Followed Connection Setup Guide, but need assistance.


Recommended Posts

Hey, I was looking through the forums and I saw a thread that said not to use YouTube guides for settings, which I had done. So I followed the Connection Setup Guide, but I am still having a few problems and am not sure what to do.

Guide that I followed:


1. I followed the first step and my router is port forwarded, which the test confirmed. However, I have an X on the top half for bandwidth. I'm not sure what to do. Here is a screenshot in case you aren't sure what I am referring to.-----------------------FIXED-----------------------(I had to disable firewall in the router settings. I read a different post. Sorry for not searching but I still need the second problem resolved.)


2. How important is it to setup a static IP? I cannot find the range on my router screen. I have a Linksys WRT54G which I read has some issues but the link to the FAQ's no longer had the issue listed. So will it affect my speed much if I don't do this? I believe the worker who set up my router told me he set up a static IP when he first set up my internet but I would like to check? So where is this on my router settings?

Thanks in advance.

Bottom of the router, what version do you have? As for the speedtest fail, that's nothing new. Use an external site and mine the difference between b and B (speakeasy.net, dslreports, and speedtest.net are valid candidates).
