New Router, DNS Server issue

Q: New Router, DNS Server issue

I went out and bought a Linksys WRT160N V2 to replace my old wired router (which I had NO problems with, btw) and started having this problem on the XP computer that was hardwired to the router. My main computer (Vista) that was using the wireless adapter had ZERO problems.

The other day, I decided to switch the location of the router and modem to be closer to my PS3, so now my main computer is hardwired while my XP computer is using the wireless adapter. Now my main computer is having this DNS problem. It literally took me about half an hour to be able to reply to this thread because all I kept getting was "Internet Explore cannot display the webpage" and a "diagnose connection" button.

I noticed the pattern to this problem was right after I fired up my computer. What boggles me, is that it's NOT an internet connection problem. I say this, because my MSN Messenger will sometimes connect right off the bat, being able to chat with friends and whatnot, but when I try to check my email or go to any other page for that matter, "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage." And if it's not not being able to display the webpage, I get a Google page saying "Oops! This link appears to be broken" and a thing in the upper right hand corner saying "DNS error - cannot find server.

Now, my PS3 and my XP computer are both having the problem loading webpages within 30 minutes of connecting to the internet. There's gotta be a solution for this, but I haven't found one yet after searching for the last month.
I don't believe there's something physically wrong with the router, but I do believe the problem lies within the router and it's maybe it's relationship with Windows. Though, my Vista machine didn't have a single problem using the wireless adapter, but my XP machine does. So maybe it's the router's relationship with Windows Networking system. Bleh....

Preferred Solution: New Router, DNS Server issue

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: New Router, DNS Server issue

Even though it appears you're having the same problem, please start a new thread when you have a new issue. It's very difficult to keep two problems straight and who's working on what in a single thread.

I've created a new thread for your issue here.

Note: You will need to post complete details of your configuration and your specific issue in this new thread for us to help you.

I have 2 servers and want the main server WFS1 has dual nics for different networks.

I want to configure the main server WFS1 to pass data to WFS2 for terminal services.

My router config will direct the terminal server traffic to WFS1 however this is a SBS2003 machine and will not allow more than 50 users to logon!

My second server is Standard 2003 and can handle the workload however I am not sure how to configure the first server to achieve this.

The router is on a 192.168.1.X subnet and WFS2 is on 192.168.4.X subnet, remember WFS1 (where the router is currently pointing) is on a 192.168.1.X and 192.168.4.X (as it has dual NICS)

Short of installing another NIC into WFS2 I am sure there is a way to 're-route' the traffic to WFS2.

Any ideas?

I am having an issue with offline files created offline syncing back to the server. I have set up a network share to be available offline on a client computer. All files are available offline without issue. Here is the issue however. If I set the folder to work offline any file I create in the folder when it is offline just disappears when the folder comes back online, there are no conflicts or sync failures reported in sync center. If I create a new folder offline the folder does sync back to the server. Any changes made to an existing file are also replicated back to the server once the share is back online. So the issue is only with newly created files when the share is offline. I have not been able to replicate this error on any other file server in our environment, However I have recreated the issue with multiple shares with multiple Win 7 clients on this file server.

Steps taken so far.

Checked and reset permission levels on the share.
Recreated new shares from scratch for testing.
Disabled and enabled offline files on the client computer and cleared the offline cache.
Check various registry entry settings.
Disabled cashing on the File server.
Tested with XP the issue does not exist with XP.

I have spent hours researching this error online to no avail.

The clients are running Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit
The File server is Server 2003 Standard 32 bit with SP2

Any help or ideas would be most welcome.

I've seen the complaints about this problem but with no clear resolution. There are some hot fixes listed that may help, updating to Windows 7 SP1 is supposed to help in some cases but nothing seems for certain.

No way for me to recreate this problem but apparently others have the same problem.

PC1 is able to connect to SRV1 to see and look in FLDR1.
PC2 is unable to connect to SRV1 to see and look in FLDR1.
Now there are multiple means of connecting to SRV1 to see the share FLDR1.

The following connections were done in combination with the following methods;

We run a web proxy server on our network for internet access.
On client machines (running Windows 2012 R2) I have configured the proxy server setting in Internet Explorer "Tools\Internet Settings\Connections\LAN Settings" to point at the designated web proxy server.
When attempting to browse websites from IE I receive the "The proxy server isn't responding" error.
Conversely, browsing the same sites via Google Chrome and Firefox (installed on the same client server) return web pages without error.
In addition, if I run Internet Explorer as administrator (Right Click\Run as Administrator), I am able to browse web sites without receiving the error.
It would appear that the issue is isolated to browsing via IE when not run in elevated mode.
Has anyone come across this issue?

