    TalkTalk Router problem

    Wondering if anyone else has TalkTalk broadband and have their own server as I have just moved to them and have had no end of problems trying to get access to my server.

    With my old router was able to connect to my home server with no problem

    Since going with TalkTalk I am unable to access my server as when I enter url to my home server all I keep getting is the router login page

    Been trying to explain and get a solution from TalkTalk for over 40 mins without any success.

    Am now wishing I had not moved from my last ISP

    Any help appreciated.

    Go into the router settings and turn off "remote access" and/or change the port which the router lets you acces it. Some of the routers have their remote access page set to port 80, which is the default port for web servers.

    if you need to access the router remotely set it to something like port 8080, which a normal port for remote access of the router.

    Or you can still use your old router with your new account.

    Re: TalkTalk Router problem

    If it is the D-Link DSL-2740R then goto advanced tab and "remote management" is toward the bottom of the menu on the left.

    You may also need to forward the incoming port to the IP of the PC running the server, port 80 for web server or port 21 (or whatever) for FTP.

    Thats also done on the advanced tab, top of the menu on the left.

    Re: TalkTalk Router problem

    it also might be worth checking out firmware and possiblytrying to flash the stock dlink firmware to it as the talk talk firmwares are crap, they even give themselves a higher number than the stock ones trying to imply newer firmwares............................

    as stated change remote login page port of router, or change your port for your server from 80 to 88 or 8080.

    Re: TalkTalk Router problem

    I have used dyndns.org for years all you do is sign up for free and create a account and choose your domain name, then you run a small program on your pc that updates your account with your ip address so that everytime it changes you can still use the domain name you choose. Some routers like the d-link one have a setting so they will update the IP automatically to your dyndns account.

    Or 1and1 internet are giving 12 months free, then 3.99 per month thereafter (plus VAT) for you to host your own website or ftp which includes your own email service, and you get 1 free co.uk domain included in the price, it has 10gb of space, dunno if thats enough for you.

    I use one for FTP and various websites so I can put the pictures in and files that I share on forums like this.

    5 days left before the offer ends though.
