Hi,

I'm having a HARD time configuring a linksys router to make a web server (IIS

using port 80) that sits on my PC (behind the router) accessible to the outside

world.

Here's the network hardware bits:
subscribing to Cox communication's highspeed internet service, wiring look like
cable <--> cable modem <--> linksys router <--> pc
status: normal internet activity is just fine; web server is running fine

(internal testing is fine).
firmware verision 1.30.01 (upgrade via the firmware's feature failed).

Disabled all firewalls that I could find on the PC. Then, with the firmware --

configuration,
In the Setup tab
----------------
(basic setup)
a) obtaining IP dynamically
b) router ip (local ip address): 192.168.5.1
c) network address settings (dhcp)
local dhcp server enabled
start ip address: 192.168.5.1 (?)
number of addresses: 110 (default 50)
dns 1: (I entered the primary dns from cox)
dns 2: (I entered the alternative dns from cox)
(advanced routing)
NAT enabled
dynamic routing disabled

Then, attempted the following:
1. enabled DMZ for 192.168.15.x (the PC's IP)
Outcome: did not work.
2. enabled port forwarding under the Application & Gaming tab,
application start end protocol enabled
webserver 80 80 both checked
Outcome: did not work
3. tried the above 1 and 2.
Outcome: did not work
4. tried the QoS (fine tuning?)
enabled http 80, still did not help.

Linksys technies tried to help but to no avail (part of the above is their

suggestion), what else could I try? What could be the culprit?

Many thanks.

let's see...

Model and HW revision of the router? never mind, Linksys RT31P2 Vonage VOIP router (you might have mentioned the Vonage part....) Only Vonage can update that firmware, through a push mechanism.

start IP address= 100
number of addresses= 50 (unless you really have 110 client PCs behind the router???)

Do you need MAC cloning? I never have for Cox.

DMZ: off

Make sure that the HTTP server has a static IP of 192.168.15.5.

The port forwarding looks correct.

Shouldn't need QOS in normal circumstances.

Are you running DynDNS from the router? if so, I suggest turning it off and using the DynDNS client on the server PC.
Otherwise, you'll need a static external IP or know what your dynamic address at the moment you are testing (http://www.myipaddress.com/ is quite useful).
