Routing via Windows XP

hhmm.. sometime you may want to have windows XP as gateway instead of linux…

the reason might be varies.. depend on the current situation you’re having .

let’s start.

go to Start > run >

type regedit … press Ok.

something as below should appear..

browse to HKEY_CURRENT_MACHINE]\\ regedit2.PNG

right click at IPEnableRouter -> Modify … change the value to 1.

as this pic.

i think have to reboot your machine after changing those registry before it can be

effective.. else log out and log in back also can work..

hmm.. now connect the U-Mobile or your modem to internet what so ever.

then.. need to setup internet connection sharing for this modem with other network device..

go to Start -> Connect -> All Connection

net.PNG

then..  i think just have to follow this sequence

network-ics.png

this will assign the ip of 192.168.0.1 to the selected network device straight away..

but if you want to change also can..

after clicking yes…

go back to the that network device properties..

at tcp/ip .. put in your desired ip.. and netmask.. but leave the gateway as blank..

from other pc.. can use this ip as gateway ip address.

from linux.. system-config-network..

set static ip.. and the ip of windows xp as gateway

    The problem is:

    1) Most aunty and uncle types will never know how to log into their router and disable it. Not entirely a big problem as they are okay with the default settings, BUT …

    2) … At that time, TM set a standard “admin123” (not exact word) password, i.e. standard easy-to-guess password on all router.

    So the big hoo haa is not that TM can remote admin your router, the big hoo haa is that someone else can remote admin your router.

    For router, the impact is not so significant, worse case they can get into your personal data and copy out.

    But let’s say similar situation exists with the phone VOIP/SIP setup. So if someone “borrows” your account and makes IDD calls … and billed to you, you would not be quiet …

    ALSO … it turned out later that whether the password is standard and simple, or unique and complicated makes no difference.

    There’s a bug in the firmware of that router that lets someone remotely download the settings without having to provide an administrator id and password! 😎

    haha.. that’s make sense to either replace this DLink DIR-615 or change it to support use custom router instead.

    However , TM had disabled it from the menu by now.
    plain locked up ? was thinking is it worth to re-flash with original firmware or not just because some script inside /www/bsc_wan.php got commented out?

    I think original dlink firmware doesn’t have the pppoe over vlan support. this I’ve custom done for tm.

    And so far if you flash it with dd-wrt, tv stops working.

    the other way is to set it to bridged mode + vlan tagging, and use back your old router. or is that the option tm disabled?
