cant save port forward settings on router

Okay first thing is:

1) Hit start at the bottom left corner of your screen, then click run. In the run box enter CMD then push enter. A flashing cursor will appear.

Now type: ipconfig
and push enter

Look for the bolded details below:

Quote
Windows IP Configuration

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.1.1.7


Copy the numbers down that appear on your screen, as you can see above I would copy down 10.1.1.7. This is the "Host IP Address" that is required for port forwarding setup.

2) Now look at your manual specifically at the details in this heading:

6.1 Advanced Configuration - Port Forwarding

ID: 4 (or whatever is the next ID number in the list)
Ext. Port: 3333 (change to what you want)
Private Port: 3333 (change to what you want)
Port Type: select TCP or UDP (if unsure do one for UDP and one for TCP, just enter all the details twice so you have an ID 4 and an ID 5, one for UDP and one for TCP)
Host IP Address: 10.1.1.7 (as step 1 mentions)

Now hit submit at the end of the line.

3) Now go to the section in your manual labelled:

9.1 Save and Reboot

Click the Save and Reboot button.

Once the router has been rebooted go back to "advanced configuration" then "port forwarding" and ensure that the lines have been added correctly.

Goodluck!
