Dear Whiz kids,
I am connected to broadband via a Linksys router model Sd205 (El cheapo). I have been following instructions concerning port forwarding.
I have assigned my computer a static ip address and have attempted to access the router via these following instructions:
"2. Once the static IP address has been assigned please go to your desktop and double click on Internet Explorer (Located on the Start Menu in Windows XP)
3. Once "Internet Explorer" opens, please type http://192.168.1.1into
the "Address Bar" and click GO
4. The "Enter Network Password" window will appear. Skip user name and type admin (admin is the default password) as the password, and click OK.
5. This will bring up the routers "Setup" section. Look under "Domain Name" and check what version of the firmware you're using.
6. You will need to click on the Advanced tab to the very right. Once the "Advanced" tab comes up please go to the Forwarding tab."
When I use Explorer to go to http://192.168.1.1
it just takes me to Acoona Search Engine.
I have turned off my firewall.
I am stuck. I cannot play my beloved Starcraft until I sort this out. I am having Starcraft withdrawal symtoms.
Can anyone help?
