So here's my issue. I'm trying to set up a home Ventrilo server, but for some reason I'm unable to turn on UDP port forwarding. Yesterday afternoon the Ventrilo server was working fine, but then I (stupidly) decided to delete port the forwarding rule. Later on, I decided to re-enable the port forwarding, but then the router started to give me errors. Each time I would try to set up port forwarding for any computer on my network, I received the error: "The desired port range is not allowed to be configured."
I have Verizon FiOS, so I tried calling up Verizon who gave me the run around and told me to call Actiontec, the manufacturer of the router. When I was able to get through to the Actiontec support, they weren't much more helpful. The guy I spoke to tried to fix the issue through remote administration, but in the end he kept getting the same error and wasn't able to resolve the issue. Since then, I've discovered that I can set up TCP port forwarding on my router, but trying to set up UDP port forwarding gives the above error. Unfortunately, Ventrilo requires using both TCP and UDP.
I'm lost as to what could cause this error. I've tried to Google this issue, but it seems that no one else has this particular problem. I know UDP port forwarding worked before, because I was able to use my Ventrilo server before. I have not changed anything on any of my computers such as setting up firewalls. I did, however, set up a Dynamic DNS through dyndns.org. I'm not sure if that could have caused my issues.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
*Edit: I should also mention that I've tried to resetting my router - through the internet browser and by physically pressing the reset button on the router - to no avail.
