    ok now i think the problem is port forwarding,so i need to forward some ports.
    but whenever i try to open router settings by going to 192.168.1.1,it opens by modem(bettle) settings.
    a wire from my modem goes into my wifi router and then a wire from router goes into my pc.
    so how to know the ipaddress of my router.
    it is a Dlink DIR-300
    please help guys.

    did you do a traceroute to see where it's dying? Maybe that won't help too much since you can prolly ping the server, but the ports are getting blocked.

    also if your modem is 1.1 your router will most likely be 192.168.1.2, or 192.168.2.1

    you can also use netstat -an to see which ports are open on your side.

    To make things faster try to telnet to to the Filezilla host on the port you're trying to hit. its Telnet IP PORT

    connection refused means that nothing is running on that port (its not open)
    accepted means that something is running on that port (you're fine)
    timeout means that a firewall is blocking access

    nvm looked it up... try:

    "traceroute filezilla-project.org" (from the command prompt)

    and your router IP will pop up, paste a screenie if you dont know which one it is. Its usually the first or second one.

    traceroute is not recognized as internal or external command

    Modem might just be a simple bridge, what is the WAN IP of your router/AP? If that's the same as your external IP you can ignore the modem. Google what's my IP or something to compare.

    Be more specific.

    So is the routers WAN IP the sme as your external IP? If so, what exactly did you forward? Are you using passive mode FTP? Perhaps ake a screenshot of the page with the port forwards.

    Assuming your server has IP 192.168.1.1 that seems correct. Are you using a passive connection? Can you even connect locally at all?
