I had a D-Link router that was defective and I just bought a new AC3200 EA9200 router. I am trying to document all the settings that should be set to optimize remote viewing through a router to the net. I remember many of the settings yet it appears that this new LinkSys tries to "simplify" the user interface menus by providing as little information, details or technical nomenclature as possible. I am used to seeing tool box items and these new menu layouts suck for old technical geezers like me. Anyway, I was trying to recreate a shopping list of things I need to set to optimize the slingbox through-put.
This is what I think I remember but cannot find those detailed tips online: (I think there is more)
Port Forwarding for Application Name: "SlingBox"
Open Port 5001 for TCP and UDP (in/out)
Device IP (Static ID) Used: 192.168.2.254 - Reserve on SlingBox and Router also
Inbound filter - Allow All
Schedule: Always on
Under Dynamic IP (DHCP) Internet Connection Settings - MTU should be set at 1500
I am curious if that should be fixed at 1500 or set to automatic mode as offered on this machine?
NAT must be Enabled
Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) must be Enabled
Turn on Multicasting or broadcasting features???? (I forget where that is.)
Turn off firewall filtering for: ???
Fitler Off - Internet NAT Redirection
Filter Off - MultiCast
Can anyone provide any further clarification or details on things I have missed?
Thanks !!! Stan
