Linksys Wireless Router :: EA6500 Port Forwarding Not Working?
Nov 30, 2012
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.
I recently bought a EA6500 to replace a EA4500 (defective). Prior to the EA4500 I had a 160N which I now use as a WAP for 801.11G devices. I thought the 4500 was good from the media server functions it offered.However since installing the 6500 I noticed:
1. I have port forwarding for http to a web server. It works fine from machines on the outside but from my local subnet 192.168.1.x I can't access the web server (I can't even ping the external address - and yes I turned the anonymous filter off). I am not using ddns and I have a static ip address (cable modem connected) to the outside world.
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.
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.
Having a problem with port forwarding on their WRT400N? I'm forwarding one service (https) and this stops working if it's not accessed after a 10 days or so. The only way to get it to work again is to reboot the router. I’m running the “latest" firmware, which is an oxymoron considering it's been over 12 MONTHS since Linksys updated the code... Which is appalling considering this appears to be their flagship wireless N router.
I am trying to run a server for minecraft, which some of you may know primarily uses Port 25565. I have tried everything that I've seen suggested. I have a Linksys WRT54GS router that I have my 2 xboxes, playstation 3, pc, and wii connected to. Now, I don't use any of these components at the same time. I had an issue with my xbox and the game "Black Ops", where my NAT type was strict, but a microsoft support technician walked me through port forwarding for the xbox, and it worked. My NAT type was displayed as "open" now. This is not the case with Port 25565 however, as even though I've port forwarded 25565 to my static IP i set up for my PC (which is my server PC), Port checking sites such as "Yougetsignal" and a couple of others are still showing no connection for the current external IP and Port 25565.
I went through ipconfig in windows "cmd" and made sure I had all the ip's and subnets and dns' and whatnot correctly entered in my routers configuration page. I went into Windows firewall and put new rules for port 25565 into incoming rules. None of this seems to work. I even shut off the firewall completely (temporarily, mind you), just to eliminate that possibility, to no avail. Still getting negative responses from these sites. I am able to log into my server myself, using "localhost" as the address, but none of my minecraft buddies can get on my server. I've also tried to use Hamachi to set up a server, which doesn't need ports to be forwarded, but although they can join my hamachi network, they can't join the server. Obviously there is more of a problem than just not being able to open ports, and I am at a loss.
Also, I am aware that my external IP, given by my ISP, will change with every disconnect and reconnect of my signal. I got my current IP address during this time and gave that to my buddies so they could join the non-hamachi network. For the Hamachi server I edited my Hamachi network IP into my server software's properties file, where as it would be left blank for my non-hamachi server.
I have some hardware on my internal network which I want to send udp packets. I can connect using telnet to it prooving that TCP and port forward works but when I try to send a UDP packet externally it fails.I can however send the same packet internally and port forwarding works fine.My router is Linksys by Cisco WAG320n.
I'm trying to open some ports for my webserver, I've configured the static IP and forwarded port 80 to my server's IP and I checked the port on canyouseeme.org and it says it's closed. I've tried multiple ports (21, 22, 7878 whatever) and all do the same thing.
So my next step was to try DMZ on the server's IP .. still no happiness .. ports stay closed. I checked this on multiple computers and it still won't open any ports for any machines on my network.
Updated to the latest firmware .. didn't make a difference. My ISP doesn't block any ports (didn't have any issues on my old router.
I have got a Linksys @ Home HG200 V2 G Gateway. I am trying to setup port fowarding but its not working. I have gone onto the routers port forwarding setup page filled it out but the port is still closed.
I recently buyed a Linksys EA6500 wireless router. I accessed [URL] to access the settings interface of the router. Went to "Connectivity Internet Settings" and chose type of the internet connection as PPPoE. Entered the username and password, clicked ok.
Since a couple of weeks I have a linksys EA6500. When I go to the device list to see which devices are online the device list is not displayig the correct data. I see devices online that are offline and also devices are offline that are at the moment online. When I try to delete a device that is offline in the list I get error 2315. I have that error in the local and cloud interface. The list has a frozen state from a particular moment.
When I reboot the router then all devices in the list have status offline and the device list stays that way. Nothing gets online anymore or will be added. When I reset the router to factory default all keeps working without problems for approximately 24 hours and after that the problem occurs again. The list freezes again and you are not able to delete a device.
I searched the forums but no one has this problem. I only can find a post that describes my problem but for them a reset worked. In my case a factory reset works also but the problem keeps coming back.
None of the port forwarding settings are working at all on my router. I have just a couple very simple settings. One of them is just an IP camera. I input the name, the TCP port, the computer (IP address) and that's it. This works just fine with my other Netgear router, but with this router, NADA. The router has the latest version of the firmware applied. Just applied it. Hardware version B. Firmware version: 2.10NA. If so, then I really need my money back since it is a main function of a router and it should work. Can't return it now, since I bought it several months ago. Never knew port forwarding didn't work because I never needed it until now.
RV215W router port forwarding not working.Port forwarding works for a short period of time, then stops working. Reboot router, works again for short period of time, then stops again.
I have updated firmware to latest. I had seen other similar bugs posted for 220 and I think 180, not sure if this router has similar bugs and waiting for fix release to firmware.I had recently purchased two, one deployed, will hold off on other now because of issues, and may have to move to different unit if a resolution not found this week.
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 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'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.
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
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...
