Hi can someone please help clear up my concerns because I accidentally interned the wrong DNS address on my new router.
After entering this typo I almost immediately that my connection was unstable especially on Linux and yesterday evening when I logged back into my router the DNS settings were set to there defaults. But I was able to surf the web kinda in Windows though it timed out often and certain webpages wouldn't even open, and now when ever I enter the correct DNS settings it disconnects from the internet.  
Here's what I entered

Preferred Solution: Open DNS typo on router

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Open DNS typo on router

Two things you might check:
1. In Windows, do your Network Properties have a DNS Server entry(s) that point(s) to your router (probably or close) or do they point to the published OpenDNS IP addresses? Easy check: From an Elevated Command Prompt: ipconfig /all
2. After you corrected the DNS router entries, did you have the router do a cold reboot?
I believe you shouldn't overly stress yourself over this if you didn't make any financial transactions. But new passwords could be needed.

I mistyped a url earlier (I believe i typed 'radiosahck' instead of radioshack) and was redirected to a strange website (something about internet surveys I believe) I closed it right away and did a quick scan with malwarebytes to make sure nothing was wrong, and it came up empty. I'm probably being a bit paranoid here, but is this anything to really worry about?

Answer:Odd URL typo redirect...

Redirects can be something to worry about, as you have no idea what content is being hosted on the re-direct. Most popular anti virus programs, have real-time scanning, where it's constantly scanning your computer, and as soon as you're redirected to a bad website, it will block any content that's harmful to your computer. I use Eset and it does this.

Question: Microsoft Typo

Microsoft made a typo in their WinSAT application, How can we let them know about it?

Answer:Microsoft Typo

Hi Steven,

You can try contacting them by following the link below. Whether or not you will get a response I cannot say. I have managed to locate the error in the 'WinSAT.exe' file (notice the space between the letters), and you can edit it to replace the erroneous 'o' with an 'i', however by doing so you will probably cause it to fail an SFC scan. In my opinion, it is such a minor error that it is probably best left ignored.

Hello everyone,

I am experiencing the red typo lines when there are no typos. This happens on occasion when I'm typing emails and posting or responding to forums. It seems to occur when there is an actually typo and I correct the error. After that the entire post/email from that point on will have the red typo lines.

For example it is happening now... I'll try to post a pic for a better understanding.

Has anyone experience this as well and most importantly does anyone know of a solutions to this?

So I was browsing around in Windows Defender (Windows Settings > Update & Security > Windows Defender > Open Windows Defender Security Center > Virus & threat protection > Virus & threat protection settings, then scroll down to Controlled folder access.)

The sentence "Protect your files and folders from unauthorized changed by unfriendly applications" has a typo in it.
(Refer to the attached picture)

? The word "changed" has a typo in it and should be the word "changes" (with an 's' instead of a 'd'), or
? There is at least one missing word in between the words "unauthorized" & "changed"
Somebody should inform Microsoft about this typo.

But Also: I noticed that this is a new option, since the last time I was browsing around in there. What does this option exactly do? It was originally off, but I turned it On. Yet I must say that I have seen a few messages pop up in the right corner of the screen, stating that Windows Defender blocked some programs from making changes. One of them showed explorer.exe from modifying the Favorites folder without me doing anything with Favorites. Exactly what does this option do? Is it kind of like some sort of strict "Firewall"? Because if so, then I like that.

Blocks access to your files and documents by unknown apps (malware/ransomware). It's off by default because not all 'good' apps are in it's 'trusted' list. It takes a bit of fiddling to get all your apps to work after you turn it on.

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program.

Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Is there a way to tell Microsoft Word to "guess" what I mean every time I make a typo? For example, I type "tsanding," and instead of changing it to "standing," it underlines it red. I know I can then right-click it, and select AutoCorrect > standing, so that, from now on, if the same exact typo arises in the future, in which I accidentally type "tsanding," it'll change it to "standing." I've thus far collected *hundreds* of specific typo corrections in this way. But that's very time-consuming, and is only a weak attempt at preventing typos I may be likely to make in the future (based on the fact that I made the exact typo at least once before). Is there any way to establish that I want Microsoft Word to go ahead and correct every single "underlined red" occurrence from now on, based on its best guess as to what I meant? (except in cases where the typo was so bad that it has no guess at all) That way, when it corrects something I *didn't* want corrected, I can then go back and add what I wanted to its dictionary, to tell it not to consider that word an accident from then on.

Answer:Is there a way to tell Microsoft Word to "guess" what I mean every time I make a typo?

