I cannot port forward my minecraft server after i got my Nighthawk MR60 and set up mesh wifi.

I used to be able to run a minecraft server on my laptop but when I bought a MR60 router with 2 MS60 satellites i couldnt port forward one anymore ive tried many things to run one but my friends couldnt join my ipv4 format is xx.x.x.x and my public ip xx.xxx.xxx.xxx doesnt work is there any way around this ive tried almost everything.

Are you using it as your main router, or do you have it behind any kind of gateway device or anything else that will cause a double NAT?

   Firmware version?  Connected to what?

   "couldn[']t" is not a useful problem description. It does not say
what you did.  It does not say what happened when you did it.  As usual,
showing actual actions (commands) with their actual results (error
messages, LED indicators, ...) can be more helpful than vague
descriptions or interpretations.


   "anymore?  Did something like this work in the past?  What's
different now?

 

> [...] i[']ve tried many things ro run one [...]

 

   Swell.  How many of them do you think that the non-psychics in your
audience can see?


> [...] ive tried almost everything.

 

   Could be worse.  If you _had_ tried everything, then there'd be no
hope.

   See "not a useful problem description [...]", above.

   What's an "ipv4 format"?  Do you mean "IP[v4] _address_"?  _You_,
personally, have an IP address, or some network interface on some gizmo
you have has one?  Note: A router typically has two IP addresses, so
what you mean is unclear for multiple reasons.  Perhaps you should
explain how you got whatever you got, rather than invent novel technical
terms to describe it.

 

> [...] and my public ip [address] xx.xxx.xxx.xxx doesnt work [...]

 

   Regarding "doesn[']t work", see "not a useful problem description
[...]", above.

 

   How much useful information do you think that "xx.x.x.x" or
"xx.xxx.xxx.xxx" conveys to the non-psychics in your audience?

 

   There's no reason to hide a private LAN address.


   If you're worried about revealing secrets (like, say, a public IP
address), then the top half of the address, "a.b" out of "a.b.c.d",
would satisfy most of my curiosity.  Or, plug that address into the form
at: https://whois.arin.net/ , and see if it is a public or private
address.
