Post 2 screen shots for me.

1. A screen shot of the port forwarding page in the router
2. A screen shot of the results of my port tester program.

You dont need to block out local ips, they are safe to post, I need to see that it is the right IP in the rule. You can also only forward a port to one device at a time, so remove the other rules and only have one rule pointing to your computer for that port :wink:

Then post 2 updated screen shots for me, dont block out the IPs, only internet IPs are accessible from the internet, not local ips.

Look at #7 on here
http://www.pcwintech.com/common-problems-fixes-port-forwarding

Check to see if you have multiple device names listed. That router forwards based on device name and not IP and also doesnt play nice with a machine with a static IP on it. It is a known bug in those firmwares.
