To do this, you need to acess your router by going to
It will ask you for a password and username, and if it is set to the default password and you do not know it, you can get it at
After, look for a Port Fowarding or Port Ranging menu.
Input 5001 for Start and End and set it to both TCP and UDP.
after save and exit, and you are done.

Why do incoming calls on my samsung galaxy pocket come up as unknown?

If you imported all your sim contacts &google contacts the phone might now hav some numbers duplicated or even tripled and then does not know which name to display when you receive a call from a number listed on multiple accounts. Go to your contacts & check all the boxes to display all possible contacts you hav- sim, google, phone, sd card, etc. Go through the list &try to take out all the numbers listed under more than one contact name! Even if it is the same name! It takes some time to sort out if you hav a lot of contacts, but that fixed my problem! Good luck!

Device for You view

That's really hard to do without running long cords from room to room. IF you are able to do that that is probably your simplest and cheapest solution. You would take the output(the cord(s) you plug into the tv) from the you view and run them through a device that splits that connection at least twice(most electronics store should have something for this. Then you run one set of cords to your current tv and another set to your other tv.

THe only other solution I know of is a lot more expensive. It's called a slingbox and what it does is stream anything you plug into it to the internet. They are pretty simple to set up and they have good tech support if you have problems. To get it to your other tv you would need a smart tv or a blueray player or streaming device with a slingplayer app. once you have the slingplayer set up you just sign into it on your second tv and your good to go. One cool thing about slingplayer is you can watch it absolutely everywhere where there is internet and even on android and apple devices. It also has a feature where you can remote control pretty much any device from pretty much anywhere so if your on the go you can switch channels. This solution however is costly as the slingplayer is going to set you back at least $200 and if you don't have a smart tv or streaming device that can set you back anywhere from $50 to $200.

Cannot connect remotly to the slingbox

Hi! I will be more than glad to assist you in this concern. please check this first at your sisters house..
If you are at home of your sister and are not seeing your Slingbox in the SlingPlayer Slingbox Directory, one of two things are going on:

1. The Slingbox is not properly connecting to your router.
2. You have security software on your computer preventing it from talking to the Slingbox.
3. The network connection to your Slingbox is broken.

If the issue is that the Slingbox is not properly connecting to your router, the network light on the front of the Slingbox will either be off or be blinking.

If the network light on the front of your Slingbox is on, then the issue is probably virus or firewall software.

Your Slingbox is all set up, the Network light is on and still you can't find it in your Slingbox Directory in SlingPlayer.

Most of the time if you are at home and in this situation, the problem can be narrowed down to one of the following:

* Your router or router configuration has changed since you plugged in your Slingbox.
* Security software on your computer is preventing your Slingbox from communicating with your computer.
* You've more than one router on your home network.
* You've accidentally connected your computer to your neighbor's wireless network.

If you are using a router on the home network, routers have a built in firewall and in this case. The Slingbox uses port 5001 when it communicates with your router, so this port needs to be open for your Slingbox to send video outside of your network.

please feel free to get in touch if u have any question..

Opening router port 5001 of Belkin F5D7230-4

you need to find out your "Default Gateway", which will be the ip address of your router. To do this go to start, then run and type in cmd... you will then get a black window open... in that window type in "ipconfig".... you will then get a host of information about your network... somewhere on this screen towards the top you will see the address of you "Default Gateway" - you need to then type this into your web browser to access your route config pages...
