WGR612 portforwarding problems! please help, urgent!

ohai there, name is Crypt3r and new here 😛 mainly signed up to ask this question that might be so easy to solve, but here goes!


So i'm trying to open ports on my WGR612 router, i go to the "Port Forwarding"
and enter the port and the ip address "192.168.1.2" which is my ipv4/lan address, and then enter both TCP/UDP, and saving it, then i go to canyouseeme.org and check if i have that port open, but it turns out i haven't,
and i have tried using a static IP and i'm still using that, and NAT is open, but could it have something to do with that the internet cable first goes into a VoIP box, and there after into the router?


Thank You in advance

Re: WGR612 portforwarding problems! please help, urgent!

Does the router show a Public IP address or a Private IP address in the ‘Router Status’ page;

Do you have details (manufacturer / model number) for the VoIP box?
What kind of modem or Internet connection do you have?
Is your Netgear router actually a WGR614?

The 192.168.115.xxx IP address is a Private IP address, this means that the Linksys box is doing some Network Address Translation. This link suggests that it is also a router;

And so you have some options, the easiest might be to configure the Netgear router as an access point e.g. http://support.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/965
