How To Port-Forward With a Linksys Router (WinXP Vers 1.2)
1.) Find your "Gateway" Ip. This can be done many ways, in this guide I was describe one.
2.) Start > Run > Type "CMD" (without qoutes) and hit enter > Command prompt will come up (black screen)>Type "ipconfig" (without qoutes) and hit enter.
3.) Now open up Internet Explorer (IE for short) and in the address bar
type your gateway IP.
4.) Hit enter and you should get a password prompt.
5.) Now depending on who has messed with your router before there is a
default password. Many including the most common "admin" or "admn" if
you try either and no luck, then reset your router. There is a small button
on the back that says "RESET", press and hold for 45 seconds.
6.) Now you should be at the "Setup" page, Depending on the
firmware version your page my look different from mine.
7.) Now choose "Advanced" tab, this will bring us to more advanced features of the router.
8.) Now in the "Forwarding" tab, see the picture below on port numbers ect.
9.) Now depending on your LAN IP (see first figure to determan your LAN IP.) Just use the picture to help you figure out the ports.
10.) Hit "Apply" at the bottom and your done!
11.) Now enjoy faster speeds!!!
