Need to open ports 123, 500, and 4500 on my NetGear router?

Recently switched to T-Mobile cell service and they provided me with a personal signal booster to increase my office coverage. The device is trying to turn on and boot up via the NetGear router and is being blocked. I've been instructed to open ports 123, 500, and 4500 on the router, and they should be "opened" not "forwarded". How do I accomplish this?

You need to allow the IP of the booster in the NetGear router for the ports to be "open" for it. The IP will be your router's DHCP settings. The ports must also not be "reserved" for other devices/functions. Port Forwarding and Open are the same term. Some NetGear routers come with these ports open by default. Your only issue is probably that the DHCP settings need to be allowed.

Opening ports on Netgear N750 D6000?

I need to open certain ports but cannot figure this out. I can figure out how to forward ports, but this is only good for one device being connected. Being that I have two devices accessing the same ports at the same time, I need these to be open at all times. I am figuring that port triggering will not allow this either?

I can not get my two ports 27015 and 42303 to open. Need them open for a game. primal hunter. have XFINITY modem and Netgear router?

Netgear router and XFINITY modem must have two ports open for primal hunter. 27015 and 42303. I have tried: Went into router admin and advanced port forwarding and added a connection to port forward both ports. I think it was caused by: Did not work, game does not show them open

You also will need to have a public IP. This requires you to ask for your IP to be made public through your internet provider. Port 8766 also needs to be open so configure that first to see if the game then works. Instead of port 42303 try port 32303 as well.

I have an internet station where people log in to voice track shows, so the port I need to reopen just won't reopen.. Why?

I need a open port on my Netgear router.. it reset and now I can't get it to open up again. internet station and people log in to it shows.. SO what could be keeping it closed. I checked antivirus, then I checked firewall to allow program to function, it still won't work..

You need to configure a Static IP in your router for it to remain open at all times. Since you need this to remain open all the time for internet traffic, consider installing Simple Port Forwarding to help keep the port open.

Set a Port Forward of 0.0.0.0. Especially if Comcast is your internet provider. You can read about setting up firewalls in a NetGear router here.

PS4 and Netgear Nighthawk AC1900?

Hi, can't get the PS4 to connect to the internet via LAN. My old ASUS RT-Ac66u did not require any special config. Seems this router does. Are we talking port forwarding now and if so is there a good article for setup of that, such as do I have to forward every port?. I have tried: Wireless and it works but it's super slow (8.4mbps down, 486kbps up). I have a 10MB connection so this should be way faster which is why I want a direct LAN.. I think it was caused by: New router

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

You are probably using a Crossover cable for the LAN. A PC can adjust this cable but the PS4 can not. Also, in Network Settings you will need to reset for LAN instead of WiFi. Manually assign a static IP for the PS4 within the DCHP of your router. Update your Nighthawk router to the latest firmware.

How do I open ports 1080 to 1092 on my Netgear router for my Samsung Blu-ray player?

Netgear N600 Wireless Dual Band router. I have tried: Called Samsung, who told me to get the Blu-ray connected to the internet again, I would need to open those ports on the router. Called my ISP, Charter, but they said they could not log into my router because it was a private purchase. Called Netgear, but they want to charge me a lot of money.. I think it was caused by: According to Samsung, ISPs recently changed what ports are open.

How to get two Xbones to have open net on a local network?

We've been trying to figure out how to use port triggering to make both Xbox's have open net but can't get it to work right, suggestions?. I have tried: We've tried opening the routers port forwarding/triggering advanced option and adding services for the ports MS support said where needed for destiny on the ONE. As well as contacted our ISP to have them open the same ports.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Your router will need to be able to support UPnP. The best way to set this up for both Xboxes is to use a [Virtual DD WRT router. You will need a PC with 2 network cards for this to work and Microsoft's Hyper-V. Once you hear back from your ISP then you can begin the process.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

The reason for the Virtual DD WRT is that some games only use one port. Other times, your Xboxes will fail communication. It also eliminates constantly updating the settings depending on a game.
