    Hi everyone :)

    I've been trying to nut this out for a few days now and i still can't solve it so i thought i'd turn to a group that could help hehe

    This is our networking setup:
    Networking: Phone line > D-link 502T Modem/Router > Blue ethernet cable > Netgear Wireless WGR614v7 Router > Ethernet to Desktop and wireless to notebook

    d-link ip is
    Netgear is and also
    My notebook

    Internet is fine (being that i could post here is tell enough hehe)
    I need to forward some ports and i think i'm doing it right but ALL ports i try are always blocked :(

    What i tried doing was forwarding port 50353 on the dlink to ip
    So in theory (my one anyway haha) was that if port 50353 was used on the notebook or desktop that it would be allowed through the netgear to the dlink and onward to the www

    But it seems i was wrong lol

    I don't understand :'( This is the first time i've had "routers" previously i used a DSE basic modem (no router) and a netgear fs108 which was plug n play, i never had to forward anything.
    The most i had to do was allow it in the various firewalls win xp etc

    I would much appreicate help on this and how to get it working through both.
    I have read alot of pages mentioning bridges etc but i'm not sure how to implement them, i find the bridge pages but i'm not sure what exactly it's asking of me.

    Again, thanks for any help :)

    Port forwarding is used for the other direction, to allow packets from the internet to get through to a computer. Are you really having outgoing messages blocked?

    In your example if I send something to your public IP and port 50353 the D-Link will forward it to the Netgear router.

    apparently the netgear was still operating as a dhcp server so everything was getting rather confused, i had a friend turn up today and managed to get it fixed for me :D

    Thanks for the help, i appreciate it :)
