I can't seem to pass the port forwarding test even after plugging the computer directly into the wireless router. I followed directions for setting up static ips and port forwarding for both the router and the modem from portforward.com. I don't remember where i read to set the port to 16881. Did I screw up by forwarding the same port in the router and the modem? Am I screwed just because of the wireless router?

Please help. Let me know if you need anymore info.
