Help with IP webcam port forwarding


Here is my problem I am trying to view my laptop webcam on my mobile phone when im not home

Program I use is Tinycam on cell phone and webcamxp on my laptop

I setup port forwarding on my verizon modem it will work when I am home and on my network but when I turn my wifi off on my phone and try to view my webcam on 4g network it does not work

so this is what I did and my info

Verizon modem - Actiontec GT784WN

Heres what I did
Went to
Then setup
Then port forwarding

Set the LAN port and IP information-
Starting port : 8080
Ending port : 8080
Lan ip address : ( that's my laptop ip )

Set the remote port and ip-

Starting port : 8090
Ending port : 8090
Set remote ip address :

Then in tinycam program
Picked webcamxp
Port: 8080

Now again it works with these setting when on my wifi network but will not load cam when on 3g or 4g

I also tried many other ports

I had this working when I had comcast and using my linksys wireless router but everything I do does not work

ANY help would be great been searching and trying all I could for a week not with no luck
