Although I configured the forwarding ports in my router they are closed.

I have a TP-Link TL-WDR4300 router connected to my home network. I also have a TP-Link TL-WA850RE repeater working as a Wi-Fi extender.

  1. Logged into the WDR4300
  2. Navigated to Forwarding > Virtual Servers
  3. Clicked on Add New:

    • Service Port: 80
    • Internal Port: 80
    • IP Address: (This is also reserved into the DHCP Server)
    • Protocol: ALL
    • Status: Enabled
  4. Clicked on Save

  5. Just in case I rebooted the router.

These were the steps I did use to configure the Forwarding ports, after all this I have checked several online Port checkers and the port 80 is still closed.

Just in case I stopped my AV and Firewall, but nothing happened.

Any ideas what's stopping me from opening ports in the router?
