I've been trying to port forward for a few days now, and I can't seem to get anything to work. I have the Netgear WNDR4500v3 router, with a public IP address, a static IP with mine reserved, and firewall turned off (PC and Router) but still cant get any ports to forward. Anyone know why this could be? I've been researching for a while now and no one seems to have the exact same issue as me
Could be your ISP - is restricting the ability to port forward; without them allowing you you won't be able to do it successfully... I'd start with searching: "ISP - port forward" or "ISP port forward issues" - many times others will have this problem and you'll see the possibilities in the threads... Sometimes you'll have to call your ISP and specifically ask them.
