I've recently bought Archer C80 as an upgrade for an old Archer C7 v2. I like that router a lot, but I found one thing that annoys me and that is C80 is unable to forward mutiple ports (port range). I have a NAS with FTP and I need to port forward about 30-40 ports for passive connections.
In C7 there was no problem with that. I just set port range for wan and lan and it was done. But C80 is unable to do that. With C80 I have to force to UPNP it from NAS so I can use that port range. Or I can forward from port range but only to one port in LAN which does not works in my case. I would like to be able to port forward ports in the router and not beeing forced to UPNP it. I know I could make that happen thru port forward each port, but there is a limit of ports that can be forwarded so I'm unable to forward them all any other way than UPNP it.
Is it possible to do that somehow so I could use static forwarding instead of UPNP? I would like to be able to do that so everything would be static and I would have better control over it.
Please TP-Link, could you allow it in some firmware update? Or at least make limit of forwarded ports bigger. I think a lot of people would be glad to be able to use this function.
