Portforward.com has a great reference for most routers including yours. Verify what you did matches the instructions on this site.

PortForward.com instructions on how to configure DLink DIR 300
http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Dlink/DIR-300/GameRanger.htm

If you still cannot connect, verify GameRanger is allowed through your firewall. If you are using the Windows Firewall, temporarily disable it and see if you can now connect and host a game.

To disable firewall and change channel on the router please perform the below task:

1. Connect a computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports. Open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari).
2. Access the router, usually with http://192.168.1.1 or http://www.routerlogin.com.
3. Login to the router with the username as "admin" and password as "password" (please note that the username and password are case sensitive).
4. Click on WAN setup from left menu. Set the MTU size to 1400.

Cannot access wireless network using Sitecom 341N router - brand new - network showing up 100% strength but will not connect HELP please


If you have enabled wireless security on the router, make sure you are typing the correct network key. If you still can't connect, try to disable the wireless security first. If you don't know how to disable it, you may reset the router by presssing the reset button at the back for 30 seconds then unplug the power for another 30 seconds. You might as well disable any firewall on your computer like McAfee, Norton, Zone Alarm and the likes.

If a change in my firewall is preventing netgear router, i do i fix?


First, make sure the cables are properly connected, if using xDSL modem, it must be connected to the WAN port, the pc on the ethernet ports (any of the 4 ports available).
Second, check your current IP Address (default 192.168.1.x), then ping from your pc the ip address of the router (default 192.168.1.1). If OK, then your LAN connection works fine.
Third, ping any internet site, i.e. ping www.yahoo.com. if a reply response is received, your internet connection is now working.

If not, reset the router then do the initial set up from the router web page. Go to IE or mozilla browser, type http://192.168.1.1 (default ip add of router), the password or username is admin (default - refer to your manual). If already inside the page, go to the setup folder then proceed to configure the router. After all the configuration, check your internet connection, go to any web site.

Cannot omaha.com


Try adding it as a Trusted site under Internet Options. that makes no sense that Omaha herald would be blocked.

Maybe they have some kind of firewall settings or Spybot's TeaTimer running...and probably said no to one of the dialogs and it blocks the page based on a Blacklist.

try it. . .
