Windows 7: GFWL Strict NAT

Placing my IP Address into the DMZ works, but its very insecure to do so. I use Windows Firewall...

My router is bad?

uPnP is receiving port forwarding requests, but your ports aren't opening up, nor when you manually set them, seems like a faulty router

Shit... I've been expecting this. The router doesn't always work well too... Any way to fix it?

Well, nothing shy of changing your router is going to fix your strict NAT, apart from using 3rd party firewall in the DMZ pool :-( sorry SlasherIT

Damn it... What 3rd party firewall do you recommend in the meantime? Isn't Windows Firewall enough when configured via the Advanced UI?

it should suffice, but keep real time anti-virus on if you have it

Yeah, I do use Microsoft Security Essentials. One question, with the DMZ online, the firewall that the router has will go, meaning the things will pass down to the computer. Will a Software Firewall be able to filter out the stuff effectively like the router or not?

it should be more efficient at filtering out stuff as it has more power to do it, routers are purely software, there is no hard firewall in routers, so if you find a good enough firewall then sure
