Question about Arris SB5100 SURFboard DOCSIS 2.0 Cable Modem (50120900100)
I play game called World of Warcraft and according to their tech support, they say they have had many past occurences to where WoW and SB100 series have issues to where one gets disconected often. I was wondering if there is a solution to this or some kind of driver I could install to help the problem before going to the extreme of buying a different modem.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

Sounds like you need to do some port forwarding.
World of Warcraft communicates on port 3724 with the TCP protocol. The patching process requires port 3724, 6112, and 6881-6999. Once again to download the patches for World of Warcraft you should forward the following ports.
3724 TCP6112 TCP6881-6999 TCP
If you can not forward ranges of ports and are only planning on having one computer playing WoW, just forward ports 3724 TCP and 6112 TCP. The 6881-6999 port range is mainly used where multiple computers on a network may be trying to play WoW at the same time.
Ventrilo: From their web site: Click on the "Port number" input box and enter the servers port number. The program will automatically display the default port number of 3784 but you can change this to what ever the server needs it to be.
So forward 3784 or the port number you chose.

Hope that helps!
