Connecting to my router when away from home

Is it possible to connect to my home network via the router when away from home?

Yes, it is. You will need to setup remote access and open the firewall. I don't have the details on me at the moment, but it can be done.

As long as you realise that a gateway for you is a possible a gateway for other unwelcome visitors. Make sure you use strong passwords to secure the backdoor you create.

I totally misunderstood the question and I know feel stupid. I'll stay out of these techy questions next time. Smiley Wink
