Re: Port Forwarding Stopped Working.
What's the status of UPnP in the router? Disable it.
Go to Advanced / Universal Plug and Play, then uncheck "Allow Other Network Users to Control Wireless Broadband Router's Network Features".
Checking to make sure I read you correctly: uTorrent network status shows green but uTorrent's website-based port test fails, and PortForward's port test program also fails? You've changed ports but that doesn't work?
I'm not sure what your comment on checkmark boxes signify. Settings in uTorrent?
PC remote access basically lets someone else use their keyboard, mouse and screen to control your PC. It's the same as if they were sitting there at your desk. If you have Windows running, it may already be enabled. Other non-Microsoft programs like it require a port forward on your router. It may be possible for someone to look at your PC to try to find the source of the problem. Liability issues abound with unknown third-parties across the internet, so you really want to use local resources.

UPnP tends to have a tendency to override or otherwise delete port forwards all together. Generally when port forwarding it's a good idea to switch it off or to deny changes using it.
