DIR-655 won't allow port 25565 to be open


I am trying to set up a Minecraft server at home. I have followed the port-warding instructions, but when I have some try to connect to the server; it does not work at all. I use a port tool to test it and it shows that it isn't open. I try opening a different port (port 80), the port tool shows it is working.

I don't think it had any firmware updates.
Firmware version: 9.1.103J6TW2
No factory reset, but I have turned it off and back on for past issues.
My ISP is cable. The modem is a Motorola
All devices already have their own IP.
The layout does not have advance. It uses Arris.

What ISP Modem model # do you have?

What is the Fw version you have on the DIR-655 router?
