My x-box tells me to open port to connect, i cant get it to work. bungie net tells me to open port 802.11 n not b or g . i cant make it work,x-box tells me my nat is not open. please help. thanks ...


The Linksys router, like any other router, will block "unsolicited" traffic from the Internet coming "into" the router (for "forwarding" to your computer that is "behind" the router).

So, you need to access the web-server "inside" the router, from a computer that is "behind" the router, and you need to modify the "blocking" of the router's "firewall", to "allow" (instead of "block") traffic from the Internet to a specific port-number.

You'll also need to "forward" that port-number to a specific computer "behind" the router.
Compare to a secretary that receives telephone-calls for several managers in the office.
When somebody calls the office, the secretary may look at the caller-ID, and may choose
to *NOT* pickup the telephone, i.e., to "block" the incoming call. Thus, none of the telephones
on the desks of the managers will ring -- they will not receive any notification that the secretary
has "blocked" the call. Or, the secretary may recognize the caller-ID as being that of the spouse of one of the managers, and may just "forward" that incoming call to the correct manager.
The secretary needs to know which of the telephones is associated with the spouse of the caller, so that the "correct" person responds to the incoming call.
The secretary is doing the 'NAT' ("Network Address Translation") to correctly do the "forwarding".

Similarly, the router needs to be configured to do the 'NAT' correctly.

No special firewall rules needed for DPH-540 and Dlink DI-604 router


My DPH-540 works fine behind a DI-604 NAT router, without any special firewall configuration on the DI-604 (I connect to either RingCentral or SIPPhone). I hope to get another SIP phone and see if both phones can work simultaneously behind the NAT router; many web sites suggest that a different proxy port must be used (the default is 5060).

I cant play online becouse of this a NATtype3 what dose this mean


Nat 3 is the result of being hooked into a router without being properly setup for data transfer. essentially it is restrictive.

There are 3 ways to change your Nat type to type 2 or 1. (Nat type 2 meaning that it is properly setup without restrictions behind a router, and Nat 1 being a direct connection to the Internet).

1.) Hook the PS3mag-glass_10x10.gif directly into the modem will result in a Nat type 1, but of course that means disconnecting everything but the ps3 and that's an unnecessary hassle.

2.) Going into the router settings and Port Forwarding the PS3's necessary ports to the Ps3's ip address.

3.) Probably the simplest (on most routers) and most effective is to go into the router and set the PS3's ip address in the DMZ (DeMilitarized Zone), essentially the router doesnt have any say from what comes and goes to the Ps3, which is good so the connection isn't hampered.

Hi, I experience also performance issues with the VSG 1200. Did you found a solution in the meantime? I already have the latest firmware installed. I notice that within the internal LAN ping times are sometimes too high to the device

Can not ping our netvanta 3200 from behind a Linksys nat router


The switch between the NAT routers and the Netvanta had some faulty ports ... the physical connection was broken. Once the switch was replaced, the internet connection was restored.

NAT problem


First to answer your questions:
1) Why are all companies that make routers retarded? They aren't. There are some very good router vendors out there, but the one you have isn't, in my opinion.
2) Is is that hard to have a simple and efficient way to make an option to open your nat? To answer your question with a question...can you do any better? If not, then yes, it must be that hard. Now some questions for you. Do you have any idea what "open your nat" even means? Do you even know what "nat" is? To give you a quick overview, NAT (Network Address Translation) allows all of your IP addresses to hide behind one public address that is given to you by your ISP. Without NAT, you would have to have a public IP address for each device on your network that needs to talk to the internet. I am sure your ISP would be happy to provide you with that...for a hefty fee.
Now, for some commentary on your approach to getting your solution. Rather than complain about the router you have or blaming them for making something difficult and inefficient, why don't you describe your problem and let the experts here help you through the problem.

I dont know how to change NAT type.


since NAT has to be set on the Linksys...
you will have to use the software provided by linksys, or use a web based interface which connects to the linksys and you can do the respective changes...!!!

Port Forwarding for Apache Server


Hi Robmoll,
Let's get a little bit more in detail. I'm doing the same exact thing you are trying to do with a D-Link DI-624 and I'm using NO-IP instead of DynDNS. I'd like to ask you a question, if I may, what are you actually seeing now using port 80 and how did you disable it? Can you connect another PC to the same router (making a small Home Network) and test locally your Apache and eventually your web-page by typing something like this "http://192.168.0.101/"? Are you already able to see your router from the "outside" trough port 8080? Are you specifying your "private" IP in the port forwarding setting of your router? Do you mind showing a snapshot of your port forwarding settings? Here is mine; you see two different IP's because there are two PC connected.

Regards,
GiBi
