For months now Ive been trying to fix my modem. Randomly one day i would open a port through port forwarding and the port wouldn't open. I ran a online test and all my ports came up as "stealth". Ive tried everything, calling my ISP to see if they blocked my ports, opening outgoing and inbound ports on my firewall, and Ive reset my modem plenty of times. I would love some help.

More often than not, it's been my experience that a router that can't open a port has a firmware problem. Try a reset, firmware upgrade, access the GUI with a different web browser, or try a different router, even if it's just for a test.

Strange connectivity issues.
As of late I've been noticing some connectivity issues on my computers. The weird thing, however, is that the issues are different on each computer in my home, and they also don't happen at the same time. My router/modem are set up in my living room. The computer I'm on now is a tower in my...
