i have some problems to configure the port forwarding in my router, don't it work ! but the port number 80 it works with my sub-domain in the internet. after i change this port to 8080 still dont work the port forwarding. the FTP server its ok.
When can we have an upgrade to include 'Lookback' function for Virtual Server ? I understand both Build-120802 and Build-120926 does not support this Loopback feature. Without the loopback feature, we won't be able to test out Dynamic DNS URL is working or otherwise on local PC.

I am trying to set up port forwarding on this router but it seems I need to use virtual servers but in all the guides there is a menu for this under the advance settings nat menu.I do not have that option, I have downloaded the latest firmware but still nothing.

I've been using the W8968 for a while now with the default firmware out of the box. Everything was working fine, except that during a hard reset (power off-an-on) all my port forwarding settings were gone. This was so annoying that I decided to upgrade the firmware to 120926. Now the settings don't disappear, but the port forwarding stopped working. I've tried to connect from the outside to all of the ports that I opened on the router, but it kept on saying the port is closed (even though it appears on the port forwarding list and the status is "Enabled"). The router firewall is also disabled.

After lot of troubleshooting and efforts I figured out there seems to be BUG with routers firmware 0.6.0 1.1 v0005.0 Build 120926 Rel.27100n.When you enable Bandwidth control, FTP stops working from Internet. However, it does work from local network. When you disable Bandwidth control, FTP starts working from internet as well as local network.
the difference between Virtual Servers and Port Forwarding on the DIR-825? I'm transitioning my router setup for a Tomato/MLPPP router to the DIR-825 and I'm a little confused on when you would use "Virtual Servers" and when you would use Port Forwarding? In the past, I've always relied on port forwarding to allow access to specific services on my LAN (ie. VPN, Apple Remote Desktop, etc.), so again, unsure what the Virtual Servers is used for?From what I can tell, Virtual Servers is for services that require a single port for communication (ie. a basic SSH setup on port 22) while Port Forwarding allows for the setup of services that require multiple ports (ie. VPN on ports 500 [UDP], 1701 [UDP], 1723 [TCP] and 4500 [UDP]). Is that the differences between the two configuration pages? It just seems odd to me to have two separate windows for just this difference? If that's the case, is there any reason I couldn't just use port forwarding, even for services that only require a single port (just to keep everything on the same configuration page, under Port Forwarding)?
I have seemingly tried everything! I am still getting vpn error 720 using windows client trying to connect to vpn server using PPTP. I am about to go out an buy another WNR200 because vpn works flawlessly on that router. I have 2 virtual servers set up, one for port 1723, the other for port 47(GRE). All the ALG check boxes are checked(I have tried them both ways, when they are un checked and I use port forwarding i get vpn error 800). I have tried with SPI enabled and disabled. No port forwarding set up for vpn just the virtual servers. Firmware is 1.34NA, 2010/04/16.

A couple of weeks ago I have bought a TD-W8961ND in replacement of my old modem/router (of another brand, to upgrade from Wireless G to N). I tried to replicate in the new router something similar to my old setup, so I programmed Virtual Servers (under the NAT menu) with the following rules: NATRules.jpg in an attempt to:
- grant access from "outside" Internet to my web server
- have a Wakeup-On-LAN from "outside" Internet ..etc.. without success. Please note that:
- I have successfully setup a DDNS server to reach my modem router from outside
- as for WOL, I defined my subnet mask as 255.255.255.128
- I have not set any other rule, nor in NAT, nor in routing or other
- I tried also with firewall disabled
- I do my testing by means of a smartphone with wireless disabled and Internet connection via mobile service provider
- Both the above mentioned functions were working with my old modem/router (and still work on LAN), and I have not changed other things (PC setup etc)

I Bought this w8968 a month back.. It was working alright till a few days back. When i connect and start browsing or downloading, it goes OK.. but after a few hours(sometimes 2, sometimes 1), It stops responding and I couldn`t ping 192.168.1.1 either through WiFi/Ethernet. Status indicators for DSL/WIFI/Internet/LAN all glowing as though nothing wrong with them..? The router is not that much hot when this happens.. When i switch off the router and then on, The Prob gets solved only to reappear again in 1/2/3 hrs..

'm having the same problem my tp-link freezes several times a day and only a hard reset will get it working again. I have no idea how to fix it, I have contacted tp-link support and they say to make sure I have all the right ADSL configuration parameters.

Like many others with the W8968 Modem Router we are experiencing sudden disconnections from the internet every 1/2/3 hours with the only way to cure the problem is to hard reset the modem router. For your tech staff on the phone to say 'I'll just have to do this" is completely unacceptable.I have used 3 other modem routers with the exact same setup flawlessly with no disconnections so it's 110% the modem routers problem.I'm pushing this message for you, TP-Link, to release a new firmware version to fix this problem.
I also believe there are other problems incorporating port forwarding,etc aside from this major flaw.I used to believe TP-Link was a trusted and great company but after my experience I'll be thinking otherwise.
Region : Malaysia Model : TD-W8968 Hardware Version : V1 Firmware Version : 0.6.0 0.4 v0005.0 Build 130217 Rel.62075n ISP : TM Streamyx I have internet speed : 8Mbps. The status of Internet in the modem config as foloows: UpstreamDownstream Current Rate (Kbps)636 10240 Max Rate (Kbps) 900 23412 SNR Margin (dB) 12.8 23.5 Line Attenuation (dB) 8.1 1.1 Errors (Pkts) 0 0
from the above informations the upstream is 636 Kbps but when I did the speed test it show me that the upload not more than 300 Kbps.
I used another modem D-link modem and the upload is more than 550 kbps when I used speed test.
Actually the upload is very slow by using TP-link modem and when I used another modem the upload is double speed.

