I've managed to get it work, but its werid. I'm currently connected to my T3200M wirelessly, using a port checker I can verify the minecraft server is running, however, im aslo connected via eithernet to my router (which is the child of the T3200M). When I disconnect from my T3200M wirelessly, the port closes. Super weird.
I have followed all instructions. DCHP and Port forwarding has been set.
Set to what?
Did you port forward on both routers?
You have not replied to whether you are running the Minecraft server on the pc that you are testing from.
I am running from the PC I have been testing on. Doesn't matter because I have another server and a friend to test off my network.
It matters because it explains why it works when you connect that PC to the T3200M.
DCHP has been set to my own local ip on my router, port has been set to TCP and the default minecraft port.
Assign your Asus router to a fixed (DHCP reserved) IP address on the T3200M
Assign your PC server to a fixed (DHCP reserved) IP address on the Asus router
Port forward like this:
T3200M --- [port forwarded to Asus router IP] ---> Asus Router --- [port forwarded to PC server IP] ---> PC server
I have the same routers and the above is how I set up my security camera server which has been working for many years.
As someone who has port forwarded with minecraft server on Telus internet, it is a pain. Your problem appears to not be using the T3200M modem/router for port forwarding. I also have an extra router for myself and I ran into this issue many times. Perhaps you could solve it by enabling router bridging within the admin panel settings, I'm not too sure if it would work since I never tried it with Telus bridging system, however, then the T3200M modem/router will be unusable in the sense of using it as a router.
Perhaps you could forward the port from one router to the other router, I'm however unsure if this is possible with Telus limited tools since they like to restrict our accessibility.
Go to the Asus router page that shows the MAC address for the external (WAN) port.
Go to the DHCP Reservation page on the T3200M and look for that MAC address in the drop down in step 1. The currently assigned IP should now be populated for step 2. Apply the change.
Follow a similar process on your Asus router to assign a reserved IP for your PC.
Then set up the port forwards on each router to the respective IP address.
So if your Asus router is getting an external IP then all you need is the port forward set up to the reserved IP of the PC when it is connect to the Asus router.
Another thing to check is whether the WAN IP shown on the Asus is the same as the IP shown from the port checking web site you use to see if you are behind carrier grade NAT.
