how to forward port with two routers?
ive got a speedtouch 536 (modem) and a dlink dir300(wireless router), but when i try to forward ports it doesnt work, i got so frustrated that i took out the dlink wireless router, and guess what, the ports forwarded perfectly, how can i get the ports to forward while i have both connected? if any more info is needed just ask

Without the router, the ports aren't technically being forwarded, the modem just is connecting you directly without performing the network address translation (NAT) which the router serves to do.
You could look on the sites below to see how to forward ports for your specific router.Source(s): http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwar... http://www.practicallynetworked.com
