So I've been trying to port-forward my IP with 25565, but my router is seriously strange. From 3 sites and 2 programs, I have gathered that this information is vital:


Default Gateway:


Subnet Mask:

I notice that DNS and default gateway are... Strange as hell. This is exactly how they appear when I run cmd with ipconfig /all. According to my tutorials, they are meant to be normal numbers like my IP address... Any help?
Note that I have bound everything correctly according to two programs except changing my Local IP to Static (yet according to the internet I already did...) and I haven't added the ports to the firewall yet.

That looks like some kind of IPv6 addresses: – MoonSire Nov 22 '13 at 4:26
Those pretty certainly are ipv6 addresses - I think having more information on your network topology is going to help – Journeyman Geek Nov 22 '13 at 5:02
My default gateway is the same as my IPv6 address, know how to change that? It has the IPv4 underneath though... Any ideas about the DNS servers? – One Terrorist Nov 22 '13 at 5:24

These multicast IPv6 addresses are reserved for autodiscovery of DNS servers:


Moreover, the symbol %1 identifies the first Ethernet interface.

See "IPv6 Stateless DNS Discovery" and "Representing IPv6 Zone Identifiers in Address Literals and Uniform Resource Identifiers".
