How To Set Up  A Linksys Router To Serve - Using Ports 59 and 6060 as examples.

There are 2 ways to make your Linksys router allow access through ports 59 and/or 6060, Port Forwarding and Port Triggering. You may choose whichever method you like but I’ve found that Port Forwarding is more reliable. I have included steps on both methods below...

*Note: This guide was made based on the Linksys Model BEFSR41 Router. Your settings may be a different. If so, contact linksys customer support on how to open ports on your router at Linksys Technical Support (800) 326-7114.

Step 1: You will need to set up your computer with a static IP.. This link will take you step by step on how to set it up.....

For Port Forwarding

Cick here for steps on setting up your linksys router for Port Forwarding: http://makeashorterlink.com/?R12824855

Port Forwarding For Ports 59 and 6060 would look like this:

Customized Application Ex.Port Protocol TCP Protocol UDP IP Address Enable
[Mirc] [59] To [59] [x] [x] 192.168.1.[***] [x]
[Mirc] [6060] To [6060] [x] [x] 192.168.1.[***] [x]

*** denotes the IP number you entered for your static IP address in step 1 above.

For Port Triggering

Port Triggering For Ports 59 and 6060 would look like this:

APPLICATION NAME TRIGGER PORT RANGE INCOMING PORT RANGE
[Mirc] [59] ~ [59] [59] ~ [59]
[Mirc] [6060] ~ [6060] [6060] ~ [6060]

Also you may need to check the linksys website for firmware updates that could help get you going. Even if you don’t think you need to update based on the “Whats New?” list, do so anyways because not necessarily all updates are listed.

Head to: http://www.linksys.com/download/ and follow the instructions to get your router’s download page.
