That is an odd local IP address lol.

Port forwarding rule is correct though, so in the router find what WAN or Internet IP it has, does it match the IP on this page?

I don't think so Shane,here is the deal:
I have a device called Nano station M5 which can be set to bridge mode or router mode.
I have the device set to bridge mode and connected to my router.
and there is no DMZ option when the device is on bridge mode.
here is a screenshot

EDIT:you know I think I get it now
this is my connection
ISP's router----> My bridge -----> my router

so I think that it's my ISP that should enable DMZ on his router right?

If it was in bridge mode then the TP-Link would have your internet IP address. But it doesnt it got a local IP from the nano station. If the nano station is from your ISP you may have to call them. The goal is to either get the internet IP to the TP-Link or at least get a form of DMZ pointing tot he TP-link :wink:
