    I could use some help with this...
    I have a Linksys W110 wireless router, if that makes any difference, and whenever I try to save my settings at the Applications and Gaming->single port forwarding page, I keep getting this error.

    Forwarding IP can not be the same with the router IP address.


    What does this mean, and how can I fix it?
    I've also been following this guide, if that matters at all..

    FYI, it's a sunday, it's the summer vacation, contrary to popular belief techs do have lives you know.

    Now to actually look at the problem:

    Forwarding IP can not be the same with the router IP address.

    have you been forwarding to the LAN IP of your router?
    cause normally routers don't allow forwarding to the LAN IP of the router or the broadcast address of a subnet, for safety reasons.

    I know this is locked, but really it has to be said.
