Default Re: Port forwardin help.?

Is the Netgear still available? If so, try swapping back to it and see if it starts working.

I'm also wondering if maybe the Dlink is just giving the machine you are using as a server a different _internal_ IP address (probably a 192.168.0.x address) then your Netgear was giving it. It may be that you are properly forwarding the right port to the wrong internal IP.

Oh, one other thing...your external IP may have changed when you swapped the netgear to the dlink. Just wanted to verify that you got that address from ipchicken after the dlink went in. (I'd never heard of ipchicken before...always use whatismyip.com myself.)
