Port forwarding Linksys+Arris

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I have a Linksys WRT310n and the ISP's Arris TG862(with Arris firmware). I'm having difficulty port forwarding. As of now, I have the Arris in bridged mode with DHCP, UPnP, wireless and firewall off. My PC has a static IP with a connection to the Linksys and the DNS is Google's. I've tried using canyouseeme.org with ports 80, 6112, 6119 and 11100, but they all failed due to time out or, very seldom, refused connection.

Some other notes that might help:
The Linksys shows the ISP's DNSs.
When the Arris is bridged, the Linksys gives me a completely different Internet IP address than the Arris does. Also, I can't log in to the Arris unless I reset it.
I've reset the Linksys to factory settings and only changed the router's IP, turned off wireless, single port forwarded 11100, range forwarded 6112-6119, and set a password.
The Linksys is using Firmware Version: v1.0.10.

Thanks for your help and suggestions.

When you're in bridge-mode, what WAN IP does the linksys show? Make sure it is showing your WAN IP so you know you are in-fact in bridge mode.

Please post a screenshot of your port-forward settings so I can make sure they are correct.

It is showing the public IP as Internet IP Address on the router.

What OS is the server? Did you make an incoming rule on it to allow? Windows defaults to block all incoming connections.

Sorry for the late reply, I was busy with finals.

I use Windows 7. All of my forwarding was fine until I switched ISPs; I do have rules to allow the ports for the programs.

I have had similiar issues with ARRIS gateways and have been told on many occasions by Comcast that unless a static IP is payed for that the gateway will not work in a truly bridged mode or pass through mode. I fought with it for a week and finally gave up and just forwarded the port from the modem/gateway and it worked like a charm but I was still really butthurt.

I had originally tried to forward the modem, but that didn't work for me, forcing me to try and bridge it. Do you happen to remember what you did to forward for it?

I had mine in passive mode so that I could have a wireless router on the inside (which it was a miracle that it even worked) and then just did the port forwarding on the modem itself. With that particular modem though it might be different. It might need to be set in gateway mode in order for it to work. Also worth mentioning that I was working with business class internet with a business I help out and that residential is a little different. But that modem is very similar to ones used in the business class I think the firmware just might be a little different.
