Q: Internet Service – Personal Router – Static IP – MAC address of LAN Port or WAN Port

Internet Service Personal Router Static IP MAC address of LAN Port or WAN Port

Hello friends,

I have purchased static IP from Local ISP Provider . Problem is that the tech support of local ISP provider is asking em

Which Port would you like to bind your Static IP

Also they ask me whats the MAC Address of Router

I know we have two ports in router (mine is Netgear 300N Model)
1. WAN (Internet) Port
2. LAN Port
Could anyone really help in explaining me
1. Which one is routers mac address
2. Static ip should be binded to LAN or WAN Port

Preferred Solution: Internet Service – Personal Router – Static IP – MAC address of LAN Port or WAN Port

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.)

I Don't know what your talking about directly but I'm willing to try. Can you explain a little better what the isp person is asking you? From the screenshot I know the bottom section is your local connection and the top part is your WAN connection. If that helps any.

Hello. I have a question to ask you.

Can a user setup a static IP address before doing a port forwarding on a router when your ISP (a big cable company) uses and assigns me a dynamic IP address? I wish to have port forwarding for a VoIP telephone on my router. The router I am wishing to port forward is a Netgear WNR2000v2.

I always thought when your ISP uses dynamic IP address, you cannot setup anything with your home networking with a static IP address. Am I wrong? Please explain.

Please reply.

Thank you!

A:Can I Setup Static IP Address Before Doing Port Forwarding On Router?

The info that follows is not precise so that it can be concise.

For the purposes of this discussion, there are two sets of addresses:
Private and Public.

Your ISP assigns a public IP address to the public side of your router.

Your router assigns a private IP address to devices (computers/phones) in your home.

You can assign a static IP address to your phone or most any device on the private side of the router.

The public IP address that your ISP assigns to the public side of your router won't change very often - but when it does change - there are services that can track the change. And/or there are tools that will e-mail you each changed public IP address.
I'm not endorsing or suggesting that you use this service:
Managed DNS and Dynamic DNS - 100% DNS Uptime No-IP
The link is just the first example that I could find.
I would not download from this website:
Email My IP Free Download
The link is just the first example that I could find.

I've just got a wireless router, BT Voyager 2000, I have been following this guide http://www.portforward.com/help/pfprogression.htm slowly, due to my limited knowledge, I have got to the part where a static IP address must be set. I have followed this guide http://www.portforward.com/networking/static-xp.htm and firstly there was only one DNS Server and when clicking ok at the end it says "You entered an invalid subnet mask. The subnet mask has to be contiguous. Please enter a valid mask."
Any ideas.

A:Port Forwarding & Static IP Address

Read other 9 answers

OS: Windows XP SP2
DSL Router: Westell 6100
Wireless Router: Netgear WGR614 v6

After 2 hours on the phone with tech support last night, I finally got my connection back up. Now I am needing to forward a port or two on my routers, but due to the complicated nature of the setup, I have not figured out how to get it to work as of yet. I have already tried the (overly technical) explanation on portforward .com (http://portforward.com/help/doublerouterportforwarding.htm). But that is just a bit over my head as of now. The Netgear router is configured as a LAN ip, if that helps.

Any help is greatly appriciated!

I run a web server from my laptop, and my IP address (location) gets updated via DynDNS.org servers.

My notebook is always behind a NAT-configured LAN, and I have configured the router firewall to pass port 80 service requests to my IP (usually 192.168.x.2, where x is maybe 0 or 1 or whatever...I use NetSetMan for location based setting). Note: the DHCP server is configured to stay away from static addresses in the private LAN.

Most routers have their own port 80 service, the configuration interface, accessible by hosts inside the LAN.

I don't have a problem with port 80 service requests coming from the WAN getting passed to 192.168.x.2 host running the web server.

BUT, users in the 192.168.x subnet requesting service from within the LAN do NOT get delivered the web page from host 192.168.x.2, but instead the router's configuration interface, if they use the host NAME. Of course, if they use the host IP address, they get the content.

What is happening of course is that if anyone uses "http://mywebserverhostname.com/", it goes to DynDNS.org where the IP is resolved to the address a.b.c.d, the WAN IP address of the router I am currently connected to. So the http client bundles the packet to the destination a.b.c.d:80.

The users INSIDE the LAN get the router configuration interface web page when they type in a.b.c.d:80, but not users OUTSIDE the LAN (in that WAN).

What's the solution?

