I have previously done this successfully on my old Residential Gateway from ATT. Now I have a 3801HGV. I want to enable WOL via internet. Got my BIOS/windows config set.

What I did:

1) I set a static IP from the private pool, firewall enabled. I had no choice but to keep WAN IP mapping to the router's IP

2) I added a port forward via the pinholes/DMZ settings tool, and created 2 manual applications (i.e. I did not choose a specific type):
2.1) Port 7 is TCP
2.2) Port 9 is UDP
Both show their public IP as the router's public IP.

3) I double-checked in windows that my ipconfig shows my private static IP to be the same as the router thinks it is. Confirmed.

However, when I try to test this by going to or other alternative online tools, none of these ports respond.

I'm stumped now. Am I missing something? Looked around the net, nothing. Any pointers will be met with great appreciation.

Dear Tom's hardware. You must be mistaken. nobody seems to know. Or care. anyways It doesn't mater anymore. I moved on. Thanks for spamming me for no good reason, though, I appreciate it.
