How can I configure a D-Link DI-604 or DI-704?

  1. Open your browser and type in the address to your router (usually in the address field and login.
  2. Go to Advanced and click on Virtual Server. Depending on the firmware version, you might only be able to enter a name, IP and port. Other versions allow you to specify which protocol to forward. If your screen does not look like this, try updating your firmware. Make sure you forward TCP and UDP (or select Both).

  3. Enter any port over 1024 into both Private and Public port.
  4. Enter your computer's local IP into Private IP. (Win 9x: Start > Run > winipcfg | Win 2k/XP: Start > Run > cmd /k ipconfig /all )
  5. Your computer may get different IPs from your router over time. When this happens, active mode will no longer work. To prevent this from happening, set up the router to assign your computer the same IP each time based on your network cards (NIC) MAC address. Go to Home and then click on DHCP.

  6. Enter in your NIC MAC address, which can be found when you got your computers local IP, seen in step #4. Make sure to have the router assign the same IP address your computer currently it using.
  7. In DC++ settings, enter your current external IP (can be found here) and the port you chose to forward.
  8. You may have to reboot your router for the changes to take affect. If you can search and download files you have configured it successfully.

Thanks to Lundis for the screenshots
