I have just acquired a N900 router to partner with my virgin media superhub(which was rubbish in router mode), which overall I’m liking, apart from the firewall, which is really badly implemented.
I have some forwarding ports set up (80, 443, 3389)
As soon I as added those, my firewall stoped working (I’m using auditmypc.com to check for open ports).
I added 2 firewall rules:
Incoming: WAN > LAN - source (*) - destination (192.168.1.2 - 192.168.1.254) - port range (*)
outgoing: LAN > WAN - source (192.168.1.2 - 192.168.1.254) - destination (*) Port range (*)
Action - Allow
The second rule I tried adding because the first one not only stops incoming (as far as I can tell), but stops outgoing too.
The manual is quite frankly ridiculous on the subject. I have used many routers in my time (my last one prior to the superhub was a draytek), but this has me confused.
I have tried turning the IPv4 SPI firewall on and off. I’m on firmware 1.05.12.
ANy help would be greatly appreciated, otherwise this is going back to the shop and I’m getting a draytek again
