Angry WNR2000v3 Port forwarding issues

Hello

I'm going to make this as "step by step" as possible, please trust me in that im not an idiot - i just want to make sure 100% that you can see EXACTLY what im doing and what i've tried.

I have recently bought a WNR2000v3. Im doing ALL this using wired connections, i havent even enabled the wireless.

I have numerous web cameras which i want to make accessible to the internet.

At the moment i'm trying this with just one. I set up port forwarding to it on port 80, and go onto a different network, and i can see the feed on the webpage.

So far so good.

However, i need to set it up to another port OTHER than 80, as i want to have lots of them attached to differnt ports.

So I try to set it to (for example) port 8080. And i go to the internet and type:

http://ipaddress:8080

and I get nothing. Seems like the firewall on this device is blocking this port (or ANY incoming port other than 80).

So for a test i turned on "remote management", again on port 8080. And that worked!?!?! Turning it off, going back to my port forwarding, set min and max to 8080 for the local ip of my camera... And.. Still blocked.

What REALLY surprises me is that there doesnt seem to be a security page anywhere on this device for me to check which ports are blocked, etc?

So my questions:

1. How do i set up an incoming port on this device?
2. How do i view/edit firewall settings to enable said port?
3. Is this device capable of what i need it to do? Or should i take it back to store?


I need an answer on this one quickly as if it's completely uselss for what i need it for, i need to take it back first thing (need to get these cams up and running tomorrow...)

Thanks

For one using port 80
1.ISP is not blocking the port80
2.Make sure you do not test your web server with other PC behind the same router. Loopback is not supports . Test physically outside if your network

Sorry - i thought i covered all these points.

1. I know 8080 is allowed by my isp as remote management worked on that port.

2. I am testing outside my network. I have the cameras on a completely different web connection to the rest of my computers/etc.


It seems to me like the firmware isnt allowing the ports to be opened for incoming traffic... And there's no way of me to set it.

Today is the last day I can take it back to the store for a refund too :-(.

Surely a brand such as netgear wouldnt be that terrible?

Do not use 8080 ports at all. Use any other ports

Ive LITERALLY tried hundreds of different ports.

None of them worked.

I used 8080 as an example of one which worked for remote assistance, but not for actually doing what i needed it to do (port forwarding).

I've tried loads of different ports - low numbers and high numbers. All worked for remote assistance but didnt work for opening a port to the local ip.

The only port i've managed to get working for that is 80.
