[Help Me] Di-604: can't stealth ports 445, 135

I have a Di-604 w/the latest firmware (I think), which is 3.53 , Wed, 18 Apr 2007. I have successfully used virtual server to forward any WAN requests on port 113 to an unused IP address on the internal LAN. When I try to do this w/ports 445 or 135, TCP protocol the ports are closed according to Shields UP, instead of being stealthed. I tried shutting down all computers and the router then powering them all off and then bringing up the Di-604 first. No soap.

This might be past any thing that can be fixed as this would be a FW issue.

Curious why your having VS point to a unused IP address for 113?

Your router is out of date and probably doesn't have the newer security patches that newer routers have. If this is a security concern for you, I recommend getting into something new, like a DIR-645, 655 or 636L.

Could this be a uPnP issue? Can you turn uPnP off on the DI-604 and see what happens?

uPnP is turned off on the Di-604. I just don't understand why it will stealth port 113, but not 445 and 135.

There is a very good possibility that your ISP (or your ISP's "modem") is filtering ports 445 and 135, and that is why you can't get the D-Link router to read stealth for an on-line scan. If your ISP (or their "modem") is filtering those ports, the GRC scan is not even reaching your D-Link router, so it makes no difference how you configure it. I suggest looking at the configuration in the modem/gateway for the reason for not being able to get a stealth condition for ports 445 and 135 (although the ISP could still be filtering those ports before it even reaches the "modem").

What model ISP modem do you have?
What ISP service do you have?

I get it the DI-604 has been a warrior for a very long time. It's difficult sometimes to say good bye to older faithful equipment. Perhaps it's time to update/upgrade your hardware? a DI-604 is in networking a dinosaur

I hear ya I actually still have an old DI-524 flashed wit DI-624 firmware in a box. It works just fine for a bg router, but otherwise worthless. I tried to give it away and no one would take it, lol
