there are two ways to configure router....u can install routher through the router disk which will require the connetion information like ur user name and password, setup wizard will auto detect the conntion and will configure the router, second method is mannul, wherein we open router page ex:speedtouch576 router page ip address is, once page is open then go to setup wizard it will ask for user name and password,if ur conntion is optaion dynamic ip address which is ur network server address then it will automatically connet, otherwise you have to optain some information from service vpi code and vci code,multiplexing method, enscapsulations..etc) put these information correctly on router page, router will be online

Router is device which connect two networks

 Hey i think its not necessary that the 1st one should be WAN and the 2nd one should be LAN. Its can be anything. Actually Router is a device that connects two r more networks together using logical ip addressing.

A router has only one ip address and that is the one that is assigned to you be the isp. The router then distributes a temporary ip address that always looks something likes this or etc..... There is not two different ip address just one, yours and the distribution ip address which is given to all you lan clients

1) Open a web browser window and type your Default Gateway IP number in the address bar. It should be in most cases.
2) To login leave username blank and type admin for the password (unless you have changed it before which is always advisable)
3) Find the section that says Port Range Forwarding or similar
4) Add in the port range 6881-6889 for Torrent files
5) Make sure you check both protocol boxes TCP and UDP as well as the Enable setting.
6) Have the forward address set as your internal IP address in our case. To find yours Go to Start -> Run and type in cmd.
7) Confirm and submit all the changes and that will probably work.

For example,

Router(config)#hostname N115-7206
N115-7206(config)#interface serial 1/1
N115-7206(config-if)ip address
N115-7206(config-if)no shutdown
N115-7206#show interface serial 1/1
N115-7206(config)#interface ethernet 2/3
N115-7206(config-if)#ip address
N115-7206(config-if)#no shutdown
N115-7206#show interface ethernet 2/3
N115-7206(config)#router rip
N115-7206#show ip protocols
N115-7206(config)#ip name-server
N115-7206(config)#enable secret password
N115-7206#copy running-config startup-config

You can config your computer also as router because router is third layer device that is Network Layer device and in your computer you also have this layer

First step: Give two more IP to our computer because this will route packet in more than one network and

Second step: Go and enable IP-forwading.
