For what it’s worth, I’ve been having huge problems with my router and port forwarding… I ended up buying an Amped AC1750 high power router, which works well for the LAN. But when I tried to open port forwarding to access my OS controller while on vacation, it was impossible. Also, it is impossible to shut off internet access to the router’s controller menu. Tech support just kept cycling me through the same diagnostics each time I called, then said to “send it in for service” – disconnecting my wifi network while they fixed it. I ended up buying a new one, but that had the same firmware problem. I won’t be buying any more Amped Wireless products.
