    I'm trying to set up remote adming on this WRT54GXv2, which is hosting my Internet connection for one of my building. I enabled the remote admin function, and assigned port 8083 for it.

    Now I go to my other building, and open up Int Expl. I type in "http://xx.xx.xx.xx:8083" (where xx.xx.xx.xx is the IP address of the WAN port of the router) and I get a "page cannot be displayed" mesage...
    What's going on?

    Did I miss something?
    Also, I have other WRT54G behind this router. I enabled "remote management" on this one, and assigned port 8082. Then I went to the main router which actually hosts my internet connection, and created port forwarding of port 8082 TCP to the internal IP address of this other router.
    Again, I walk to my other building, type in "http://xx.xx.xx.xx:8082", and get a "page can not be displayed".

    Just as a note, my DSL modem is a Wideye box, and I beleive that it is a router of its own. Can that be the problem?

    If your modem is indeed a router, then that is what's causing this to fail. If possible, I would suggest disabling the "router" functionality of your modem and have it strictly act as it should, a modem. That way your WRT routers can obtain the public IP addresses assigned by your ISP directly and remote management should work with ease.

    If of course disabling this functionality of your modem isn't an option, then what you are going to need to do is login to the management interface of the modem and forward ports 8083 and 8082 respectively, to the IP address that WRT routers have obtained from the modem.

    Yes, it's the DSL modem/router

    Yeah, I called my ISP who shipped the pre-programmed modem to me, and they said it's set up as a router. They are not going to chnage their settings, and if I want, I can get the "professional" pakcage, where they can do that for me (extra $15/month for the service).

    Does anybody know how to get into a wideye DSL modem/router? Or how do you bring it back to factory defaults?
