I normally have the modem on Machine #1 Which holds my apache server.
But Due to my modem dying, and refusing to install a diffrent modem driver on Machine #1, I have resorted to installing them on Machine #2…
Problem is, I thought All I would have to do is go into ICS settings and turn on “http” service and divert it to Machine #1
tell me a way to play C’n’C generals with a router and I will think about it… Til then, I’m sticking with modem, that way I can see with a graph the speed of the internet, keep a log of how much bandwidth iv used, when i used it.
I’ve never had to use a router in 3 years, why start now.
And I found out the modem IS dead. Buying a Replacement, Will arrive in a few days.
I love ICS, never had a problem with it with the SpeedTouch Modem, Its just you cant get anything done with the BT105. due to its Piss Poor way of working. Great if you want 1 machine, not to share the internet in any type of advanced way over a network.
Good for them, I replaced the modem, Everything is fine now.
The bandwidth monitor im using Wont work with what ever a router tries to log, so there is no point in the router logging anything. My bandwidth monitor runs along the bottom of my screen so I can clearly see whats going up and down to the second. All a router would be able to tell me is Numbers If I ever went into the setup of it. I cant be botherd to do, sit there Every second, refreshing the page just to see whats going up and down now.
I would follow the advice DT. if it was the advice I had asked for.
Trust me, I dont like routers, i Dont want a router.
My setup is perfect for me right now. All i wanted to know was why would Port forwarding not work on a different modem and how to get it working again.
But since I cut out that problem by getting the same modem as the one that died, its perfect again.
OK, so next bit of advice, take a look at the geekiest ISP there is - Andrews and Arnold if you want traffic stats. Blocks of IP no problem, real time actual usage and a tech support policy that will make you chuckle.
There is NO way I’d trust a network based on ICS. My opinion, based on experience.
