    I am wanting to make my old computer to a server, but it just won't work. I am using a D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G+ that is a wireless router, and I have 2 computers connected to it through wireless technology and 2 computers connected to it through a cable. It works fine to have a server on the other 3 computers, but other people can't connect to the server through my old computer. I have turned off the windows firewall, turned off the IEE 802.1x authentication and turned off my personal firewall on it. I have also port forwarded all the ports that are needed, but people still can't connect to the server. Any possible mistakes I have done?

    Some info:

    And yes, it works to ping eachother.
    Subnet Mask:
    Default Gateway:
    Server I am trying to run: HL2 and FTP.

    -Computer Specs-
    OS: Windows XP Professional
    Processor: P3 1.2GHz
    SDRAM: 382MB
    Graphic Card: GeForce FX Go5200

    That's about it. DMZ won't work neither...

    Thanks in advance guys.
