Windows 7: Cant port forward ports anymore on a Modem+router setup

Cant port forward ports anymore on a Modem+router setup

Hey friends long time!!!

Ok so I had a Linksys x2000 ADSL2+ router running in modem+router mode, it dropped out alot so I decided to make my old Thomson TG585v2 as an adsl2+ modem (reliable modem but bad wifi) and my Linksys as the router connected by a gigabit ethernet cable.

Here is the problem:

With just the linksys my ports could forward easily (minecraft and MW2 NATpen)

But now with the modem router combo My MW2 NAT: Strict and when people try to connect to my minecraft server they now get connection timed out.


The firewall on the Thomson is disabled due to double NAT.
That means the Minecraft ports must need to be forwarded to use on the linksys. i have forwarded the ports to the correct pc too...

Im stumped now i cant play with my friends but i cant go back to the unreliable setup i had before... any ideas?

I know i can count on you!