A:Passing Port 80 Service Request Through Router From WAN To LAN

Any chance this is a Belkin router? I had the same problem with my Belkin N450 Gigabit, not being able to use my DynDNS name, only the ip address (192.168.....). The Belkin died a few days ago when our power blipped two or three times in a row (I did not have the router on a battery backed up UPS plug, do now).

I replaced it with a Netgear 450 Gigabit router and the problem is gone. I can now connect using the DynDNS name (and Mooo.com name) again. So, bottom line is, it's probably your router causing the problem.

I went round and round with Belkin on this for over a month and finally just gave up. Made it difficult to test changes to the web server.

A:router not passing port scan after opening port

Have you tried a different port to see if that port is being blocked by your ISP?

I also see that your parsing TCP to UDP, probably doesn't make a difference to the port being open or closed but it might be better to set them both the same or set to Any.

Another problem you may encounter is your IP may change, most ISP's like to change your IP every so often so you may have to set up a DDNS with a hostname in order to access the services you want remotely.

I have been using an DSL Siemens speedstream 6520 router at home. I usually carry out some R&D by placing servers behind the router. I access the services on each of the servers from the ouside using port forwarding and it has been working fine for http, ftp, RDP, any user defined ports etc but in the case of port 25 SMTP its not working at all. I have checked the port on the local lan and I am able to telnet to that server but from the outside only on this port 25 I am not able to telnet. But If i were to change the SMTP port number from 25 to any other port like 24 or 26, I am able to telnet from the outide. Is there any way i can make SMTP port 25 to work and access the same from the outside.

Is it possible that port 25 has been blocked by your ISP? This is a pretty common thing for ISP's to do as a SPAM prevention measure.

As you can see, there are quite a few ISP's blocking port 25 on this list.

I have setup a Static IP address through Windows XP, and I am trying to forward ports to my Xbox 360 (to avoid Strict NAT settings). The problem right now is that I cannot access my routers set up page.

I am using a D-Link WBR-2310, which is not installed on the PC, but runs a password-protected wireless network. I have run IPconfig, and have obtained the IP address and Default Gateway. When I type either in my Web Browser (tried Firefox/IE) I am led to my DSL modem's setup page and not my wireless router.

I have tried every IP address possible (from the default router address to the IPconfig) and I cannot access my wireless router setup. Through the D-Link website, I have also tried to use an emulator, but I am unable to make any changed regarding Port Forwarding. Once again, my wireless router is not installed, and the installation is not working because "The router is not detected- Error 322"

I have been trying to solve this problem for the past 4 hours with no luck so I would appreciate any help! Thanks in advance

Hello all. I was talking on skype and lost internet connectivity while talking. I received the error above (Firewall Settings HTTP (port 80) HTTPS port 443 FTP port 21 error message). I am running a laptop with windows XP and IE 7 and my antivirus is AVG and I also have Ad-Aware.

I'm not much of a computer person but I did some research online and tried a few things: I turned off the option on skype's advanced settings for it to listen on Port 80 and then rebooted. I also ran a command, 'netstat -aon' and did not find a listing of 1270.0.1:80/443 or which seems to imply that nothing should be affecting port 80 or 443.

I also downloaded firefox and it cannot access the internet either. The only way I'm able to access the internet at the hotel I'm located at was to call the hotel's tech support and they had me go into the LAN settings of internet options and manually select port 8080.

Any more suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Well, this has me baffled. My Bell Internet Security Services Activation (I just installed it on a computer not used for some 4 or 5 months) popped up a window saying "Waiting for Internet connection"...and waiting and waiting. But my Netgear wireless connection to the router in the house indicates "very good" signal strength, which I thought meant I was connected. Obviously not!

I tried opening IE. "Internet Explorer cannot display the web page" (much as I expected)

Clicked the button which was showing on the IE cannot connect page "Diagnose connection problems" and followed the instructions. The final diagnostic is "Windows cannot connect to the internet using HTTP, HTTPS or FTP. This is probably caused by firewall settings on this computer. Check the firewall settings for the ports HTTP...etc." Where on this earth are they?!

I checked the Windows Firewall settings and found it "off (not recommended)" so I switched it on.

I re-ran the diagnostic on the IE page and nothing has changed.

My question is:

How do I check the settings for HTTP port (80) and HTTPS port (443) and FTP port (21)? Also what do I set them to?

Many thanks, in advance, for a solution to my problem!

So you just installed an Internet Security Suite which has a Firewall built-in and then you enabled XP' built-in firewall? I am baffled as to why you would do that. The new software you installed has to be blocking it somehow. I would search their website for known issues.