Found this in the Word Help files. On the Tools menu, click AutoCorrect Options. In the Replace box, type a word or phrase that you often mistype or misspell ? for example, type usualy. In the With box, type the correct spelling of the word ? for example, type usually. Click Add. Is this what you're talking about?

Answer:My Windows 7 copy looks counterfeit. Typo on back cover. Came from China (eBay). Pics

It's fake, that's pretty obvious. The hologram thing is most likely a sticker on top of the actual disc surface - you can use a fingernail or razor blade at the very edge and lift it up a bit, that's 100% proof. The part numbers don't seem to match up with the actual Windows 7 Ultimate part number, and it just has a fake quality all the way around.

If you contact Microsoft, show them the pics, explain where you bought it from and your situation, there is a small - small but it exists - chance they'll provide you with a key just for making the report and identifying the seller you got it from.

No guarantees, but at the moment you're better off reporting it to them and going from there. Sure can't hurt to let them know, either way.

I'd report it, personally, without even really thinking about it. It just SCREAMS fake.

I have looked around a lot to try and find a way to change my settings to open, but alas NO LUCK. Only links I find are ones that tell you how to do it if you're connection has a router. I'm not on a router, I'm using a Virgin Mobile Broadband card and the only firewall I'm behind is a windows firewall.

Now, you'd think I could just turn off the firewall and solve the problem.. but no. If I do that, it won't even let me log into the game. Terrible connection issues with this game. Soo.. yeah. I've come here because last time I came here people were real friendly and helpful.

I know how to forward ports on this router, but ever since I had to restore my windows to a fresh copy, my router doesn't work right.

Also, I restored my router to default settings after I couldn't get it to forward any ports.

This is pretty much my problem, whenever I forward my port I want open, i check it and get the message "Error: I could not see your service on on port (55655)

It's driving me insane. I've forwarded ports before on this router, but it's not working this time.

Make sure you set a static IP on the computer you want
to forward to and use that port for forwarding.

Opening a port is a goofy term - - let's start with just using a port.
For a port to exist, some program creates a socket and then uses it to LISTEN for connections. You can see this with (command prompt tool) netstat -oan
Programs which are awaiting connections show up like

the nnn are the 'port numbers' created by the program.

Q? Which ports are open? A: only those that exist, eg: port 135 is open, and port 136 is closed (ie doesn't exist).
Regardless of your other setups for the router and firewall, the port is not open unless a program is LIST... Read more

I've got a Linksys router and I'm trying to SSH into my home machine (, however in the UPnP Forwarding page of the router setup neither SSH nor SFTP are in the Preset Applications list. Whenever I try to add it to the customized applications list, if I use internal port 22 (external port shouldn't matter, right? though I've tried it both ways) via TCP it gives me the error "Failure: No space to add Virtual Server or have a duplication port:ssh." I get the same error if I try to use port 22 in Port Range Forwarding.

Not only that, but if I set the Preset Application for FTP to internal port 22 it makes the changes successfully, but doesn't work. So the question is, what else in the router is set to port 22 (I've looked and couldn't find anything that had a 22 in it) that might conflict with the UPnP forwarding? Also how would I fix it?

Edit: I should also mention that if I keep Preset FTP at internal port 21 as is default it works completely, likewise if I SSH from a machine on the LAN via IP address (thus bypassing the router) on port 22 it also works fine.

Edit again: Forgive me for being retarded, I assumed it was a linksys because that's what I usually buy, upon further inspection of the upper left corner of the screen it turns out that it's a Network Everyhwere nr041... so if you can solve my first two questions here's the extra credit: how did I get this router (I didn't buy it)?

Answer:Can't open 22 on Linksys router??

I don't think you are on the right page to do the thing you want. You shouldn't be on the UPnP page to setup your port forwarding. There should be another page in the router labled port forwarding where you can specify the range of ports (22 to 22) and the address you want the port forwarded to (the machine you want to SSH into).

Nothing to worry about; Port80 is an alternative for http and ICMP Pings are simply the means of checking if a user is still on the site.If you have a good Antivirus program and windows firewall activated and combine these with common sense you will be ok.

Open Port Check Tool it says ''Error: I could not see your service on 62.**.***.*** on port (*****)
Reason: Connection timed out''

So.... How can i open my ports?? Do i have to call my router provider or something??

