Question about Zoom Computers & Internet

Open Question

I have a Zoom X3 modem and would like to be able to access devices on my internal network from the WAN. I have configured the "virtual servers" section to map the incoming ports to the IP address of the device I want to access. I have alos set up the IP filters to allow the incoming packets through. So far, I cannot access the internal device from the WAN, unless it is port 80, which is a default and doesn't need to be set up. Zoom tech support has been no help so far.

If you're within a network and try connecting to computers on it with the WAN public IP, it simply won't work - you must use the network IP. On an external Internet connection, it should connect fine to the public IP. If you have access to an external machine (remote desktop), or if you know of an FTP proxy, you can try it that way. I also believe http://www.webftp.co.uk/ a web based FTP client would act as somewhat of a proxy, you could try that with the public IP and see how you go.

SOURCE: 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

Your ISP probably has some setup requirements from the modem side of the router that will need to be identified.

SOURCE: Internet access

A router by design is to provide a connection between two different networks -- separate networks with different IP address ranges. If this is a corporate network or someone else's network connection of a router may be undesirable or forbidden by their policies check before proceeding. To add additional devices to a wired network can often be achieved with a switch or a hub instead of a router which is far less complicated. You have indicated there is a DHCP server to supply network addresses on the existing network making the switch or hub approach potentially available. If however you are attempting to connect a router to a single port modem device to your internet service provider this may well be the correct answer. If you are attempting to separate portions of your operations for security reasons this may be part of a reasonable approach.

In general to access the internet you need a unique IP address belonging to the network to which you are attached to operate on that network. The address range of the LAN side of the attached router must be different than else where in the attached network. So the 10.2.2 network assuming a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 must be unique to your router and not used elsewhere for other routers in the rest of your network. In addition you need gateway address and NAT (address translation) services to share the single internet address available to the internet in most home/small business environments from your router through the necessary routers all the way to the internet service provider's access point for your operation. You also need access to DNS servers to resolve textual names like fixya.com to IP addresses to route messages. Without any of the above your connection will not work. Some environments block direct access to the internet and require the use of proxy servers -- this could also be a requirement in your environment -- the configuration to access those can differ by facility and must be answered by the local administrative staff.

I hope the above helps

My belkin n600 keeps saying no internet connection the light is orange but the computer registers the router


Alright. The orange light means the router has no problems with your inner (private) network or its internal configuration, but it can't connect to the internet by itself. So obviously, your devices, which are routed trough your router, won't be able either.

I've compiled a small list for things you can check to resolve this issue:

- Check if your ethernet cable is connected to your router. It can be a CAT5 DSL cable or a CAT5 cable from your modem, to your router.
- Log onto your router configuration panel on http://192.168.2.1/ or http://router/ by clicking log in at the top (the default password is blank). Should you get any problems with logging in, you might need to reset your router (button on the back, hit once for restarting and hold for 10 seconds for factory reset).
- Your problem is with WAN (Wide Area Network) or the outer network, so you will want to focus of that area of the configuration panel. Hit "Connection Type" and make sure you configure it accordingly to your ISP. If not sure, you can try and check the LAN/DSL configuration on another device that can connect to the internet via an ethernet port (the CAT5 from your ISP or modem) or just try the "Automatic" option.
- Check out the "DNS" section in the "Internet WAN" section. If unsure, try setting it to automatic. This will inherit the settings from a parent device in the network.
- Working with MAC addresses can be tricky. They are the fingerprint of your internet device (router, computer, LAN switches, modems) and some ISPs register your devices for security purposes. You should probably call your ISP and ask about it, if they need this configured specifically, they'll tell.
- If you're using a number of routers or a modem and a router you may need to change your LAN subnet mask or routers IP address in either your modem or one of your routers settings. This is only necessary if they overlap on multiple devices.

I have to say, though, 99% of the time it's either cables left unplugged or DNS misconfigured.

Error code 651


Error code 651
This error corresponds to an error in a modem or any other connecting device
Try the folloging the instructions below:
If this is a dial-up connection, and you are using a supported external modem, turn off and then restart the modem. Close and restart Network and Dial-up Connections, and then redial. If the problem persists, try connecting at a lower initial speed. See To change the maximum modem port speed. Make sure you correctly configured your modem for remote access. To check your configuration, see To configure a connection. If this is a virtual private network (VPN) connection, you might have specified an incorrect TCP/IP address in the connection configuration, or the server that you are trying to reach might not be available. To determine if the server is available, see your system administrator.

How to set up wbr-3406 tx router with dsl modem


Take an Ethernet cable, and connect the Ethernet port on the DSL modem to the WAN port on the router.
Take another Ethernet cable, and connect one of the LAN ports on the router to the network-port on your computer.
Now, you should be able to web-surf.
Access the web-server inside the router, and run the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard", to configure your wireless networking.

Wanting to make my laptop wireless connection


Hello.

Connect the MODEM (device you received from your Internet Serivce Provider that gets the Internet signal) to the router via the WAN port. WAN stands for Wide Area Network and this gets you out to the Modem and then to the Internet.

Ports 1 and higher are for computers and network printers that you can directly connect to your LAN - Local Area Network.

To secure your connection, you will need to configure your router and you will need to connect your laptop to the router (either wireless or via one of the numbered ports on the back of the router), open a web browser and enter the IP address of the router.

Since you did not put the model of the router, I cannot give you specifics on how to secure the connection. You can go to the D-Link web site, find your router, download the manual and it will walk you thru the settings.

Basically, you will be entering a WEP key (a set of letters and numbers that you know) to allow only wireless computers that have this key.

DSL connection not being shared by Linksys RV042 Dual Wan router


Looks like your "modem" is actually a gateway, as is common with DSL devices. It's acting like a modem and a router. So you're actually connecting a router to your RV42. You could get this to work a couple ways.
1. Leave the modem acting like a router and configure the WAN connection on the RV42 as a static IP, and use the IP of the modem. You may also be able to use "obtain IP automatically" in the WAN connection. This way, the modem stores your PPOE information and just forwards the traffic to the RV42. Any devices behind the RV42 won't know the difference.
2. Configure the modem as just a modem (no routing). Your ISP should be able to talk you through this, but in the modem configuration you can look for what's usually called "bridged mode." Then you would enter the PPOE information in the RV42. This is my preferred method.

Router no connecting to the internet


You need to configure NAT on the router to permit the entire LAN to access internet

Example.
LAN Segnment is 192.168.1.0/24

1. Create an access-list to identify the local segment

2. Configure the Nat interfaces properly (NAT-INSIDE, NAT-OUTSIDE)

3. do the NAT configuration

i.e ip nat inside source list (ACLNUMBER) .....

Configuring ppoe connection with zoom modem


Your external (WAN) IP should be set to DHCP for most ISP's. Your internal IP will be the default gateway for everything in your LAN to get sent to. If you can log into the zoom with your browser, try that IP address for your gateway. If not can you let me know some more details on your zoom model.
