A simple userscript to do the job would be written specifically for the website and job you wish to do.

A userscript is simply a block of javascript that is added to a page when it loads. It can easily be written to load an image from a link, save it once it has been loaded, and then click on a link to go to the next one.
And here my prombles start: I have literally no experience with JS.
From the sound of it, it should only be a few lines of code. I could write it for you later today.
The first option didn't work, with NAT-PMP/UPnP enabled on uTorrent and no forwarding rules.

I tried to use the router as a switch, at first I didn't know what it was, but I researched it and I think I understood, I disabled 2 DHCP related settings, then the cable that was to connect to the WAN, I connect to the LAN along with computer cable, but after this appears Status "Disconnected" and "check the WAN port connection", and I have no internet access, I think I may have misunderstood, or the router does not support.

The other only has one entry, and it's LAN, that connects to the router's WAN.

I have a router from another brand, D-link, I never used it, I tried to configure it today after resetting it, but for some reason it didn't work, I got the login and password from the ISP, put it in almost the same settings as the other, still without internet.

I tried to assign a static IP, I put the range from 100 to 150 and the computer a static ip with the end .222.

uTorrent I use the old version, from 2011 I think, but I'll try now with qBitorrent.

Lastly I tried DMZ, it also didn't work, it's probably me doing something wrong.

But before I didn't have all that difficulty, I forgot to say it yesterday, but I updated the modem firmware last year, I'll try to download the previous one, the modem manufacturer's website is not working, I find out which ports were I used, 8999, 65535, 13363, 42688.

I called my ISP, they didn't know what I was talking about, I gave up

Okay, I'm younger than you (by one year) but I beat you when it comes to old hard- and software :) The first computer I regularly got a hand on ran on DOS 4.01, Win 2.1 and used Hercules Graphics. What was that? 720x200 or 720x400? It was monochrome, though.
I got you all beat....the first computer I worked on was a PDP11/03 with 8 inch floppies - the monitor was an RS-232 Terminal, we had both a DEC writer for hard copy and a VT100 Terminal.....We also had a PDP-7 which ran "Space wars" on a vector display. It was a right of passage to make your own game console controller - it had 4 switches: thruster, turn right, turn left and Fire.

Sounds like you were not on the right track at all.

I advise against doing that.

On which device?

I had suggested disabling UPnP/NAT-PMP in your software and forwarding ports on both routers. But it sounds like you didn't try that. DMZ is basically like forwarding all ports that aren't specifically forwarded elsewhere. If you're going to do that, I'd suggest only doing it on your outer router. Though if you have DMZ as an option on your outer router, that would be ideal.

Well, if you can answer all these questions, I can tell you step by step what to do to get everything to work:
1) What are the model numbers of your 2 routers?
2) If one of those routers is not a modem, what is the model number of your modem?
3) How many devices do you have connected to each router?
4) Are the routers at the same physical location?
5) Where is your WiFi extender in this setup and what are you using it for?
6) What subnets are you using on the two routers?
7) Do you have any computers, printers, or other devices that use static IPs? If so, why are they static and what are their IPs?

*Edit:
8) What is the model number of the third router which you don't use?
Zolxys said:

On the router

1) What are the model numbers of your 2 routers?
Router L1-RW332

2) If one of those routers is not a modem, what is the model number of your modem?
The modem has no numbering, I looked everywhere in the modem, only says "Nexu Networks" in the front, and "EPON ONU" below, I'll post some image of him bellow.

3) How many devices do you have connected to each router?
1 modem and 1 router, the extender has no cable attached to it.

4) Are the routers at the same physical location?
Except the WiFi extender, the modem and the router is close to each other.

5) Where is your WiFi extender in this setup and what are you using it for?
My brother asked to put one to see if the signal improves in his room, the extender is on his bedroom door.

6) What subnets are you using on the two routers?
This number? 255.255.255.255, if yes I'm not sure if it is in both, CMD shows 255.255.255.0.

7) Do you have any computers, printers, or other devices that use static IPs? If so, why are they static and what are their IPs?
Only on this computer, is static to not change automatically by the router and the DMZ not work, also for port forwarding, the IP is 192.168.0.222 or the public IP?

8) What is the model number of the third router which you don't use?
DI-524

Edit: The WiFi extender model is L1-RW312n

Yeah, I use 2 routers, not to mention a wireless repeater, one the main router and the other for WiFi
You had originally said you use two routers. Now I see you only use one.

A modem with only one LAN port should not be a router. And since your WiFi router is set to connect via PPPoE, it should be connecting directly to the ISP.

The image shows you forwarding the port to 192.168.0.100. Double check what IP your forwarding rules are set for and double check what your local IP is. If you're forwarding the ports to the wrong IP, then it would never work even with UPnP or NAT-PMP or DMZ.

BTW, I'd advise against using DMZ in your case.
---
Now that I understand your setup better, here are a few things you can try (Best to try these in the order listed):

A) As mentioned above, make sure you aren't forwarding the ports to the wrong IP.

B) Try a different random port in uTorrent. Don't forward any ports or set any rules. Just let UPnP handle that and see if it works right with another port.

C) Forward a random port to your computer (one that you have NOT used with uTorrent). Also, open Windows Firewall and create incoming rules to allow that port. Then go to an online port checker to see if the port is open.

