I can work myself through this though I'm still new to it, so please bare with me.

 

I am currently in the same case as the person from this old thread I found through Google:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/280176/connecting-to-wireless-router-admin-panel/

 

I had the same issue but I got my solution through the thread and I managed to access my admin panel. My ports are for the Steam Client, when I log in the Steam Client it tells me it could not connect to the Steam network. I have access to the port forwarding page, and I setup the ports I needed, but when checking these ports with a port checker like http://www.canyouseeme.org/ it told me it "could not see my service on ~IP~".

 

My question here is, is it even possible to port forward in situation such as mine where I am required to setup a proxy server setting in order to get internet access? If so, how?

 

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I think you're going to be out of luck because of the proxy. If the proxy doesn't forward the ports to your router you can't forward them to your computer.

Ah, yeah I thought so.

You shouldn't have to port forward anything. Those ports opened automatically by the client as needed. Unless you are Hosting a game server then you need to port forward. If you use ipv6 only that might be why you can't connect.

It seems my client just doesn't connect to the internet, while I still have access to other sites.

How do I know if I'm using ipv6 only? And how can I change that?

Can be something going on with the network card setting or router. Go to cmd and type ipconfig. You should see both ipv4 and ipv6.
