I ended up having to chuck out my old router (DI-604) because it keep locking up. Sad because it was a good router otherwise. It was really easy to do whatever needed to be done. This new linksys WRT45G however, is super annoying. Here's what i've done: Port forwarding didn't work at all. So I put the computer on the DMZ. I scan some ports with canyouseeme.org. Nothing. It says connection refused. Then I scan my external ip with nmap. After I scan it, I find ports from 300 up or so to 1661 open. I'm like ok, DMZ works but nmap didn't show me that port 21, 22, 80 were open, but after the scan with nmap, canyouseeme.org did. And then guess what. My router locks up completely. Power cycled it. Slowly came back on. Removed the DMZ, and forwarded SSH, FTP, HTTP, smtp, pop3. I scan myself again with nmap. Those ports are not closed, just FILTERED. FILTERED ARGH! I just forwarded them. At least there not closed though. is there anything else I can do to forward ports. I'm not using DMZ it was just a test. I'm not using any software firewalls btw. And the router is v6 And this stuff didn't work before I upgraded the firmware, so I can't downgrade. Guess what? Even now the router is giving me a blank page! I'm going to have to reset for the billionth time today. Oh joy..
