You need to open the ports. i have echolink on multiple computers. I have in my router the same port forwarding configuration to EACH COMPUTER, disabling all computers EXCEPT the one I want at the time.

Hi Folks, hope someone can help me. I recently purchased a LinkSys
WRT54G wireless router to set up my home network. I am using a PC and
laptop. The laptop has a built in network card. DELL Inspiron 6000.
Echolink works fine on my PC (directly connected to the internet thru
the router). I have downloaded and installed a fresh new copy of
Echolink from EL website on my laptop. I put in my call
sign/password and everything came up right away. EXCEPT, I cannot
connect to anyone. It fetches the data, shows alarms, favorites etc,
but will not connect to anyone.
I have tried forwarding the ports to the laptop, but no luck. I
followed the directions for the "applications/gaming" section of the
router setup. When I forward the ports to the laptop, the program
does not connect to anyone on the PC. It will also not connect from
the laptop. When I disable "port forwarding" alltogether Echolink
works fine again on the PC but not on the laptop. It connects, shows
all the information and I can talk. Whenever I try to connect on the
laptop, it gives me a "timeout" after 30 seconds even to the Echotest
Could there be something in the laptop causing this problem? I
downloaded and installed SKYPE, YM, AIM, MSN Messenger and a few
others, that all worked right out of the box on both computers with
no settings changed in the router. They just worked.
I would really like to get Echolink working on my Laptop. Has anyone
else had this same problem? If so, what steps did you take to solve
I would appreciate any input on this matter.
Thanks, and best of 73's, de,
