Question about Routers
My internet provider is verizon and i need to configure my router for audio/video streaming i would like to use windows media player so default port for windows media player is 1755...someone can help me how to do it
my email address: email@example.com
thx so much
Enter the IP address of the router into the adress bar of your internet browser, be default the yours is set to, should be 192.168.1.1
Enter the password when prompted , the default password is Username = admin Password = admin the click on Ok
now when you are logged in press the "configuration" button at the top of the page and on the next screen click the purple button saying "define cusomt service"
when prompted check the radio button saying "Port Forwarding Ranges of Ports" then click the next button
on the next page name your service:
Service Name: Media Player
Golbal Port Range: 1775-1775
Base Host Port: 1775
Protocol TCP and UDP
** Enter the setting twice with one using the Protocol TCP and the other UDP you will have to name the service name on your second one differently (the service name doesnt matter it just identifies what it is, what is important is the port range and the protocols)
now click next and close
from the service Name drop down box, select the ports you just created and then click Enable to enable the forwarded ports.