Ok, I'm trying to set up a CS match server on a computer at my house. Problem is, I'm on a router, so all the pc's connected to it have local ip's, so basically im just putting up lan servers, not internet. I've forwarded the necessary ports (it works because i tested hosting capabilities w/ wc3 and it worked fine) but for some reason the HL Dedicated server client just hosts on that local ip. So I was wondering if theres anyway to host. Maybe using external ip somehow? Or am I destined to buy a server?

Ok, I am 10 minutes away from being totally bald!

Here is my setup.

Windows 2003 Server (Domain Controller, DHCP, DNS, Active Dir.)
5 XP Pro Clients
D-Link DSL 504T Router (

I will try my best to explain!

The server has 2 NICs. The first NIC which is connected to an 8 port switch is set to The second NIC which is connected to the ethernet port on the router is set to with a gateway of (the routers IP). I have setup the NAT service on the server so the client machines can access the internet from the LAN. I have set my ISPs DNS server IP as the servers Forwarding DNS server.

All the clients are connected via switches to the network and can access the server for file sharing, print sharing etc perfectly.

The ISP username and password is setup on the router and is connected fine. I have disabled the DNS Proxy and the DHCP server on the router but left the NAT service running.

Here is the problem! Can you guess yet?! I can access the internet perfectly directly from the server but if I try on any of the client machines I get a DNS error page in IE. I tried to ping bbc.co.uk from the client machines, the host name is resolved to an IP address but all I get is Destination host unreachable. I cant even ping or from any of the client machines, i get the same response Destination host unreachable.

Thanks to every1 who help me for the last prob. This time, I want to host my own web space. I have a domain and it points to my ip, this is not a prob. The problem is that when u type the web address, it brings up my router's web server/config util. I've set the router up to forward port 80 to (web server) and I have configured IIS on the web server to show my test page. The web server works on the LAN and I know the problem is with the router. I have a D-Link 504T modem router, and I'm really not sure what the problem is. There are no virtual server settings on the router, there is only a port forwarding option.


A:Web Server Behind Router

Are you testing it from outside your lan?

Some routers, especially those with firewall capabilities don't traffic that exits the router for something behind it. I haven't had a chance to take a look at your router though.

Are you forwarding TCP and UDP to your internal web server? If the traffic being forwarded is a protocol you aren't forwarding all traffic will stop at the router.

Also, if you are getting the config page for your router on your outside interface you may want to fix that before you publish a server to the outside.

Hope this helps.

But when I use my other computer to try to get to my site (by myip.us or by my ip adress) it gives me a prompt for a password to get to my router. I log in from that prompt and it brings me to the settings for my router? I don't know how to configure it so other people just go to my site instead of the router prompt.

What is the Exact Make and Model number of your Linksys. What you will need to do is setup your router to do port forwarding. YOu will need to forward port 80 on your router to the internal IP address on your lan. On my router it is listed as Virtual Servers. Your manual should show you how to do this.

Hello everybody,

I have an Apache 2.0.55 web server setup on port 80 - along with PHP/MySQL. I also have a Linksys WRT54G v5 Router and a static IP address. The problem here, is that when I go to (the router's setup screen) under Applications & Gaming -> Port Range Forward, I have setup port forwarding for Apache, Port: 80, Protocol: Both (TCP & UDP), IP Address: (this PC's IP address - the one with the web server setup on). But the problem is people who are not in my Network still cannot access my Web-Server. Now, I assume I am giving them the correct IP address - which is the IP address given on the router's setup screen under Status. I have everything setup correctly and it should work, but I have no idea why it won't work. Maybe, am I giving them the wrong IP address? I doubt that though because I get the same IP listed under my Firewall (ZoneLab's ZoneAlarm), under my Router's Status page, and at the two following sites: http://www.whatismyip.com & http://www.ipchicken.com - so I can't possibly be giving them the wrong IP address. And when I have my Apache server not running and go to the IP, it times out (obviously, it should). But when my Apache server is running, in Firefox I get an alert that says "The document contains no data.", in Internet Explorer I get a "Cannot find server".

I can ping the loopback address.

I've been having a problem with my router lately. It's a pretty old NETGEAR WGT624 (around 5 years old) on a 2Mbps connection, and recently, it's starting to get connectivity problems (DNS lookp failure) more and more, causing me to have to power-cycle the router every now and then; after I do, I get internet for about 5-10 minutes before having to do it all over again, which is obviously getting annoying. There are 3-5 devices connected to the router on average, and this had never been a huge problem until recently.

