WNDR3700v3 Not port Forwarding

Hi! I have my 2nd PC wired to my WNDR3700v3, but the port forwarding is not working. I put in the proper port and IP address of my PC, but the port is still closed.

How can I fix this? It's preventing me from enjoying a bunch of my software.

Make sure that WAN/Internet port of the router has public IP ( ISP released ip)

Under router status in the router GUI

As long it is not 192.x or 10.x ip then you should have public ip

If still doesnt work try to connect your computer to the modem and check the ports are still closed. If its closed then better contact ISP to open it.
