Default Port Forward Fail?

I've opened ports 6112-6119 on my router's port forwarding to my computer's IP Address. I've also gone into TCP/IP and set the IP Address as static. On my router I set up a DMZ server to my computer's IP. I've un-installed AVG, Spybot, and turned Microsoft Firewall off yet when I test if my port is open (on PFPortChecker) it says it's not.

Default Re: Port Forward Fail?

Do you mean Microsoft Firewall? Or is there another I'm not aware of?

edit: I fixed the problem. My interned was connected this way:

Modem -> Phone Adapter and Router -> Router -> Computer

I didn't realize until now that the phone adapter was a router and this router wasn't forwarding ports. So I just switched the two routers. Now my computer runs parallel to the phone.
