This is probably the most difficult part of getting started with on line gaming so
I figured it deserved it’s own thread. Even though I PERSONALLY wont have all
the answers, there are some really knowledgeable people in the community that might be willing to lend a hand so come up in here with your questions.
OK the first thing you have to do is find out which type/model of router you have.
This I can’t help you with so you are on your own but I’m guessing most of them have something ON them so look at it first. I think there is also a way to find out through Windows like through control panel but I cant remember so if anyone knows then feel free to post it up. Just trying to be as helpfull as I can.
OK next on the list is getting into your router. I personally use Windows XP so I’ll
start by posting the way I get into mine.
Hit the Windows key + R and you will get a little screen. Type in cmd and hit enter. You’ll get a black screen. Type in ipconfig and hit enter. You want the number that says gateway or something like that.
If you type in ipconfig/all you will get a lot more info. that might be usefull but some one else will have to fill you in on that.
Once you have the gateway number than open up your Internet Explorer and in the address bar type in that number and you should be inside your router.
If that didn’t work than here is another suggestion. Instead of the gateway number, type in home and then cross your fingers.
Now comes a potential road block. If your shit is behind a password than your shit outta luck if you don’t know it. I do have one thing for you to try though.
Look at your router and look for some kind of serial number. Give that number a shot and hope for the best.
Next you want to go here
and fuck it…even here
The more you understand this shit the higher your chances of success are.
Look through those and see if you can find your router or the info you need.
If all that fails ( don’t be lazy and NOT look through them ) and if you still can’t open them than come here and ask away. Of course screen shots always help but don’t make them all huge to where it fucks up the thread.
Well thats all I got so if any one else has any thing to add, be my guest.
