Have you checked your new router to see what default rules are enabled there?

Some routers may come with blocks for common attack vectors, against the router 
itself or the local network, that may need to be disabled if you want to allow 
connections from other systems.

The router may have been setup or used by the selling org, or a customer, and 
returned and resold.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
