    hello everyone, i have been having a problem with my router where i can only get limited internet. First off, my modem is fine i have been using the internet just thought my modem and everything has been working fine. but i have decided to try to fix my router to use the wireless internet to hook up my nintendo WII. alright so when i try to connect my router using an ethernet cable to my computer i can only get limited internet. what i mean is i can get internet using some programs but not others. If i try to use AIM or internet explore i get nothing but if i try to use programs such as STEAM or Xfire. i can get internet and talk to my friends i play games with. has anyone else had this problem? i believe some ports are being blocked and i need to config something in my router i just dont know what. can anyone help me out?

    Let's try a bog standard wired connection first, then move to the wireless connection.

    Reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button down for 15 seconds with power on.

    • Turn off everything, the modem, router, computer.
    • Connect the modem to the router's WAN/Internet port.
    • Connect the computer to one of the router's LAN/Network ports.
    • Turn on the modem, wait for a steady connect light.
    • Turn on the router, wait for two minutes.
    • Boot the computer.

    When the computer is completely booted, let's see this.

    Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

    Type the following command:


    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
