Alright. I’ve worked my way through most of what I can do so far. I’m having issues with my ISP. Since I live in an apartment complex that has a tech ammenity (my internet in included in rent) the ISP’s techs tell me “no ports are closed” or “we don’t close any ports.” I got to a open port tool like “you get signal” and it tells me that 28967 is still closed. At this point my ISP tells me I’m going to need a pass through address. They also told me if I hooked up my own router then I could forward that port myself through my own router.
So…I’m stuck. I don’t think adding my own router and setting port forward will change anything if the port on my isp is still closed. Any help or recommendations y’all can give would be greatly appreciated. I’ve reached a road block. Is it possible the port is open and the open port tool is wrong? Is the tech at my isp right about adding my own router? Help!
Oh and they also said I could get my own “personal” residential service installed? wtf?