If the port isn't open, then either:
a) You messed up somewhere
b) You have another firewall installed
c) Your router is broken and won't acknowledge the port forwarding rules
d) Your ISP is blocking most or all ports (I've heard of that happening before)

If the port is open, turn off the option in uTorrent that adds a Firewall rule. Then close and re-open uTorrent and then set it to use that port you opened.

D) I see in one of your screenshots that your connection to your ISP uses PPPoE. That means your router needs a username and password in order to connect. If you know the username and password (and the Gateway IP for your ISP), you can try a factory reset for your router.

NOTE: The Gateway IP you will need for your ISP does NOT start with "192.168.0".

You can use the DNS server your ISP provides, or you can just use 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4.

E) Find someone local who can come over and check it out in person.

*Edit:
Actually, I took for granted that you set up your computer correctly to use a static IP. Though, if you still have trouble, I should look at your IPv4 settings as well.

Okay, I just installed Tampermonkey in my Firefox. Requirements are met to automate saving of images and following the link to the next page . . .

I'd be very happy to get a code snippet I can then customize for the certain site(s) I want to use it on. Oh, and I'd like to have a small delay between saving the image and going on to the next page.

I thought that modem and router were the same thing, yesterday researching some things I saw that it was different, so I started using modem, my mistake.

The image shows you forwarding the port to 192.168.0.100. Double check what IP your forwarding rules are set for and double check what your local IP is. If you're forwarding the ports to the wrong IP, then it would never work even with UPnP or NAT-PMP or DMZ.

That day was correct, every time I try, I assign another static IP.

A) As mentioned above, make sure you aren't forwarding the ports to the wrong IP.
ok

As soon as I finish uploading here, I'll reset the modem and try and update here.

I just noted I got suggested to use a UNIX derivative for my file server. Well, I already played with that thought. But I want an OS with an absolute minimal footprint (read: space on HDD and in RAM). Like, a linux kernel and only the absolute neccesary stuff to access files from a Windows 10 machine. Hell, the server doesn't even need a GUI and only needs to be configurable at the text console until network works, further configuration can be done remotely.

Any ideas? Suggestions? And keep in mind that Charly has almost no experience with linux yet.
I know it's been 3 years now, but how are you doing?
Linux world is evolving rapidly.
I would suggest going for Arch linux or Kiss linux, if you want a pure bare-bones system.
Setting up vsftpd or sshd server is quite easy after that.
Oh, yeah, on that regard ... I opted for FreeNAS and it works like a charm. At least what I use it for.
B) Try a different random port in uTorrent. Don't forward any ports or set any rules. Just let UPnP handle that and see if it works right with another port.
I deleted the rules at the firewall and reset the router, the random port is 36550,

C) Forward a random port to your computer (one that you have NOT used with uTorrent). Also, open Windows Firewall and create incoming rules to allow that port. Then go to an online port checker to see if the port is open.

I also consider this possibility, but I did it before and it worked, I wonder what went wrong.

I use the Windows 7 firewall, could that be it ?, the support for windows 7 is over

I'll try one last time the other D-link router

It could be that, but when I call for technical assistance, they say they don't know what I'm talking about, although this technical assistance as much as they say is, unplug the modem for 1 minute and try again.

D) I see in one of your screenshots that your connection to your ISP uses PPPoE. That means your router needs a username and password in order to connect. If you know the username and password (and the Gateway IP for your ISP), you can try a factory reset for your router.

Ok, I'll try with the other router too

You can use the DNS server your ISP provides, or you can just use 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4.
I put it

E) Find someone local who can come over and check it out in person.
I know a person who maybe knows how to solve it, I'll speak on whatsapp, he lives far away.

No. There should be nothing wrong with that firewall. When I said you might have another firewall, I meant there might be a second firewall installed. For example, if you have a security suite or something like that, it might have it's own firewall that you'll need to open the ports in as well.

"DHCP Enabled": That shows that you're not using a static IP.

I don't think that's the cause of the problem you're having though. But if you find a solution that requires you to have a static local IP, you'll need to fix that.

And just to be clear, you would disable DHCP in your computer's network adapter IPv4 settings. (Leave DHCP enabled on your router)
I disabled DHCP on windows, but for now I'll leave it aside, utorrent too, I'll wait a few days and try again, but thanks for trying to help me and for your time, anything I come back here.

The port 2000 is open, I think it has always been, I haven't tested it yet.

That would suggest your problem is either your ISP or a second firewall installed on your system. 2000 is a port that is commonly open by default in firewalls. It's used by certain VoIP technologies. But if it's open for you with just DMZ (no port forwarding rules) and you don't use any VoIP software on your computer specifically, then you must not have anything that's using it. In that case, go ahead and use that port.

Once you have it working, I suggest specifically forwarding port 2000 to your computer and turning off DMZ.

Also, in the IPv4 settings on your computer, the subnet mask should be 255.255.255.0.

Got it, although the symbol on utorrent didn’t turn green, on the 2 sites I tested it says I’m "connectable", so I think it worked.

If i wanted to play skyrim on my computer but i didnt have a good graphics card what kind of graphics card would you suggest ( think cheap plz) Also i have one in mind its called the evga- GTS450. But im not sure if it would be good enough to run the game on decent or better than decent graphics.
