    Hi Guys,

    I bought a Dlink DI-604 Router, just to accomodate me while my Linksys unit is out getting RMA'd

    I am trying to figure out how to port forward complete ranges (not just one port at a time) on this DLink, but I can't seem to out how.

    Can anyone give me a heads up on how to port forward complete ranges?

    Thanks in advance,

    Heeter

    Ah the 604, I had that model for a while, great router for the price. To anwser your question its just a matter of using a "-" for a range or using a comma to seperate the values.

    ex.
    2100-2500,2503

    Hope that anwsers your question! :)

    Well I tried that at first, right off the bat, and it won't let me put a "-" between the numbers.

    I have looked up and down the DLink online Owner's manual for what I can do and it does not write anywhere where I can input ranges.

    The latest firmware is installed (Came installed).

    I am perplexed as to why I can't config it this way.

    SAtarting at page 23 of the manual:
    Asuming you have the E version of the router. There are several.

    ftp://ftp.dlink.com/Gateway/di604_revE1/Manual/di604_manual_206.zip

    It has 2 boxes seperated by a - to set start and stop of range. Under applications-advanced, set triggers and forwarding.

    Make sure there are no "parental controls" active limiting functionality.

    Thanks LeeJend,

    But I have gone through all that, tried all that as well, to no avail.

    Boy do I miss my Cisco/Linksys router.

    Heeter - just for you I dug my old 604 E1 out of the junk box, hooked it up and ran through the steps. It worked fine. Here's what I did.

    Entered setup -advanced -applications
    Under special applications I typed in:
    name I made one up (junk)
    trigger I typed one in (1234)
    type (both)
    port (2100-2900)
    type (both)
    Checked the enable box and hit apply button.

    The screen came back in a few seconds and at the bottom 'Junk" was listed as a special application and the check box in front of it was checked indicating the forwarding was active. To open junk up and turn it off or edit it click the white symbol at the far right of Junks listing (just before the blue trash can symbol).

    PS My Firmware is 3.5.1 Nov 22, 2004 which is the latest, Reset to factory defaults is under Tools-System. If this doesn't work I suspect it is broke.

    Hi Leejend,

    I tried earlier again and it doesn't want to work. This is for a private FTP server.

    I don't use the FTP default of 21, but instead, I use 7212, and as well 50200-50450 port range as well. This works very well on the Cisco's and Linksys routers that I normally use. But this Dlink just won't have any part in this.

    So I did the next best thing, I just sold it about half hour ago. I hope it will be happy in it's new home, because it was being asked too much from me, I think.

    heh, thats a good solution :)

    Maybe that lower end D-link just has limitations, I have the DGL-4300 Gaming router and it kicks total ass. Tons of options and such, granted its not as good as a Cisco router would be, but not as expensive either :)

    Hi Aprox,

    That DGL4300 would be way better for my application than the DI604 by looking at the specs. Thanks for the heads up that model.

    Edit: Just placed one order from my supplier online. Good feedback and specs on it. Thanks again.

    Right on I am sure you will be very happy with it. Just be sure to upgrade it to atleast the 1.4 firmware (if it doesnt come with it already) it fixes a lot of stuff and adds features as well.