About two weeks ago the internet in the apartment started acting very poor. A day or so after that, it quit alltogether, with Windows saying it is a DNS server issue. I have reason to believe the IT guy for the apartment has NO idea what he's talking about, as he has told the landlord that it is probably too many wireless routers causing interference. This is not the case.

The symptoms are that, when connected to our wireless router windows says there is a DNS issue, and we do not have internet access. While plugged directly in to the wall the internet works perfectly fine.
My speculation is that whatever we are getting our internet from in the line is not allowing our router to assign IP addresses (or not handling them properly on its end), thus causing the DNS issue and the lack of internet.

Supposedly there are only about 4 apartments (out of 16) that are affected by this same problem, and I am the only person actively trying to fix this, as it is affecting my school work. I have limited access to the hardware of the building, but can get just about whatever I need for testing purposes through the landlord if I try hard enough.

If anyone has any ideas what this issue may be or how it may be resolved, please let me know. My schooling is kind of relying on it.

A:Static IP set-up/port forwarding

If the D-Link router has the IP reservation feature, where you tell it to always assign the same IP address to a specified MAC (Physical) address, that's a little nicer than using a static IP address. Else you want to use a static IP address to make sure it doesn't change.

1. I'm guessing you have the Embarq 660 modem/router and the D-Link cascaded, right? That means you have to port forward on the Embarq to the D-Link's WAN and port forward on the D-Link to the computer.

2. If you put the D-Link in the Embarq's DMZ that would save you a port forward and make things considerably simpler.

3. Or you could bridge the Embarq to use it as a modem only.

4. Or you could use the D-Link as an ethernet switch and wireless access point only (one of us will post JohnWill's recipe if you like).

I don't understand your question(s) on static IP, but think that part of the confusion may be the current need to do double port forwarding. Decide for sure which way you want to use the Embarq and D-Link and then the static IP questions should be fairly easy to handle.

A:Port Forwarding / Static IP

If you are hosting a server a static IP is a good thing, but if you aren't you are wasting your money. All you need to do in your router config is to port forward your internal IP address of 192.168.0.x to your WAN address for the ports that the game uses. Either that or the router does have a DMZ feature that you can put your PC on for the duration of your gaming and then remove it when you are done.

Warning multiple default gateways are intended to provide redundancy to a single network such as (intranet or the internet). They will not function properly when the gateways are on 2 seperate, disjoint networks such as one on the internet an one on the intranet. do you want to save this config

Can someone please help ! thanks :

A:Static IP / Port forward help please !

If you have the option associate your mac address with a specific ipaddress within the router. Without knowing more about your router it is hard to tell you how to do it but that is what you need to do.

I recently purchased a CCTV System and linked it to my LAN.
I use a Netgear DGN2200 Router and link from the CCTV DVR using Ethernet over the Socket Ring, (again using a Netgear product).

I want to access the DVR over the internet and seem to have used internet based advice and got confused.

Never done this before and appreciate any alignment of my wandering knowledge:

Q. Do I have to contact my ISP and pay for a Static IP? I am on BT Business Broadband and they say I need to pay 5pm to have a Static IP, but....... Portforward.com indicated that this is not necessary to set up a Static IP, and "watch your ISP doesn't try and sell you one ...."

Goto Step 4 of Portforward.com's instruction here http://portforward.com/networking/static-xp.htm and this is where I got a conflict with the guy at BT.

This is probably the key to my lack of experience.

I am not clear on whether the Router needs to be linked statically to the ISP or does my PC??? Portforward.com may have sent me on a tangent.

Appreciate any help, Simon.

Hi, all. First post. I'm running Vista HP. My roommate and I use a Motorola SBG900 wireless modem. I've been having some trouble with Bit Torrent lately and I thought it might be due to my SBG900 firewall. Long story short, I ended up wanting a static ip each for my roommate and myself. Portforward.com says I need a static ip to port forward and I desperately miss my Bit Torrent. I followed the directions on that site but to no avail. I simply have no internet connection once I complete the steps. Can anyone offer any advice? I'll gladly elaborate upon request. TY

In the custom policy enable all preset policies.Then add a new filter. Here you can enter all information for port forwarding.In Port ID enter any name like BitTorrentCheck EnableIn Protocol type choose UDP/TCPIn port range enter any random port you want to forward like 65535 (in both fields). You will have to enter the same port in your BitTorrent client.In protocol number enter any unused numberCheck both inbound / outbound.Click Apply.Warning : Opening a port for torrent clients leaves you vulnerable to hacking attacks. You should use a good software firewall and keep Windows updated.

