It's downstairs, and so is the router. The cord goes through the wall and upstairs into my room :) No wireless. I'm obviously not on a laptop.
" @seriousface: Are your router and your modem on different continents or something? What's hard about unplugging a cable and plugging it in somewhere else? You can waste time fiddling with your router until you get so frustrated you end up setting it on fire, or you can spend 30 seconds verifying that the router is the problem in the first place. E: Just realized you're probably on wireless in a remote part of the house or something, so sorry if I sounded rude. Still, this is going to be the most effective thing you could try, so you really ought to try to figure out a way to do it. "
Cool. I'll try that tomorrow (its 11:30 pm atm). Dammit, hoped that I could avoid moving my computer, it's kind of heavy :P I will report back when I've done that
" @seriousface: Plug your computer straight into the modem. Then you're going to have to figure out how to log into the modem's administrative interface. Usually there's instructions on the bottom of the modem. You want to find a setting that passes the signal straight through to your router - usually it's called "bridge mode" or something similar. Once you check that off, you should be good to go. "
" @seriousface: Is there no way to do it with that existing cable? "
" @Helushune: DMZ wouldn't work because the port's blocked at the modem, not the router. "
" @Helushune well you can actualy double port forward your ports "Madness, sir. Absolute madness. Well, hopefully we can figure out a solution.