A few weeks ago, in the midst of this problem I reset my router to its factory settings, and the problem did not resurface until a couple of days ago. I reset it to factory settings again last night and it worked fine until the problem occurred again this afternoon.

The Windows 7 troubleshooter tells me that I might need to replace or reconfigure my router, but I can't exactly get a new one just yet. Is it really just showing its age, or could it be just overworked?

Any help is appreciated.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

Hi, I am trying to host a client server for the game "Counter-Strike".

In the past, after forwarding the correct ports for the Dedicated Server application, I used to be able to run a well maintained game server for up to eight people without consistant and irritable lag on the server. That was almost a year ago.

Now when I try to run my server through my router, lag is in abundance, where no more than 1-2 players can play without the server providing an unplayable environment. I don't know if my router became old and grouchy, or if I can optimize any settings on my router to make it operate as it used to a year ago, with no bandwith issues.

I have a Linksys BEFW11S4, which routes my Verizon Online DSL connection. Never have I had problems with this before, but now it seems that my connection can not hold up a small game server anymore. I also have a Pentium 4, 3.0GHz Processor with 1.99GB of DDR1 RAM.

Someone give me advice how to either optimize my router/DSL connection, or what router to purchase for hosting this kind of bandwith use. Thanks in advance.

You need to do port forwarding for the following:

Outgoing TCP to remote destination 6003.

Has my ip number changed now that i installed the router. I am the main one on the router and the other computer is an addition. Any help would be appreciated.

First i start a little of topic: thank you guy's for helping me on my last problem thanks.
but i have a new 1 for you
I'm trying to connect over VPN to a other pc there both on the same network so i try locally first it works.
After that i go trow my router i port mapped port 1723 TCP and UDP to the server and 500 and 50 and 51 and 47 all TCP and UDP after i did this is try connecting going to the outside.
And what happens then:
everything looks well at start than i get the “verifying username and password” screen then it just dies out slowly and pain fully.
Do i just miss a port or what ?
Anybody had this problem and fixed it ?
Thanks for reading my post.

I am having issues getting my Windows Server 2003 machine to be recognized by my home network. I just switched internet providers and got a new router. The router doesn't seem to be recognizing my server as it isn't assigning it a new IP address. The server has the same IP address as it did with the old router. All other computers on the network don't have this problem.

Can anyone help me troubleshoot this issue? How do I force my server and/or router to recognize the server and assign it a new IP address? Thanks.

Hi people. I have a cheapo ebuyer adsl\wireless\firewall router.

Using Serve-U I have set up a ftp server which I can access using the lan.
However when accessing it via my fixed ip address I get an unspecified code error. I have used various clients.

Running Serve-U on fully patched xp pro sp1

Things I have done:

Port forwarded ('virtual server') ports 21 to 21 to local port 21
made the ftp server fixed ip
turned off the firewall (temporarily)

If I turn on the ftp server on the router i can ftp to my router using my ip address, so i don't think my isp is blocking anything.

I have tried changing the port numbers to 8888 etc.

I have tried all 4 combinations of client server pasv/active

Hope you can help, if not the only thing I can think of is updating the firmware on the thing and it nearly broke last time!

ps In testing my ftp server I have used the network and therefore the router to access my ip address. I'm not sure if this is a problem. Is there a chance the server will work if I try to access it from dial up for example or from a proxy?

Many thanks

Hi I set up a FTP server behind my router and it is configured to update noip dynamic dns server. I have forwarded port 21 in my router to the servers IP but when I try to connect to the server from an outside line I keep logging into the router instead. I have disabled remote access on the router but still it is trying to log me into the router and not the server behind it. I would also like to know this, my router has an option to update noip but I have installed the noip client on my server which will update it every 30 minutes. Should the one in the router be disabled? My guess is it shouldn't matter which service update method I use.

We have a Local Area Network at work and on this network we have a VM Server with Windows 2003 Server R2 that we plan on using for Active Directory and this server also has DHCP and DNS Server configured on it. is the Server IP. NAT is not configured on the server but is configured on the router.
From this Network I have my own private address range
which connects to my NAT Router. I am able to get an ip address of from the DHCP Server for my XP Client

interface vlan10
ip address
ip nat outside
no shutdown

Next I setup a second interface on my NAT Router.
Interface Vlan 300
ip address
ip nat inside
ip helper address
no shutdown

I set up the range on the same DHCP Server
When I connect my Windows XP Client to Interface Vlan 300 I am unable to get a DHCP address on this client but on the server it says that it received an ip address.
DHCP Server address
ip address

DHCP Server Setup
Vlan 300
ip range -
DHCP Options:
003 Router
006 DNS Server
015 DNS Domain Name SQA.com
046 WINS/NBT Node Type 0x8

Any Ideas on how to fix this so I can get a DHCP address on Interface Vlan 300 I am assuming it is a configuration issue.

