I am having problems with port forwarding. I have a Buffalo G54 router. I keep getting an error when try adding the values 80 to the NAT table. I have included a link to a 750kb video to show my problem.

Any ideas will be very welcome

You are using port 80(HTTP) to configure the router.
To NAT port 80 on the network, you need to change the management port on the router to something else. For eg. 8080.

Thank you knightrider2ks. Just as I was thinking I was getting to grips with this networking thing! I'm not sure how to change the settings as you suggest?

You need to check the manual. Usually it is under management/administration.

If remote management is not enabled, and/or it uses a different remote management port by default it might not be an issue, but worth checking the management port.
But I did notice you didn't add the LAN IP of the HTTP server you wanted to forward the port 80 traffic to. ("IP address of LAN" - "Manual setting" enter IP)
Appears in the video you are aware of the following site but if not:

Should you need to set the WAN/Internet access, remote web management port, I believe you do so under;
 WAN Setting | Network of WAN | Port number for WEB setting
It appears if you leave it blank, it is disabled by default. Unless you need this feature, leaving it disabled, reduces security risks.

Thank you for your comments. My PC is still out of action so I cannot solve the problem yet. Is it feasible to split the points at this stage since you have both pointed me in the right direction? I will take a gamble. Many thanks knightrider2k2 and RobWill.
