It doesn't go by company. I also have a router, and I can't give me IP for let's say netmeeting, I can't be invited for a convo on messenger, no one can send me files, ETC.

The reason is - The IP is for the router. Then, when lets say a file is sent to me, it stops at the router, because it doesn't know to which computer to go to. That's the same reason with the server.

Sorry mate!

Oh my, DC you couldnt be more wrong. If we no what the make is for the router you can find the solution. Also router are just what they are called routers. If you knew what you were doing you could figure out how to let people have access if you wanted too.

I've been with a router for 2 years, with their problems, I've asked millions of times... maybe it's not like that in countries other than Netherlands, Israel, Canada, Us, Germany, Belgium...

EDIT: Let's just not flame..

You have to usually set port forwarding on the router. That is, if your server is running on your PC on port 14567, you tell the router to send ALL information in/out to that PC, not keep the information itself.

And DC, relax, he is right, the company that made the router wil make it easier to give instructions on how to access the configurations. D-Link usually have one way, another company uses a web interface,a 3rd a command console, etc etc. The router manual or web site should have info on how to port forward.

If the router has a built in firewall, same issue arises, you need to let the router firewall know what to allow through and what not to.

Are you on DSL or cable? I assume you have the cable/dsl modem plugged into the router, then the PC plugged into the router as well. Your PC likely has an IP like 169.x.x.x, or 10.x.x.x There are sets of numbers like that reserved for internal networks, they are non-routable, that is the internet knows they are not to be used, and cant be accessd as normal IPs would.

p.s. why did you get the router, to share a single connection betweem multiple computers?

First off, sorry. :p

Second, Fragbait, if that last part was for me, I bought it for me and my mother to share the net.. It's 10.0.0.x . I'm wrong, but I don't know how to set it to lets say my computer. Here, It's not always by company's... :p I don't think you'll get me, different lifes... but I'll ask my tech-guy about that, because I want to be able to get files etc, and be like on a regular non router modem. I'm DSL, and yes, there is a built in firewall, that I do NOT want to disable ;).

Thanks!!

No need to disable, I have an FTP server and web server running behind a firewall. You just need to be able to port forward, check the web site for the router, it's usually pretty simple to do.

You should just have to set that one port (for BF) to go through the firewall, you don't even need to use the standard port if you dont want. I would never use 80 for web or 21 for FTP, or 14567 for BF. If I m a running a server its on one of the other thousands of ports.

Hi all,

One other thing that nobody mentioned is DHCP, routers usually act as DHCP servers for the network (some modems do as well if they have a built in 1 port router that can be plugged straight into a hub). To set Port forwarding for a particular computer you will need to ensure that the IP address for that computer is NOT assigned dynamically, otherwise it may be different next time you connect. Some routers get around this by setting the IP address for a computer using the MAC code of the LAN card as a clue, so that the same puter always has the same IP address (unless you change the LAN card of course). I have always found that you will have less trouble with games if you set the IP address of the computers manually (according to the specifications of the router of course).

Have fun