Answer:Router ports won't open

It really depends on your specific router model to setup port forwarding, it's hard to tell really. But a few things you could do in advance are checking that your computer as a fixed LAN IP address, and forward the port to that IP and make sure a program is actually listening to that port when you run the check online.
Another way to check it would be to connect two computers to the router, one to a LAN port and another to the WAN port, and check whether or not they can see each other.

hi, I know this is more of a windows forum, but when I was searching this is the place most of my searches lead me too. Right now I'm in Russia using a Zyxel Keenetic router, which works fine without using OpenDns. There doesn't seem to be a model number either, just Keenetic. There's no way that I've found to change to point to the Open DNS servers on the router, only on the individual computers, maybe there's a conflict. The 4g company I'm going through is Yota. When I try to use OpenDNS the internet might work for a site or two but then stops. When I use the standard windows troubleshooting, it says the problem is the DNS server isn't responding.

Hello folks... I am sick and tired of constantly fiddling with my static IP address on consoles and with my router in order to try and get Open NAT, or trying to choose which ONE of my many consoles get to be in the DMZ, only to have something reset my settings behind my back. Really sick of it.

So, I want a router than designates one of its physical Ethernet ports as OPEN NAT or DMZ, and anything connected to that port, all switches and devices that may be attached, are automatically OPEN NAT or DMZ. This would be phenomenal for me as I already have all my consoles and other entertainment devices already hooked to a series of switches going back to one port on my router, all hard wired.

Where can I buy such a router, and if it doesn't exist, why the hell not?

EDIT: Just found one that might work from T-P Link on Amazon... it seems to have a dedicated DMZ port, but then I realized that I am forced to use a specific router with MoCA by my ISP (I have FiOS). So can I then buy a second router, give it a static IP, set that static IP as DMZ in the first router, and hook all my devices that I want to be Open NAT/DMZ to the second router by turning off NAT completely on the second router? Will that even work?

Answer:Looking for router with an Open NAT/DMZ port! Does it exist?

just get a static ip for every console you have... plus one for your router to connect your household's other devices, pcs/tablets/phones

set them up all on a switch that connects directly to your isp, none of your consoles will need NAT or DMZ...

but tbh, most consoles are pretty NAT friendly, maybe your problems aren't with that...

Answer:Open port on 2 router system, without access

You cannot have two routers connected so I suspect you have a BT Openreach Modem connected to a Router, this is the usual set up for a Fibre connection unless you replace both with a VDSL Router.
You need only access the Router and Open ports on that but many routers supplied by service providers are quite basic and cannot be changed from a standard setup.

If you rely on BT for high-speed internet or VoIP, there's a good chance a pair of UK-based researchers know how to enable a backdoor in your router that leaves you wide open to eavesdropping, caller spoofing and other nasty attacks.
The vulnerability resides in the BT Home Hub, one of the UK's most popular home routers, according to Adrian Pastor and Petko D. Petkov. A constellation of bugs in the router, which is made by Thomson/Alcatel, make it possible to bypass the device's password authentication system and gain complete administrative control.

All an attacker needs to do to exploit the weaknesses is lure the victim to a maliciously crafted website, according to this post on the GNUCitizen blog. The exploit doesn't require knowledge of the administrator password.
"The BT Home Hub is vulnerable to an authentication bypass that allows us to make any administrative requests to the router from a malicious website WITHOUT needing username and password," Pastor wrote in an email to The Reg. He and Petkov have confirmed the vulnerability in the BT Home Hub running the most recent firmware. They believe the exploit will work on all Thomson/Alcatel Speedtouch 7G routers.
US-based BT representatives didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.
The scope of the vulnerability and the ease in carrying it out means that a remote attacker can quietly gain full administrator control over a device simply by social engineering a user into visiting a website. The exploi... Read more

i have a blitzz 4 port router, and i cant do file transfers on AIM and stuff like that, and i cant figure out how to manually open the ports necessary to send and get files

Answer:i need to figure out how to manually open ports with my router

Don't know which Blitzz router your using but taking the user manual "MU_BRT200_01.pdf" as a guide, opening the ports is described in the section "Virtual Server" (page 17 onwards).

There is a "Virtual Server" Menu page into which the the configuration details have to be entered.
The Application Port drop-down list on the "Virtual Server " menu may offer up AIM (in the same way as it offers FTP, telnet, etc). If not, then you should be able to add it.
The port type is, I expect, TCP for AIM (but I could be corrected on that as I am not a regular user of AIM).
You need to know the ports AIM uses. Judging by the list on AIM requires port 5190.
So you'd select "Single". But it you need a range then select "Range" (again that is AIM-specific info someone else may be able to provide if you don't already know it).
Then enter the port number. Thus "5190 to 5190" in the provided fields if a single port or the range if that is what AIM requires.
Pick the LAN IP address of the PC you want to run AIM on and enter that in "Local Server IP address". So that would be or something of that ilk depending on your LAN set-up.
If all your details are correct press ADD.
That should be it as far as I can see.

