You probably have to create a new one, BZFlag is not popular enough to be there automatically.

Can't access router.

Post by optic delusion » Wed May 17, 2006 5:19 pm

He's using windows me, and a usrobotics 8550 router.
He types things like this into his browser.
192.168.1.1
192.168.1.46
192.168.62.1
But he's not getting any response from these... I'm stumped.

Here's my next question.. Is it a laptop, and are you using wireless connection?
Try 192.168.1.2

You can get your LAN-IP by doubleclicking on the network symbol in the taskbar.

On the part near to "general" (i guess) is the IP your your Router and your Computer.

What kind of router?

For a Westell Versalink 327w (comes w/ verizon dsl. crappy but free) open up 192.168.1.1 in your favorite web browser, and you go to configuration->services and click on define custom service. Select a port range. Once defined, it shows up in your options. Select it and tell it what computer on your network to send the ports to. Done.

What I'm saying, is that the address specified on the portforward.com page, which is not clear, could be 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.62.1 , is not working for him when he punches it up on his browser.
At least thats what he told me.

The standard address you use to get to your router is:
http://192.168.1.1/

However, it can also be anything from:
http://192.168.1.2/ - http://192.168.1.255/

The third number of the LAN IP can also be changed, but that's not too common on home networks.

that means you are the second computer on your local network..
you may need to move closer to your router
