Frustrating port forwarding problem

    Hi guys,

    I've been trying to solve this issue for hours, without success. I took a look at all FAQs, existing discussions.

    I want to setup port forwarding on my WRT54GS w/ Tomato 1.07. Everything works fine with the laptop directly connected on the ADSL line. As soon as I try to do the same thing via the router, my port is blocked. Here's my setup:

    Your help would be appreciated. Is there any tool that I could use to identify the issue?

    By the way, the running UPNP config is for another computer.

    Regards,
    Yan

    1. is your windows firewall configured to allow traffic on that port?
    2. did you reset to default settings after flashing tomato?

    All my firewalls are off, including the Windows one. The proof is that the port test doesn't fail when connecting the adsl modem directly on my laptop.

    No, I didn't reset to default settings. Should I? Which parameter (other than the posted screenshots) could cause this issue?

    Hi,

    try to only setup the external ports (on port forwarding page) and leave the fields for internal ports empty. On the upnp page you only setup your desktop but not your laptop check this !

    Have you tried the torrent application and does it give you a firewall error ? Maybe there is something about the test website that Tomato does not like.

    I don't want to use UPnP, I want to use static port forwarding.

    Yes, I see a yellow warning icon meaning that I have a problem with my network config.

    Are you clicking Save on the Port Forwarding page? I don't mean to state the obvious but I think that is something many overlook. Because in Tomato you have to enter the address then click okay, but then ALSO scroll down to the bottom and click on the save button on the right. I've made this mistake myself before.

    Ok guys, I found the problem. My ******** modem was in fact acting as a router even if there's only one RJ45 port. I configured it as a bridge, modified my router WAN settings and voilà! Everything's green now in utorrent.
