I am not familiar with D-links Control panel but you have to go to the router to setup the port forwards. Is the port forward app you are using one that came with the router? If so its probably doing this for you.
However you can access the router by opening your internet browser and entering the router's IP address there and you'll be prompted with a login. If you have never set this you can google your router model with the words "Default Login" and easily find it. After you login you'll be messing with your router settings and can google where port forwarding is or find it on your own.
However I do not think this is your problem and I think the ports are forwarding. I think your problem is your outside IP is not 192.168.0.153. 192 IP's are what your router see's them as. Anyone looking for your computer online will not beable to connect to you as this is not your main line. This is your in home network IP. Anyone with a router has a IP of 192.X.X.X.
Go here:http://www.whatismyip.com/ to find your modem's IP address which is what anyone trying to connect to you needs to enter to find you. Then the port forwarding makes it so any data across those ports goes to your PC that way the router won't stop the connection. They don't need your 192 IP as the port forwarding handles it after they hit the router.
Hope this helps I google'd borderlands ports to set them to host and saw this with no one replies, figured id try and help :P Good luck and have fun in the borderlands!
#1 He/she meant, one of the IP Address in your router should be the same as the IP Address there.
If none of the IP Address are the same, you got issues.
#2 And if that is the case: What is connected to the WAN/Internet port of this DLINK DGL-4300?
#3 What software firewall is on your computer?
"Closed" Ports is a normal response when theres no program using it.
There are 3 states a port can have when a connection is being setup.
Open - The system responds and exchanges information to set up the connection
Closed - The system responded and says theres no programs listening on this port. (this is expected if the game/program/etc isn't running)
Stealth/No response - There was no response from the target system, or the connection was blocked by a firewall and no response was sent back.
Stealth/No Response is used by most firewalls to silently deny/block connections to the computer, and is done this way to trick probes and worms into thinking that theres no computer there.
Even back in the old days, if they got a "closed" port response, they "know" that there a computer there, and would start scanning each port to find one thats open, probe it to figure out what program is using it (like HTTP/Web server) and attack it.
So if your seeing the ports as "closed" as opposed to "blocked" then forwarding is working. When you fire the game up, those ports will be opened up and waiting for people to connect to it.
