    I am attempting to set up a network game of poker on pokerTH 0.5 when I try to connect to my mates pc i get a message saying if the server is behin a NAT router make sure port forwading is enabled.

    He gets the same thing if we do it the other way around

    Your router will have a tab on it that allows you to forward application traffic on a specific inbound port to a specific IP address.

    Have a look on the WEBUI of your router.

    I see, I dont know the exact location of where the port forwarding tab would be on that router but I agree with Zeb basicaly login to your router and look for something that says port forwarding or application and gaming tabs in the router interface.

    Can't find anything on the net about that model. You sure you've got the model number right?

    There's a page listed on NetGear's site for the DG834 Router - maybe the submodel you have is one that was released as part of a tie-in with *** (I won't even say the company name any more)

    Here ya go

    I know quite a lot of people on here are f***** off with AOL the only problem I have with them is that sometimes you access a site from your browser then it puts you into the aol thing.........no need, otherwise I havent got any complaints
