Well i have a linksys network everywhere model nh1005, which is a model that does not show up on portforward.com, and a linksys wrt54gs, and a embarq router 660 series. I have tried to forward the ports on the linksys wrtg54s model which worked for a while. For at least 2 hours it stayed on open then the connection I was getting was horrible. Soon after i found out that it went back to strict which was really confusing because on the website for the linksys the ports i entered were still there and the other changes i was told to do on portforward.com. Another problem it caused was that when everyone else in my house that tried to use a computer would not load up a page. The sign for wireless on the screen of the laptop would say they have connection but as soon as they type a website like facebook it would says the connection is out. So then following my dads advice i went from the linksys wrtg54s model to the linksys network everywhere model h1005. That one, when i checked, was set to strict. But as mentioned before that model doesnt show up on portforward.com. So just by looking at models like it I checked its website and enabled upnp. It worked aswell but same as the other linksys model the connection wouldnt work for the other people using internet. It also mentioned to change something on he linksys network everywhere model to change its mode from routing to bridge. So yeah that i am facing would like to recieve some help for the linksys networkeverywhere nh1005 model how to get open nat type and to stay open nat type.
