    This guide is for...
    - Those without a dedicated router
    - Those who turned their Zyxel modem into a router
    - Those who have programs/games that support UPnP, at tinatamad kayong magforward ng ports

    Based from the Zyxel P-660R-D1 Manual (chapter 10 specifically), with a few addons + screenshots, hehe.

    For Windows XP SP2 only. *Might* work on Vista and others if you change a few things.

    UPnP = Universal Plug and Play. Lets you connect devices to a network and have it autoconfigure itself, in the same way you attach a mouse to your computer and it simply works.

    To make things simple, UPnP lets us do automatic port forwarding. The Zyxel modem/router supports UPnP. This will only work if you have programs capable of UPnP. It is also a security risk. If you're uncomfortable with that, do manual port forwarding instead.

    This guide was tested on a single computer directly connected to the modem.

    1. Stop all Internet activity (downloads, surfing, etc.) and turn off any software firewalls and antivirus programs.

    2. If you haven't done so already, change to a static IP and turn the modem into a router. You'll see 4 lights on the modem if you've done it right.

    3. Start - Settings - Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Services. Set SSDP Discovery Service to Manual (if you disabled it).

    Q: Why not enable also the Universal Plug and Play Device Host service? Me UPnP naman sa pangalan diba?
    A: I have this service disabled and everything works fine. Hula ko this is used for XP's ICS (Internet Connection Sharing), that is, when your computer becomes THE router.

    4. Insert/mount your Windows XP CD.

    5. Add/Remove Programs - Add/Remove Windows Components (then scroll down) - Networking Services - Details. Check Internet Gateway Device and Discovery Client and UPnP User Interface. Install them. Reboot for good measure if you want, but it's not needed.

    6. Use a web browser to access your router in admin mode (password: 1234). Advanced - UPnP. Check the two available check boxes. Apply changes. You might have a new icon in the status bar, one for the LAN connection and one called "Internet Connection". In Control Panel - Network Connections, the same item appears under "Internet Gateway".

    7. Open a program that supports UPnP, find the option to enable it, and...that's it. It will automagically appear in Internet Connection Properties - Settings if the program is running.

    8. If you want to see it in action, run the NAT/Firewall Test of Azureus, test any port suitable for Bittorrent (above 10,000 so you don't conflict with other stuff) and you should get OK after OK. Another way is to change ports *while* you're downloading something.

    Q: Modem has 3 lights only
    A: It's in bridging mode. Turn the modem into routing mode.

    Q: Bumagal yung speed
    A: Switch to bridge mode and download Ubuntu through Bittorrent. Take note of the speed. Enable UPnP again and try to download. You should arrive at the same speed. You're doing something wrong if the speeds greatly differ. Turn off any software firewall and antivirus programs.

    Q: Can't connect to Internet anymore
    A: Check your modem's WAN settings (Network - WAN - Internet Connection). If other PCs/laptops on your LAN can't connect except you, do steps 3, 4, 5, and 7 on all computers connected to the modem/router.

    Q: No gateway appears in Network Connections
    A: Make sure the modem is in routing mode, and sometimes, you just have to wait a bit.

    Enjoy :)

    Universal Plug and Play.
    No, it's simply automatic port forwarding. no effect on speed po. :)

    @ralphswurld
    the configuration is done on the router, kaya everything hooked up to the router will gain the benefit

    because you already have a router, enable upnp on the router itself, not the modem. kaya ka nagkakadouble NAT :)

    @ralphswurld

    pag double router, cascading router, etc ang connection mo, ilagay mo sa DMZ ng modem/router mo yung WAN IP address ng isa pang router mo...

    example setup:

    modem/router LAN IP: 192.168.1.1
    DMZ: 192.168.1.2

    dlink router LAN IP: 192.168.0.1
    dlink router WAN IP: 192.168.1.2

    pag ganyan setup mo, sa dlink router ka na lang gagawa ng port forward rules or enable upnp sa dlink kung gusto mo...

    pag naka router mode yung modem, yung WAN IP ng dedicated router eh magiging 192.168.x.x or 10.x.x.x (local IP)... pag bridge mode yung modem ang WAN IP ng dedicated router eh 122.x.x.x.x or 124.x.x.x.x or 58.69.x.x etc etc etc (public IP)

    ganito setup ko tol

    modem: routed mode

    so enable ko yung dhcp ng db108 from 192.168.1.2 - 192.168.1.55

    tas eto sa router:
    WAN ip ng netgear router ko: 192.168.1.2

    LAN ip range : 192.168.2.2 - 192.168.2.55

    hindi na kailangan yung up to 192.168.1.55 na dhcp range kasi isa lang naman ang mabibigyan ng IP ng modem mo eh, at yun ay yung netgear router mo...

    yung wan ip ng netgear mo ang ilalagay mo sa DMZ ng modem mo... kya lang mukhang walang DMZ yang db108 eh... alam ko limited lang ang features nyan... try mo na lang hanapin... mas maganda pa rin yung alcatel modem, madami features at stable pa... pero same lang sila na broadcom chips...

    diba mas madali pag yung modem e naka bridged mode nalang at yung router yung ikakabit mo from there para wala nang hassle?
     
  15. dyoddyowel

    dyoddyowel Member




    yup... yun ang lagi ko recommended sa mga tao na dapat bridge mode ang modem kung merong router na bukod, pero meron pa ring iba na mas gusto router mode yung modem at meron pa silang isang router kaya nangyayari nagkakaproblema sila sa fort forwarding...

    yung iba naman ng makita yung mga guide na ginawa ko tungkol sa iba't-ibang modem eh akala nila dapat muna nila sundin yung guide ko bago nila magamit yung router... kya naglagay na ako ng note sa mga guide ko kung para saan ba talaga yun at kung kelan nila dapat sundin yun at wag na nila sundin yung guide kung meron na silang router...

    dito sa forum me mga threads na nagtatanong kung paano nila configure yung modem nila para magamit nila yung router nila, pero di nila alam na di na nila need pa galawin yung modem kung me router na sila, yung router lang ang gagalawin nila... medyo naco confused kasi yung iba eh...

    pero pwede rin naman yung double router connection kya nga lang meron pang extra hassle...

    Di pa kc dumadating linksys router d2 samin, currently gamit ko ngaun yung zyxel modem in routing mode. pag dumating dito I'll check kung bakit nadi-DC parati in a modem + router setup, I'll guess it's a router configuration thing :D
