Port Forwarding with Google Home / Google WiFi

Community Member

I cannot get the Port Forwarding to work. I do have experience with port forwarding, before getting my Google WiFi pack just last week.


Setup: CenturyLink Fiber with CenturyLink Router/Modem with Google Wifi AC1200 Dual-Band Mesh Wi-Fi System (3-Pack).


ISP Modem/Router is set to Bridge Mode (so no double NAT).


Google Nest Wifi Router plugged in directly to ISP Modem and uses PPPoE.  Two additional Google Wifi routers through house for a Mesh. These two routers are in bridge mode.


My Desktop is plugged into an Ethernet port on one of the Mesh routers. 

I have a static IP assigned to my Desktop through the Google Home app.


On the Google Home app (via my IPHONE) I go into WiFi, Sprocket Wheel top right, scroll down to Advanced Networking, Port Management, then add in the ports 27015 -> 27030 for TCP/UDP – save.


I can search for my IP, and it lists the same IP on my Google Router (So again, no Double NAT).


I have disabled my firewall, and port forwarding testing still doesn't work. Still show closed (so it's not a firewall issue).


I check it here:  but it shows as closed still.

Need some other options for troubleshooting.

Where are all the Google Nest Community helpers?

I thought this was where you got official Google Home Wifi assistance. Since I have not received any assistance, does someone else know of a place I can find support?
