Unhappy Very Bad!!! Need Help Asap!! :)


Ok... this is my problem. I have my website up (kailuawireless.net). BUt, my website is being pointed to my Linksys Broadband Router.

Thus, I am getting a pop-up box asking for my username and password for my Router. So, I type in different things... it doesnt work... then I actually type in my username and password for my dsl router, and it works.

As you can see (www.kailuawireless.net) , anyone can access my router. How would I be able to get this to re-route to another directory? I believe the router firewall rules are directing the website to the router. I have WEP enabled, like everyone should have if they have a wireless network.

I also have apache installed.

Now, how do I change the router firewall permissions to allow from certain ports? Also, which ports are generally for the publics viewing (ie 80, 8080, 8000)? I forget.

I have this option to allow certain ports open. This next text is from my help guide in Linksys DSL Router.


----START-----Linksys Broadband Router (WRT54G)--------
Filtered Internet Port Range


To filter PCs by network port number, select Both, TCP, or UDP, depending on which protocols you want to filter. Then enter the port numbers you want to filter into the port number fields. PCs connected to the Router will no longer be able to access any port number listed here. To disable a filter, select Disable.

----END--------Linksys Broadband Router (WRT54G)--------

Please help me get this resolved.

Thank you,
Ivan

Got a linksys myself though not the same as yours:

Is there not an option in it for port forwarding?

i.e port 80 then IP address of machine running website if you open that up you won't get to the routers admin thing using externel IP

Port filtering is used to block access to ports from your machines on your network - sort of the reverse of what you want to do.



Any one that tries my ip will get my router logon dialogs as I am not running a website here - gave myself a super-dooper long and good mix of numbers/characters password just to be sure.

Give yourself a really good password

corrected - myself

I found out what I need. I needed to change to dyndns.org

They work good with Linksys. Linksys will recognize them.

Thanks for your help.

In the future may I remind you to make better and more helpful thread titles. And try to refrain from asking for help, asap or urgency in your title, it comes off as being rude and demanding, when members on this site come here in their own free time to help others out. It might be urgent for you, but please be kind and considerate to the many who help out here for free and in their own time.
