Problem with port forwarding

Hello. The problem that I'm having is that no matter how hard I try, I just can't get port open. I have fallowed many guides but still, no luck. My router is TP-LINK TL-WR340G. I have a static IP (192.168.1.110), and I have opened my port in router, still no luck as PFPortCheck can access my router, but can't reach my port. My firewall is disabled as well. DMZ is disabled too. I have port forwarded friends routers and they all worked but mine is exception. Any solutions? Thanks

Here are some screens:

  1. First of all, you have the WAN IP Address set with a Private IP (192.168.0.67). This should be your LAN device IP. With this setup, you won't be able to connect to the Internet.

    Once the above has been resolved, using port 25565, you should get access to the 192.168.1.110 device. You should however, either change the DHCP range to not include 192.168.1.110, or even easier, change the static IP of the device to say 192.168.1.90, so that it's not in the DHCP range - which potentially could cause conflicts. Of course, you will also need to change the destination IP in the 'Forwarding' section to reflect this change.

    Could you explain me what should I do/ where should I go because I'm really bad with routers and I couldn't figure out (guess that I'm an idiot with this kind of stuff :D) what I need to do, to set LAN IP or change WAN IP properly?

    Does this router connect directly to the Internet, and does your ISP give you a Dynamic IP? If so, click the 'release' button to get the IP from your ISP.
    If you have a static IP from your ISP, then you should enter the details manually, including DNS servers etc.

    Or is this router linked into an Internet router? If so, this needs to be re-worked completely

    Just called my ISP to ask if IP was dynamic or static and they told me that if I want to do port-forward I have to send them email about ports that I want to open because for some reason they need confirmation (or something else) on this... But still, you was huge help to me, thank you.
  5. Try checking out this port forwarding video, don't forget to assign a static IP :)
