Hi need some help with portforwarding

I currently have a wireless isp and trying to port forward battle.net and moddernwarfare ports,getting server dissconnected ingame sometimes.
I tried using port forward network utilities but the app picks up that my first routers ip is the dish on my roof (ubiquiti) and my second router(Tenda F9) is the one in my house i tried forwarding all the ports on the tenda router but still no luck, i changed my ip to static allso resetted my network and allowed in my firewall for public and private to battle.net and moddernwarfare allso asked my ISP(friend) if he can forward the ports for me he replied later i can test it now i see in my setting ingame it shows NET STAT is moderate and not opened is there something else i can try? i used network utilities to check if my ports are open for example port 1119 and it shows closed but it picks up the ip of the dish on the roof and not the one inside my house that i made static?

Some help would be much aprecciated
 
So first do you have a public IP on the router on the roof. If the IP you see in the wan the same as sites like whatsmyip. If not you have no hope since there is another router owned by the ISP also doing nat.

Best if you could find a way to only have 1 router. Either run the one on the roof as a bridge or the tenda as a AP.

Other wise you need to set the wan ip on your tenda to a fixed static IP. Then set a DMZ rule in the roof router pointing to that IP. Then you should be able to do normal port forwarding on the tenda router.

i checked now my ip on the roof is different as the one on my router wan. the ip on roof starts with 41. and the one on my router wan starts with 192.

Is there another method i can try? like the AP you mentioned to do myself or must the isp come out to do it?
i checked the default gateway for the one on roof ubiquiti but need username and password as for the isp wont provide that info for me :(

Running AP mode likely is as simple as setting the option in your router. Otherwise search how to use a router as a AP. It is actually trivial even on routers that do not support AP mode.

Still that will only solve the problem if you can get access to the ubiquiti router. You need to put port forwarding rules into that router.

Contact the ISP and see if they can place that device into bridge mode. It should then assign the 41.x.x.x ip to your wan port of your current router and normal port forwarding will work.

Otherwise see what they will do about putting in port forwarding rules for you. I suspect they will not want to deal with that.
