Hi Expert

Why when I tried to enable the Remote Web Management for DSL-G604T ( I am aware of security implication for doing that ) a message popped up saying :

  1. Invalid IP address 0.0.0.0


As in a snap shot below :

Your router allows you to limit the IP address(es) from which it will accept remote administrative connections, either to one IP address, a range of IP addresses, or any IP address. A very effective security mechanism assuming you actually know w/ certainty the IP address(es) from which you will be accessing the router.

If you want to limit connections to only one remote IP address (e.g., 209.125.62.9):

IP Address = 209.125.62.9
Netmask = 255.255.255.255

If you want to limit connections to a range of IP address (e.g., anything on the 209.125.62.x network):

IP Address = 209.125.62.0
Netmask = 255.255.255.0

If you’re willing to accept connections from ANY remote IP address:

IP Address = 0.0.0.0
Netmask = 0.0.0.0

NOTE: It’s possible some routers won’t accept 0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0, so try deleting both fields in that case. If it accepts it, it will probably accept connections from any remote IP address.

Although I am going to try what you have suggested in the quote above but I hope that won't contradict with the below quote from page 61 on the product manual in the link below :

Quote:
To enable remote management of the Router, select the Enabled radio button for either Remote Web or Remote Telnet Management and type the IP Address and Netmask of the remote network or system used for management. Click the Apply button to activate remote management from the chosen IP address. Be sure to save the new setting (see below). [/quote

That exactly what I read from the manual before posting. :D 

In fact, I was initially going to quote that passage and changed my mind thinking you probably read it already and didn't understand what it meant.
