    Hi Fionavar

    It looks like you have 2 routers. Probably one supplied by you and one by your ISP.
    It also looks like you are trying to GM from more than one computer? Generally this does create issues. You can only port forward a specific port to one computer at one time.

    Anyway... log onto 172.16.1.254 and set a port forward rule there to forward tcp 1802 to 172.16.1.65
    Im guessing though that 172.16.1.65 is dynamic - you probably want to set a DHCP reservation for your router n the ISP router and set a DHCP reservation for your PC on your Router

    I appreciate this feedback - the confusing thing is I have used WiFi and such on 3 rigs with this setup. It is only now that this is occurring. I always prefer hard lines, but thought I would check as this is new for wifi

    What router are the other devices connecting to when they are on Wifi and they work?
    My guess is they are connected to the ISP router.

    All have been connected to the ISP router. All previous rigs have worked with WiFi - wired and wireless with the 1802 exception. I am stumped - and admit - this aspect of FG is most challenging.

    This one is NOT connected to the ISP router.
    This one is connected to the other router.

    I do not understand this reply?

    Draw it on a piece of paper.

    [internet] ----- [isp router] ----- [your router] ----- [new pc]

    Your PC has 192.168.1.89 on the LAN
    (this is connected to the LAN side of your router)

    Your router has 192.168.1.1 ip on the LAN
    Your router has 172.16.1.65 ip on the WAN
    (this is connected on its WAN side to the LAN side of the ISP router)

    Your ISP router has 172.16.1.254 on the LAN
    and has something else (public ip) on the WAN
    (this is connected to your ISP/Internet on its WAN side

    Where is your computer?
    It has to pass thru your Router AND the ISP Router
    Both are messing with the ports by doing NAT

    Okay - I admit to ignorance on this. What do I do to fix this? Is it possible to make this work? The weird thing is that it worked fine on a different notebook just last week!

    Update - got it! I had to on My ISP Router assign the port opening as well as in the wifi router! Well that was interesting.Thanks for your patience damned!

    Well done Fionavar

    Make sure you reread post #81 because if either your PC address or you Router IP address changes then it will stop working.
