Port forwarding not working on WRT54G

    I know it's a played out problem, but i'm having a terrible time getting my NAT errors to go away in Azureus.

    I know that I need to forward ports, and I know where to go to do that, but for some reason, no matter what port I open on the router, It still remains closed in actuality. Closed to not only Azureus, but also port scanning sites.

    It is a WRT54G V3 hooked to a Netopia Cayman 3341-CTEL DSL modem which has very limited configuration features.

    Windows Firewall is disabled, the modem's firewalling features are disabled completely, and I have also tried disabling all of the router's firewalling and WAN request blocking. Even though the modem and windows firewalls are disabled, I also still opened the ports in both of those places to no avail.

    After all of this it seems apparent that the problem lies with the router itself somehow. Any ideas?

    (and yes I upgraded the firmware to the latest linksys version, and then to Hyperwrt 2.1b1 + Thibor15c, both resulting in no changes in my problem)

    Is your modem in bridge mode or is it doing NAT as well as the router? In bridge mode the router would handle PPoE otherwise the modem is handling it.

    So, if the modem isn't in bridge mode then you would have to setup port forwarding on the modem to forward the ports you want to open to the IP address of your router. Then you would have to forward the same ports on your router to the IP of whatever computer.

    If the modem is in bridge mode and the router is handling everything, then you'd only have to setup port forwarding on the router to the IP address of the computer.
