Wirless Routher acting strange...

  1. Hi,
    I just recently bought a BELKIN "N" wirless routher to replace my Linksys Wirless routher. Everything works well except when it comes to this part.
    - I enable the DMZ settings puting in the IP address of the computer which I want, then the wirless stops working. Only the wired desktop works, then when I disable the DMZ everything seems to work again. I need the dmz to be able to play/ host games In Empire Earth AoC. Is there anyway I can go around it? Never had this problem in Linksys :(
    Thanks,

    the object of a DMZ setup is to isolate systems. disabling WiFi is one way to do this.

    see this post
    as a technique to ensure your LAN systems are isolated from WiFi users

    yes, each vendor can implement the DMZ per their design :(

    backup; Try to state your objective; what do you want to happen. Frequently there are multiple ways to skin a cat :)
