I just got a GigaFast EE410 R router. I am currently running Windows XP. I do alot of downloading and sharing, I downloaded Badblue a sharing program, it allows me to upload files then have other users connect to download them. Well heres the problem it runs for me but when i give out the link others cant access. I read the support page and it says i may need to set up port forwarding on my router so others can connect. I tried portfowarding.com and they have dont my router. Also i have 2 computers hooked up. But i needed to share some files with friends out of states, i then disconnected my router and hook the cable straight to my Cable Modem with out using the router and restarted my computer and then they could access my file share link and download off me. I don't know to much about this. I just know when i plug directly into my Cable modem i can type in my ip address and search the files i uploaded and so can other users. But as soon as i hook my router up when i type in my ip it takes me straight to the Login screen to setup my router instead of the place where i would see my uploaded files. Other users just get a cant be displayed screen.
Like i said i am new to this and i don't know if i explained it well enough. Any help would be nice thanks so much.
