I got a question...im sure its rediculous...but help me out!
I just got a new Linksys 2.4 GHz wireless router...and I just hooked all the cables up and ive got an internet connection...great!
BUT...i cant use any of my P2P programs, cant accept UDP or TCP packets...im sure this is caused by my new router firewall...how can i set it up to accept these??? or set it up be able to use my P2P programs..."disable the firewall" if you will...

gotta go to your p2p program and figure out which ports are being used, then you need to go into your router properties and click advanced, and then open those ports (same thing will apply with playing online games.)

When I goto my router config...I can choose a "Filter" tab and in that section I have the option to "Filter Private Port Range (0 to 65535)" ...
then it gives you a numbered list 1-5....assumingly each port.
then option of either TCP/UDP/BOTH...
then it gives you a text field than "~" and another text field?
On port 1 or NUMBER 1, i put "0 to 65535" and at such time, i chose apply and after it set up again...I was unable to get online...or connect to the internet??
what am i doing wrong?

what model you have? seems like you are using a BEFW11S4 and with that model you shouldn't have to open individual ports...

...so how come I am unable to accept UDP / TCP packets?

those routers have a feature that allows you to open one PC on your LAN completely, i.e., bypass the firewall.

its called dmz. but the linksys dmz doesnt work that well

I'm sure for your house you don't need a dmz... i keep that at 0. Unless you know what your doing...
anyway... do you have enabled multicast? think its in first page of setup maybe in advanced... bunch of radio buttons at bottom.

Multicast is enabled...
How would I config the DMZ?? Whats it for?
