port forwarding on Belkin 4-port Cable/DSL Gateway Router


Hi all,

I have a Belkin 4-port Cable/DSL Gateway router.
I would like to forward some ports on it (for skype - it gets cut off
every 2 minutes - it's unbearable
I use DHCP, if I type the address of the router, I get
a basic screen with the router settings however,
the only thing that is related to firewalls is:

Quote:
firewall: enabled
The only option here is: enabled/disabled

What am I supposed to do?
I've got Debian Etch and Fedora Core 6
PS. Obviously the cd that it was shipped with contains Windows software
Thank you

thanks,
the problem is that I chose my router, and then I chose the program (i.e skype) but
this website directs me to the default router address: 192.168.2.1, which I already know, but when I type this address, I don't get the same screen. I don't get options like:
DMZ, Wan ping blocking, etc. I only have a basic screen with a few options.
My guess is that that's how the screen would look like (with full list of options) after installing the software for the router (windows). I don't know - that's just my guess.
If I had all those options that are shown in that portforward.com tutorial, I would
know what to do

Don't know what to do now


That's what I get when I enter the router's address:

ok, I connected a laptop which has WinXP on it, and the screen was ok with all
the options. So it was a question of Iceweasel not showing the router page correctly
thanks
