Windows 7 port Forwarding Issue

Windows 7 port Forwarding Issue

I can't get port forwarding to work now that I am using windows 7 (64-bit). I am using a wireless connection (no wired connection available). I have the ports forwarded (IP has been double checked, router settings are confirmed), there is an exception for all of the programs in question in windows firewall, and in the resource monitor windows lists the ports as available, not restricted, and yet when I either use a specific program (ie utorrent, DC++, Command & Conquer 3) or check using firefox, the port reads as closed. How do I get the port forwarding to work?

Did you check your router to make sure the port forwarding rule is enabled? I run AVG Anti-virus on Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (retail) and have no issues forwarding ports on my Linksys WRT54G or WRT160N.
