I found this web site DSL/Cable Webserver when I was searching the Internet today and I thought it might help you also.

It has some very clear and in depth instructions on your topic and checking out the menu items in the left frame, in particularly the Router item, must surely give you a solution for your issue.

Please let us know if you find this site useful and a solution.

Hello and welcome Nightshift. :)

As additional/alternative reference, you might like to also look at

I'm assuming that the problem is accessing the XAMPP server from outside the LAN. Therefore, I believe the router should run a 'virtual server' and send the network traffic to/from your XAMPP server. It can be very easy or frustrating.

Note: Saying '.. al ports are open, i also tryd with the firewall off .." seems a little contradictory. I raise this because having a fire wall, which normally blocks ports _itself_, somewhere forgotten or unknown can cause much heartache. In other words, be sure that _all_ firewalls are off between you,,, than asap, get them back on!

Good luck.
