    Hi,

    I have a Belkin Router and have setup port forwarding on the router, but this seems to no longer work now I have installed Windows 7 - any ideas?

    The most likely thing that I could think of is that you set up the ports for a specific IP/IP range and you havn't set up Windows 7 to assign a static network IP to your machine.

    Your probably connecting to the router on an IP outside of the range that you have forwarded.