I don't know with the Blitzz routers, but with some (many?) SOHO router models it is only possible to port-forward a particul... Read more

I typically open a single port for torrents, and leave it alone. Upon coming back home from college however, I noticed that my family's network for opening ports is filled with randomly opened ports for ips in the network. I've closed the ports and opened ports for myself, but that is undone after some degree of time with a new set of opened ports. No one else in the family is doing it, and I've since taken security precautions. Previously, the network had no password, but I now changed the router password from default and I've added WPA-2 Personal password. However, the ports keep on opening (and overriding mine). I've asked the people in my family to run virus checks, although I'm not sure all of them have.So, back to the question:Could this be a virus or spyware?

my new room mate helped me with a router set up before and at some point I changed the ISP and reset everything with a new password. My room mate asked for the new password, so I logged into my router and from there he took over, copied the password and also opened up a port range to go to some IP address which I don't know whose it is. The next day my laptop wouldn't start and ran some Repair application. Eventually it started back up and I ran a virus and spam check but found nothing. My question is: why would my roomate open up a range of ports? And what risk does this pose for me? I actually just disabled the open ports but I don't want to overreact either. Thanks!

Answer:risk of open application port on router

Ports are how your computer (or router) communicates with the outside world. Your roommate may need to open some ports for programs that demand specific ports to function optimally. He may have a game system that requires port activation. Not as scary as it sounds. I would ask your roommate just to make sure he knows what hes doing.

I also cannot ping either of the routers' webpages, The ipconfig /all is as follows:

That's all I am able to copy from that list - I can't seem to grab the the bit at the top.

Any ideas on how to solve this would be appreciated.

Hello, i am trying to update a Router model Asus RT N10 firmware but the files have a TRX ending , anybody know how to open these?

Thank you

Answer:how to open a TRX file to upgrade router firmware

You don't open them, you just point it to that file,

Looks pretty straight forward, here's a link to your manual too,

Page 30 is what that snip is from.

I'm brand new to this site. Just read about your site in my AARP newspaper, so that should tell you I'm 60+.
My son, a high school teacher, has set up all the desktops I've ever had and the current laptop, as well as the Belkin router. My desktop is Dell dimension E521, purchased May, 2007. The operating system is Windows Vista home premium. My laptop, which is what I'm using to send this message, is a Dell, purchased in 2013, with Windows 8.1 operating system. Up until about 3 weeks ago, I was able to access my email and surf the web from the desktop. The router is Belkin, purchased right after I got the laptop, and has worked fine until 3 weeks ago. I can access everything with no problem from the laptop, but the desktop and the router now fight each other. Just tried to get on so that I could tell you what happens. I click my browser icon, Mozilla Firefox, and the home screen comes up fine. I then click to sign in to email and the router light goes from blue to orange and after about a minute, I get a message "server not found". I close that window and the router light returns to blue. My granddaughters are not happy either because I let them use the desktop to play their games and access sites such as funbrain. Frustration level now runs deep as I'm seriously considering getting another router. My house is a 1-story ranch. ISP is AT&T, DSL with a Westell 2100 wired modem. Your help will be greatly appreciated by this frustrat... Read more

hi, i have wireless internet access through a motorola canopy wireless router, and i just want to open up port 21, because no1 can connect to my ftp or i cant connect to other ftp's.. i dont know why, ive tried port 21 and other ports as well but nothing seems 2 b working and its extremely fustrating, now i have access to the router config. and the only place i can put ports is something called "user defined port filtering configuration" and it also asks me to put in some decimal value.. well that kinda throws me off so.. huh.. if anyone can help, id really appreciate it...

thanks in advance

Answer:how to open ports on a motorola canopy wireless router

First, FTP is much more complicated than just forwarding port 21. You might want to read up on FTP and firewalls

Second, the exact model of the router would be helpful..

Hi all,

So I have had a moderate NAT while gaming on Xbox Live. From what I understand, opening the ports on my router will better enable my network hardware to communicate with Xbox live servers, changing my NAT to open, and thus allowing me to connect to my best friends party so we can play team doubles on Halo 4!

Anyway... I have tried opening the ports by accessing my router by typing its IP address into the URL. When I do this however, I receive an error message saying "this webpage is unavailable." I have tried this with both the Default Gateway and the IPv4 Address to no avail.

