D-Link DSL 3780 Port Forwarding

Anybody had success setting-up Port Forwarding on this router?  I need port forwarding for my security system DVR.

 

I have gone through all the usual via advanced>virtual server>firewalls etc.  Set-up 3 rules and rebooted.  Rules saved but port checkers all report that these ports are closed.

 

This is not the first router that I have set-up port forwarding on but I am having no success at all.

 

Somewhere I read that this router and the HG533(?) are the only 2 routers that TT support for YouView.  Anyone know different?  I am prepared to invest in an alternative router as long as I still receive PlusTV from TT.

 

Thanks in advance for any help or advice.

Hi & Welcome Rappy30,

 

You might find the following threads of interest:

Well it would appear the success rate relating to port forwarding with the DSL 3780 is not high there is a post by OC_Nathan in both threads which describes what you need to do.

 

Hope this helps

Thanks for that Birchcroft.

In the end I gave up and purchased a TP-Link TD-W8960N (£27).  Instant sucess.  Very user friendly.  Everything setup and working within 30 mins.  Highly recommended.  It has talktalk settings already built in.  Selected by drop-down menu.

 

Cheers

This router is probably the most difficult one I have tried to work with and completely understand why so many people have resorted to replacing it. I finally solved this after a number of days of effort trying to open up an svn server.

 

Follow these instructions originally posted by OCE_Nathan, the mistake I was making was the interface line. I was leaving it as WAN, but changing it to PVC1 fixed it immediately. You can replace the IP/port number with whatever ones you need.

 

"Log on to the router, go to advanced, then adanced again,

Click on Virtual servers

Tick to enable virtual server rules

Name: Enter what ever name you wish

Interface: PVC1

Internal IP: 192.168.1.2 (this is the IP address of the device you are forwarding to)

Internal startport: 80 

Internal endport: 80 

External startport:80 

External endport: 80

Protocol type: All

Time: Disable

 

Click add/apply"

 

I also have opened the ports in the firewall, this is labelled as applications (right underneath virtual server), and I have fixed the internal IP under LAN setup, but I'm not sure these steps are necessary. 

 

That's it working fine now.

I take back my previous post. WAN is what you want, but I missed an important step that I found on d-links own website that involves saving settings and reboot.

Set up an internal static IP for your device.

 

Log on to the router, go to advanced, then adanced again,

Click on Virtual servers

Tick to enable virtual server rules

Name: Enter what ever name you wish

Interface: WAN

Service #: 1

Internal IP: 192.168.1.2 (this is the IP address of the device you are forwarding to)

Internal startport: 80 

Internal endport: 80 

External startport:80 

External endport: 80

Protocol type: All

Time: Disable

 

Click add/apply

 

Now the settings won't save until you go to system->save settings and reboot.

Hi,

I can confirm that on my D-Link DSL 3780, the router does open the ports, but for some reason, it does fail to redirect to the correct IP address internally.

I have no problems with a Linksys WAG320N router. The only problem I have is that for some reason, I get download speeds of around 20Mbps which my contract is around 75Mbps. I get around 60Mpbs with the D-Link router.

What download/upload speeds do you get on your TP-Link router?

Linksys WAG320N I get around 20Mbps up/down.

I am confused.

 

 

Does it have to be Interface: WAN or Interface: PVC1
