Remote Administration

hi
 
    I have my router configured correctly for remote administration but I am using a dsl modem from my ISP. the modem has a non internet ip address 192.168.1.1. So I want to know is there anyway I can remote administer my router from any internet PC using https://192.1681.1:8080 since I know that will not work since I need a valid internet ip address.
 
thanks

Hi
 
It is not possible to remote access anything using a private Ip address as Private ip address is adhere to follow certain set of rules .
and u really cannot break those rules , or there is no way.
what else u can do , is tell ur ISP to provide u a public ip .
they will do it , cause u are payin for the services .
 
Or just tell them , to bridge ur modem.

Re: Remote Administration

You have a private IP Address on the Status tab of the router.

Re: Remote Administration

Well in that case it won't be possible to do the Remote Administration using the Private ip address 192.168.1.1.What you could do is get the public ip address from your ISP & you will be able to enable the remote Administration.
