There should be both a model number and a serial number on either the bottom and/or back of the router. The model number is what the port forwarding site needs. Sometimes the router has a vesion number as well. Be sure to provide this information too. If youre still stuck, head to netgear's website and try to match the router visually. Yet another thing you can try is to access the router via the internal gateway. The status section here can give you your model number.

In counter strike v1.6 online game i cant find servers list and in message it says no online games pass through filter settings


This is typically due to firewall settings on your machine and or router. If you are trying to play online over the internet make sure you have appropriate ports allowed through any firewalls you may have to the computer you are trying to play the game on.

BELLS RED FLAGS ALARMS WHISTLES WARNINGS
a site that requires you shut down protection,
has some intent of using that lack of protection.
usually its something nasty

online gaming should not require more than the opening of the NAT in the router to the address of the game host.
check the settings of the router many have prewritten rules for the major game hosts, that just need to have the checkbox marked.
I have 3 sons with different online gaming and have not had to disable the firewall

using the routers built in menu, cant tell you the address beyound 192.168.0.* because no details on router model, you can enable gaming mode, and leave the firewall intact.
goto the manufacturer(router) webpage and check the FAQ for your router

Cant play online games with my Gateway® M-6864 FX Black w/ Orange Accent. can still get on the internet but cant play online games.


Hi Bob,

If you are having issue playing online games but able to surf the internet, It means that the Firewall is not allowing you to play online games. Normally this is cause by a Firewall protection. As of now, DSL modems has Firewall features and you can manage them if you know so. But if you don't, contact your Internet provider to resolve this issue.

Cannot finish installation (Belkin F5D8633-4 wireless modem router N mimo)


ok, obvious questions first:

Do you have a different modem from TALKTALK? can you connect to the internet through that?

if so, you may not have to set a username and password for the belkin router: just connect the belkin router's internet port to the talktalk modem and let the talktalk modem handle the automatic connection.

do you know what protocol the talktalk ISP uses?  it's probably PPPOE; make certain that your belkin router is set to the correct protocol.  if you just hook it up to the talktalk modem though, you probably won't have to specificy a protocol at all.
