Question about Linksys WRK54G Wireless Router

The wireless connection from the router constantly cuts in and out. I currently have port forwarding enabled for one of my computers which is connected via ethernet cable, but I don't know if that can be a cause of the problem

No , The port forwarding will not affect the wireless connection.
OPen the set up page of the router. On the setup page, you will find the option MTU. If it is set to Auto change it to Manual. below that you will find size. Change the Size to 1365. and click on save settings.
Now unplug the power to the router and plug it back in. Wait for a minute and try to go on line.
If that doesn't work then try to upgrade the firmware of the router.

Hi, my Belkin N Wireless router works in some way fine with both Wired and Wireless connection, but there is a problem, it will only allow me to connect wired to my computer and not to my PlayStation 3......


You may need to change settings in your router to enable your online games to work. Some games need to use specific ports; these ports may be closed due to the router's firewall. Please refer to your game's documentation for the ports required.

Use the following answer to configure these ports in your router.



In order to configure this, you need to know:

- The IP address of the computer or device to have the port forwarded to.

- The port numbers to be used and whether these are TCP or UDP ports

(Note: We recommend you use a computer that has a wired connection to the router.)

Setup steps:

  1. Open a Web Browser on the computer. Type in http://192.168.2.1
  2. In the address bar of the Web Browser type Click Login in the upper right hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click submit.

  1. Click on Virtual Servers under Firewall in the menu on the left

    • Click Enabled
    • Type a general description of the application i.e.. Remote Desktop
    • Type the port(s) specified by the program manufacture for both of the Inbound port fields
    • Select TCP, UDP, or BOTH for the Type.
    • Private IP address: Enter the IP address of the computer you want grant access too.
    • Type the port(s) specified by the program manufacture for both of the Private port fields.

My email does not come thru when my computer is connected to the router


did it work before? what did you change on your router? can you change it back?. does it work when you computer is directly connected to your modem?

if you download your email into an email client (outlook, outlook express, other)? you may need to configure the port forwarding on your router to allow the port used for this type of information to come through.

first find out the ports used, (if you use pop3 the port number is 110) but find out what specific ports are being used as per your email client configuration.
now go into your router's configuration page and go to the port forwarding section (under advance configuration) on you router and enable these ports if they are not enabled already enabled. (if your router is in fact blocking this ports this where the blocking happens) unless there's a good reason for you to configure this, do it otherwise leave the advance settings alone.

your router manual can be found here

good luck

I have a Belkin Wireless router and I have a PS3


Actually you don't need to forward ports when playing online games. The router should automatically locate the ports for the game because it has UPnP function. Here's what you can do. Disable the port forwarding and DMZ that you set on the router. Look for the UPnP function of the router and disable, Save it. Enable it again, then save. Now power cycle your router. If you have Static IP on the PS3 network settings, try to set it first to automatic IP and automatic DNS.

Hope that helps.

Port fowarding and remote desktop


Port forwarding is not the only thing that you have to enable to access your home network. Firstly do you just want to access your router from the outside? If that is the case enable remote login via the administration tab.
If you want to login to your computer from the outside then you must first enable remote desktop and enable port forwarding on your router.

You enable port forwarding for port 3389 which is the remote desktop port. So start port is 3389 and end port is 3389 after that set a static IP on your computer that you want to access.
You can enable remote desktop by following the directions below at the link '

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/mobility/getstarted/enableremote.mspx

After doing this. What you do is go to the status tab of your router. Look at the IP there.

On the remote computer lauch remote desktop and enter that IP then click connect. IT will then ask you for the username and password of the computer behind the router that you want to login to. After that you should be able to get in.

If you need any clarifications regarding this you may message me and id be glad to help.
