I had the same problem, where I thought I needed to open the ports on my Wireless-G (for bittorrent downloads). Turns out, I had to open the ports on my DSL modem instead. After that, the port forwarding worked properly.

Hope this helps - please remember to rate :)

Need find out how portforward can you tell me how udp and tcp ports open


Here is the solution to help you out to do the port forwarding as you wished sir..


2wire-gateway-1921681254-300x234.png Once you have accessed your default gateway screen for your router, you will then want to click on the firewall tab at the top of the screen. After the firewall summary screen opens, you will then click on the firewall settings tabs to begin setting up an open port on your 2wire dsl router.
2wire-firewall-300x234.png Once the firewall setting screen opens you can then add an open port to your specific pc. Under step 2 you will see a list of predefined applications that have already been created for certain video games, servers and telephony (VoIP) services. Since in my example we are opening a port for Utorrent, we are going to manually configure port forwarding for one of my pc's. To be opening a port for Utorrent, click on "add new user-defined application" you can find the link just below the list on the left side of the screen.
2wire-edit-firewall-settings-300x234.png Once you click on add new user-defined application, you should have a window that resembles the one below. Within this window you should now be able to enter a name for the application that you are opening a port for. Underneath the application name, you know have the choice of either tcp or udp, and then you would enter a port number or a port range that you want to open up.
2wire-add-user-definition-300x234.png For security reasons, you should only open one port, unless the application specifies otherwise. The more ports that you have open on you router, the more doorways you open for hackers and viruses to enter your home network. Since we are opening a port for Utorrent, you are going to want to click on the tcp box and then enter the port number that Utorrent gives you, in my example I am opening up port number 51225. After you have entered you port number, click the add definition button. Once you have added the definition, you are going to then click on the back button.
2wire-utorrent-open-tcp-port-300x234.png After you have clicked the back button, you should now be at the edit firewall settings screen. All you have to do now is select your computer from the list that is listed After you have selected the computer that Utorrent will be hosted on, all you have to do is find the recently created user defined definition from the list under number 2. After you have located the Utorrent port forwarding application simply click on the add button, which should assign the Utorrent port forwarding application to your computer. After you have completed the above steps, you should be all set; now your Utorrent program should download and upload at a faster speed.


I have used Uttorent as an Example for you to have an idea how to do the work.. if you still have any problems or question just send a message i will get to you as soon as possible..

If you like the answer and it helped you please like the answer, it will be a great help.. Thanks

Tip

Speedup uTorrent client with Norton and McAfee Firewall Tweaking


Make sure that the following are set in your NIS to ensure that peers can connect to you and prevent intrusion prevention warnings.

Make sure uTorrent is added to the NIS firewall and contains these two rules:
  1. Inbound Rule to permit TCP and UDP connections from any computer
  2. Outbound Rule to permit TCP and UDP connections to any computer
You must also make sure that you deselect the following in the Advanced Security Settings this is required even if the port forward test gives a positive result.
  1. Stealth Blocked Ports
  2. Invalid TCP Destination Port
  3. Invalid TCP Source Port
In Norton you must also Deselect MS Windows H.323 BO (2) signatures on the Intrusion Prevention Signature Exclusions page of the Intrusion Protection Advanced Configuration

How do I change the NAT setting to open?


Hello and welcome to FixYa.

My guess is that you are looking for port forwarding (eg: port 80 to host a webserver, or maybe a utorrent port for torrent downloads).

These are my suggestions for this issue in general (Assuming you first logged in to your router administration panel. Usually located @ address 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.254 depending on manufacturer can be located underneath the router on a sticker, along with the default admin console password and username):

1. Please enable UPnP to set NAT to open.
2. Goto the port forwarding section (might also be called Virtual server section etc.) and do a port forward using the IP of the computer you need to open port to, with TCP port 80 or 8080 or utorrent port or the number of the port you may need in general.

Please tell me how much did that help you.

More info on this matter that might be helpful can be found==> here

Thanks.

