1. Find out what the IP Address is on your computer and assign it statically
2. Open up the necessary ports in your Windows Firewall if it's enabled
3. Logon to the Wireless Routers web interface
4. Go to the "Application and Gaming" screen of your router
5. Input a name, the port number(s) (note: if only 1 port the start and end number can be the same), leave the protocol as both, type in the static IP of your computer, and check the enable box
6. Save settings

If you need more detailed instruction on the individual steps please let me know. I'm happy to break them down for you in better detail.

Hope this helps.

How to connect my Linksys router with my wi tribe modem?? my laptop pick up the wireless signal and can connect,,it says "connected" but when you open a page it says either "invalid server...


The Linksys Wireless router is fine, but your latop is not configured for DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol). The computer is connected to the router at layer 2, whereas HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol), sits
atop the TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) layer, and seems to be trying to
query the ISP's (Internet Service Provider) network for a nameserver (via DNS (Dynamic Name Service) protocol) that doesn't exist on the ISP's network. Configuring the laptop for DHCP and specifying no nameserver will fix this (the ISP's network will dynamically assign a DNS).

Its also possible (though a remote possibility) that your Linksys wifi router may be configured to disallow TCP/IP virtual circuits to/from your computer's IP address - but this is a really advanced
capability of your Linksys wifi router - few know this capability even exists.

Connecting multiple wifi devices to the Linksys router should be no problem, just configure them all to interact with the router using DHCP.

I want to know how to forword port. I use D-link DWA-125 Wireless Adapter. I want to create DOTA(being a host). How can I do it?


Hi,
If playing DOTA is the reason why you want to forward a port from your dlink router, I don't think that it is going to be necessary.
To be able to HOST a game in dota, you need to either be in a network or in a virtual private network.
LOCAL HOSTING - this means that you are hosting a game to PCs connected to your LAN under the same router. All you need to do is go to Local Area Connection in Warcraft TFT then create the game you want to host. If your friends is not able to see your game, make sure that your windows firewall has Warcraft TFT in its exceptions. Or you can turn off windows firewall as a workaround each time you play DOTA.
VPN HOSTING - this means you must have a specific software to use to host your DOTA game so friends can connect to you even if they are not under the same LAN or router. Best example of a software to use is GARENA. Garena is a vpn software that allows you to connect to players around the globe. You need to register a username and password to use garena. Download and install Garena to your computer. Login using your username and password to use garena. Once logged in, choose the room you want to host your game for. Choose the one under your current location (e.g. Choose Singapore if you are in Singapore). When you connect to the room, click Start Game to start your warcraft. You can HOST dota games by going to Local Area network in Warcraft TFT and create your game with a valid dota map. Same in LAN, you need to put Garena on the exception list of your firewall for people to see your hosted game.

Hope this helps.

I want to connect a Scientific-Atlanta WebSTAR 2000 series Cable Modem to a Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G wireless router but the linksys doesnt detect the modem and the computer wont let the setup program for...


Most Cable Internet Service Providers (ISPs) use Media Access Control (MAC) Address authentication to establish Internet connection for end-users. MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to the network adapter/s of the computer.
To set up your Linksys router to work with a Cable ISP, you have to enable the MAC Clone feature of the router. MAC Cloning is a procedure which enables a router to copy the MAC address of the computer that's registered with the ISP.
To setup a Linksys router with Cable connection you need to perform four steps using the computer that's been registered with the ISP:
i. Verifying Internet Connection
ii. Connecting Devices Together
iii. Checking the Router's LEDs
iv. Configuring a Linksys Router for a Cable Internet Connection

You can check the steps from this link on how to do the port forwarding for Warcraft III on your router, they should be similar even though this is a different model of router. Just click HERE.

Warcraft III: Frozen Throne - Can't host even though followed directions on portforward an etc., any solutions?


try with firewall disabled on computer? Some routers also include firewalls and require ports to be added to exception in firewall on router as well.

If that does not work set up computer as DMZ host in router configuration and see if that works.

Belkin 54 g wireless router....cant find on the net. need to port forward to host blizzard.net games HELP!


Make sure your private IP address is statically set.  Your public IP address is obtained from your ISP and is what other users will be connecting to.  You can not manipulate your public IP address so if your ISP is running DHCP, it is very possible that your public address is changing.  Also if you are frequently disconnecting your modem, it is possible your ISP is leasing you a new public IP address each time.  So try to keep things as static as possible.  As far as the battle net stuff.

Diablo, Warcraft II Battle.net Edition, and StarCraft: 
Allow port 6112-6119 TCP and UDP out and in
Diablo II: 
Allow port 6112 TCP out and allow established sessions in 
Allow port 4000 TCP out (realm games) 
Allow port 4000 TCP out and in (hosting open games only) 
Warcraft III: 
Allow port 6112 TCP out and allow established sessions in 
Allow port 6112 TCP in (hosting custom games) 
Allow port 6113-6119 TCP out and in (hosting custom games if you've changed the default port in the Options/Gameplay screen) 
If you are still having problems after you open up the required ports, try opening 116(TCP) and 118(TCP). I don't really know if these ports are required or not. 
I have had people tell me that opening up those two ports have helped them connect to battle.net.


Hope that helps.  For manipulating ports in your router I suggest consulting your user manual, or online FAQ.  Save your router config before applying any changes, and always remember, opening up ports subjects you to different types of security threats so be aware that is a risk you are taking.

Need To Configurate To Host A Bnt game


You need to log on to your router. Go to Start>Run>type http://192.168.1.1. then a login window appears. Leave username blank and admin for password. There you will find the port-forwarding, DMZ stuff that gamers use. Here is the link for Linksys info for your router http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/support/WRT160N Steve Medley
