Hello, Can anyone help me? I recently switched to using a wirless network. the brand is called Blitzz, and now i cannot host counterstrike because it has a hardware firewall? im guessing and closes port 27015. can anyone tell me how to open that port or if another port is open or can be open thats i could use to host. it will not let anyone join my game sense that port is closed. Thanks for your help email me at Hooligan_12@hotmail.com for answers or just post here.

Most likely, your router comes with a firewall or port blocking. There are couple of things you can do.
1) go to http://192.168.1.1 or other ip that is the address of your router (documentation), set port forwarding for your game.
2) Usually, home router comes with a feature called DMZ, it basically make your computer transparent to the outside. This is a huge security liability, I don't recomment this at all.

Ummm... it's kind of hard for me to tell you since I don't use that router. Your manual should give you the basics. Here are couple of things you should look at:
1) Port range forwarding
2) Port triggering

Packet and Port Filtering is to block a PC inside your network from getting to the outside world on specific ports and/or IP address. So you could in ecsense block someone from getting to Google or block someone from accessing port 9999 for whatever reason.
I looked up a Blitzz model and looked at the instruction manual (Did you even do this?) and I couldn't find anything about a DMZ setting (which is the easiest way to do what you want) or port forwarding (which is another way). Specifically, you would want NAT support on your router.
Unless I have the wrong model number, which is highly possible since you failed to provide that crucial information, or your router will not forward incoming packets on specific ports to internal address.
I have a linksys wireless router and have no problems doing what you want to do at all.
The specs on the model I linked to above says nothing about IP Routing. However, the specs for this model says it does have IP Routing. Which is probably what you want. So if you called an automobile machanic and asked for help with your car, would you make him guess what Model of car you had?

BWA611 NetWave Base G4 is the correct model sorry for not posting it i know that be common sense seems im lacking it but what is NAT support? and thanks for the time and help you have given i knew no where else to turn so i searched for a message bord and fond this one. i am only 15 so i cannot take classes on computer courses or anything usefull like that. so everything i know is pretty much from reading boards and expieramenting.

is this nat support come on your router? maybe i should return the blitzz and buy your router. you recomend any websites for purchase?


BWA601 NetWave Base <<<<<or i'll maybe try and find this model.

I do see a DMZ function in the manual for that router. Can you give that a try? Don't use your pocket filter, it blocks internal user to access outside world. You might want to try using virtual server as well.

if i go into virtual server it has DMZ in there also. but when i use DMZ or Virtual Server do i give out my ip address or the ip it says its hosting from? because it says the lan ip even when i tried DMZ but maybe i didnt do it right
