So i recently tried to use port forwarding to set up a server for minecraft, i logged into my router and went to port forwarding i finally found my pc and attempted to port forward however when my pc comes up there is no ip address listed, only a mac address therefore it will not let me add ports or protocol's it just says something went wrong please try again later, i do not understand why this is happening i can port forward any other device except for my pc.

    Hello @XeroMarks and welcome to the forums!

    Could you tell us what type of router you're using? Is it one you purchased? Or is it one that we provided you?

    When you go to get the IP address for your PC, where exactly are you going to obtain the information?

    Are you able to connect to the internet on that computer? If you go to your command prompt

    do you see an IP listed?
