Hi


I just want to know how to use my equipmment better

What information does my DSL-502T modem require to connect to Vodafone other than username and Password

I put this my Username and Password in manually once, when I set up my Modem with the aid of the disk that the D-Link Modem came with . Is there a way to manually add this information?


How to I use port forwarding with this modem?




Thank you..

you need to type 10.1.1.1 in you address space and then it should be admin for name and admin for the password and then you can browse through the menus.

go here for port fowarding

Hi

I got this advice from your link to portforward.com

Click the Advanced link near the top of the page.

The menu on the left should change. In this new menu, click Port Forwarding.


But when I browse the Router I see no Port Forward on the Menu

Could this be a firmware issue with vodafone's D-Link 502t

It's called [something] Server if I remember.

And no, Vodafone supplied D-Links don't have changes - if you want, you can also upgrade your firmware.

I've had terrible problems trying to port forward on these routers, sometimes to the stage where I set them up and save, then a day later the configuration is gone.  I'd go and invest some $$ in a better brand router and save yourself the headaches.

Regarding DMZ, be careful as this is port forwards everything through to your computer.  You need to run a locked down firewall otherwise you open yourself up for all sorts of nasties.
