Have you changed a setting on your router lately? Maybe turned off UPnP?

There is another possible, that your ISP is blocking users from receiving data packets on specific ports or protocols to you.

EDIT:

Forgot to mention if your router has QoS engine enabled, use that, if not then look at Application Rules instead of normal Port Forwarding.

Failing that you can put a PC into the DMZ :P Last option but hey.

sorry for barging in guys. not sure if this is right thread..but since there's talk here off net connectivity etc. thought i'd ask.

i have a BB modem that has 4 LAN ports at the back and is a wireless router as well. i'm using a LAN cable to connect it to my laptop. how do i identify its port number in my system...u know like 54xxxx or something like that?

If DMZ is not working, then there is a problem somewhere blocking traffic to you.

When setting your ports did you allocate your local address to your PC? Perhaps that has changed since you first set the ports?

Failing that, maybe talk to your ISP.
