Router: DIR-655 Port Forwarding Problem

I'm trying to get port forwarding on a D-Link DIR 655 working without success. From what I've found on the Internet, there are known issues (but not known workarounds). I've upgraded the firmware to A4, 1.32NA (the latest) and still can't forward ports. I'm using portforward.com and Shields Up to test the port.

I'm trying to open port 58294 for BitTorrent use. I'm able to access the router's advance setup and configure the port forwarding. The process is straightforward and I've done this with other routers. After the router reboots, the port is still not accessible.

I've determined that the software firewall (Native Win 7 x64) is allowing BitTorrent traffic. As a check, I temporarily disabled the Win 7 Firewall and the port remained block.

The only virus stuff I'm running is Windows Defender and Immunet.

I've tried the Routers "Virtual Server" settings as well without success.

Any thoughts?

We here at GeeksToGo will not assist you with issues relating to P2P file sharing programs. While many of these programs are-in-and of themselves legal, most things acquired by their use are not. Instead of attempting to differentiate between the legal use of P2P programs and the illegal use thereof, we have decided to stop helping with issues regarding this software. It is also in your best interest to know that many P2P software packages come bundled with spyware/malware/virii and that their use greatly increases the chances of your computer becoming infected. I strongly suggest that you uninstall these programs and refrain from using them at all costs.

If you have any issues with this policy please PM a Moderator or Admin.