Also, I want to note that the router I am currently using is a DELL TrueMobile 2300 Model: WX-5565D

Moreover, I called DELL technical support for help on the issue and they told me that the router I was using is approx. 9 years old (about 2,518 in technology years).

With that said I am left to assume that maybe, just maybe, the operations I am trying to perform on my ro... Read more

Answer:Trying to open my router ports for xbox live NAT issues.

So you've tried typing into your browser's address bar, and you get "cannot display webpage"?
Try resetting your internet browser's settings, then try it again.
Or type in http://my.router in the address bar.

Hello all,

I am planning to buy a router that will go in my structured media panel. It is a Leviton brand one. I put a piece of plywood behind the panel so it doesn't matter if the router mount holes match with the panel. I can drill through the panel and mount the device to the plywood. I am thinking to just get a couple of wireless access points to place around the house and a wired router that goes in the panel. I would like to get it without the wireless (don't want antennas wasting any space in the panel). I also want to find one that can handle open firmwares. Can anyone recommend a good router for this situation? Thanks.

Answer:Need open firmware router that will fit in structured media panel

Mikrotik Routerboard 750GL. A little larger than the size of a patch of cards. 5 ports ethernet, no wifi (optional I think).

edit: Here's a 10 port model, 5 GigE and 5 FaE.

I recently purchased a new laptop that came with Windows 8. Now, I'm not at all certain the issue is windows 8 related.

So I've been trying to host games with friends in multi-player (minecraft, terraria, risk of rain, borderlands, etc) but they never can seem to join my game. I've tried turning off my firewall and my antivirus. (I wasn't even on the internet, so it wasn't a big risk) We're connecting by ethernet, PC to PC, and I've ensured our IP addresses are in the same subnet.

So here's the kicker: I can join any game, so long as they host it, not me. And i can ping their PCs just fine, but if they try to ping my machine they get a "Destination Host Unreachable".

Anyone have any clue as to what could be blocking my ports from opening?

PS: don't worry about burying me with jargon, I'm a network administrator in training.

Answer:PC Ports wont open to host a game (NO ROUTER) PC to PC LAN ONLY

I assume you are using a Crossover cable and not a standard Ethernet Cable?
Have you assigned a Static IP address for all the computers playing the game? and is it in the same scope as the other computers? (eg) 192.168.2.x ?
Go to each computer and go to Search and type CMD Right click the CMD results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Command Prompt type
ipconfig /all and press enter. Copy the text and paste it into your next post.

I have been looking for a new router as my current one has packed in. I am mostly interested in a router with a fast and stable wifi and high throughput which can manage a high amount of maximum simultaneous connections. The linksys e4200 seems perfect and very well reviewed.
I am currently on adsl, no cable in area, so i would need one to have an adsl modem. Is there a version with a modem? Or will i need to look around for another?
I am mainly interested in throuput and the reviews and comparison sites sugest that linksys seems perfect midway between max simultaneous connections and price
Does anyone know of a comparison website that has adsl routers. The information am looking for on that's between 60 and 160 with high amount of ram, high throuput for Maximum Simultaneous Connections, similar to link text

Answer:recommend router high open connections without freezing

Linksys E4200 wireless router could be used to connect to ADSL modem, so no problem if you want to use it. In addition, you could also have a look on other wireless routers here.
Hope this helps.

When I soft-boot my UTStarcom UT 300 R2U modem/router, some sites open fine and others don't. Some others take terribly long to open. Then when I hard-boot it they all open fine. Is this an issue with its software (firmware) or hardware?

Answer:After ADSL modem/router soft-boot some sites don't open

you could check with their website to see if they have a firmware update

I have a Sagemcom FAST3686 router. I use it for my PC with cable and wireless for PS4, Xbox1 MacBook Pro, IMac, Sonos, and a lot of other stuff.

For a long time, I have had problems with a NAT3 and strict NAT in games. Both on the PC and on the consoles. Nothing have worked, port forwarding, MTZ or anything.

Then today I put my Apple Airport Express on the network. I put cable from router to the Airport and I still have the cable from the Sagemcom to my PC.

I have put the Sagemcom in bridge mode and disabled the wireless network in it. I have then set the Airport to DHCP and NAT.

Now I have open NAT on the PC and the consoles 😊

But is this a correct setup? What about security?

I simply don?t understand why PC now have an open NAT, when it?s still cabled from the Sagemcom, that is in bridge mode now?
