Hi, I'm trying to port forward for the game Ark Survival Evolved, but while I'm doing this I'm shown two different ipv4s. To port foward I tried creating a static ip, but for the ipv4 my computer is using there is no default gateway...so what do I do? Thanks in advance and here's some info:

 

OS: Windows 7 

Router: Asus RT-N56U 

Connected by a cable to router that's in a different room.

Post the results of a ipconfig /all via a command prompt for review.

Ok, sorry if this seems really stupid, but I fixed the first problem. Now I have a new one. I reset my ip and disabled a loopback adapter, so now I have only one ip. Now when I setup the static ip and forward the ports, then I check if they are open on canyouseeme.org, the website has a different ip than the one shown on my computer. Which port should I be forwarding?

No reason to disable the loopback ip.  Why would you do that?

 

"Which port should I be forwarding?"

You already know what ports to forward when you said

"forward the ports"

 

"on canyouseeme.org, the website has a different ip than the one shown on my computer"

Common misconception.  canyouseeme is listing your public ip address you get from your ISP.  This is not to be confused with your local lan address which is a private ip address that you get from your router.

 

Google private ip vs public ip for more information on the differences.

 

according to this site ports TCP/UDP: 27015 and TCP/UDP: 7777 need to be forwarded

I installed the loopback a while ago myself, but I'll enable it again. I thought it was creating problems and read I didn't need it.

I think we maybe talking two different things.  I suspect you mean MS Loopback adapter.  You do not need this installed.  What I was referring to was the loopback address which is 127.0.0.1
