Belkin Router - Remote Access

Hi

Having real problems with a friend's setup...

I have setup his new F9 broadband connection and he can surf and pick-up mail etc., but I cannot access his router (Belkin F5D7632uk4) remotely, nor can I ping it.

His account has a static IP address, as does mine, and my Linksys 54G router presents no problems and I can ping successfully.

What am I missing here?

Thanks for any assistance.

Belkin Router - Remote Access

HI

Does the router have a built in firewall ?

If it does check the settings and as a temp measure disable it and try to remote it and then see what happens.

Regards

Hi Ian

Thanks for the reply!

Yes, it does have a firewall built-in and I have tried temporarily disabling it with no improvement.

I have also set-up port-forwarding, so I can access two network cameras installed there but cannot access those either.

I've set-up a number of routers (including Belkin models), but this particular model has me fooled!

Thanks

Further details...

I can connect to a pc off the router remotely, using UltraVNC (forwarded ports 5800 & 5900).

Skype also works fine.

I still cannot connect to any of the network cameras, though I have included their forwarded ports in the static IP string I'm typing in the browser.