I've connected a usb hard drive to my TD-W8968 and shared the root folder via storage sharing.When I try to copy files to the hard drive from my computer the transfer speed it about 700 Kbytes/s. When reading from the drive to the computer I get 2000 Kbytes/s.This is way below the 30000Kbytes/s that can be delivered to/from the drive when it's connected to the computer's usb. I've tried several usb drives and for all I get the same results.Is there a way to increase the read/write speeds for the usb connected devices?

yesterday (GMT) I received and installed my new TD-W8968 from Amazon and seemed to work a dream.. until today. The router connects to my desktop PC via a wired LAN connection but uses the wireless for laptop, TV, smartphone etc. Today I notice that when my PC wakes from sleep the LAN connection is lost. None of the LAN lights are on. And also there is no wi-fi connection either and even though WLAN light is on there is no signal at laptop. Setup is pretty much out of the box though I did reset channel to avoid conflicts locally. This is set to 7. The PC LAN adapter is enabled and ready but no apparent connection to router. I changed the router LAN port and that seemed to work but after I had the problem again this change did not work. I changed the LAN cable and that seemed to work until next sleep! Then fail again!
Is there anything on LAN adapter or router that needs changing? Am I on the latest firmware and would an upgrade fix this?

I just got the new TD-W8968, I was interessed to use the mediashare for streaming movie to my ps3 system. I found out that is not possible to have working subtitle. using a normal vlc the avi file plays fine with the same name srt file.

I recently bought this modem for use at home. When I try to log in to my computer at work I am able to log in to the server via a VPN connection but not onto individual computers via Remote Desktop Connection. Both computers run windows 7.

I Bought thisTD-W8968 a month back.. It was working alright till a few days back. From the past 3days i'm experiencing internet light and DSL light going off...The DSL light is not constant even for 5min...When the DSL light comes up, the internet light takes almost 5min to comeup or before internet light come up the DSL light goes off.There wasn't problem with my old UT star modem..I already checked,its running fine without disconnection..When i replace it with TD-W8968 router ,the problem continues.. When my internet connection was good...The SNR margin was like 25 for upstream and 31 for downstream...After 2 days it went mad. here are the images shows about current reading..Fluctuates between 0.2 - 100 upstream and 2-35 for downstream

I have a TD-W8970. In settings "Bandwidth Manager" there is an option to put a value between 1 and 8, but does not specify which is better (1 or 8). What the value to give more priority to a computer to another?

My TD-W8968 has begun to freeze up. It had been running for about two hours before this happened. It's a "slow" process that starts with the web interface being unavailable, i'm unable to connect to the modems web interface.And at about the same time it becomes impossible to connect new devices to the wireless network. Right about this point i did a speed test over the modem and performance was abysmal.It was so slow that my web browser believed that it was offline! But i was able to re run the internet speed test once more before it totaly locked up! At this point it was impossible to use the TD-W8968.
This was the,, i don't know,, perhaps the fifth time it happened in a row. It has been running perfect for two months before it began acting up like this.I have done a reset of the modem, didn't solve the problem.I have also done a reflash of the firmware, i've had the latest firmware since i bought the TD-W8968. But the reflash didn't solve it
Region : France Model : TD-W8968 Hardware Version : V1 Firmware Version : TD-W8968_V1_120926 ISP : SFR Device in question: siemans C610 IP voip phone Configuration:
* The C610 is directly connected to TD W8968 via the ethernet port number 3 >> ethernet port number 1 is connected to the devolo homeplug 200AVPLUS . The PC is at the other end of the homeplug network
* The DHCP address starts at 192.168.1.100 - 192.168.1.199.
1. It takes a long time (about 2-3 minutes) for the C610IP to obtain the IP address of 192.168.1.100 after the synchronisation of the ADSL line is finished 2. In the DHCP client list, I could only see the IP address of the PC (192.168.1.101) but not the C610 IP. However, if I type 192.168.1.100, I could access to the configuration page of the C610 IP. - I only managed to see the C610IP once in the DHCP client list.
I tried to unplug -> replug the router but to no avail.

I have just bought this new device, installed, DSL is working fine but not the USB printer sharing. Allways tells me: "This system was not supported yet." Here is the message box: usb_printer_error.JPG.I have a HP DeskJet 1050 and a Canon Pixma MP150 machine. I know, the HP is not in the supported printer list, indeed Canon is.

I'm getting to the last barrier to my Router USB printer working..The UPS is seeing my printer now but the last hurdle is the Printer Setup program. It is not comatible with Windows 8 apparently. The one I downloaded of the support site doesn't run either. Any news off one coming out for Win 8?
