Thread Starter 
can i set it up the other way, enabling DMZ on the router with the modems IP. and maybe disable everything on the router except wireless and whats needed for that?

because i only need the router for my laptop, the modem has better settings in it in my opinion

worst that can happen is it doesn't work, and you lose access to your web interfaces. but that is what reset buttons are for I say give it a shot!

ok you did change the ip of your router with the one I suggested earlier?
Did you set a static ip on your pc? Coz you'll need a static on your pc for the portforwarding to work.

Log in to your ISP provided modem/router manually and lookaround in there to see if you can find a DMZ, Static NAT, or Default Server section. Different routers have different names for their DMZ section.
Now, enable a DMZ, Static NAT, or Default Server to point at your your second router's WAN or External IP address.
This should allow traffic to flow directly through the first modem/router to the second one.
From there, follow the normal port forwarding procedure on your second router and you should be good to go.
It's important to note, that both routers that you may be running might also run additional firewalls.
If you are looking to port forward, you are going to need to disable your routers' firewalls, if they have them, to get your ports to test forwarded.

Then If you do not have at least two game consoles behind your router, turn off UPnP in the router.
By game console, a special type of computerwith no keyboard or mouse (and it/they areusually connected to a TV).

You can also convert the router into the correct device by disabling the router function and using it as just an ethernet switch or wireless access point.
Here's how to convert it

Make sure that you either use the DMZ method, or the conversion method, but do not confuse the two.

tried all of this multiple times, some worked as far as letting me online, but didnt fix the game NAT problem. others worked but since the router was WAP i couldnt connect to it with ethernet.

so i just reset the router and modem, its just that 1 game that has problems. and its old anyway, hopefully the new one works fine



thx for the time and help, will add rep

what game is it? Did you disable you windows firewall? Remember each game have a different port to forward. Why not download the pfconfig utility from portforward.com and just choose the game. It will do the pf automatically

It probably uses a port that's blocked by default

4 days to just now figure out the problem is Firewall issue, not NAT, not any of the bull****crap you had the OP do to his system.

Tip OP if your system is connecting to the internet and all other sites you only have a firewall issue, determine the IP you are trying to connect to (game server IP) cheap easy fix...allow all ports and protocols to that IP. More restrictive approach only allow the port and protocol the Game Server uses...i.e. example allow 10.10.1.10 tcp 53
