Ok so, trying to set up my old school D-Link DI-604 router for Borderlands. I know what ports I need to open, so I went ahead and opened them. Running a port checker says there still closed. I followed all the steps here
and still no go. I tried using 3rd party software that sets it up, another no.
So whats my problem? well I thought it might be my lack of a static IP address. so I followed These steps
. However, when I check my IP with any random IP checker I get some weird IP. I set it for 192.168.0.103 but when I check it using an external checker I get my IP as 184.108.40.206.
I havent really messed with this stuff in like five years so I'm lost here. Any help you guys could provide would be greatly appricated. Thanks in advance
Also, I called up my ISP and got the propber DNS servers. And completely turned Windows Firewall off. At this point instead of timing out when I use port checkers the connection is getting refused
GT: Tanky the Tank
Black: 1377 6749 7425
its not just with Borderlands though. No port checkers I use seem to get through.
I almost feel like it would be a good idea to go out and buy a cheapo $20 Belkin from Wal-Mart and see if its the 6 year old router just not wanting to work with newer stuff.
