Hello,

Ok, so I started by creating a dynamic IP address using NO-IP. I got everything set up and got the ddns on my router and it updated successfully. So I started to try and set up port forwarding in my router. And in the port forwarding. I then add a name for where it says comment. Then enter the NO-IP, IP address, then add two ports. So after I enter all that and push save. I get the message... " This IP is not in the local area network (LAN) "
I am accessing my router through the wifi not Ethernet. I would appreciate the help getting pass this issue. I have looked everywhere and either missed how to fix this or just didnt understand.

Port forwarding is used to direct traffic on the given port to a device on the router's local network (LAN), not on a public network.

Remote users would use your public IP address, obtained by using your NO-IP URL, to send a message to your router's WAN; the router would use the port forwarding to direct the message to the proper device on your LAN.
