So I just switched from Comcast to Centurylink and everything seems to be working fine. I'm using their router as it's supposed to have the same chipset/hardware as the Asus 87u so I'm giving it a try instead of the Asus 68u I have.

The one problem I have is I can't access any internal http servers. For example I can't go to 192.168.1.194:8080 or 8081 to access any web servers running on those ports on my server (192.168.1.194) from another computer on the network. I can however go to those ips/ports FROM the server (using 192.168.1.194:8080 or 127.0.0.1:8080).

I also can't remote desktop into 192.168.1.194:5000 (I have a vm running on that port). I CAN remote into 192.168.1.194 directly from another computer on the network. File sharing also works fine as does any other network stuff I've tried.

As a last resort I'll put the Centurylink modem/router into bridge mode and use my router.

Any ideas?

probably need to punch some holes in your router firewall

That's what I'm thinking. I disabled everything I could think of on the Centurylink router (even unplugged the WAN connection). Nothing worked. I finally switched the web servers from 8080 and 8081 to 85 and 86 and they worked. I also switched my vm to port 87 and it also worked. Something about the port ranges. Hmm.
