No NAT should be on.

The usual configuration is NAT on the router and the modem in bridge mode. The alternative would be the modem acting as a NAT router and the router acting as a switch/wireless access point. Either way, whatever is doing NAT needs to forward the port.

The modem is in bridge mode? Are you sure you have the correct addresses for everything?

Probably double NAT then. What kind of modem is it?

Hm. Missed where you said the modem and router were one unit. It's not double NAT in that case. Try disabling the firewall on the router.

ok i used a different port checker and it says "port filtered" which means its connecting to host but packets cant be sent due to firewall blockage

Do you have UDP 19800 open on both the router's firewall and Windows' firewall?

If you have the port forwarded and open on all firewalls it should be working. Try having someone connect to it. There's a good chance the port checker isn't giving good results. Hard to see how it'd even work for UDP.
