Hi, For some reason or another i'm not able to ping my router outside of my LAN and have tried using Babel Fish http://babelfish.altavista.com/ without any success. I'm almost certain that it was possible to ping my DSL-G604T router via the internet however a flash upgrade has seemingly left my DSL-G604T inoperable. (any advice on how to double check whether or not the flash upgrade has rendered this inoperable would be appreciated). The router that i'm using is a Medion/Aldi router and i've left the "This device should not respond to ping" option unchecked. I've configured port 1024 for port forwarding through ip address 192.168.1.20 which is the ip address of my ip camera. Obviously if it's not possible to ping my router i'll not be able to get my ip camera to work via the internet only LAN side. I'm running out of ideas now and would really appreciate some suggestions to help get me up and running. Thank you. Best Regards.
