I already tried that method, and still no luck, I will go take a screenshot of the port forwarding page with my configurations on it and post it on here to see if that will offer any help, also thanks guys for the help,

Hi so the ports you forward on the laptop are working i.e port 200?

Now port 25665 for minecraft and port 8123 are not forwarding is that correct?

Please use PFPortcheck from portforward.com to check if the ports are open link below:

Open Port Check - PortForward.com

Please provide us a ipconfig /all from the desktop please for review.

Also please provide a screenshot of the ports forwarded on the router as requested please.

Hi Jemjem787 from the ipconfig /all i see DHCP is enabled can you confirm that you have used DHCP reservation on the Dlink DIR-615 to reserve 192.168.1.194 ip address to the Physical address(Mac address) of your wireless adapter making it a fixed address assigned everytime to the desktop wireless adapter?

In your portforwarding please do seperate portforwarding rules to port 25565 one for TCP and one for UDP and allow all on inbound filter for the minecraft server and port 8123 i assume is a game please do seperate rule/s for this also on TCP and UDP. Forward to the fixed ip you have assigned.

Thanks for the output by the way much appreciated and that is good with DHCP reservation.

Power cycle all devices after portforward and leave powered down for 2 minutes.

Power on modem wait for lights to stabilise.

Power on Dlink DIR-615 wait for lights to stabilise.

Power on Desktop and wait until fully booted after login.

Please let us know how it goes please use the port checker tool to check that the ports have been forwarded.

Sorry i havent posted in a while, i have been busy

I have tried all of the above, and what you have said in previous posts, i am now just going to blame it on a faulty rouder, i have a spare one i could try, and if that works it will prove that it is the rouder
