ok in the mean time my pc has required a reformat lucky me so have spent the day putting alllll of my programs back on ewwww
now when i was reinstalling i noticed a thing pop up saying there is a nvidia active armor firewall or perhaps could look like nmsrvc.exe
so that got me thinking so lets get this right
pc has a firewall
dlink has its own firewall
avast does that have one
oh my god this port forwarding is a nightmare
and after my reformatting still blocked ports...
i am completely lost now...
i rang optus and they said to put in local area connection section the following
10.1.1.3 as the ip address???
same subnet mask
and then the default gateway as 10.1.1.1
down the bottom to put in 18.104.22.168
I would say the last 2 numbers are probably DNS for optus
I just did a quick search, yes, 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 Are optus dns server
Put 188.8.131.52 as the primary dns server
and 184.108.40.206 as the secondary
