You need to set port forwarding for the correct ports, the default port number is 21. so you need to forward port 21 for 192.168.1.50

then go to www.whatismyip.com

copy your ip and add" :21 " without the " " in to the address so it looks something like this: 85.76.240.1:21

now your friend should be able to login from internet explorer for examble after typeing ftp://yourip:21 or from my computer by typeing ftp://yourip:21 into the address bar.

if you need more assistance let me know. im here to help.
Also if you are intrested we can try remote assistance to solve the problem but I would like some compensation for my time with remote control.

How to setup a virtual server on router


Virtual Server, also referred to as Port forwarding or port mapping can be setup with the router.

The setup of the virtual server depends on what you want to setup.

Virtual server is used to allow computers not on your internal network or computers on the internet to access a resource or service on the internal network.

For example:

Say you have an FTP on your internal network that you want people on the internet to access. To set that up go to the virtual server screen on the router and specify the IP address of the computer on the internal network that has the FTP server on it. The private port that you want to specify would be 21 because port 21 is FTP. The public port could be any number you want it to be, for ease of explanation lets just say it is also 21, that is the port the public would use to access the machine. For a computer on the internet to access the FTP server on the internal machine they would open up a web browser and type FTP://(WAN IP ADDRESS, found on main status page of router screen):21.

A better example would be FTP://1.1.1.1:21

Computer repair tech said Linskey wireless caused internet prob


If you are using DSL as your internet connection there is a timeout period that could be setup in the linksys.

In order to change this you need to log into your router and on check on the setup page. You see the timeout option.

Check with your linksys manual for detailed instructions for logging into the unit. If you dont have it, you can always get it from their website.

Share a PPPoE connection without modem


I think the problem is that the modem is not giving enough ip addresses. Try configuring it. Some modems are also a router. This means that it has the capability to provide more ip address so that i can connect more pc.

Installing


1. if your internet service provider did not provide these to you, they would stay blank. (most cable broadband internet would have these blank, for instance)
2. because you havent entered any dns entries. more importantly, most of the time what is more important is that you router is set to obtain dns from your ISP (service provider) if that is set correctly, its ok that they are all 0's
3. whether or not your connection should be set to the automatic type can only be answered by your service provider, most cable and some DSL broadband would be set to automatic, some DSL will be set to PPPOE, which will require the username and password given to you from your ISP. If they did not give you one, most likely this would be set to automatic.
4. DHCP server functions is what allows your individual computers in your home to share the internet if you have more than one machine. even if you do have just one machine, it should still be set to automatic.
5. The router name is for your reference, so you should name it something that is meaningful to you.

Dell Truemobile 2300 - cannot connect to internet


This is usually a router configuration issue. The router has to be configured to match your new broadband settings.

For example, your old DSL may have required some kind of login which was entered into the router. For most broadband cable connections, you set the router to get an IP address automatically.

Re-run the router Setup Wizard. You can download it here:

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: 192.168.0.1)
2.go to advanced tab
3.select DMZ
4.select 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

ftp://internet_ip

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

http://www.dynexproducts.com/skins/skin_1/Topics/Documents/DX-E401_Manual.pdf

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

Hope this helps!

Port Forwarding


Port forwarding is a method that allows you to run a server behind the router. Port Forwarding opens a specific port to a computer behind the router, allowing all Incoming Traffic on that port to be sent directly to that server. It should be used to setup servers behind the router, typically Port Triggering (Answer ID 344) is a better choice for non server applications (Such as instant messengers and game servers). Below is an example of how to setup Port Forwarding. For our example we will be setting an FTP Server and a Mail Server that uses SMTP and POP3. FTP uses ports: 20 and 21 SMTP uses port: 25 POP3 uses port: 110 Getting Started 1. You must set a static IP address on the server. If you're unsure of how to do this please go to Answer ID 534 for information on setting a static IP address in Windows. 2. Once the static IP address has been assigned please go to your desktop and double click on Internet Explorer (Located on the Start Menu in Windows XP) 3. Once "Internet Explorer" opens, please type http://192.168.1.1into the "Address Bar" and click GO 4. The "Enter Network Password" window will appear. Skip user name and type admin (admin is the default password) as the password, and click OK 5. This will bring up the routers "Setup" section. Look under "Domain Name" and check what version of the firmware you're using. 6. You will need to click on the Advanced tab to the very right. Once the "Advanced" tab comes up please go to the Forwarding tab. Firmware prior to 1.32 This will not work with firmware prior to 1.32

Multiple WAN IP Addresses with a Linksys Router


Yes, however we recommend using the following procedure is the only way you can do so without a block of IP addresses. The example below is for instances where you have multiple public IP addresses that are not in block form. For our example the ISP has given us 3 Public IP addresses. One goes to the FTP server, Web Server, and the Router. You can setup the router for whomever your ISP is. If you have a dynamic IP address and you're unsure on the setup, please see the article on setting up the router with a static IP address. If you have a static IP address please our article on setting up static IP addresses with the router, and it will describe how to setup the router with a static IP address. Once the router is setup, it will provide the 3 PC's (In our example) with internet access. The remaining two public IP addresses should be assigned to the WEB Server and the FTP server. Note - The Web and FTP servers will not be on the Local Area Network of PC-1, PC-2, and PC.
