Nat problem


first off make sure that you manually allow the port exception on windows. second make sure the exception is added to your router, for example if your computer ip adress is 192.168.1.101 (run ipconfig in command prompt to find out) make sure the port is forwarded (use a number above 40000 and make sure it is not blacklisted). next if your router has uNap settings/NAT translation make sure you add vuze to its programs to monitor list.

My internet cuts out all the time when I have d-link wired router,even after a reboot to the unit, works for a short time then disconnects


Does it depend on the socket you use or the router configuration at all? Your NIC or the D-Link can have bad ports; you might have wacky drivers or firewall software around; the D-Link might have scrambled config files you should reset rather than rebooting. Happy hunting.

How do i reprogram a 2wire 2071-A


Do you have your instructions? I can tell you but it would be easier for you if you can just look at the guide and take your time. You can do a reset and then reprogram. If that's all you want to know I can do that. Would you want me to get you athe manual or tell you specifically how to do something?

D-link di-524up configuring router with bigpond


Hello cook_ka

You can find information about and downloads for your "DI-524UP 54 Mbps Wireless Broadband Router Plus Print Server" HERE on D-Link's Australia & New Zealand regional web site.

You can find its product manual HERE. Please, download this manual. (You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader or another PDF file reader in order to open the file.)

In order to access the router and get it configured initially, connect a computer to any one of the router LAN ports (NOT the WAN port) using an Ethernet patch cable.

The instructions for configuring your router begin on page 8 of the product manual.

This router has a configuration wizard as well. Instructions for using the configuration wizard begin on page 10 of the manual.

NOTE-1: The default IP address of your router is 192.168.0.1

NOTE-2: Don't try to access the router wirelessly until you have the router configured and your connection to the Internet working (using a "wired" connection from your computer to the router).

NOTE-3: I assume that, since your ISP is BigPond, that your Internet access connection is ADSL. In that case, you are going to need your ADSL login credentials (primary account user name and password) in order to configure the WAN side of your router settings.


Please, let us know if this information was helpful to you or, of course, if you have any further questions.
