Prolink Router's Problem

February 8, 2010 at 04:05:24
Specs: Windows Vista

I always see my router's administration pages
when connecting to my website. Can anyone
tell me how to configure my router? I heard
someone said that uncheck "allow remote
administration" in router can solve the problem
but I cannot find this function in my router.
Anyone know how to solve my problem?

Check the "Miscellaneous Configuration" settings of your router.

Look carefully through all settings. It's been my experience that's in the "Access Controls" section of most of the SOHO router's I've worked on. You may also find it in "Administration".

Below is what I found.

Wireless Access Control

If you choose 'Allowed Listed', only those clients whose
wireless MAC addresses are in the access control list will be
able to connect to your Access Point. When 'Deny Listed' is
selected, these wireless clients on the list will not be able to
connect the Access Point.

It shows "Wireless Access Control Mode: Disable/Allow
Listed/Deny Listed" and it requires a MAC Address.
That's all.
Is this the one?

No it's not. This option is only to secure your wireless network by using MAC address filters.

Post the exact router model and manufaturer.
This helps us to show you the right direction.

Are you trying to connect to your web site from within your own network via a public IP address as this is a normal occurrence in these circumstances. If you want to connect to your own web site from within your own network you need to use a local address. It occurs because most SOHO router do not have local loop-back which is needed to do what is basically talking to yourself.

If this happens when you are trying to connect from out side your network then you do need to look for access control setting and prevent it.

My router model is PROLiNK H5305G. Can you tell me how to
do it? Thanks in advance.
Wireless Access Control is the only one I found and there is
nothing else associates with Access Control (in my opinion).

There is no downloadable manual available in the internet.
So you have to search the routers setup for an option called "remote managemet".
Whats about Response Number 5?
How did you try to access your web server?

Have you done the necessary port forwarding from the router to the computer running the web site. Port forwarding or Port Mapping is the option you want.

This is what shown in my router under port forwarding. I don't
know where to start.

Protocol: Both/TCP/UDP
Comment: ( )
Enable: check/uncheck
Local IP Address: ( ) Local Port: ( ) - ( )
Remote IP Address:( ) Public Port:( ) - ( )

Below is under Port Mapping Configuration.

Disabled/Enabled (choose one)
Group Interfaces ( )-> / <- Available Interfaces ( )
Select (default, radio, radio, radio, radio)
Interfaces under Default:
When I click at any one of the radios, (LAN1,LAN2,LAN3,LAN4,LAN5,wlan0,ppp0,ppp1,ppp2,ppp3,ppp4,ppp5,ppp6,ppp7) appear in the available interface as choices.
Can you assist me in setting the values? I am using apache server to run my website. Thanks a lot.
