Internet Setup Issues (DMZed and still having connection problems on DreamPi)

Post#1 » Tue Jan 24, 2017 11:55 am

Hello!

I recently changed locations and as a result changed internet connections. I have a router (Archer C7 v2) connected to a DSL modem (SmartRG 360n) that's in bridge mode, authenticating via PPPoE. I have the DreamPi connected, and in the router settings it's been statices and DMZed. I've also disabled the SPI Firewall.Unfortunately I've been having a host of problems ranging from:

-Planet Ring says it can't access the login server (typically of when it can't send packets back and forth)
-The Next Tetris won't let me get past the login screen
-AFO will get me into a game, but then cite connection issues and disconnect

I haven't had too much time to test out the other games, but I already know 4x4 is likely to be a pain. XD I figured it's worth asking if anyone else has experience with this, and might know something I could try to get this working alright.

Thanks in advance!

make sure you DMZ the dreamcasts IP, should end in .98 (For most people here it will be 192.168.1.98)
