Hello. My parents just bought a new home from countrywide. And countrywide is giving us free 3 months with rogers phone,cable and internet. After the internet was setup I wanted to portforward some ports. But it seems that whenever I enter my default gateway into the address it dosent load anything. Do I have to put my linksys router to be able to port forward. Or is there a way to port forward. Or I can only port forward if I have my router attach and working
If you are using a 3rd party router then the default gateway might be different. Check your manufacturer's website for information. If you use rogers home networking equipment, the gateway is 192.168.0.1. http://www.portforward.com is a great website with tips for most major manufacturers.
The Gateway was possibly deployed to you in Bridge mode. I'm assuming since this post is a week old that you have since had the issue resolved.
If not, call in to HiSpeed Technical Support and make sure that the Gateway is set to Gateway mode and not Bridge.
Thank you for the recos Netbug and dnavia!
