The best page for portforwarding can be found here.
It mainly depends on the software and the ports used, so it might differ from application to application. has excellent user guides.

    Well really gave it to me...

    Flagging my solution as "Inappropriate" will only bring my rating down, not my intention to help people who visit this site. All of the solutions are written by people who are willing to put some effort and time into helping others to fix their problems before they take their stuff to a technician.

    So if you call my suggested site a "con", you obviously have no idea what you're talking about. This isite contains valuable information for someone who wants to setup port forwarding on a router or firewall.

    And - yes - please warn other people to stay away from this site. All 12 million of them.

    If you would have been a little bit more polite, I am sure that someone (maybe not me) would have tried to help you.

    So then, have a good life, pay the "techi" whatever he asks for and let the rest of us help each other.

I have a Magic jack internet phone well my router firewall seems to be blocking it how can i exclude it from the firewall in my router?

MagicJack uses port 5060 & 5070 UDP. so go into your router and select port forwarding or applications something along those lines and insert the correct ports into the configuration. it should be pretty self explanatory. i'm not familiar with this particular model of router. if you need instructions they can be found here:
if however your ISP is blocking the use of magic jack there isn't alot you can do about it

Make sure your firewall program on your computer is blocking. Some of them have to allow the new network in.

Laptop sees the wireless network and connects, but then indicates that there is little or no connectivity. Help

this mostly happens when the router has been configured to block certain devices. take a look at the wifi config, look for IP-filtering or MAC filtering. you should see tables containing letters and numbers. make sure this table is empty

Unable to setup wireless print server with wireless router

The issue was the wireless print server not properly connecting to my home network and thus being unable to see my modem/network. This was because my linksys wireless print server generates its wep key with a different algorithm than the Motorola surfboard SBG900, this also explains why when I was using my old linksys wireless g router, things worked without any issue (same wep key algorithm). Once I figured out how to manually configure the print servers wireless settings and manually enter the wep security settings I was able to connect to my network and the configuration found the print server and I was able to finish setup.
