Speedtouch 585V6, mapping ports doesn't seem to work properly. I need port 343 mapped for my work vpn, done it on other brands of router but this one is getting the better of me, as it disconnects from the vpn after 30 seconds.

    Thanks for the promt response. I'm sorry to say I tried that previously and did not work. I spoke to thomson helpdesk and they said it should. I tried resetting to default config and re-created the gaming application but it's still not playing. They even gave me a set of telnet instructions that I tried and still no joy. Even set it to a DMZ, disabled the firewall. I connected the laptop to my Netgear router and can set it up to work in about 15 seconds, so not the lappy thats a problem.

    I use cisco VPN Client and it uses

    UDP port 4500, If your using a Cisco VNP Client then try opening UDP 4500 and 5000.

I can get on yahoo email account but cannot connect to yahoo messenger. I receive message that my yahoo virtual IP server failed. What can I do to use yahoo messenger?

You shouldn't have a virtual ip number unless you're using a VPN to connect to the net. Check your firewalls, router, anti-virus and make sure the port yahoo msg uses isn't blocked. Yahoo messenger support site should tell you what the port address is that needs to be opened to use it. TYpically they are not blocked but a firewall or other, like router or anti-virus may be configured to block the port,.

What is ip mapping? and how i can use two or more internet connection at a same time?

IP mapping is the practice of recording multiple devices within a network by their IP address to assist in troubleshooting.

You can connect multiple devices to one modem using a router. The router splits and directs the signal from the modem. If you are using auto-detection for internet connection, they should pick up their addresses automatically, however you will need to have someone set up the router to path properly.

How to map usb ports USB1, 2, etc.

You don't map the Universal Serial Buss. You just hook all the devices to the connection points (ports). The computer find them by device, MAC address, etc., not by port number. You can hook up to 127 devices to a computer, and the computer will talk to all of them regardless the physical point of connection. That's the reason, you can buy USB hubs with 4 or more connection points that plug into an USB port (how do you map that?).
USB1 - 6 is for you to know how many devices are connected to the computer via USB at a certain time.
So if your printer is configured for USB1, what ever port you plug that printer in, will be USB1.

Ich habe einen speedport W721V und weiss nicht wie ich µorrent zum laufen bekomme

Kommt darauf an was du meinst damit, daß es "nicht lauft". Am unteren Rand des Fensters von µtorrent sieht man in der Mitte der Statusanzeige einen farbigen Punkt. Wenn dieser ROT ist, hast du wahrscheinlich ein NAT-Problem (vorausgesetzt, du hast deinen Port in deiner Firewall freigegeben. Wenn noch nicht, dann solltest du es jetzt tun. Wähle einen Port im Bereich zwischen 49152 und 65535, der ist nämlich bestimmt frei).
Meistens kommen NAT-Probleme daher, weil der Router den Verkehr für unautorisierte Ports blockiert; das ist eine Sicherheitseinstellung, kann aber auch mit normalen Datenverkehr Probleme machen. Neuere Router haben oftmals die Unterstützung des UPnP Protokolls eingebaut. Schau dafür in deiner Routerdokumentation nach, wie du diese Funktion im Router aktivieren kannst. Danach setze in µtorrent unter: "Optionen" "Einstellungen" "Verbindung" "Aktiviere UPnP Port Mapping" einen Haken. Das farbige Symbol (NAT-Anzeige) sollte von gelb auf grün wechseln, sobald du erstmals eine eingehende Verbindung hast (natürlich wenn du einen torrent laufen hast!). Wenn es aber rot wird, oder du im Reiter "Protokoll" eine UPnP-Fehlermeldung erhältst, dann schalte UPnP ab und leite deinen Port manuell weiter. Sollte das nötig sein musst du den Empfangsport für µtorrent einstellen. Dafür unter "Optionen" "Einstellungen" "Verbindung": einmal auf den Knopf "Zufälliger Port" klicken, und notiere dir den vorgeschlagenen Port. Diesen Port musst du jetzt in deinem Router weiterleiten (forwarden). Du kannst aber auch einen Port deiner Wahl verwenden. Jetzt den Haken bei "Bei jedem Start von µtorrent einen zufälligen Port wählen" rausnehmen. Damit bleibt der Port immer gleich. Wie gesagt, idealerweise steht bei deinem Port z.B. '34250-34377 Unassigned' (wenn du z.B. den Port 34343 gewählt hast). Das sollte es sein, wenn du noch Hilfe brauchst lass es mir wissen.

I have a thompson speedtouch 510 that works just fine but when i add my SPARKLan WRTR-141 it wont get connected neither by the computer or the laptop. i have 2 ethernet cables i added one end of the first...

Have you gone into the SPARKLan and configured it yet? It should be like this Speedtouch>SPARKLan>your computer in to the SPARKLan.
Turn on your new routers SSID so it can be "found" by the wireless devices. You should turn OFF the DHCP server in the Speedtouch and turn DHCP ON in the SPARKLan.

Hope this helps.

I have set up my wireless router and it works fine on my computer but my other computer gets on the internet but will not get on a vpn network. what am i doing wrong

Make sure to open the ports of the VPN tunnel your are using to the router.Ask your tech support from your office (to where you are connecting to) and ask what ports needed to open ojn the router. Once you got the ports, contact router manufacturer to help you open those ports.(windows firewall might also be blocking the ports so try to disable it).

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?
