To open TCP ports use these steps below:::

To create an application profile for 4.x and higher:

  1. Open a Web browser and access the gateway user interface by entering
  2. Click the Firewall tab -> Firewall Settings link -> Edit Firewall Settings page.
  3. Click Add a new user-defined application in the Application panel to open the Edit Application page.
  4. Enter an application profile name in the Application Name field. It is recommended that you use the name of the application (for example, GEars of War).
  5. Create your application definition in the Definition panel. A definition consists of a series of protocol-specific ports that are to be allowed through the firewall. You can find this information in the documentation provided by your the company that produces the application.
  6. Select the TCP or UDP button in the Protocol field. If the application you are adding requires both protocols, you must create a separate definition for each.
  7. Enter the port or port range the application uses in the Port (or Range) field. For example, some applications require only one port to be opened (such as TCP port 500); others require that all TCP ports from 600 to 1000 be opened.
  8. Optionally, enter a timeout value in the Protocol Timeout (seconds) field for the amount of time that can pass before the application “times out.” The default values are 86,400 seconds for the TCP protocol, 600 seconds for the UDP protocol.
  9. Enter a value in the Map to Host Port field that maps the port range you established in the above step to the local computer. For example, if you set the value to 4000 and the range being opened is 100 to 108, the forwarded data to the first value in the range will be sent to 4000. Subsequent ports will be mapped accordingly; 101 will be sent to 4001, 102 will be sent to 4002, and so forth.
  10. Select the application type from the Application Type drop-down list. If you do not know the application type, select None (Default).
  11. Click Add Definition to the profile definition list.
  12. Click Done.
  13. Repeat steps 1 through 12 for each port or range of ports required for the application profile.

When i try to use the internet on my stuff it does not work

If all of your stuff has been working fine until now, try unplugging the router for a few mintues and then plugging it back in. Then restart each of your devices. If you've already done all of this, then it is possible your router has died.

My router doesnt seem to be Broadcasting the wireless connecition!

it may be that the router is not assigning ip addreses properly, and is duplicating the ip address on all pc's. or you have done the windows diagnose and repair or detect problems. Go to the properties of each wireless card in control panel>network connections and on the TCP/IP line click propertes again and ensure obtain ip address automatically is checked. Also go into the routers settings and ensure DHCP is enabled to give all pc's an automatic ip address. Restart all pc's and your router (not Reset) and you should get renewed ip addresses and be able to connect.

Problem connecting to the net

You router may be set to be DHCP enabled so that it allocates the ip addresses automatically to each pc, so check that the pc's network card with connection problems is set in the properties on the TCP/IP line is set to obtain an ip address automatically. You can also try, Start>run then type ipconfig /flushdns to clear the pc ip address and dns. and restart pc. Lastly if you pc is both network cabled and wireless, ensure one or the other is dissabled as this can confuse the ip adress alocation.
