I have a Netgear MBR624GU router at IP address that I need to have all traffic routed to When I set it up based on the instructions I have and enter into any browser I get a timeout error instead of the webpage at what am I doing wrong? Before anyone says to try it from another computer, I am not that stupid not to have tried that a long time ago. If you want to look at what I have setup go to Username: admin Password: password and have a look. I am looking for an educational fix so please tell me how and why to do things. Thanks

Go into Wan Setup then change the DMZ Server to the PC you want all traffic directed to.
Also - Disable Remote Management and change the password of the router - While your at it remove the IP / Port from your post. We _do not_ need access to your router, remember - this is the Internet and you don't know who you are going to get.

Another way is to go into Services and add a port forward to the required service on the computer. Follow the directions on to achieve this.

But _Right Now_ close off remote access, change the password of the router, and edit your post above to show this, you should _Never_ post such info on public forums, this is very dangerous since there are Botnet Worms out there looking for open routers like yours (Read about Psyb0t at )

Another thing to check is if your ISP is blocking the service your attempting to set up, remember Google is your friend, and so is the helpdesk at your ISP.

Btw, welcome to Geekzone.

MichealMurfy, if you had looked at my settings in the router that I left open to all, you would have seen that I had already setup a dmz and port forwarding. so look at it and find my misstakes first before telling me to shut it down.
