Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 Port Forwarding Changes Not Saving
Oct 31, 2011
Im trying to open up some ports on my e3000 for the use of Teamspeak and my Teamspeak server. However when i get of the information filled into the single port forwarding under the Gaming & Applications tab, and click save settings. The page just refreshes, with none of the changes being saved.
I am currently attempting to port forward on my Linksys E1200 Router and am not succeeding in saving my settings. I am attempting to open port 25565 though both Single Port Forwarding and Port Range Forwarding, and whenever I click the "save settings" button, I receive a full window message stating that my changes have been saved. Upon clicking this, I return to the previous screen whereupon my changes have been erased and my port has not been forwarded. Linksys E1200 Router not saving Port Forwarding changes.I have tried:
-Restarting the Modem -Restarting the browser -Restarting the computer -Tried to Port Forward through both the Single and Ranged Port Forwarding
I have an E3000 with firnware 1.0.04. A forwarded port is spontaneously changing the IP address assigned to it, but with no change indicated in the singel port forwarding configuration.I have a web server on IP=XXX.XXX.XXX.7, and another device on my LAN with an internal web server at IP= XXX.XXX.XXX.8. The single port forwarding configuration is:
HTTP, external port 80, internal port 80, protocol=TCP, to internal IP address xxx.xxx.xxx.7, enable checked The configuration is saved, and all works well for for hours and/or days and I can use the web host from the intenet as expected. However, after a few days or hours the E3000 suddenly starts sending the http traffic to IP=xxx.xxx.xxx.8 instead of xxx.xxx.xxx.7. When I log in to the router and look at the port forwarding page, it still says it's forwarding the http traffic to xxx.xxx.xx.7 ~ even though all http traffic is being sent to xxx.xxx.xxx.8! I have to reboot the router to get the port forwarding to work properly. If I leave the device at xxx.xxx.xxx.8 powered off, the router seems to work fine for extended periods.
There are no port forwarding services in the router that reference IP=xxx.xxx.xxx.8 , and it does not appear that the port forwarding problem is related to DHCP. All devices on my network have a reserved DHCP address based on their MAC. It does not appear that the spontaneous port forwarding change occurs when when the xxx.xxx.xxx.8 device powers up and gets it's address via DHCP. I have also deleted the xxx.xxx.xxx.8 device from the DHCP reservation table and simply access the device as needed by referencing it's IP, and xxx.xxx.xxx.8 is outside the range of DHCP assigned addresses, and the spontaneous port redirection still occurs once in a while.Is there a known bug where forwarded ports are sent to the wrong IP address?
I've set up my E3000 (and the WRT54g it replaced) to use dynamic DNS (using dyndns.org) to forward a domain to a particular IP address on the network. Works awesomely.
I now have a situation where I am setting up a local network (no internet access) where I want a few other local users (an iPad and a laptop) to be able to access a couple websites (let's say x.me and y.me) on a machine also connected to the router.
As an aside, It seems (just from casual testing) that if I am on a machine on my local network and I try to access my dynamic domain (that I route through dyndns.org) and it seems to resolve right away without going out to the internet. Is this correct? Does it automatically route anything on lan directly?
There is no "blinking light" indication on my E3000 at the Internet (Yellow label) and Ethernet port no 4. I tried plugging in 2 cables at all of the ports. I got the blinking indication at Port 1 through 3. The same cable's have no response at Port 4 and Internet port. As a result my I am not able to connect to the internet.
I've made an observation that the newer routers above my E3000 don't have LED icons to indicate the port is connected/active and also to show Wi-Fi is active? I find this good at a glance without having to go look in the back of the unit to see which ports are open etc.
I have external hard drive connected to E3000. It is formatted as NTFS and working fine. However if I disconnect from router and connect to PC usb port directly, I get a message that hard drive needs to be formatted.
I have a linksys E3000 and a WD My Book World Edition 2. (WDMBWE2)What i want is to access my WD from any where. I have tried setting up a simple single port forward to the WDMBWE2, which worked great. I was able to view all my files from anywhere.however, i wasn't prompted for any login.so basically anyone could access and modify all my data.I have obviously deactivated this again.
I have already tried setting up user accounts on my WDMBWE2 to try and solve this, but that only creates the problem of my TV and music player not being able to access it anymore(they both cant type in login information).Is there any way to make the E3000 prompt me a for login/password when requesting that port?