Ok here is is my endeavor I am trying to be able to view my IP camera outside of my network.
It works great with in the confines of my local network. Here is what I have done, I did the port forward
on my router (PK 5000 Actiontec), I put the camera's ip address in for the port forward along with port 8080
To see if it works, I had entered my external ip address along with the colon and port numer, no luck.
I pinged my external ip address , that worked great.
Also I tried to access my camera out side of my network.
So my main question is there more to it then just doing the port forward.
I read somewhere that there needs to be a static IP address? whats that?
any info would be greatly appreciated.
Kind Regard

In my apartment I have a DSL account which plugs into my DSL
Modem/Router. I then have an 802.11b Router plugged into the DSL Modem/Router. I also have one static IP address from my DSL provider that is assigned to my DSL Modem/Router [i.e., Statis IP via DSL - - > DSL Router/Modem - - > 802.11 Router/Access Point - - > PC]

I would like to be able to access my home PC over the Internet via my static IP address. However, since my one static IP address is assigned to my DSL Modem/Router I assume I have to use Port Forwarding to reach my Home PC via this static IP address. But, I don't know if I should turn port forwarding on for the DSL Modem/Router, for the 802.11b Router/Access Point, or for both. Or maybe I should turn my either my DSL MOdem/Router into a bridge or my 802.11b Router into a bridge?

Any advice on how I should go about doing this would be very helpful. Also, what port should I forward if I just want to be able to log into a shared drive on my Home PC via Windows over the Internet oer maybe it would be better to set up an FTP server (any recommendations for FTP Server Shareware?)

By the way, I have never used Port Forwarding before so if anyone knows of a good web site that explains this as well as how to setup a good firewall please feel free to post it.

Thanks in advance.

I'm trying to forward some TCP ports for various reasons, and I was following a guide on portforward.com.
I'm behind a wired Netgear router with 2 computers, and this particular computer is connected in the secondary port.
I called my ISP to receive my 'true' DNS servers, and I have my subnet mask and gateway ip from 'ipconfig /all' in my cmd.
HOWEVER, the problem is that I get 3 different ip addresses on my 'ipconfig', my router configuration window, and according to my ISP.
I tried each one of them to get my static IP address, but I always get an error about it not matching with the gateway IP or the DNS server IP, and none of them seem to be able to open up any TCP ports.

A:Help Port Forwarding! Can't configure static ip!

Are you matching them up correctly (default gateway from ipconfig in the default gateway blank etc.)? Also, is the actual IP you are choosing for the static IP close to the router's IP (having only the last octet being different.)?

Hi, we had a CCTV set up for which I had to get a static ip and all was working well. Somethings happened and I don't seem to be able to view the cameras from my mobile or ipad etc anymore. It has been suggested that maybe the port forwarding is the issue; any help greatly appreciated.

A:Help with port forwarding CCTV on static ip

Hi Kacy60, and welcome to TSG.

Yes, a port forwarding problem could prevent devices on the Internet from connecting to devices on your network.

We would need to know a bit more details on the hardware involved and how it is all networked together.

For starters ....
1) What is the brand and model number of the modem/router for your Internet connection?

2) What is the brand and model number of the CCTV controller?

3) Does the CCTV controller connect directly to the Internet service provider's modem/router or does it go through another router? If another router is being used, what is the brand and model number?

4) Are you using a single static public IP address for both the CCTV system and for computer Internet access? You do not need to divulge the actual public IP Address(es)be ing used.

5) Assuming the CCTV controller has a local IP address on your internal network, is it a static address or does it get an address via DHCP?

Hi everyone, can you help!

I've been meaning to reconfigure my routers and computers to create static IPs and therefore allow port forwarding properly. I've tried and tried and I've failed can anyone help?

I've got the following...

Broadband modem
Linksys RT31P2 VOIP router
Linksys WRT54G router

I have two computers hardwired to the wrt54g and I also use two laptops which are used both at home and at work. I'd ideally like to create static IPs for the two hardwired computers and keep assigned IPs for the laptops.

Currently the modem plugs straight into the WAN on the VOIP router. LAN1 on the VOIP router is then connected to the WAN on the WRT54G. The two hardwired PCs are connected to the WRT54G LAN1 and LAN2.

To make things easy, both routers are reset to factory settings.

The VOIP router is set to...
dhcp enabled
DHCP range -

The WRT54G is set to...
dhcp enabled
DHCP range -

All computers (including the laptops) are set to automatic configuration.

