Alright guys, I’m quite tired of this. I’ve tried portforwarding for about a year now for gmod and XBox Live with absolutely no luck whatsoever . It’s not the numbers or the concept that confuses me its just my position which is this. I’m running my Dedicated Server on my laptop (Acer Aspire 6930, Home Premium 64-Bit Vista, 4 gigs of RAM) which has Firewall turned off and the servers ports both typed passed through. This Christmas I got me a new Netgear router (tell me if you need the exact model) it’s a wireless N-300 so I thought it would do me better then my gay linksys. Sadly it did nothing but make the price higher. I tried and tried to follow portfowarding.com’s tutorials for Steams stuff but I got confused since Im running it on my laptop I dont know which IP to put in there. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, give me something here. Is it possible not to be able to even have your ports fowarded? Because this all started with me wanting to connect to one friend that lives literally 2 miles down the road but yet it persist to shut me down with portfowarding I think I do right but.
Other Info: My Desktop that has my router connected to it is crap. My mother uses it for her things and loaded it with McAfee. This may have something to do with it. PLEASE tell me soemthing I’m here and beleive me I know exactly what you tell me I’m pretty good with computer lingo so just give me a try.
For any help you do offer me, thanks in advance!
BTW: I did the same for my desktops firewall and if need be I will take a screenshot of the portfowarding page. AND ON ANOTHER NOTE ALL THE SERVERS I TRY TO JOIN SAY SERVERS NOT RESPONDING!!! What isn’t wrong with it -.-
