Hello all. I have been trying to get port forwarding going for 3 days with my d link DIR-628 router. Ive been checking to see if my changes to my dlink settings have taken effect at this web site and many similar. http://www.canyouseeme.org/ . I usually type in my local ip number into my browser. that takes me to the dlink login page. then i go to advanced -> port forwarding, and i add in my local ip address and specify the port numbers for tcp and udp. I save the settings and restart. Then i go check and no matter what i do the ports will not open!! i cant stand it. I close all firewalls too. Is there something i should know about this that was in the dlink fine print. Please help before i go mad.
