Hello guys, I'm new here and I hope that this is the right place to post my issue. I seem to have a problem with portforwarding with an Apple Airport router using a Windows XP OS... Here's the situation:

So I was trying to portforward using a dynamic IP (which should theoretically work,although I have to keep configuring the port forwarding each time I boot up) by copying my particular IP assigned for a particular duration (finding the ip through command prompt as well as PFPortChecker, which both matched).

I then went to Airport Utility, then the Port Mapping section of the menu. However, during the next menu, I can't seem to properly type in my IP in the Private IP Address section of the edit Port Mapping menu since the menu took up the 4th numerical digits of the private IP address input (see picture and compare with picture above).

Can someone tell me how to fix this problem? thanks.
