D-Link DGL-4500 Gaming setting

This will allow you to open a single port or a range of ports.


Enable:Check this box to enable the rule.

Name:Enter a name for the rule or select an application from the drop-down menu. Select an application and click << to populate the fields.

IP Address:Enter the IP address of the computer on your local network that you want to allow the incoming service to. If your computer is receiving an IP address automatically from the router (DHCP), you computer will be listed in the “Computer Name” drop-down menu. Select your computer and click <<. TCP/UDP:Enter the TCP and/or UDP port or ports that you want to open. You can enter a single port or a range of ports. Separate ports with a common.Example: 24,1009,3000-4000 Schedule:The schedule of time when the Virtual Server Rule will be enabled. The schedule may be set to Always, which will allow the particular service to always be enabled. You can create your own times in the Tools > Schedules section.

Inbound Filter:Select Allow All (most common) or a created Inbound filter. You may create your own inbound filters in the Advanced > Inbound Filter page.

D-Link DGL-4500 GameFuel setting:

The GameFuel option helps improve your network gaming performance by prioritizing applications. By default the GameFuel settings are disabled and application priority is not classified automatically.


Enable GameFuel:This option is disabled by default. Enable this option for better performance and experience with online games and other interactive applications, such as VoIP.

Automatic Classification:This option is enabled by default. This will allow your router to automatically determine the network priority of running programs.

Dynamic Fragmentation:This option should be enabled when you have a slow Internet uplink. It helps to reduce the impact that large low priority network packets can have on more urgent ones.

Automatic Uplink Speed:This option is enabled by default when the GameFuel option is enabled. This option will allow your router to automatically determine the uplink speed of your Internet connection.

Measured Uplink Speed:This displays the detected uplink speed.

Manual Uplink Speed:The speed at which data can be transferred from the router to your ISP. This is determined by your ISP. ISP’s often speed as a download/upload pair. For example, 1.5Mbits/284Kbits. Using this example, you would enter 284. Alternatively you can test your uplink speed with a service such as

Connection Type:By default, the router automatically determines whether the underlying connection is an xDSL/Frame-relay network or some other connection type (such as cable modem or Ethernet), and it displays the result as Detected xDSL or Frame Relay Network. If you have an unusual network connection in which you are actually connected via xDSL but for which you configure either “Static” or “DHCP” in the Internet settings, setting this option to xDSL or Other Frame Relay Network ensures that the router will recognize that it needs to shape traffic slightly differently in order to give the best performance. Choosing xDSL or Other Frame Relay Network causes the measured uplink speed to be reported slightly lower than before on such connections, but gives much better results.

Detected xDSL:When Connection Type is set to automatic, the automatically detected connection type is displayed here.