Problem opening port for utorrent with DGL 4300 router


You must set static IP on your computer where the utorrent is installed. Make sure no firewalls are enabled on your computer like windows firewall or any other firewall like norton, mcaffe, zone alarm and the likes. You should forward the port on separate protocol. Go to portforward.com for more information on how to forward port for utorrent

Firewall/ports


Hello there, you only need to open a port for utorrent, if you use a Router device for sharing your internet connection to more than 1 computer. If you do indeed own a router then you will need to log-in to it, via your web browser and change the necessary settings to forward the port that utorrent uses, to your local computers address.

Please write again if you need more support.

Hope this helps.

Utorrent downloads with WRT54GL?


Before we can forward ports for Utorrent, we need to figure out what ports Utorrent is using. Here is a brief walkthrough on how to do that. Go ahead and open up Utorrent.
utorrentmainmenu.jpg

Click Options in the menu at the top of your screen. In the list that drops down click Preferences.
utorrentnetworkoptions.jpg

Click Connections on the left hand side of the Utorrent program. You should now see the menu shown in the screenshot above. Make sure the Enable UPnP box is unchecked. The number in the Port Used for Incoming Connections box contains the port you need to forward. You can change the port number, if you want to. Please enter the port you chose into the box below.
Utorrent's Port for incoming connections To setup port forwarding on this router your computer needs to have a static ip address. Take a look at our Static IP Address guide to setup a static ip address. When you are finished setting up a static ip address, please come back to this page and enter the ip address you setup in the Static IP Address box below.

Do not skip this step! Please enter the static ip you want to forward to: 192.168.1.
wrt54gl0.jpg

Open a web browser like internet explorer or Netscape. Enter the ip address of your router in the address bar of your browser. In the picture above the address bar has http://www.google.com in it. Just replace all of that with the ip address of your router. By default the ip address should be set to 192.168.1.1.

wrt54gl1.jpg

You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now. By default the username is blank, and the password is admin. Click the Ok button to log in to your router.

wrt54gl2.jpg

Click the Security link near the top of the page.

wrt54gl3.jpg

Remove the checkmark from the Block Anonymous Internet Requests checkbox.
Click the Save Settings button near the bottom of the page.
Click the Applications & Gaming link near the top of the page.
You should now see a new menu. In this new menu, click Port Range Forward.

wrt54gl4.jpg

Port Range Application Start End Protocol IP Address Enable To Both 192.168.1. We will list a series of lines here that will show you exactly how to forward the ports you need to forward. Utorrent requires you to forward the ports you entered above. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the Port Range Forward menu.
When you're finished, click Save Settings near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.

And that's it! You're done!

Forwarding from seimens 5830 how to get access


Hi,
You havent suggested what site you are wanting to forward one of your routers ports too, most people make this request for torrent download and/or gaming experience/improvement. Either way you need to know what port the software you are wanting to open a port for is currently using so you can tell your router which port to allow unchecked access.

I use this very informative support website for port resource info, click this link and choose your router type, in your case select Speedstream-5450 which will be the same setup as the 5830

http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm

That should take you to this page

http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Siemens/Speedstream-5450/Speedstream-5450index.htm

Then select the software you are wanting to open the port for.IE: Utorrent or world of warcraft Etc... That will then open a detailed walkthrough on setting up rules for your routers port activity. You will need to follow the guide for each port you open, if the guide is not listed for the exact software you are using just read through the one supplied for Utorrent and change the port numbers to the ones you are using.
The software you are using should show you what port is in use at the time you are using it, some software may use a different port everytime you open the software or allow you to allocate a port permanently (which is not recommended safe internet practice especially if your ISP supplies your connection via a STATIC IP address, most use a DHCP allocated IP address)
Failing that you can find the port currently in use information using the command prompt- for winXP and Vista type c:/netstat-b for win2000 type c:/netstat-p Look for the software you are using it will be on the left hand side and look something like [Utorrent.exe] follow the line of info too the right and look for the 4-5 digit port number.

Wheeeew, Good Luck :0)
