I've tried all the tutorials, and suggestions from other's having the same problem I am with this router.
Port forwarding simply does not work with this rounter on Comcast. I called comcast to see if they were blocking ports and they insist they ARE NOT.
So what can it be? Was on FIOS with their modem/router combo and port forwarding worked like a charm with them.
I've tried single port forwarding, port range forwarding, yada yada yada.
I am using the correct internal IP address on the machine I want to enable port forwarding on...
Latest firmware is installed 1.04 or whatever (just purchased the router and updated during the Cisco Connect install on the 29th).
Guess I should go find a cheaper router that actually works...

SO, I just got off the phone with Comcast, then RCA (my modem is an RCA). Comcast said RCA could put the modem in bridge mode. I called them and they informed me that I only have a modem, "No Gateway" and that it already acts as a "Bridge."
That means the problem is in the #2500 software or firmware.

How did you setup port forwarding on your router? What ports are you trying to open? What IP did you set on your computer?

Trying to open ports to host rFactor2 server.
I just unboxed my old Netgear wired router, plugged it in and port forwarding works like a charm on it.
So it's obviously the E2500 not playing nice with my Comcast modem.
