    I have been trying all week to run a dedicated server through my
    router, the D-Link DSL-G604T with no success.
    When I use a Speedtouch modem it works fine but not through the router.

    I run windows XP SP2 and have configured this to have a static IP.

    I can join a game on the internet but I cannot host one.
    I have tried the virtual server settings , when this didn't work I
    enabled DMZ for my IP I even disabled the firewall on the router and
    still no luck.

    Has anyone been able to host games through this router ?
    I should mention that I have the same problem with another game I
    tried, Call Of Duty. This also works if I just use my old broadband
    modem.

    Aye that helpline was good fun. I went through everything I had done
    and how my router was currently configured. The conversation was
    roughly as follows but with long periods of silence added in after my
    lines:

    Me. Explaining my current set-up.

    Helpline. Have you made sure you have all the ports opened for the
    particular game?

    Me. Yes I have visited various Doom 3 sites just to double check the
    ports.

    Helpline. You could enable DMZ for your PC'

    Me. I have tried that before, it doesn't make any difference.

    Helpline. Make sure you do have the correct ports

    Me. I am sure they are Ok, should I be doing anything else apart from
    the ports settings in virtual server, what about the filters.

    Helpline. err um er um etc etc.

    Me. I'll try that DMZ thing again and ring back if it doesn't work.

    Helpline. OK

    Click

    So no surprises that the D-link helpline is similar to the BT helpline
    or indeed most others. No help whatsoever.

    Ah, but the subtle difference is that with BT one can usually get what's
    needed by ringing back immediately and speaking to someone else :)

    Whereabouts are you, geographically (I'm in East Hampshire)? If you're
    interested I could possibly pop over and help out for a fixed fee.
    Alternatively if you're far away we could give remote access a try.


    Cheers

    Ahh Adam, as you can see I'm still trying, although it was Call Of Duty
    last time, which still doesn't work.

    I'm in the Highlands I'm afraid, and it's not such an important task as
    for me to pay for it to be resolved anyway :)

    I can host with my modem but it's just bugging me that I can't get the
    router to do it.

    Maybe I'll see you again on the next ng I try :)

    Blimey, BT bothered to get off their backsides and give you broadband that
    far up? ;-)

    You could always send the unit back as faulty and get a refund to go
    towards a functional unit!

    uk.routers.cant-work.dont-work maybe!
