OK, so far you have done everything correctly, but it still isnt working.

So next, in the router find the page that shows what WAN IP the router has, does it match the IP on this page?

OK that is the problem then, your ISP might have you behind a 2nd network and so port forwarding wont work.

In order to get out of that 2nd network you have to buy a static internet IP from your ISP. The only way they can give you a static internet IP is by taking you out of that 2nd network :wink:

ISP = Internet Service Provider

They control how the connection gets to you and you have no control over that. So you either have to buy a static IP (Which normally is $10 depending on who your ISP is) or you will have to use a VPN to get around it.

Which I havent done so I dont know how to do it, but this should help
