Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have 4 computers connected via LAN/router to TalkTalk via buffalo WBMR-G54: PC Intel Mac Pro G5 1.6 eMac 17" Up till the switch to TalkTalk all 4 were happily connected to the internet. Now, while the first 3 are connecting OK, the eMac seems to be continually stalled or very slow. I have checked the settings, which are the same as for the other 2 macs. I've also repaired permissions, Disc Warriored TechTooled I've clean installed. I've created an admin account on the eMac with the bare bones and it's still slow. I've tried a spare identical eMac with the basic system on and it's the same slowness I've swapped ethernet cables. A MacBook via wireless is also working perfectly The eMacs even seem to find it slow to access the router itself what can be the problem? cheers peter

    wow - I totally missed your response. Is there a way to get email notification in future from these forums?


    I understand the manual IP solution and tried it, but it didn;t help.



    In the end the problem was solved by swapping router/modems, and everything works well.


    thanks hothawk! :-)

I have a Buffalo WBMR-G54 ADSL Router. The local IP address of the router is 192.168.1.1. My Medion desktop computer connects connects to my Buffalo router using an Ethernet cable. I use the wireless...


> Zone Alarm free firewall and Avast antivirus have been installed on both computers

Your router is already acting as a "firewall" to block "unsolicited" traffic from reaching the computers on your LAN. So, unless you use Zone Alarm to block "outgoing" connections
(such as a computer-virus would try to make when "calling-home", there's little benefit
to using the Zone Alarm software.

> If I use Internet explorer to connect to http://myname.dyndns.org, Internet Explorer does connect successfully to the network. However, it invites me to enter the username and password for my Buffalo WBMR-G54 router - not for the storage drive.

While you are "forwarding" TCP port 21, you are not "forwarding" TCP port 80 (as used by the 'http://' protocol). So, when you connect from the Internet to your "public" IP-address, it is the router that responds, rather than one of your computers inside your LAN.

IMHO, it is "bad" that your router's web-interface is "exposed" to attacks from the Internet.
Either "forward" TCP port 80, or configure the router to use a _different_ port number for "remote management".

> If I enter the Router user name and password, that allows me to access the Router menus via the Internet, which confirms that my account at DynDns has translated the IP address successfully.

Correct. Hopefully, you're the only one who knows the correct username/password, and there is nobody that is doing "brute-force" attacks on your router, trying to login to "hijack" your router.

> if I use Internet Explorer or FileZilla to access ftp://myname.dyndns.org, I cannot connect to the router

Correct. The 'ftp://' protocol uses TCP port 21, which the router is "forwarding" to one of the computers on your LAN.

> or the storage drive - so I cannot access any of my files remotely.
> FileZilla reports -Status: Resolving address of bob1944.dyndns.org
> Status: Connecting to 78.144.xxx.xxx:21...
> Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message

So far, so good.

Is FileZilla expecting a "specific" content in that "welcome" message, or will "any" response be "close-enough" ?

On a computer on the Internet, open a command-line prompt:

Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Enter FTP bob1944.dyndns.org
Press Enter
Do you get a "connecting" message?
Do you get a "connected" message?
Do you see the "welcome" message?

Note that the FTP protocol usually uses _two_ ports for File Transfer:

* port 21 for "control" (sending/receiving commands/responses)
* a "random" port for "data" transfers (including directory-listings)

It's this "random" port that your router is not forwarding.

However, some FTP-clients (probably including FileZilla) and some FTP-servers
support "passive" mode, where both the "control" and the "data" connections "share" port 21.

So, configure FileZilla to use "passive" mode, and _hope_ that your FTP-server supports "passive" mode.

I've had a new laptop but require my security key, model WBMR-G54 to access the security enabled network, from my old laptop.


If you've forgotten the wireless security key you entered when you set up the router you can reset it by connecting to the router directly with an ethernet cable instead of the wi-fi. Plug a cable into the router and then laptop and access the setup page for the router. See the manual (or download one from the buffalo site) for setup instructions.

I reset my router, and now I cannot connect to it with it's http://192.168.11.1/index.htm address. Is there a step I didn't have to do before, or is it possibly broken?


Make sure that router configuration switch is in AUTO position AND your PC is connected to LAN port.
Power cycle both, computer and router.
192.168.11.1 is default address and should be accessible after.
