I have hosted more than a few dedicated servers for more than a few titles on my secondary PC, but for whatever reason, this time around I am having issues.
My router is an ARRIS TG1682G
Normally I would setup port forwarding through my routers admin panel, but I am being forced to do it through xFi now... I am guessing the issue is because of this new system, but I thought I would check here to see if maybe I am missing something...
I've setup port forwarding through xFi by selecting my secondary machine (the dedicated server) and forwarding ports 7777-7778 and 27015-27017.
I've set custom inbound rules on Windows Firewall allowing connections from those ports, as well as setting custom rules for the game executable and steam.
I've made sure IPv6 is disabled on the dedicated machine.
I've set a reserved IP for the dedicated machine under my routers admin panel.
I've tried disabling my firewall and windows defender on the dedicated machine to no avail.
I've disabled xFi Advanced Security.
When I launch the server, I wait til I know it is done and running. After which I go to canyouseeme.org and test the port(s), it always returns a connection timeout error. Also, when I disable my firewall, it returns a connection refused error, which to me is odd.
Obviously I cannot direct connect to the server via IP, but the server is also not showing up under LAN.
I've been trying to figure this out for almost 48 hours now. I can provide additional info and screenshots if needed.

Hi, I've been having serious issues with Dropbox... I use it regularly for work, and normally upload speeds aren't an issue, but for the past week I have been experiencing speeds around 1.5MB/sec. I was told by their support staff that I should contact my ISP to make sure that you aren't limiting my bandwidth when using that application? It sounds ridiculous to me... I've tried every suggestion they had to offer and they can't seem to figure out the issue, they claim it isn't on their end. As stupid as it sounds, I thought I should ask... is my speed being limited when using Dropbox? I do transfer terabytes worth of data a month, I'm not sure if it gets flagged or something? I shouldn't be getting bottlenecked though, right? I need to figure this out ASAP. I have gone through a laundry list of possible fixes, checked links in previous posts about this, spoken to their support several times, reinstalled Dropbox, disabled anti-virus and firewalls, restarted several times, reset the modem, ran troubleshooting, etc etc
