Hi,

I want to forward ports on my router to host a steam server. with no luck
My router has now static IP aswell as my pc -i tried diffrent types of settings for this static ip-

I have:
A cable connection
Modem motorola SB5101 connected to
Router D-link DIR-635 B3 firmware 2.34EU
Firewall/antivirus disabled before before test

made a DHCP reservation for my pc(theres only one on the lan with cable for now, i allso want to set it wireless after i figured out this set up)

Been lookin for a while to open ports now, but whitout any succes.
Any help would be most welcome...

hat HW version is your router?
What FW version is currently loaded?

Ensure DNS IP addresses are being filled in under Setup/Internet/Manual?
Turn off QoS options.
Turn off Advanced DNS Services if you have this option.
Turn on DNS Relay under Setup/Networking.
Setup DHCP reserved IP addresses for all devices ON the router.
Ensure devices are set to auto obtain an IP address.
Set Firewall settings to Endpoint Independent for TCP and UDP.

What wireless modes are you using?
Try single mode G or mixed G and N?
What security mode are you using? WEP, WPA or WPA2? Preferred is WPA2. Auto TPIK and AES.
What wireless devices do you have connected?
Any cordless house phones?
Any other WiFi routers in the area?

Turn off all anti virus and firewall programs on PC while testing.
Turn off all devices accept for one wired PC while testing.

You'll need to get the port information that "Steam" applications use to input into the Port Forwarding section of the router. Contact the Mfr of the Sw for this information.

 i put in the above settings and it worked wired.

and as for the wireless, windows sets up a wpa2 key auto when he detects the router so i disabled it and made a key from the router side, that did it  i guess

Its working now thanks alot
