Port forwarding with 1 modem and 1 router

Hey guys so im really confused on how i would port forward my ventrilo server (or any server)

it should be travelling through this order

PC->AC 1000H->Dlink AC 1750

Before getting the dlink my port forwarding worked like a charm but after struggling with this i decided to start fresh. So right now i have no ports what so ever and have only obtained a static ip for my IPV4 connection.

You would configure the port forwarding (virtual server on some routers). This can be tricky considering your PC will need a static IP for the port forwarding to be permanant

Thanks for responding. I have a static in set up. But port forwarding doesn't work.

There is a possibility that your ISP is blocking the traffic. There is also the possibility that you aren't setting the proper ports to be forwarded. Have you tried setting your computer in the DMZ?

Configuration varies depending on the mode the modem is and how the wiring of all devices is made.

The modem itself can be either in "bridge" or "router" modes, which changes things.
The modem LAN port could be plugged in either LAN or WAN ports of the router. Your computer should be plugged into another LAN port of that router right?

What's your current configuration of those things?

The computer is plugged into the dlink router. I assume I would have to put that router into bridge mode. How would I do so?

You've got two D-Link routers one after the other? Why?
Your AC1000's manual says you need a modem.
http://www.dlink.com/-/media/Consume...62013v10US.pdf
Pages 8 through 12.

Your ISP should have supplied you with a modem. Where is it, and what is its make and model?

For instance, I have DSL service connected like this:

Verizon-supplied Westell model 6100 DSL modem -> Linksys BEFSR41 router -> PC

The modem is set to bridge mode so that it becomes nothing more than a set of blinking indicator lights for power, ethernet, and DSL signal lock. All modem and router duties are shifted to my Linksys.

Our isp telus provided us with the actiontec v1000h. It goes v1000h -> dlink -> Pc. So I assume the dlink has to be set to bridge mode.

This is a different story, now that we know the real brand name of the modem.

The Actiontec modem would need to be set to bridge mode, not the D-link router. However, from what I see in your modem's manual here:
https://www.actiontec.com/products/m...nual%20NCS.pdf
there is no bridge mode for your modem.
The bright side is that there would appear to be no need at all for the D-Link router, as your Actiontec has built-in port forwarding abilities, as shown on page 57. This means that your situation could be very much simpler:

Actiontec -> PC

Ahh so i should just have my Ethernet cable go from the actiontec to the Pc. But by doing this my Pc wouldn't get the advantages of the dlink would it?
