well this is the common procedure for all routers :

1. open the router config page thru your browser (type the router ip)
2. logon using username admin and the password(by default the password is set to "password" or "1234")
3. go to port forwarding and open port 8080 (you have to specify tcp/udp)
4. save and reboot router

although this may differ for your modem, this is the most common procedure

TCP and UDP are different protocols at the network layer. Basically, TCP is connection-oriented, while UDP is connectionless. UDP is used when reliability isn't an issue.

Most programs, such as web browsers, FTP clients, IRC, MSN, etc. use TCP. For programs where speed is better than reliability, UDP is used (voice conferencing, streaming media)

ok thanks for the info
clip
hav you tried http://www.portforward.com
jarred89
yes thats where i got the info off on how to do it but it seems not to work still
clip
have you already configured a static ip for your computer? I mean, have you manually configured IP address?
jarred89
yes i have done that
clip
have you restarted your router?

what do you do to test that port?

do you have any firewalls that could be blocking your port?
jarred89
umm i have no idea if i have a firewall and yes i have restarted the router
clip
Ok, let's try this. Turn off any anti-virus softwares that you have and test your port's functionality. If it worked, try configuring your anti-virus to allow that port.

Or else, maybe your ISP has blocked that port. Try contacting your ISP about that issue. You could use other ports.

What program do you intend to use with that port?

i want to use it for shoutcast (www.shoutcast.com) and i emailed my ISP today and they said they dont block ports. ok ill try turning everything off
jarred89
still wont work ive tried on port 8000 and 8080 there is a firewall somewhere maybe the router has a firewall but i dont no how to turn it off

always explore your router setting.

if you are using wireless. check your port forwarding is to your correct ip.

so for example, even if you initate forwarding,and you forward to 192.168.1.3.. that's wrong. haha

and ya. firewall, you can turn it off. so check the manufacture website for detail.

Last Resort. COmplain. !!!!
