Question about Linksys WRT55AG Router

Static routing "Advanced Routing" on Linksys WRT55AG

I use a Smoothwall Firewall/Router to create a private 192.168.2.x (255.255.255.0) network. On this network I have networked printers with static IPs. I have connected a Linksys WRT55AG wireless router. I would like to make the printers on the 192.168.2 network available to users on the wireless network. I have tried to use the advanced routing to set up a static route to the printers. The Linksys local network/wireless network is set up as 192.168.3.x with the default gateway my Smoothwall firewall. I have tried many permutations of set up a static route to the printers, none have worked. If you have any explanations of how to configure the Linksys to route wireless users to my printers please share them. Thank you Mark Sykora, markrsykora@gmail.com, (262) 784-9612.

Do your network printers support TCP/IP printing? Are all of the computers on the same subnet? You mentioned wired versus wireless are the wired systems working? The important thing to remember when networking is only to use one DHCP server, I would recommend using the Linksys router as a  WAP (Wireless Access Point) rather than a router if you already have a Smoothwall that is working the way you want it to.

Any reason why they're not both on the same subnet?

Hi do I disable the proxy settings on a Linksys router model WR54GSV7


Enter "192.168.1.1" in your browser's navigation bar and leave the user name blank and use "admin" as the password(default).
administration window>Setup" tab > "Obtain an IP Automatically"
"Advanced Routing" >"Show Routing Table" for proxy.

How do i forward a port i want to play call of duty black ops but i cant find an online game, the game website says to forward these ports, TCP [80] UDP [88, 3074, 22728, 33233] but i dont know how to...


http://www.netopia.com/support/hardware/technotes/NQG_025.html
Server List (Port Forwarding) NQG_025 With NAT enabled, the IP addresses of nodes on your LAN are private since they are hidden from the Internet. IP Servers let you pass specific types of network traffic through the Netopia router's NAT interfaces. Once configured, selected types of network traffic, such as FTP requests or HTTP (Web) connections, will be forwarded to a specific host or server behind the Netopia router. Please Note: From the LAN (Local Area Network), you will also be able to access the servers that are responding to requests from the internet, but only using the internal private IP address. Access via the public IP address is not supported from a local ethernet connection. If your ISP is routing you multiple public IP addresses, you can also configure the router to forward all ports in one public IP to a designated private IP address on your LAN via Easy PAT List entries. For those instructions, see Quick Guide NQG_024: IP Mapping (Address Forwarding).
Please Note: If your router is currently running Netopia Residential Firmware with a web "GUI" configuration menu, this technote is not applicable to you. Most 3300 Series Netopia Gateways can be upgraded to Enterprise level firmware. Click Here! to purchase the upgrade key.
Related documents: NQG_039 NAT and the Basic Firewall
Firmware References:
  • v8.2 R1 (and up) - 3300 Enterprise Series
  • v5.3.7 (and up) - 4000 Series
  • v4.8.2 (and up) - R-Series

Before You Start
Telnet into the Netopia router's Main Menu at 192.168.1.1 (if using the default IP setting). If your network has a different IP addressing scheme, modify this accordingly. Click Here! for instructions on using telnet and Hyperterminal (serial connection).
Login with the user name and password. The Superuser login is required to save changes. If you are unsure of this, contact your network administrator.
Don't forget to press the Enter key to save any entries. Hitting the back space, delete or tab without first hitting enter will undo any changes.
The Esc key will take you back towards the main menu screen.
Once you have completed your configuration, you should reboot the Netopia to save and apply your changes.

Server List Configuration

  1. From the Main Menu of router console screens, go to Quick Menus, and select Network Address Translation.
  2. Select Show/Change Server List.
  3. Select Easy-Servers.
  4. From the Show/Change NAT Server List screen, select Add Server.
  5. Select Service and the service and port you want to allow. If your service and port are not available in the pull-down menu, select Other. Selecting Other will allow you to enter a specific service port or a range of ports since fields are provided for both a First Port Number and a Last Port Number. To allow a specific service port, the First Port Number and Last Port Number should be the same. Select Okay.
  6. Next, enter the Server Private IP Address, or the private IP address of the host/server you are forwarding the service to, and the Public IP Address you want to associate with the same host/server. This value can be left set to 0.0.0.0 if you are using the WAN IP as the Public IP address. Note: If your ISP is routing you multiple static IP addresses, other then the one used for Internet access, you may create more than one server for specific service as long as all servers have a different Public IP Address specified. For example, with two web servers on your LAN you would need to create two Server List entries for TCP 80 (www-http). Since each specific port (service) can only be mapped once using any given Public IP Address, a distinct public address must be used for each TCP 80 server list entry. It is not necessary for you to specify more than one Local WAN IP Address or Public IP Address in your router's configuration. As long as you are connecting to your ISP via a public IP address used for NAT, they are responsible for routing all other IP addresses via that connection.

Conclusion
You have now configured your router for TCP/UDP port forwarding. If you have a switched connection (ISDN or Analog), you will need to either disconnect and reconnect your Internet connection, or restart your router for the Nat Server List changes to take effect. If you wish to filter traffic for your static IP mappings, please see the following Netopia Technote:

Cannot connect through router, all light are on , cd installed , antivirus removed , windows firewall off


I assume you want to connect to the internet through the router. you have to have the router set as a gateway, I think by default it is not. Go to your browser, type http://192.168.1.1, login, click on advanced routing and change from "router" to "gateway".
The password by default is "admin".

Wireless router install on cable modem w/static ip address set


Connect a computer to linksys lan port 1-4, point browser to linksys http://192.168.1.1 under Setup->Basic Setup->Internet Settings choose "Static IP" and fill in the fields below... the field for gateway should be set to the static ip of your cable modem. the field for netmask should probably be 255.255.255.0. It may help to turn on DHCP for local network so that lan hosts can get their ip's from the linksys.

Unable to access Internet, WAN IP Address present


First you will need to open up your internet browser (Internet Explorer/Netscape) and go to http://192.168.1.1. You will be prompted for a username and password. By default there is no username and the password is admin. Once you arrive at the routers setup page click on the Advanced tab. Once the page finishes loading, you'll find you will be on the "Filters" tab. Look down and make sure that there are no numbers other than 0 in the boxes on that page. If there are, then you will need to replace them with 0's and click Apply, then Continue. Once you've done that, you're going to want to look for Dynamic Routing at the top, and then click on it. Once that page finishes loading, make sure that the "Working Mode" is set to Gateway, not ?Router?, and that tx and rx are set to Disable not RIP-1 or RIP-2. If a static IP address has been set on the computer, verify the gateways matches the Router's LAN IP Address. If there aren't any installed gateways, add the Router's LAN IP Address. When setting static IP Addresses, you must also input the DNS servers. For more information on assigning static IP addresses, please see the related article on assigning static IP addresses. If you?re still having difficulties, please contact Linksys Product Support.
