Port Opening on Netgear DG834PN not working dispite trying everything.

Pretty much what the title says I've tried to open ports on this modem/router for years and it never ever works. I've followed the portfoward guide and tryed there program and nothing.

What can i try? Can easily give any details needed.

  • What program needs to open ports? Do you know the exact port numbers and if it is UDP, TCP or UDP/TCP?
  • To see if you doing it right, open an arbitrary port (lets say port 1999 TCP. Then use a port scanner to check if that port is really open. I use often Gibson's Shield UP

No packets are reaching any port scanners. Tried ports i've "opened" in port scanners before they just say there not open. Even though i've done everything in modem that the portforward guide has told me.

What browser are you using for configuring the DG834?? If you use Microsoft Internet Explorer you should be OK. Some other browsers have issues with Netgear device menu settings. Make sure you clear the cache and refresh the page when setting up a DG834. Sometimes you are configuring a menu page of a router or modem-router by using a "cached" page, meaning, the changes you have made to the settings do not actually occur. HTH

I use firefox but for changing the router/modem i use internet explorer checked it in IE and FF and its exactly the same. Still nothing works. My internet also randomly cuts out for 5 seconds every like 4 hours if that has anything to do with it?

Re: Port Opening on Netgear DG834PN not working dispite trying everything.

Again, most important to perform menu settings after cache and sometimes also history has been cleared. Then start browser again and make your changes.
If you are sure your device does not accept any port forwarding rules, then it becomes time to reflash the firmware and start with a fresh new image in your device.

"internet cuts out" is not very informative.
Problem with wireless or also wired connection?
Try to ping wired to router a responsive IP such as 4.2.2.2 to establish if your modem is online or not.
