Router and Modem problems. I'm at wits end. Please help me.
Connected to the internet via 3g hotspot..

I'm pulling my hair out over this issue, please try your best to help!
Anyhow, earlier this morning I was trying to port forward for a Minecraft server.. I read up on "www.portforward.com" that you have to have a 'static' internet type, and I had 'PPPoE'.. so they had this client you could download which changed your internet to 'static.' So I changed it, and my internet seemed to be looking fine. But the portforward still didn't work, so I gave up and clicked the button that changed my internet back, but instead of changing it back to 'PPPoE' it changed it to 'Dynamic,' which wouldn't work because I'm running wi-fi. Anyhow, my router settings are all screwed up, it says I can't connect to DNS server. I've reset the router, and un-plugged my modem. Please.. help?

This is what shows up when I type "ipconfig/all" into CMD.

Hi there and welcome
We will do our best to help you out so bear with us. I had a look at port forward.com and have a good idea what's going on here.

First of all, if your using Wireless to connect then PPPoE (point to point over Ethernet) will not make a difference as its related to wired connection so I would suggest overlooking this for now.

Port forward.com makes configuration changes to your routers forwarding table and also assists in making your computer have a static IP address, if you set this back of dynamic (which it probably was before) then there is a good chance that the forwarding parameter is still set on the router and this should be changed as well.

You will need to log into your router and from its web interface, access the port forwarding option and disable it. You can do this by entering the"default gateway" address into the address bar of your web browser on a device (laptop, iPad etc) that an connect to the router. Else you can use a Ethernet cable to physically connect to the routers Ethernet port and connect the other end to your computers Ethernet port.

Once inside, you need to delete/disable the port forwarding and restart the router.

Let us now how it goes and good luck

I have closed all the forwarded connection on my virtual servers tab? The boxes are all blank, but it's still not connecting :c It's telling me "The DNS server is not responding"...

Resolved! PPPoE wasn't logging in correctly. Thank you anyway!
