Well i went thru this article.. i jus want to share some piece of information with everyone.. certain ports are secured ports and these ports cannot be opened with port forwarding...
ex: port number 443
for this one can try a port triggering or the DMZ option in Linksys..
this really works out and it worked for me..

Thanks,

Just for clairity, the above solution is for Port Forwarding, not opening a port. The port is actually opened on your firewall. If you do not have a 3rd party firewall or hardware firewall installed AND are running Windows XP/Vista you most likely have to open the port in Windows firewall which can be accessed through the Control Panel. Windows will allow many applications to open common ports. If the port is open then the above solution will forward the port from the router to a specific computer/device.

Open up internet explorer and type:

192.168.1.1 into address bar and press enter.

A login box should appear.

If you haven't changed the password, the default should be

User name - leave blank
Password - admin

Once onto router home page, click on 'Application and Gaming' tab.

Name the port (whatever you are using it for)
Pick the range (if one port, eg 20000 to 20000)
Select both protocol
Enter the ipaddress of your computer (find this by going to Run -> type 'cmd' and press enter -> type 'ipconfig' and press enter ->then you should see your ip starting 192.168.1.???
Enter this address into the Linksys page and then press 'Save' at the bottom.

Port should now be open.

NB - If its to be used with Azureus, this article may help:

SOURCE: cant open a port

First, go and call linksys's technical support. TO do it urself, go to port range forwarding, and enter the information necessary. I would call them though.

Playing WoW behind a router requires you to open ports for that game/application. It's quite a task but you can use this link as a reference:

It shows a step-by-step instructions on what to do and even has a screenshot of your router.

I hope I was able to help you.

To connect your computer to the router, all you should need to do is to connect the cables in one of the numbered ports on the router and then reboot your computer so that it pulls an IP address from the router.

Satelite Internet service vareis greatly from the normal setup required of cable or DSL providers, so perhaps you should contact your internet providers support technicians as those calls are free.

As for the gaming ports; in the menu of your router, you will find the port forwarding option available. Simply enter the ports you use to play those games with and you will be able to open them up for better game playing. Test it a few times to make sure you have the settings right, but it is normally fairly simple and understandable even if you haven't read the manual before.

Ps3


Are you going to connect your PS3 wired to your router or wireless?
1. check first if ps3 is working behind rca modem.
2. then connect a pc directly to your linksys router
3. open configuration page of linksys by typing your gateway on your browser. (usually it is by default 192.168.1.1)
4. go to applications and gaming tab
5. you'll find there port forwarding..key in your number there
> i guess your numbers are like 88 and 3764 (something like that)
6. if your trying to connect your playstation wirelessly, you need to know your wireless security (if your router is secured).
> go to wireless tab and look for wireless security
> get your key
7. go back to playstation and try to view your wireless network
> connect and type in your key
