Port Forward Issues While Configuring Routers


Let us come put our focus on the most common issues and how to solve them

a) User behind more than one router: Most common problem occurs when the user is behind two or more routers but does not know that. We can simply check that by logging into our router settings and go to the status page which shows the addresses of all the layers your data is passing through.

b) The IP address should be same as the ISP address that shows up in the port tester page. If it is not (some Internet Service Providers put people behind a proxy to block p2p) it may be a local IP address, which means the address from a different router.

c) In the case shown the gateway address is same as the other router's IP address.

d) Using this address we can to log into our 2nd router just like we did with our current router. So in this case I logged into the first router using and to log into the other router using gateway address in the screenshot. Yes we do need to log into both of the routers.
