Dating dsl wannado
While that is a nice feature, it kind of goes overboard and it won't let me do what I wanna do with my router.I can't do anything to my router without it turning off all of my internet access.
My husband told me he was getting pop ups and that we needed... I also checked with HJT but dont found nothing bad there. This is a little late, but after scouring the forums and wading through router menus all day I finally figured out what the issue I (and possibly some of you) was having.Everything was correctly forwarded in the router settings, but the port still wasn't being shown as open.I have been getting so close to making the server i want but the thing with mine is when i port forward (i use linksys) i enter the 1 in the last slot and it says i cant use it. If its ex; x.x.x.88 then port forward port 25565 UDP/TCP Both ways to static ip x.x.x.88 Keep in mind the x.x.x.I see in all the videos how everyone's works but i don't know how i'm supposed to use the 1 in the slot. I have been getting so close to making the server i want but the thing with mine is when i port forward (i use linksys) i enter the 1 in the last slot and it says i cant use it. Ex: x.x.x.1 ip 1 is most likely your router/modem your trying to... is the first 3 octects, ill assume its a 192.168.1.Have you tried accessing the USB storage device using both connections.
Please try a different computer and see if you can replicate the issue or not.
Your gonna wanna do static ip routing, basically assign ON YOUR PC for the network configurations a ip of whatever matches your network.
(ill assume for sake of argument its a 192.168.1.1 network) so assign it i'd say 192.168.1.3 or higher (last digit with 3 can be anything) im assuming ip x.x.x.1 and x.x.x.2 is reserved for your modem/router (if its linked) or for your actual computer that has DHCP currently enabled (the one your using). Afterwards thats when you can use that port forwarding screen to input your pc's STATIC IP and then put in the port to forward (make sure to select both or create two routes for UDP and TCP network) Save it, and that should be it, assuming your firewall isn't blocking anything, and your ISP supports port forwarding to say a personal pc or server (ex: in this case minecraft) you should be fine.
Apparently the modem I'm using (Motorola) that is connected to the router ALSO has a port forwarding and firewall option that I've never needed to use.
The address for this is 192.168.100.1, and the default name and password for motorola modems is admin/motorola.
Google your modems model number to figure out how to do this. Usually under the "Status" section of the routers adminstrator page. Assuming you did everything by the book your only problem is just like mine: Call your isp and ask them to open up port 25565 so you can host a minecraft server for your friends on the other side of the planet.
