Router Configuration (2 Routers)
Posted on 2006-05-16
This is a bit long, but I'm trying to provide you with as much information as I can.
I recently went to BT Broadband. The difference between my old ISP and BT is my old ISP used a cable modem and BT uses an ADSL router.
I have the following routers:
BT Voyager 210 ADSL Router
Sitecom Wireless Broadband Router WL-106
My set up is like this:
Phoneline --- Voyager 210 --- WL-106 --- Computers (1 wired, rest are wireless)
The IP addresses are:
Voyager 210: 192.168.1.1
Computers: range(192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0.X) 'X would be replaced with a different number for each PC
I have internet access from all of my computers and I am able to access the configuration of both routers from any computer. So I know that the connection is working properly.
The problem I have is I want to be able to host a game for me and some friends. When I had a cable modem with my last ISP I configured a virtual server on the WL-106 router to forward the connection to my game server. Now that I have the Voyager 210 my friends are no longer able to connect to my server.
The only thing I could think of was that I need to also configure a virtual server on the Voyager 210. But I tried to do this and got nowhere as Im not sure where to forward the connection from the Voyager 210.
I tried to forward it from the Voyager 210 to the WL-106 () thinking that the WL-106 would then forward it to the game server. But it didn't seem to work. Then I tried to forward it straight from the Voyager 210 to the game server. But that didn't seem to work either.
The game server is running a firewall.
BUT I have disabled the firewall while trying to connect and still nothing...
Can anyone help?
Thanks In Advance
