Hi

I've just bought and set up an AX20 as my DHCP server/router and set my virgin hub3 to modem mode, but I'm having problems.  All appears to work OK.  I've set a few port forwarding rules which work OK.

My problem is, if I enter the internet ip address of my home eg 84.29.52.136 it takes me directly to my network drive's login page at 192.168.1.55.  I removed all port forwarding rules, but it didn't help. How can I stop this?  Also, ports 80 and 443 are open all the time.  They were closed when I was using the Virginmedia hub 3.  How can I close them or put them into stealth mode.

@Picapica Having looked at all settings I think I've found out why.  For some reason UPnP was enabled and the netdrive was in there with ports 80 and 443.  Turned it off, now the netdrive isn't there even after several refreshes.  If I try to access my Internet ip it times out.  All's as it should be.
