(c)which port do i use
the port for the box that was given from the ps.
and how do i find the ports and the ip addresses
i have been at this for two days now and now i am asking for some help and i thing you can help me any help will be great.
the ihub will have an internal ip address with a default gateway of your router.
port forwarding is what you want ot use, inbound and outbound ports should be the same.
you can plug the ihub into any port on the back of the router.
the ihub should get an ip address automaticly, jsut set it to dynamic or automatic or what ever setting it has on there. if it requires you to assign a static ip then use an ip that your other comps are not using. you can check your PC to see what your IP scmeme is.
go to start, run, (or search) type cmd, hit enter. in teh back window type ipconfig. you will get an ip address and a default gateway. the default gateway is the ip of the router, the ip address is close to what he ihub will have.
it will be 192.168.1.X X being the number you need to change. make it 15 or somthing high so its not getting taken by other devices. you can limit the ip's on teh router but id rather not get into that as it seems you are new to networking.
thank for the fllowup am going to try,the reviews of the router that what you mean .
