    syco,

    When you enter a port forward it is done for a port # to a specific IP address on your LAN side (where your server is). If you are using DHCP and have cycled power on your router then chances are that your server is getting a different IP address. There are a couple of things you can do but the most straight forward would be this:

    Default DCHP address range on a Linksys Wireless G router is 192.168.0.10 thru 192.168.0.254. So, assign your server an address of that is above 1 but below 10 (2-9). You do this on the server, not on the router. make sure you enter the routers IP address as the Default gateway and DNS server.

    Next, on the router, re-enter all of your port forwarding ports to the IP address you have given your server.

    Make sure you save your changes and you may have to restart your router for changes to take effect.

    Good luck!

    it did work before all i did was entered the port forward numbers in and it was fine, what i have noticed is the server adress (in game) when i go to host shows as 192.168.1.102
    but on my router port forwarding settings it shows 192.168.1.100 ,and 192.168.1.101, not 102 on the end of any of them?? i have tried to change it to a 102 but it always goes bakc to 101... but i havent tried powering donw the router after making changes i will try that in a few minuets. thanks guys.... does it matter if dmz is enabled?? oh and i do have a static ip adress.... should that be in the ip for the server (in game)?? im assuming the 192.168.1.100/ or 101,or 102v should work provided that the ports are forwarded to that ip.

    syco,

    You could try reseting the router to factory defaults and reconfigure it from scratch. What is the model of your Linksys.
