The only thing that”s changed from my current internet setup is that i bought a new router.

My old configuration used to look like this:

ONT –> Verizon FIOS Router via COAX –> Ethernet —> PC

Now its

ONT –> Verizon FIOS Router via COAX –> ASUS Router —> PC

They”re both setup as routers and not access points so idk if that changes anything. When I just had my Verizon FIOS router, everything was fine.

Ah, so you”re behind two routers. That means you need to enable port forwarding on both of them.

 

So basically the Verizon FIOS Router needs to forward port 25565 from the Internet to the ASUS router”s IP and the ASUS router needs to forward that port to your PC. If you haven”t touched the Verizon configuration its probably still configured to forward that port to your PC, which it can no longer see, since that is now hidden behind the ASUS router.

Judging by the port stated above, 25565 is commonly for Minecraft. I have an Asus RT-AX88U running 3.0.0.4.384_7997 firmware. I”m trying to port forward the port 25565 but I can”t seem to open the port. The Internal IP Address I put down is my IPv4 Address. There”s no apply button to press but in the system logs with port forwarding, it shows 25565 to both protocols

do the same thing in your firewall settings… assuming you are on windows

This is what I did, and checked the ports, they were still closed

If you want to open that port to the Internet, the source IP should usually be 0.0.0.0 and the destination IP should be your internal IP (no need to hide that, really, your external IP you want to keep secret).

 

Also, as
TylerDurden! said, you also need to open that port on Windows, if you”re forwarding that port to it. Go into the firewall settings of Windows and open that port and/or allow the application (i.e. Minecraft).

I only have the port open through my firewall, I did not touch the router settings and it works fine. I”m using an ASUS router with Merlin firmware

I”ve tried that, I made 2 inbound port rules with 25565, TCP/UDP and its still closed

Sounds like UPnP (Universal Plug & Play). If the router supports it, opening a port on Windows should automatically enable port forwarding on the router.

 

I would also assume that the firewall settings on the router don”t need to be touched if port forwarding is enabled, the router should do that automatically in this case.

Was Minecraft open and listening when you tested that? A port is only open when something is behind it, listening. Otherwise it”ll be closed.

Yes Minecraft was opened and listening when I tested it. UPnP does support my router, though I have it disabled.

Manual configuration should work just fine, UPnP is supposed to make it easier, by automatically configuring things.

 

So here”s what I”d try: Start Minecraft, open the port(s) on the Windows firewall, see if you can connect from another PC on the same network. If that works, enable port forwarding on the router. Make sure the internal IP address is the correct one (i.e. IP of the machine Minecraft is running on). I”d then test the port with an external machine, e.g using nmap.

 

If the port is still closed, maybe check with your ISP, if they have some restrictions in place that block certain ports over the Internet. Some may do that.

The ASUS router”s IP Address is the gateway address shown in ipconfig correct?

The ASUS router should have two IP addresses. One on the same network as your PC (the gateway IP) and another one on the Verizon router”s network. This is probably shown as it”s “WAN” IP. That”s the one you need to use.

 

So essentially:

Verizon router: Forward port 25565 from Internet to ASUS router”s “external” IP

ASUS router: Forward port 25565 from it”s IP to your computer”s IP

 

The ASUS router”s external IP or WAN IP should also be in the private address range, but a different address range from the one you”re using behind the ASUS router. This is based on the assumption that the ASUS router is also configured for NAT (i.e. you”re double-NATing)

I logged in to my Verizon Router”s homepage, portforwarded 25565 on both TCP/UDP to my Asus Router”s WAN IP Address.

Logged in to my ASUS Router”s homepage, added portforwarding rule to 25565 with both TCP/UDP, External port : 25565, Internal port 25565, Internal IP Address: I put down my IPV4 Address. What do I put for Source IP, and Do i even need it?

Glad to hear it worked. Just to answer the question: It should be fine to leave that empty, but this is normally used for security reasons. E.g. you would say “forward port X only when the request comes from a certain IP”. Doesn”t make much sense for a server since you normally want anyone to be able to connect not just one person with a specific IP Remember to quote or
