I have found that some times I get a "test network" failure once I am signed on to Smartlink. Some times it starts working again, if I power down the radio then power up. Sometimes I correct the problem by rebooting the router. Some times I correct the problem, resetting the radio. I can't ever seem to pin down what I have to do to get a pass. But trying different things seems to eventually solve the problem.
Thanks for the info.
It worked! SmartLink passed the forwarded ports test. I have a question and that is when I was in the router it only showed the mac address. Is there a way to have the router show the name of the device, i.e. Flex 6700 rather than the mac address?
Now I have to figure out how to use this SmartLink. I do have a Maestro which is attached to the network by a local gigi switch or via wi-fi.

Glad it has worked. I don't see a way to do that in the router. And I don't believe there is a way to give the radio a "name" like a pc would have. However, if you look at the lan status page in the router you can see the mac address with the IP address that is currently assigned to it. You can also see this in smart sdr in settings> radio setup> network.
Of course... I'm sure you know that you did not have to do this to your router to use the Maestro on your local lan/wifi. The router you have also has a "guest" wifi network that uses a different IP subnet, so you'll not see your flex from there. But you will have fun connecting to your radio from outside your network!!
One way to test it would be to setup a hotspot in your smartphone, connect a pc or laptop running smart sdr via wifi to the phone hotspot, and see if you can connect to your Flex that is running on your home network.
