Talk:NAT problem

Hi everybuggy.

i have a few comments. First, in the section Routers And NAT Enabled Broadband Modems, there appears to be a typo. i want to correct it, but don't know what the intended meaning is. In item 2, the second bullet reads

If your router supports MAC address binding, do so save/apply your changes, and skip down to the "Port Forwarding Through The Router" section.

The bit "...do so save/apply..." isn't grammatically correct and is confusing. it could be as simple as "...do so, save/apply..." but like i said, i don't know what was originally meant.

Second, i have added a sub-section called IP Forwarding Through the Broadband Modem. it details what i did to get green smiley faces after months of trying different things (and reading this page), so i think it is important. you might have further comments or refinements, but please keep something to its effect in the page, since that simple change has made a ten-fold increase in my download speed (and green smileys).

Third, i never did set up static IP addresses on my LAN, as described. i still use DHCP, though i do port-forward through my router to my dynamically assigned (but consistent) IP address. so i don't think static IP addressing is necessary.

Adding notes for Linux[edit]

I have some notes for linux based distributions. I wanted to explain how by default 'secure' linux requires the user open the ports using the iptables commands

iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 52565 -j ACCEPT iptables -I INPUT -p udp --dport 52565 -j ACCEPT

Give me that old time merciless editing to improve my contribution

refactoring this page[edit]

Who is reworking this page? I propose a structure whereby there is a general overview of the nat problem and then platform specific help

so the main headings are

  1 nat problem overview
  2 router configuration issues
  3 windows platforms
  4 mac platforms
  5 linux platforms
  6 other platforms
        a games consoles
        b mobile phones and wireless handhelds
  7 still not working?
