Port Forwarding / Private IP wrong rang

HI

Today I had a Router BOB TM from iinet, its BELKIN Part # F1PI243EGau.

The issue is after I set it up and i gave it a static IP address which is 172.20.60.1 and a subnet mask 255.255.252.0 exactly as our Ips range, and internet works fine and everything is OK but when I go to port forwarding, like any machine it gives me the first three of the Ip, so if my IP range is 192.168.1.1 it will give me 192.168.1.___ and i put the number of the computer that i want to forward to. but in my situation its giving me 172.20.0.[] I cant change these numbers and right range of my ip is 172.20.60.0 to 172.20.62.254

Please Help
Thanks in Advance.

Can you still login to the Belkin on the local network via a web browser using the static IP 172.20.60.1?  If yes,  First make sure within the Router there are no Firewall Rules or Application rules that could be conflicting or showing a different network other than 172.20.60, if there is delete those rules if possible.

But the worst case scenario is to set the router back to factory defaults and then you can configure it how you desire. There should be a reset button on the back of the router, you need to use a pen or paper clip, but hold the reset button for 10 seconds and then release, the router will reset back to factory defaults.

Restart your computer then open a browser and go to this link: http://192.168.2.1 

The default user id should be: admin
The password should be blank

After resetting the Belkin device to factory defaults and in order to communicate with the router, you will have to have a direct ethernet cable connection from the computer to the router.

Now once wired go to the Control Panel, Network connections, right click the wired connection you are using and select Properties, find the TCP/IP V4 connection, highlight it and click the Properties button below it. For a temporary purpose you must assign a static IP address to your wired Ethernet connection that uses the same network. Example if the Belkin router is 192.168.2.1.  make sure you set your network card to a  static IP  of 192.168.2.99 or any valid address that begins with 192.168.2.X , subnet 255.255.255.0 and your gateway should be the router address 192.168.2.1.  

At this point you should be able to configure the router any way you want.

Hi there is no any firewall rules

I will reset the machine but I am very sure it will still the same,

I think its because my subnet mask is 255.255.252 its somthing to do with this and the range is 172.20.60.0 to 172.20.62.254

There should be no need to reset the router. The issue is with the static IP which is assigned to the router. you should assign a static ip within the range of the DHCP lease range under the LAN settings tab (for example 192.168.2.1).
