Setup Port Forwarding Netgear | What Can Disrupt The Procedure?

If you use an online port tester instead of a port tester program, this feature of Netgear may not work. You can use two routers maximum. But, if you use multiple routers, you will be unable to setup port forwarding. Also, when you use a wrong IP address in the port forwarding process, it will not work.

In the case of Windows, Linux, and Mac, antivirus packages have built-in firewalls. Therefore, these packages may block a program from connecting with the net. This problem can emerge with corrupted and broken Windows firewall as well. If the setting of WAN or the internet connection in your router is wrong, the port forwarding will not work.

Your router may list your computer’s name multiple times and set a different IP for each computer name points. Your router can set a port which is already existing in another forwarding rule. DMZ is an ‘open all ports rule’. When you enable it and it is not pointing to the machine you want the ports to open for, the same issue will crop up.
