I have a ethernet cable that stems from my computer into a small box originally intended for streaming TV from the router, but also doubles as a conduit for internet access when a ethernet cable is attached. That box then has a cord that stems all the way down stairs into the router which is a Pace AC.
Ever since we have been supplied with this box it has made any kind of port forwarding a pain in the rear. I have been able to port forward on past devices, such as 2-wire, but this new box is nothing but headaches. The last thing I can think is that the motorola small box has some kind of built in firewall and that I need to connect to the Router directly, but I have been avoiding this option because 1.
My computer is a big desktop 2. I have port-forwarded through this small box in the past with little to no issue. My wireless connection is my desktop computer's secondary connection ability letting me connect straight to the Router via WiFi. This option skips the small box mentioned before meaning there shouldn't be something in the way per say.
I have tried a number of different things with this but it simply doesn't work either. This is odd because this is the "if all else fails" technique which has ultimately failed Hamachi does it's own type of port forwarding which is easy and simple. I have done all the correct steps to make my server run through Hamachi, but to no prevail.

Here ill help you. For the record you dont use your INTERNAL IP you distribute your external ip, and then perform port forwarding checks which assuming all goes well proper configs on your end are done it should just work afterwards im assuming server is running, proper static ip is assigned to your host machine, proper external ip is given out for others to connect on you know things of that nature.
Forgot to mention for your issue, sounds like a anti virus or firewall on your end. Have you configured them properly? What windows os are you running? What have you tried thus far? If your not gonna disable your anti virus or firewalls just to verify that it is them, what is the point of asking for help if you wont do that much?

I performed checks with PFChecker which showed the port open, however, it seemed not to be because of "things of that nature". I forgot to mention that I had already tried disabling the firewall and it had no effect for that I am sorry.
