looking for an ADSL router for a home webserver - currentlu using DG834GT
hello guys,

i am not sure about the terminology for what i am looking for - which is why i came here.

i have my old trusty ADSL modem working for many moons now without a glitch.

hardware is an old Netgear DG834GT using Linux firware from DGTeam:
V1.03.22 - DGTeam Rev. 1018.

but i have a nagging problem with it.
it passess all calls from the internet to my webserver correctly.
but when i look on the log of the webserver, the only IP that i can find for requests is the internal IP of my router.

is there a way to configure this router (linux iptables) so that i can have the actual IP/domain that is requesting webpages.
Or will i have to buy another router, and if what would be an alternative.

D-Link is perfect

Here is the link to the manual for your DG834G:

Here is a link on ADSLgeek about it:

I don't know anything about your third-party firmware, but most of the consumer CPE practically configures itself. I've configured my DSL router to allow web requests to one internal Linux box, and now the whole world attacks it 24/7! Standard NAT with port forwarding should allow you to publish a web site on one box, SSH in to another, etc., and you should see the IP addresses of the attackers in /var/log/secure, /var/log/audit/audit.log, and the Apache logs.

thanks for the response

but the ADSL is working fine.

but it is not sending the IP of the requester.
when looking at the logs the only thing i see is the router IP.

Kareem - which D-Link provides this functionality?

I am not expert in networks..I think your question is network-related rather than Linux-related so I suggest the following :
1-posting your problem in D-link forum
2-posting your problem in

I can upload some books about networking essentials and basics..
I wish I could have helped u
