I need some networking help here and as IM no guru , IM not sure what to do

Basically I have a laptop that I take with me when IM out of town

I used to leave my HOME desktop on and could enter my HOME IP into telnet and connect without a problem
I could do anything I needed

then I bought a wireless router

thats where the problem came in

when IM at home I can access my desktop using but obviously this doesnt work when Im away

so I noticed that the router ip address IS my old IP for the desktop

sooooo , what do I need to do to connect when im AWAY from the wireless network

I tried the old IP which is the router IP now and no good

IM certain there is a way to access my desktop

for now I have to unplug the router and plug my desktop in until I return

anyone have an idea?

maybe a port forwarding issue or something I could try?

Telnet = port 23 try forwarding that. If your port forwarding doesn't have Both under protocol you'll need to do 2 entries 1 for TCP and 1 for UDP. and make sure what the desktop's IP is.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif
