I have xfinityTG862G modem (I have it bridged and do not use the router) and a dlink 880L stand alone router. My DDNS shows up and is active.
I have all my ports, that matter, forwarded (I belive correctly).
When I go into "canyouseeme" it says my port 80 is closed.
Xfinity says they are not blocking the port.
How can I solve this issue?
thanks

Since port 80 is the default HTTP port, it is usually not smart to have it open to the internet for a home user. It is possible that your router may reserve port 80 for it's internal usage which may be why forwarding it isn't working. It is also possible that it may be correctly forwarded to something on your network but there is no application listening on port 80.
