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.

Port 80 is the web port. Whenever you look at a web page you are going to port 80 on the server. If you block port 80 then you won't see web pages. I am assuming it's outgoing traffic to web servers you wish to block. A standard router will have incoming port 80 blocked by default. You would OPEN port 80 if you had a web server at home.

My Motorola router SBG6580 is hacked . how do I block the hacker ?

In the router table you should be able to see the offender.. from there you can block them but they may just go to another computer to log on.... But this takes experience.
Most important change your password.. words (wifi) too.. use wifi encryption .. and make sure that remote login on the modem is off.
This is the first level of defense It could be more serious..

Nvg510 no wireless

Hi, You can not use a router to connect a computer to another wireless router. You need to purchase a wireless adapter if you want to connect a computer wirelessly to the network. There seems no other way of doing this.

I want to make sure my wireless signal is secure. How do I do this?

I assume that you have a wireless router that is connected to your Motorola cable-modem.

Connect to the web-server "inside" the router, and configure the wireless network:
* set an SSID -- the "name" for your network
* set an encryption-level -- use 'WPA' or 'WPA2'
* set a password for your network

Now, your wireless communications between your computer and your router will be encrypted, i.e., "secure".

Also, having a password keeps other computers out, if their owners do not know the password.

How to set up wep password for my Motorola sb50101u wireless router

The WEP encryption key is configured in the wireless settings in the router. If your wireless router can support WPA and WPA2 then I suggest you use this because it is a much stronger encryption.
To secure your wireless network and view/configure or change the encryption key, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

My new mac mini wants a password to connect to my wireless network (Motorola SBG900)


The SSID (network name) and password should be on the wireless router itself, usually underneath the unit.

If its not there, the password will be with documentation you got with the wireless router.