A:DHCP Server behind a NAT Router

it's actually a routing issue; if you can add proper routing from the router to the server,
it will all work.

HOWEVER, it would be far easier to just place all systems in the same subnet.

Is it better to have my win2k server distribute IP's, or my my router? Is there a difference? Are there any benefits or drawbacks from doing it one way or the other? What would happen if both are set for DHCP? Thanks

Just wonder how all requests for web pages on my server are forwarded to a certain computer on my LAN (the web server computer).

The server and some clients are behind a router/firewall and when someone wants to view my web pages of course I want the web server to answer the request. No client shoudl answer it.

How is that done?

A:How can I forward port 80 on my router to web server?

You should have a GUI management page that will allow particular ports to be forwared to whatever LAN IP address is required. e.g. a Netgear router will have a "Port forwarding" link in the "Advanced" section from where all the necessary forwards can be set up.

What router are you using - a make/model would help people to direct you to the necessary GUI pages or point out the details in the user manual.

Will a canon pixima iP4000 work wireless or wired with the USB print server on the router? If so how do i configure?

I purchased a Netgear PS101 print server to share my printer with my home network utilizing a Linksys BEFW11S4 router. I installed the Print server software and connected it to my router via hard line. The problem is when I go into my Linksys Router to set up the printer I can't see where to define the IP for the printer.

The Print server software doesn't see it either. What am I missing here? Or could it be that my printer is not capable of using the printer server (Epson Stylus C62).

A:Print Server and Linksys Router

You are trying to configure it from the wrong place. I don't know how that print server can be configured, but the router is the last place to try.

You might need to use some special software to give it an IP/configure or maybe it wants to use DHCP to get an IP and will provide you with a web interface.

You an see from your router config the existing IP addrsses that have been given out. If you see something besides your own computers then that is most likely the print server.

Ok I think that I have a problem with my router NETGEAR WGR614v7 because here is the problem that I have with running the dedicated server, My brother and I run Steam on the same network and we have different ip's, and different accounts, but both of our computers go through the same router along with the dedicated server and my dad's computer, and when I start up the dedicted server from another computer, not the one I am playing on, it shows up on the servers internet list for both of us, and it also shows up on mine and his lan list because we are on the same network. When I join it, it still shows up on the internet list, but when he joins it, after about a minute it doesn't show up on the internet list anymore and only shows up on the lan list. Nobody exceot for me and my brother has joined the server yet, I forwarded port 27015 on my router. Now my question is Is this a problem with my router?, or should I run the dedicated server off of another router?

I'm in the process of setting up a small film studio who just moved. I just started with the studio after the move, so I don't know how everything was set up and my boss isn't very tech savvy.

Here's the issue:

She told me that she used a wireless router as a print server to connect a wired networkable laser printer to a main router, which is upstairs.

If the main router was on the same floor as the printer, I would obviously just move the printer over the the router, but since it's actually in my boss' office upstairs and we need the printer downstairs, I can't do that. The printer has been broken, so I haven't been able to play around with it recently, but before it broke, I plugged it in and couldn't figure it out.

Any ideas?

4 Dell laptops and docking stations (3 downstairs, 1 upstairs)
Wired laser printer
Netgear 54b router (downstairs)
Comcast-provided router (upstairs)

Hey Guys, I have a Linksys WRT54g router and am trying to run a proxy server behind it (on my Windows XP computer). The server is called Privoxy.

Here is my situation:
1. If I plug straight into the computer (no router involved), the browser can connect to the proxy server via the external IP address. This works fine.
2. If I keep the router plugged in, the browser CANNOT connect to the proxy server via the external IP address.

I can connect to the proxy using the internal (LAN) IP address when the router is plugged in. Just not via the external IP.

As you can see, something with the router is blocking access to the server.

So, I tried port-forwarding for that port...didn't work.
I tried using a DMZ...didn't work.
I turned off "Block Anonymous Internet Requests" and "Filter Internet NAT Redirection"...didn't work

I am completely stuck here. The browser can connect to the server when the router is taken out of the equation, but cannot when it is.

Do you guys know any better proxy servers that can run on Windows?
