Hi,
I have a UT Starcom-300R2U and a Netgear WGR614 v6 wireless router. Earlier I had added my laptop in the DMZ(dematirialized zone) of the UT 300R2U, as I could not find any port forwarding options in it.
Now after setting up Wifi(I connect to internet via Netgear Router), I am unbale to do any port forwarding. I tried the portforwarding option, in the Netgear console but then internet completely stopped.
I use uTorrent to upload/download torrent, and hence I am in need of the correct way to configure both UT 300R2U and Netgear.

Here is what I did:
1. Gave a static Ip to my computer.
2. Added the same in port-forwarding part of Netgear as per instructions from www.portforwarding.com.
3. Netgear's Ip is 192.168.0.1.
4. UT 300R2U IP is 192.168.1.1.
5. Unable to access internet from laptop.

Kindly provide suggestions for my problem.

Thx,
Kirty :unsure:

To understand all this, here I have to ask, what is the topology of your network? i.e. how have you connected your router and computers? For exampe, you could have something like this:


-->DSL(phone line) ----> Modem -----> Router ------> [your LAN computers]



So, is the above what you have? If not, could you please describe your setup?

1. Gave a static Ip to my computer. - Its 192.168.0.4

2. I am using the setup as given in the figure by you. I am connecting one desktop via LAN port in Netgear and a Laptop via wi-fi transmission.

I am able to browse, but torrent does not work neither in desktop or laptop.

Please help me out.

Okay. You must understand that in the topology I showed above you have two networks. One is the between your modem and the router and the second one is between your router and your computers.

Your ModemRouter network is on the address 192.168.1.xyz. Your RouterComputers network appears to be 192.168.0.xyz.

From this, I would suggest that:
1. Put your modem in bridge mode. You may have to connect to the modem directory with your computer to do this configuration.
2. Then connect the modem to the WAN port of your Netgear router.
3. From a computer connected to a LAN port of your Netgear router, configure your router to connect to BSNL using a PPPoE connection. Give your BSNL username and password.
4. From the router's configuration page, try to establish the BSNL connection.
5. From the router's status page, confirm that BSNL connection is established. If it shows disconnected, then confirm again that your modem is in bridge mode (kind of 'repeat Step 1 above') and try the above steps again till you have a connection.
6. When your router shows that it is connected, try to browse the internet via your computer connected to the router. If it is working then all is fine.
7. Finally, forward the ports in your router as described in the web page you mentioned earlier. It should work. Oh, also make sure that if you have a firewall in your computer, it is allowing the activity at those ports.

Good Luck.

Hi BSNLUSER,
Thanks for your help. I will try them out today evening @ my house.
Well I was surfing about the port forwarding, I saw a quick method in which we have to do the following steps @ this link:

http://www.velocityreviews.com/forums/t310...wo-routers.html

I had earlier once tried to configure my PC thorugh Bridge mode in UT300R2U, but I was unable to create the dialer. See if you could throw some light one that.

Regds,
Kirty

In the method I described earlier, you do not configure your PC in bridge mode! You must configure your "modem" to be in bridge mode. The steps to do this are described on this web page:

We have two options in bridge mode for ut300r2u connection, one having LLC and the other Vc Mux. Presently i have choosen LLC. But what is the difference between these two, and do you anyway where i can increase the speed of broadband, by some tweaks(not by caching softwares).

No idea, your best option probably is to search google for this.

NO idea here either. You see, I am not much of a Windows guy (I assume you are using Windows). Again, google could be your best bet.

Try these (listed in the order of preference):
1. Ubuntu (the current version is Edgy): http://www.ubuntu.com/
2. Fedora Core 6 (you tried RH9.0?? That's way *too* old): http://fedora.redhat.com/
3. Debian (Etch version, also called Testing version) using the net install CD for your processor: http://www.us.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/

I think you will be happy with Ubuntu. My brother installed it on the PC we use for BSNL connection, it has an AMD64 processor. I have a friend who installed it on a Pentium based motherboard which has a SATA drive. In both cases, the installation went smoothly. Try it, you will love it.

The others are just in case you wanted to try alternatives.

Good luck.

jackrabbit, i'll reply to ur email here itself.

VC/Mux or LLC doesnt matter..u can chose either and it wont affect u in any way.

There is currently no way to increase the speed of a DSL connection. U will only get the speed u are synced at.

As far as torrents are concerned, forwarding the listening port of the torrent client to the WAN should be enuff. Torrents depend on seeders and if u want higher speeds use private trackers.
