I started using the Blue Iris mobile app and setup remote viewing and went through the UnPn and its works but then a day later its not working again. I have to re-do the UnPn step and then it works temporarily again. Would this be a Blue Iris config issue or an issue with my router? My ip address has not changed and I am not using a different port. My router is a TP-Link Archer C9 on latest firmware.

I am debating on buying a new wireless router if anyone has any suggestions anyway.

Using upnp is a serious security risk. Turn it off in everything. Don't forward ports, see here: wiki to secure your network.

At the very least, disable UPnP and learn how to forward your port manually. If your router has a built-in VPN server, learn how to use that instead (and still turn off UPnP).

+1 on this. If you want a new router check out the Asus line
