Having some issues getting ports open on a Dlink DI-604. The port forwarding is set properly and I need port 111 open but no deal! Checked online @ portforward.com to see if the port was open but no deal. Any ideas?

gman - if it is set properly and you used the portforward.com program (which i have never used, neither the pgm nor the site) properly then it is busted.

on the other hand if you posted some screen shots of the configuration of the dlink as a double check it might be worth your while.

assuming you power cycled the dlink and confirmed the settings stuck.
try a different port such as the unassigned 28245

Need more info.

What type of ISP are you working with? It could be that even though you have the port open on the Dlink that the ISP's device has it closed. I see this happen alot with DSL modems. You have to have most DSL modem's setup in bridgemode. If it is serving up DHCP addresses it won't work unless you go open up the ports in the DSL Modem as well.

It is a DSL service with Bell internet so it sounds like it could be a bridge mode issue...Thanks will try this tomorrow

Is 111 supposed to be the web port? Port 80 is often used for that and you can select a different port if 111 won't work. Some ports aren't allowed because of security risks. Have you called Speco yet?

80 is the http port. Speco was no help.

If it's DSL then I'm sure your issue is that the DSL modem is the issue. You can do a quick search with the model number and the term "bridge mode" and you should get plenty of hits on how to setup that particular modem. There may be a model or two that can not be put into bridge mode.

Easy way is to check what the Bell modem is up to is to see what WAN IP the D-Link has. If it's something like 192.168.1.64, then the modem is making the PPPoE connection and acting as a router, and sticking the D-Link on top of that is technically doing double-NAT which makes port forwarding extremely difficult.

If so, you'll need to change to making your PPPoE connection using the D-Link - this will require the client's login name and password.

As mentioned above you'll typically have to switch the modem to bridge mode for this to work, but not all modems actually require that. I'm using a SpeedTouch 516 on Bell (technically TSI third-party) and it allows PPPoE sessions from my router to occur without switching it to a dedicated bridge mode (which is handy as I can't access line statistics from the modem if the router makes the PPPoE connection, but can if the modem does - so I can switch back and forth quickly when needed).

Got it working...Got into the modem and bridged it...bingo it was working....the next issue that we had to face was that 2 of his older cameras were malfunctioning. Camera 3 video is dropping out and camera 4 has an intermittent black line roll. I reterminated the coax ends but problem wouldn't go away. I power cycled the power supply and the problem would resolve for awhile but would then start acting up after an hour or so. I metered the power at the power supply at 11.9 - 12 V. I suspect that it's a power issue causing this....I haven't metered at the camera end yet. There are 4 cameras on this system. 2 of them are run with cat5 for power and video and 2 of them are coax and 18/2 for power. The coax cams are the problem. They have the longest runs.

Any thoughts?

I think for Speco they default to port 100.

Most ISP's in my area block port 80 and you have to call them to get it unblocked. If you are using something that allows you to set the external port I suggest never using port 80. There are still devices that use port 80 that are not reconfigurable so if something like that were later added to the system you would have to change it anyway.
