Port forwarding not working

Port forwarding table set up identically to Linksys router. Cannot open any port. I have 5 webcams with static Ips each using a unique port. Latest firmware: V1.1.0.32_1.0.1. Cams all work fine with lan IP address. TIA.

Re: Port forwarding not working

Sorry, I thought I had closed this thread. The problem was that my cameras were still configured the the other router's gateway address. Once I changed the cameras' settings, everything worked. Many thanks to Netgear tech support who spent an hour on the phone to find my problem.

Re: Port forwarding not working

Be sure that uPnP is disabled on the router if your using PF configurations.

 

Besure your ISP Modem doesn't have a built in router. Bridge it if it does.

Should work ok if you have the PF configured correctly.

Looks good to me. Is it necessary to reserve the ports in the LAN setup? I tried that. The cameras kept losing frames and I still couldn't open the port. So I deleted the reserve table.

Hi nigelburnett,

 

Can you check the IP address of the router if it is 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1.
