R7000 Port Forwarding help

Hi, I need help setting up my router for the proper Port forwarding for Destiny 2 on Steam. I have attached the information that Bungie has supplied for the proper ports. I have done this myself and am still experiencing issues. The error code I get is called "weasel.". The best description I can find of this error is that there's some some sort of packet loss occuring. It seems too consistent though. No get the error code right around every 2 hours on the dot. I have Xfinity as my ISP. What happens in game is that I get disconnected from the servers for the game. The annoying part is I know it has nothing to do with my internet because all other devices connected to the internet experience zero issues when this happens.

   _What_, exactly, have you done yourself?  Actual port-forwarding
rules?  What have you done to ensure that the target server always has
the proper IP address?   Any useful information at all might help.

Re: R7000 Port Forwarding help

I've done the Port forwarding rules in the firewall settings and my router etc. Not sure what you mean by making sure the target server has the proper I'd address. What info can you give me about that?

   _Which_ "the Port forwarding rules"?  Your confidence in my psychic
powers is gratifying, but wholely misplaced.

 

   You've posted a picture showing a bunch of numbers for a bunch of
different platforms.  Should I know which one(s) interest you?  Should I
know the actual port-forwarding rules which you might have created based
on whichever set that might be?

   When _I_ create a port-forwarding rule, it contains a LAN IP address.
With my weak psychic powers, I still can't see your port-forwarding
rules, but I'd guess that yours also contain an IP address.  What is it?
And that's the IP address of what, exactly?  And is it always the same?
And what did you do to ensure that?


   A problem description like, "I did a bunch of (invisible) stuff which
made sense to me, but it doesn't work" is not a useful problem
description.  It conveys no useful information.

    Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and look
for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Read.  Look for "Set Up Port
Forwarding to a Local Server".
