roxas179 asked 3 years ago

about six months ago i portforwarded so i could play a specific game with my friends. All was well until about two months ago when, for some unknwon reason my ports were no longer working. i tried re portforwarding a number of times but still nothing. i am on windows 7, have a static ip and the port is 25565. Also my router is Thomson Alcatel TG782T.

Any help will be greatly appreciated im on the verge of giving up.

Thanks greatly in advance.

Thanks for your question roxas179.

When you say you have a static IP, are you talking about your internal or external IP?

The internal IP would be the one you get by typing "ipconfig" at the command prompt.

The external IP would be the one you get from sources such as our home page.

Also consider any updates you have done in Win7. Perhaps a firewall update is blocking inbound access to your computer.
