Hello,
I've recently been trying to set up a Minecraft server (port: 25565) so I could play with a friend, however, no matter what I try I cannot get the port open. I've made servers in the past, but that was with a different router and connected via ethernet. Now I have an ASUS RT-AC86U and I'm connecting to the home network through an access point provided by a Luxul XAP-1410. I've tried a handful of solutions: updated router firmware, disabled firewall, used third party applications, etc., but to no success.

I'd appreciate any help.

Connection type shouldn't matter. Port forwarding simply tells the router to allow traffic for the IP and port configured.

To test your config, temporarily connect the PC directly to the router.
