Question about Arris SURFboard SBG900 Wireless Router (DHSBG900)
I've recently moved and I now rent a Motorola SBG900 wireless router from my cable/internet provider. Since I've got here I'm unable to play poker online with PokerStars on my laptop and I'm unable to log on to the PlayStation Network with my PS3 although I can get them both online and use the internet brower.
The PS3 will find the IP address and connect to the internet, but it fails to log me into the PlayStation Network. I'm thinking this is similar to my PokerStars problem which the router isn't letting this through.
When I went back to the hometown this last weekend I brought my laptop and to my surprise, without changing any setting on my laptop I used my friend's wireless internet and my computer worked fine, PokerStars and all. That's why I've narrowed it down to this router.
PokerStars software uses two port numbers by default: 26002 and 443. If possible could I get someone to e-mail me a step by step process or possibly send me a website link on how to open these ports on my router. Also, if you know how to get my Playstation Network to go online I would appreciate that also.
Thank you for reading this problem and I look forward to hearing back from you.
Go to portforward.com, find your router in the product list and follow the instructions. Works for me everytime.
