Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Wireless Router (WPN824NAR)

Open Question

I have a NetGear WPN824v3 Wireless Router. I have two issues. First and most important is that it will NOT allow me to forward port 53 (DNS). It keeps saying that I need to check other areas of the configuration - some of which do not even INVOLVE ports! The SECOND issue is that I found a firmware upgrade, but the router says it is not a valid file. (WPN824V3-V1.0.8_1.0.7NA.img) Any thought? (FYI, I am a computer tech...)

    I found the solutions! The solution to the FIRST (unable to forward port 53 via the router) is to DEFINITELY upload the Firmware Update. TO LOAD that update, however, you need to use Internet Explorer OR an OLDER version of Firefox (2.0, not 3.0!0.

How do i enable ports 25 SMTP and 53 DNS on a Netgear ADSL2


It depends on your router. First you need to login your router.
Then you need to find the port forwarding field. There you tell which ports to forward. In your case its 25 with TCP transport and TCP and UDP for port 53.
For each port you need to tell the router where to send the packages to. So you need to know the IP of the computer you want to get the packages forwarded to.

Some more detailed instruction which depend on the Router version (ADSL2 is not a specific version!) can be found here: http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/n101145.asp or http://kb.netgear.com/app/home

I have the WPN824v3 and it can be balky finding and connecting to a network sometimes. It works best (and gets the best range) using the Netgear RangeMax Wireless USB 2.0 adapter (WPN111). The router and this adapter are (according to Netgear) specifically designed to work with each other, thereby maximizing both the range and the speed of the router.

I want to hook up my ps3 using my 595u sierra wireless air card how do i do it?


You'll have to set up "Port Forwarding" on your router.

Click here to see a picture of which ports to setup under "Port Forwarding" for your router and the PS3.

Here are the settings that you should use when you setup your PS3 with a static IP:

IP Address: 192.168.1.200 (Same as the one you used for Port Forwarding)
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default router: 192.168.1.1
Primary DNS: 192.168.1.1
Secendary DNS: 192.168.1.1

Connecting NETGEAR Wireless RouterWPN824 v2 to PC HP2009m tru Comcast Airrs Modem for use by Xbox360 in another room


Hi,
In this regard, I would recommend you to forward certain port no’s on
the Router.

Port numbers: UDP- 88, TCP/UDP- 3074

It is in this context, I would suggest you to please try with the
following troubleshooting steps:

A) Assign static IP and DNS address to the XBOX.

1. Assign IP address as: 192.168.1.50; Subnet mask as: 255.255.255.0
and Default Gateway as: 192.168.1.1
2. Assign Primary DNS Address as: 192.168.1.1 and Secondary DNS
Address as: 4.2.2.2

# Please Contact X-Box Technical Support to assign the Static IP
Address on Your X-Box.


C) Open the ports on the Router using the following steps:

1. Click on Port Forwarding under Advanced.
2. Click on ‘Port Forwarding’ on the left hand column on the screen.
3. On the bottom of the screen, click on ‘Add Custom Service’.
4. Give a name to the service (for example, XBOX1).
5. Select Service Type as UDP and key in the starting port and ending
port as 88.
6. In the Server IP Address specify 192.168.1.50
7. Hit ‘Apply’.
8. Click on 'Wan Setup' Under 'Advanced'.
9. Check the box 'DMZ Server'. Type in the IP Address 192.168.1.50.
Click On 'Apply'.
10. Log Out of the Router Page.

I am trying to open the router ports to allow a ps3 to connect. when i try to play call of duty:modern warfare 2, i keep losing the connection. can you help me open the ports and configure the settings?


Some times you will need to open the Logical Ports on the router.
These are the logical ports.
For this you will need to open the set up interface of the router.
Once you open the set up interface of the router, you will be able to find the settings on the router where you can open the ports for the particular program.

If you are opening the ports for a special device in your network, then you must know the IP address of that device.
For example, wireless camera, DVR, X-box, Play station ...
You can choose the option PORT FORWARDING for a special device application.
If you just want to open the ports for all the network, then you can choose PORT TRIGGERING



For example ,
You have a Linksys wireless router and you want to open the ports for the X-box.
You have opened the set up interface of the router. You will see Application and Gaming TAB at the top.
If you click on that tab you will find different Sub tabs.
Click on Port Triggering => Here you can open the port numbers for the network.
Click On Port forwarding if you want to open the ports for a special device in the network.
Click Save settings once you open the ports on the router.

Some of the recommended port numbers for different applications :

IMAP ==> 143 SMTP : 25
HTTPS ==> 443 HTTP : 80
DNS ==> 53 FTP : 21
SNMP ==> 161 TELNET : 23
XBOX ==> 53, 80-88, 3074
PS3 ==> 80, 443-447 ,5223, 3478-3479, 3658, 10070-10080.
WII ==> 28910, 29900, 29901, 29920, 80, 443
VPN ==> 1723, 500, 443-447, 10000-20000
World of Wars ==> 3724, 6112, 6881 - 6999

Router is a Netgear WPN824v3. The problem I am


Chances are that the router is set to manually assign an address if it doesn't receive an IP from the DHCP server.

I would first try removing all the wireless profiles and creating them again.
Also a windows update may have broken any firewalls you currently have installed so disabling them is also a good idea, then turn back on when you get it to work.
