Model : Archer CR-700

Hardware Version : v1.1

Firmware Version : v1.0.6 Build 20160203 Rel615753

ISP : Cox

I'm trying to open port 7777 UDP.

What I did:
1. Went to tplinkmodem.net/index.htm and logged in as admin.

2. Selected NAT forwarding/Port Forwarding
3. Added External port 7777, Internal IP (my computer), Internal port 7777, UDP, enabled.
4. Went to a website that detects open ports, entered my external IP and port 7777.
Result: port is closed.

What am I missing?

Also tried:
- Creating DMZ for target computer. (same result)
- Contacted ISP to verify they are not blocking port.
- Tried another website to detect open ports.
This one reports the UDP 7777 port as open|filtered. I have not been able to locate any kind of firewall issue that would make it "filtered."

Solved: Ran windows network troubleshooter. It asked for the program that was having the issue, ran some more, and then asked me to have someone try to connect. That person was able to connect! However, Finishing Windows troubleshooter dialog, it said it was not able to fix the error. :p
