Okay, I'm going to start off by saying I don't know much about the networking side of computers, so please forgive me if the answer seems more than obvious. I've been banging my head against this thing all day and still can't figure out what the problem is. All right, so...I have two computers and a broadband connection through an external modem, right? So I went and brought a CompUsa brand router, hooked up the computers two it along with the modem, and calibrated it all like it told me in the manual. And it's working all right at the moment except for two problems: Firstly, it disconnects me at weird times and I have to go into the control panel and actually tell it to reconnect. This hasn't happened since this morning but I thought I might toss it out there in case anyone had any ideas. No biggee. The big problem is this: I can't play WoW or use AIM. I did research and, duh, I had to set up my ports...but this stupid CompUsa brand router has an impossibly dense control panel that I can't figure out. SO...can anyone either help me forward my ports or do whatever else it takes to get the router to let me USE the programs? Or, and here's something my dad mentioned...is there a way I can designate my router as just a simple bridge or whatever, so that the computer go through the router but don't necessarily need to to connect for them? Any help you guys can give me is greatly appreciated.
