Why won't my router open ports?

I'm using a WRVS4400N and have all the proper ports open as well as the corresponding ones in the windows firewall. I've tested this with multiple port checkers online, such as grc.com. I've even go so far as to put one computer on a dmz and turn off the firewall on others. I've tested multiple ports on different computers. As well as from different remote gateways (other people's computers) just to see if it was a loopback problem.

I have the latest firmware installed and have done this from a clean install as well. This problem won't go away. My addy is nbcr [dot] dyndns.info if you'd like to have a test yourself and see that 118 is indeed closed.

I have an extensive computer repair background and run my own shop repairing computers, however networking is my weak area. I really don't think I've missed anything but I'm open to suggestions.

Oh and its version 2.

Hello Shawn,

What is the WAN IP address of the WRVS4400N? You will want to make sure that the address there matches up with the address your domain name points to.

I've tried both, however I'm not giving out my public IP on a forum.

Strange, it just starting working this morning. Guess it just needed a good sleep.
