How to configure Linksys?

Postby dividmark » Fri May 30, 2008 11:14 am

I have the above router which is connected to my two main PCs via ethernet cables. It is then connected to my PS3 using the wireless feature.

The problem is whenever I turn on/off or reset my PS3 the netowrk goes down and I have to wait 30 seconds or so for it to be recognized again and for the network to come back up.

Someone suggested trying to update my firmware. Thought I would ask here first before attempting anything.

You need to look for a setting called "port forwarding" or "virtual server" or something similar. Then you need to enter the port number, protocol type (5900 and TCP in your case) and the local IP of your work computer.

In order to connect you tell your VNC viewer to connect to the external IP of your work router (you can see it in the router setup or when you go to www.whatismyip.com from your work PC)