Once I have assigned static IPs I then need to allow port forwarding for a few programs on one of the hardwired PCs.

I know how to do port forwarding on a one router system, but not on a chained system like this. I also get confused with what numbers should go where.

Can anyone please suggest exactly what numbers and settings I shou... Read more

A:creating a static ip and port forwarding with two routers

Sorry but you are confusing me. I will be be able to help ... but lets break down what you are trying to do.

My first question is why do u have 2x DHCP servers running? Statically assign the 2x desktop PCs with an IP address and then exclude those IP addresses from the DHCP scope. Alternatively you can reserve 2x IP addresses in the scope (MAC addresses required). TURN DHCP SERVER OFF ON ONE OF THE ROUTERS! 2x DHCP servers can cause all kinds of problems within a LAN. One scope is best and to keep it neat, set the address range between 192.168.x.100 - x.150 (if you decide to go with a class C subnet).

Why do you have both WAN ports in use? It sounds like you have created a loop! From one to the other ... makes no sense to me why you did that, in my head the topology looks wrong! You would be better off with a switch rather than 2x routers for reasons like a switch doesn't require an IP address and it is not a DHCP server. But it doesn't matter, we can either NAT between the two routers (which will slow down you internet speed a little) or we can put the VOIP router into bridge mode, give the Linksys all the ISP details and have him as the gateway. Bridge mode is the easier of the two, and won't slow down your internet speed (no NAT rules).

I hope this is making sense. Reply back and fill me in a little more and we'll go from there :grinthumb

I have a sticky situation with my 360 getting a successful "Open NAT" connection to the Internet. While it connects properly to the Internet, sessions with peers almost always time out.

The 360 is connected to a cable router of mine, a Linksys befsr41 v3 (which is live compatible). This router is then connected to my ISP modem/router, an Embarq modem (zyxel eq-660r)

I already know how to access and configure the hardware, but no matter how I set my ports via the port forward website for both devices, I still get a restricted NAT. this will really restrict how long I can stay connected to large groups. Neither Linksys nor Embarq could help me with my connection issue.

As for my local IPs...

Linksys befsr41:


Zyxel router/modem(also the DNS server everything points to):

If I'm not mistaken, then the ports live uses is 88 and 3074. I want a static IP address due to the number of devices on my network also using static addresses. Maybe one, both or none should use the network IP addresses. I've given up mostly on experiments. I can't figure it out. Thanks in advance for those that reply.

Since i had my PC build up i am experiencing noises when i connect any headphones or earphones into the front port of the PC. The specifications are:

GIGABYTE iSolo 210 Cabinet (has both HD and ac97 audio support, currently connected on HD audio)
GIGABYTE P55-USB3 Motherboard
nVidia GeForce GTX 460 (which is very close to audio port on mobo)
Intel i5 760 Processor
2GB Kingston RAM

Now, the wiring is pretty much good. No free wires lying around and extra wires are zip-tied and put in a corner. There is just 1 free wire that is the IEEE 1394 front port which has no header on the mobo, other than that all wires of the front ports are connected. I tried moving the wires around but no luck. I don't know what may be the reason for the noises but I can give a few details to help

- The noise starts when i watch movies
- At times there is no noise at all, i don't know but i suddenly goes off
- the noise increases when i scroll up or down a page using a mouse
- I have installed the latest drivers as well

Any help would be appreciated.

I've had my computer for around 2 years now and there hasn't been a single thing wrong with it. Suddenly today when I plugged in my headset, there was a really loud pop sound and when the jack was pushed all the way in, there is a static noise. After a couple of minutes the sound dies down and disappears, then comes back again in a random time period. The sound responds to when I scroll up and down a webpage. It responds slightly to all other imputs (ie moving the mouse, holding down keys on the keyboard). It does not respond to cpu load. When I utilize my graphics card under heavy load, the sound changes to a different static noise. So basically the noise responds to almost anything that is happening in the environment.

The noise does not scale with the pc volume. The noise is the same whether I have the volume to 100, 0, or mute.

The sound card is the onboard of my dfi infinity motherboard.

Only this port is affected, my speaker output and digital out are fine.

I did all the wiring for the usb, firewire, mic and headset myself and they are far from any source of static. Nothing has changed in my case; I havent even opened it in a month.

The only thing new at all was a vista update, but none of them affected my soundcard.

I dont think ill die if this issue is unresolved, but its just really annoying. Also its really puzzling.
