    Did you configure the router manually, the Default Gateway should be 192.168.15.1 according to your pic.
    Set up a port range in the router for the computers on your LAN, 192.168.15.30 - last computer, example 192.168.15.33. I don't use an Alternate DNS Server, and my Default Gateway and Preferred DNS Server are the same (house router). When you get all set up, see if you can forward a port through uTorrent and the router (Options/Setup Guide). If what you have don't work, try the addresses I sent you in the PM.

    No, port forwarding has nothing to do with IP address range. The port range inside the router is for the computers you have on the LAN, you don't have to use a range if you don't want.

    Don't worry about ipconfig just yet. Your public and private addresses are two different things unless you had a static IP address assigned by your ISP, otherwise you have a Dynamic IP address which changes and your router will automatically negotiate that. See the Private Network settings inside the router and try the addresses I sent.

    Seem like I had to restart my old router but not the current router. Wouldn't hurt to restart it after saving the settings.

    What tab is it under.... try My Network. Don't forget the link I posted for Port Forwarding a Verizon router, you can refer back to it if need be.

    Should prompt for a restart or say something about restarting after saving setting. I never configured a Verizon router, not sure what you see there.

    If you screw up just reset the router if it doesn't have a page default. Might have to re-enter some info or run the CD that came with it. Problem with Tixati is it doesn't map UPnP and NAT ports like uTorrent. Kind of hard setting this up over the internet because of needed testing. Download the router's user manual and play with it a bit more. Once you get it working, trust me you'll never forget.

    Hi, setting up routers are complicated for some people including myself, but the trick is not to give up because eventually you'll get it and that port will go through. I'll be purchasing a Cisco Small Business SA540 Security Appliance soon for a little business adventure myself and a friend are getting ready to take on. I don't know jack about Cisco but he doesn't know it, I'll be here at MDL just like you trying to get some help if I can't figure it out.
