Solved why can't I connect to netgear wireless router remotely

February 2, 2012 at 10:14:00
Specs: Windows XP
My router works fine internally, however, I can't log onto the router remotely. I'm using XP and MS 7 systems. I have tried with and without my virus program. The IP address just isn't recognized.
I have turned on Remote Mangement and click the selection "everyone" to be able to log on. I don't even get the log on screen.
I selected "Port Forwarding" and played with every setting.
How can I fix this. I need to access a wireless camera that is attached to the router. This also works internally.

Generally you want to block outside access. A setting in the router ought to be default disabled. Also you'd need to both have ports open from outside computer and know the correct wan address and that the ISP not block ports.

✔ Best Answer
You don't need to turn on remote management in order to access the router from outside of the network. Remote management is just that, it enables you to configure the router remotely, something that most uses will never need to do. Turn it off.

Port forwarding is the thing to do. You need to forward the port that the Camera is listening on. If it is web based that will most likely be port 80 but could be different. You need to consult the manual for the camera. You also need to know the public IP address of the router.

But then the camera might not be configured for remote access.
