Ahrrr.... It's too complicated for me... Actually I hate my ADSL Modem-Router, because it has bunch of settings for hell knows what. Moreover, since this thing came from ISP it has modified firmware (Lithuanian version) so all settings are adapted to my ISP requirements... And... Seems it is rare enough model too... MT820

I was nicely surprised: even with torrent working this port was not reported as OPEN by auditmypc.com scanner
If you're behind a router, the results are masked, for sure. They should state this in their website.

Ylap, can't you go back to English in your Modem settings language and post screenshots?
Is there any website with screenshots in English?

It's in English, but... Now somethings wrong with it. It just started blocking itself constantly when I'm connected...after some time all indicators lits up, and I need to re-turn it on to connect again. And I can't get into config page, it's not opening anymore.... seems it f*** a lot. Pressed RESET button, but it keeps blocking...

It's from user manual. Currently I'm fighting with constant self blocking and not responding....

I don't think I'm going to touch configuration settings of what thing... Not responding problem started as I opened config... Now, after several resets to factory settings it seems to work fine again till this moment... Hope it is going to stay in the current state  ;D

Your IP address is 192.168.1.1 and this is the one that must be allowed into Comodo settings, i.e., your LAN IP.
