You are only allowed to use port forwarding to virtual servers. In your case I imaging you want to forward tcp 1 to 1023 to the internal host on 1 to 1023 as well.
BTW, this is one of the most annoying trends. ATT Uverse does this also... the modems they ship now do almost the exact same thing while leaving a high port listening for signals from ATT for whatever they use it for.
If your Cisco router has a 5ghz frequency it should also have a 2.4ghz frequency which would support a higher speed for older devices. I recommend connecting to that frequency and your speed should be higher and your encryption should be tkip/aes. You also received a recommendation to upgrade to windows 7 which I also endorse.
I have a really technical issue hear if anyone can assist please. I recently got an Arris tg1672 wifi modem from our ISP which is also being used for IP TV, so the modem cannot be bridged or else I will lose the IP TV feed. However I have a router that had configurations for a VPN and surveillance cameras that I used with the previous modem. Is there any way that I can connect the router to the modem and access my VPN and cameras from the router without putting the modem in bridged mode?
I am new to the edgerouter and I know zero CLI which is hurting me quite a bit right now because I do not understand most of this, so here goes.
I am running an Edgerouter ERLite running 1.6.0 FW and I have 2 modems from the cable company each putting out 50X5 dynamic plugged into eth0 and eth1. eth2 is the lan at 10.0.0.1/8. I ran the load balance wizard and I am online, but only through eth0. eth1 is only running a couple of kbps if at all. I did set up load balance and failover on PFSense a while back and loved it, but that was strictly through a gui and I followed youtube step by step, so I didnt understand much of that either, but I follow directions well! The problem I have here is that all the directions on youtube are using CLI and for some reason if I try to set it up that way it errors out and I have to reset and start over. Is it because my dynamic IPs are in the same subnet xx.xx.195.239/20 and xx.xx.194.60/20 where the x's are the same or is it that I have to add firewall rules after running the wizard or is there another step I missed?? Please help or point me in the direction of step by step directions. I appreciate anyones help, Thanks.
Not worried about it. The computer has nothing vitally important. I have backups. And the protection I have on it has served me well. If something happens then maybe, I might think about doing something new. Right now funds are tight and until they're not, this is what I have.
I think the real question here is: Why are you connecting to the internet with a Win XP computer? Do you like playing with fire?
XP is no longer supported by Microsoft and it no longer gets any security updates or patches. I would not recommend that you continue to use it to connect to the internet. For an older computer, you could replace it with a lightweight Linux distribution, like Lubuntu, which will be new, fast and secure, and free!
You can try an 802.11n card and see if that helps. The one you provided the link to does support 802.11n, but you may need a driver for XP, and since XP is no longer supported by Microsoft, you may only get 802.11g/b speeds (no better than you get now). My advice would be to upgrade your OS to Win7 at least, unless the card has an XP driver that supports 802.11n as well.
I tried it connected directly to the router and got 16Mb/s down. A little bit faster then it's suppose to be.
When I tried the wireless it hit about 10.5Mb/s down. That was closer to the transmitter (-35dBm) vs me sitting in my chair (-47dBm). But I was getting 9Mb/s down then. That's the fastest I've seen it go.
The last fastest was a bit over 7, but mostly sticks between 5 and 6Mb/s.
If you are running WiFi 802.11b (probably) then you are getting about the max your wireless can provide (between 1 and 11 mbps), depending upon signal strength and distance from the access point.
According to the Dell user docs, the specs say that it should be able to support 802.11g (still 2.4GHz) which should provide up to 54mbps data rates, but I'm not sure your XP driver would support that. It also depends upon the access point.
Is there a significant distance between your laptop's physical location and your wife's one? The signal gets weaker the further you are .. also, try with a cable as suggested, if the cable doesn't provide more than what your wifi has then it could the issue with the card
Recently our cable provider boosted the internet speed to 15Mb/s down and 2Mb/s up. My son is connected to a desktop through the Cisco router and gets the stated speed. My wife has a newer Dell laptop and she also gets the stated speed.
My laptop is much older. I have a Dell Inspiron 9400 running WinXP and it has a WLAN 1390 card that doesn't have 5GHz capabilities.
The fastest speed I have been able to get out of the wirless card is 7Mb/s down and 2Mb/s up.
Is this the limitation of my 1390 mini card or is something else going on here.
