Port forwarding

I've tried setting a port open for a game a few times for my computer and port checker says its closed/ unreachable everytime. I've even tried DMZ mode which showed open for about 5 seconds then showed closed again. I even tried setting a different pc to DMZ to see if something on my desktop was blocking it. Same issue showed that port was closed. Port is 25565 which is used for minecraft so I can't imagine that poses a security risk and would be blocked by something on the backend.

Try disabling the Xfi Advanced Security feature as a workaround for now and see. It's buggy ! And there is currently no way for an end-user to be able to whitelist anything;

Thanks for your reply. I tried this being hopeful, but no luck. My device wasn't showing up under devices, but after disabling IPv6 I got it to show up. When I try to port forward that device it shows its forwarding it to a different ip address than that assigned to my computer that shows up under ipconfig. DMZ still does nothing as well.

SAME Issue, tried many times, this configuration web, and app is disgraceful to those of us that know how to configure a device.

Bridge mode issues as well since it doesn't always give the IP, thankyou youtube disgruntled user for posting that!

I guess I will try to get the bridge mode working so I can manage my network