I am finding it impossible to set up port forwarding. No matter what I do I remain completely stealthed when I do a port probe via [URL]... The only way I seem to be able to open a port is if I enable remote management. When I do that, whatever port I specifiy as the remote management port is then fully open. Obviously, I can't leave a port exposed like this and, anyway, I need to open multiple ports for my purposes.
I use modem and router to connect to the internet.When I connect my PC directly to modem port forwarding is working.When I connect my PC through my router the port is closed. I followed instruction for port forwarding.
I'm trying to port forward with the Linksys BEFW11S4, I've followed all the instruction from support website. I went to the Application & Gaming then Port Range Forwarding. I changed the settings so I can access this IP remotely. When I try to log into this IP from a different network it wont let me.
I am trying to install and use EchoLink on my pc's and they require port forwarding for 5198-5200 but I'm having trouble with theTo IP Address" as I don't know what # to use. It says I can't use 192.168.1.1 since it's the same as the LAN IP address so what do I use? I am trying to follow the instructions on [URL] If I leave it just as 192.168.1. it won't accept it and if I use any other number, it accepts it but I still can't get through.
My first issue with this device is when I try to untick NAT to disable it I lose my internet connection. This also disables access to router's address 192.168.1.1 forcing me to reset the device and set it up all over again. Why is this happening? I tried this at least five times with the same result. Second question I have is if the DHCP reservation is the right option if I want to forward ports for certain applications like Vuze? When the DHCP reservation window opens I see all my wireless devices in the list (laptop, phone) but not the main computer which is connected through ethernet port. But that is yet another problem.
I've got a cable modem, connection is set to Automatic DHCP and I all want is to disable all firewalls, NAT and other unnecessary protection that's slowing my internet speed, set up MAC address filtering, port forwarding and close this terrible software so I never have to see it or think about it ever again.
I just bought a WRT120N wireless router, and have run into some strange problems with port forwarding. I have a two router setup, because my ISP have set it up so i can only use my router from them to get my connection, and then i just have that one connected to my WRT120N. So my setup looks like the following:
The problem is that ONLY the three first ports works. I have forwarded them in the exact same manner, give it a name, put in the same external and internal port, and enable the port forwarding, but according ot can you seeme.org, only 4667, 6112, and 4669 can be seen, the rest is not responding. I even tried to enable port 21, which is a default setting in the router, but it will just not work.I have of course tried to reboot both router and PC, upgraded the routers firmware, but no luck.
I'm a happy user of the E4200 for a few weeks now, and all in all it's a very robust and useful router.Within my network I have a webserver running using both HTTP (TCP 80) and HTTPS (TCP 443). I want to make this webserver available to the internet and so I configure port forwarding to forward port TCP 80 and TCP 443 to my internal webserver. As soon as I now apply these settings, I loose connection to the webinterface of the E4200 and get connected to my internal webserver. I would expect the router would only forward connections coming in through the external interface of the router, however this is apparently not the case (or at least not in my setup). So I tried setting up remote management on a different port to at least allow me to remotely manage the router, but this does not work from my internal network.
Right now, I'm assuming I'm doing something wrong, or have miss-configured something. Is it possible to switch the webadmin port to a different port (like 8080 and 8443)?
I've read over the FAQ and followed the normal instructions for port forwarding, but can't seem to get it to work with this particular router, E2500. I have tried both the single port forwarding and the multi port range forwarding, and neither works. I've tried an older WRT54G router and port forwarding works fine on it, so I know it's not my ISP.I'm running the latest firmware provided by Linksys/Cisco.
I recently got a e2500 router and set up the port forwarding for my ps3. But then i go to check the ports to see if they are open and they all stay closed.I have no clue whats wrong as I have entered the port forwarding info correctly as I got guideline from portforward.com but still no luck
I'm trying to forward my ports and I've been following a guide from [URL]. It's simple, but it's not working for me. I couldn't find my router on their list, so I'm assuming the worst and that it's not supported for the Port Forwarding. I just went with the normal WRT54G without the version 8 and tried it that way, I didn't get anything out of that either. It keeps telling me that the port isn't open and I can't receive the information packets that they're sending me.
Im going to change my NAT status to "open" on my xbox 360, but I don't have access to the router I think. Its my grandmas internet and im going to be here for 10 days so it could be nice if you could tell me the username and password so i can open the ports?
i am trying to port forward my router so that i can run a minecraft server. When I put in th port number and save the changes, it brings me to a screen that says my changes have been saved yet when i go back to the page they haven't. I have tried deleting the cookies on my browser, using another browser, using another computer, and hard resetting the router for ten seconds. None of this works.
