Default My new Netgear cannot connect

Can anyone please help?

I have been using Vent for the past 6 months with NO problems at all. (Using my old USB modem).

I have however recently bought a brand new Netgear DGND3300. Ever since Im using this, I cannot connect to my own Vent Server.

What am I doing wrong? I have turned off my AV and firewalls and I still cannot connect - It must be my Netgear - as I have tried using my old USB modem again and I can connect fine.

I have tried the following Port Triggers but it still wont connect - I am baffled! Can someone please help me?

are you using the local ipaddress of the server or your WAN ipaddress when trying to connect to your server?

[FONT=Verdana]For PC’s connecting on the same LAN as the server:[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]If you’re connecting the client from a different PC than the server then configure the client to use one of the internal ipaddresses of the server for the servername.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]If you’re running the client on the same PC as the server then use or “localhost” as the servername.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Most home routers will not loopback a connection if you specify your external ipaddress or hostname in the Ventrilo Client - Server setup.[/FONT]
