, and I have tried forwarding the ports on the desktop that is connected to the router within the router configuration. I have been to WoW's support page over and over again to make sure that I am forwarding the right ports TCP and UDP. Still, I have no luck my laptop will not connect to the server. I get the message "unable to connect to socket." I have even went as far as opening the same ports on my laptop, no luck. I have a suspicion that Windows Vista my be part of problem. I hope you can give me some help here, I have gotten to the point were I might just go buy a new desktop and an linksys router.

You need to disable UAC in Vista. User Account Control
This is the bit of Vista that gives you all the annoying pop ups asking if you want to do this etc.

You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program.

Hello, My roommate and I play World of Warcraft...


I would reset the router to default settings and use the good version of the firmware. OR delete your existing internet setup and then re-add it (do this if you didnt factory default your router before upgrading firmware)

I have a 1612-a2-200 zhone and need to do some port fowarding to play warcraft III on windows vista but have no idea how to do so... Can anyone help me?


Get Network Magic (free for evaluation unlimited features for a week - then standard features for no $) This software will aid you in getting inside your router and changing the settings to your specifications.

Network Magic is a Cisco program ... I use the paid professional version and I love it.

I hope this is helpful

Belkin 54 g wireless router....cant find on the net. need to port forward to host blizzard.net games HELP!


Make sure your private IP address is statically set.  Your public IP address is obtained from your ISP and is what other users will be connecting to.  You can not manipulate your public IP address so if your ISP is running DHCP, it is very possible that your public address is changing.  Also if you are frequently disconnecting your modem, it is possible your ISP is leasing you a new public IP address each time.  So try to keep things as static as possible.  As far as the battle net stuff.

Diablo, Warcraft II Battle.net Edition, and StarCraft: 
Allow port 6112-6119 TCP and UDP out and in
Diablo II: 
Allow port 6112 TCP out and allow established sessions in 
Allow port 4000 TCP out (realm games) 
Allow port 4000 TCP out and in (hosting open games only) 
Warcraft III: 
Allow port 6112 TCP out and allow established sessions in 
Allow port 6112 TCP in (hosting custom games) 
Allow port 6113-6119 TCP out and in (hosting custom games if you've changed the default port in the Options/Gameplay screen) 
If you are still having problems after you open up the required ports, try opening 116(TCP) and 118(TCP). I don't really know if these ports are required or not. 
I have had people tell me that opening up those two ports have helped them connect to battle.net.


Hope that helps.  For manipulating ports in your router I suggest consulting your user manual, or online FAQ.  Save your router config before applying any changes, and always remember, opening up ports subjects you to different types of security threats so be aware that is a risk you are taking.

Port forward problem


you shouldnt need to put in a static ip. just put all the setting back to normal. Definately forward the ports. but allow the program through the routers and the computers firewall.

forward port 6112 on your router, if you have no idea regarding port forwarding, kindly visit portforward.com and make sure that your warcraft3 installer is licensed. Hope this help you.

Can both devices be connected to the router and surf the web seamlessly? Do you have DHCP (router automatically assigns IP addresses) enabled or do you manually set your computers' IP addresses?