I'm trying to set up my WRT54G wireless router so.i can port forward the relevant ports for my programs. I understand that you have to set up a static ip address before you can do a port forward which makes sense as you do not want to keep changing the ip address for the forwarding settings every time your network refreshes. But I cant seem to have it set up. And is there a rule that the static ip that you set should not be within the dhcp range?After setting up the static ip and setting up the port forward settings how do I test if the port is being forwarded correctly?
I set up my new E4200 to forward port 7300 to a computer on my LAN. I had this working on my Linksys WRT160N and copied all of the settings so they are identical to those on that router but forwarding does not work. I have tried single port forwarding, multiple port forwarding and even DMZ with the same lack of results.
IPort forwarding simply does not work with this rounter on Comcast. I called comcast to see if they were blocking ports and they insist they ARE NOT.So what can it be? Was on FIOS with their modem/router combo and port forwarding worked like a charm with them.I've tried single port forwarding, port range forwarding, yada.
I am using the correct internal IP address on the machine I want to enable port forwarding on..Latest firmware is installed 1.04 or whatever (just purchased the router and updated during the Cisco Connect install on the 29th). Guess I should go find a cheaper router that actually works...
I upgraded to a 6500 from a e4200. I use ports 81-84 on test web servers set to static Ip,s when I open the ports nothing can get through from the outside. I can hit the pages internally on those ports and IP's but not from my external ip to those ports. When I set my old router everything is fine.
How to forward a single port to a different port to a specific computer for the WRV210 router?
I would like to forward port 10100 to port 25 to my mail server. There are times when our people are at a hotel and they block port 25 and I have done this in the past on a BEFSR11 and BEFSR41 router. There does not seem to be a Single Port Forwarding setup page and the Port Forwarding setup page only allows you to forward a range to a specific computer, it does not give you a different port you can assign an incoming port to.
I have the most current firmware revision, 18.104.22.168, and Hardware Version WRTR-221G_V01.
I just noticed that i have port 10080 open on my router (wrt160nv3). Port forwarding is not configured and web administrative access is only allowed through https (443). DDNS is also disabled, I was wondering why this port is open.
i have a WRT160N V3 and DMZ or Portforwarding dont work.i tried locally following
WAN_PC-> WAN-PORT -> WRT160N V3 -> LOCAL-PORT -> LOCAL_PC The WAN_PC has a Static-IP 192.168.1.2, Subnet 255.255.255.0 The WAN-PORT has a Static-IP 192.168.1.1, Subnet 255.255.255.0 ON the WRT160N V3 i configured a DMZ on 192.168.0.100.and Disabled the Firewall. On the LOCAL_PC (192.168.0.100:8888) is a Apache
So when i type 192.168.1.1:8888 on the WAN_PC i get NOOO Website from the Apache on 192.168.0.100:8888?
I set up port forwarding on my router. When I go to canyouseeme.org and put in my public IP address (I can ping the IP address with no issues) and the port that I'm forwarding it says it can't hit the port.
When I try to set a port for forwarding and set the IP address to forward to:192.168.1.108 (of course, I only type in that last number, 108)I get an error message that the number must be between 1 and 65535. It is! Why am I getting this error message?
I recently purchased a Slingbox PRO-HD and the iPad software to view HD on my iPad when I'm away from home. When I setup the Slingbox using their web-based configuration program, it reports that I do not have my network configured for the best performance for internet viewing, which is what I need for the iPad. I suspect that I don't have port forwarding for port 5001 correctly setup on my system. I can successfully connect to my Slingbox away from home on my iPad and my laptop, but the performance is indeed poor.
I have a cable modem and two E2000 routers. The first E2000 is connected to my cable modem in my home office and the second E2000 is in my home theater. I used Cisco Connect on separate PCs to setup the two routers. Here are the details:Cable modem:Scientific AtlantaModel DPX2203 SeriesPart number 4006351'Ethernet' connected to Router 1 'Internet' connection.
I have a Cisco E4200 with a Thecus NAS behind it. I configured port forwarding on port 80, 1080 and 4433 to access the NAS. However it's not working. Also tried to place the NAS in DMZ, but also I cannot connect it from outside my network. Inside my network, there is no problem.I also connected the NAS directly to the internet, and then I can access it from outside my network.I already tried a factory reset, disabled UPnP and IPv6, but nothing seems to work. I also replaced the router with a Cisco E3200, but it makes no difference.
