    I have a D-Link Router, attached i have the pcwrt and i have a static ip

    pcwrt = 192.168.1.1

    D-link = 192.168.2.1

    The home pc (LAN) = 192.168.1.2

    I have to use eMule and i can’t open the ports. I have opened the same TCP and UDP pors on d-link and pcwrt on “192.168.1.2” and this don’t work.

    What i have to do?

    The pcRWT router has two IP addresses: on thw WAN side, something like 192.168.2.x; on the LAN side 192.168.1.1.

    You need to set up port forward on the D-Link to the pcWRT WAN IP address. Then, on the pcWRT router, port forward to 192.168.1.2.

    Alternatively, you may put the pcWRT router in the DMZ of the D-Link.

    Thank you.

    1) Where can i find the WAN IP Address?

    2) Can i set the D-Link Router on Bridge Mode and then port forwarding just the pcwrt?

    1). On the status page. The Internet section.

    2). If you run the D-Link router in bridge mode, you only need port forwarding on the pcWRT.

    I’m failing to open the ports for uTorrent and Vuze.

    This is my configuration:

    pcwrt = 192.168.1.1

    d-link = 192.168.2.1

    The home pc (LAN) = 192.168.1.2

    WAN Address = 192.168.2.2

    My protocol of the pcwrt is DHCP Client.

    This is my XP Configuration

    as written by you here:

    WAN IP Address Change

    i’ve added a DHCP reservation into my d-link with the WAN address (192.168.2.2) and the “Override MAC address” showed in the pcwrt internet setting.

    Then, i’ve done the port forwarding on both pcwrt and d-link.

    Example: On the pcwrt i’ve opened the TCP Port number 47536 on my LAN ip address (192.168.1.2) and the same port on the d-link on my WAN IP Address (192.168.2.2)

    Is all this right? Because utorrent and Vuze show me that the ports are not opened.

    @casino Your port forwarding setup seems right (if port forwarding is needed). Are you blocked from downloading using Vuze? If not, there’s no need to worry about port forwarding.

    We discussed at length about this in another thread also: Parental Control and UDP connection

    Does port forwarding support port ranges? There is a game that we play that requires ports 7000-9000 to be forwarded.

    @fchangus Yes. Just enter the port as 7000-9000, for both external port and internal port.

    When I tried entering 7000-9000 as the port number, I get “Invalid port” error.

    @fchangus What is your firmware version? If not the latest, please upgrade & test again.

    I see this (not sure if it’s the firmware version): pcWRT TORONTO-N v1.16.1

    How do I upgrade it?

    1. Follow the instructions here to upgrade to v1.20:
      https://www.pcwrt.com/forums/topic/pcwrt-firmware-v1-20-for-toronto-n-is-available-for-download/
    2. Check that everything works fine. Make sure you create a backup from the System Settings page before proceeding with the upgrade. In case something goes wrong, you can restore the backup.
    3. Go to the System Settings again, click the “Check for Updates” button to upgrade to the latest version.
    4. You might lose your configuration in the last step. If that happens, you can either configure everything from scratch, or restore from your previous backup. However, restore Access Control only. Restoring whole backup from an old version may cause WiFi to malfunction.
