      Port mapping - I think I need a non-sky modem/router?

      I'm trying to connect a video intercom to my network - the instructions say

      "
      The external port can be anything greater than 7000, but smaller than 65534.


      • Internal port is locked to 80 so your rule must accommodate for that"

      My understanding is i need to map external port (say) 7000 to internal port 80 but there is no way of doing that with the stock Sky ER115 router.

      The "best router to replace sky router" thread has loads of detailed discussions but seemingly not a simple list of routers that work and are easy to set up. I'm not bothered about wireless as my house need multiple access points for good coverage so I need to continue to use my current Cisco units.

      TP Link VR600 looks like it's OK and sounds as if it's very easy to set up. Does that mean any of the models on this page will work?

      They all have wifi- it's a long while since i've bought a modem/router - i'm guessing there's no point/saving trying to find something that doesn't have the wifi built in?

      hi. if you want to use a third party router I suggest a 2 box approach. seperate vdsl modem and a router which must support option 61 on the wan port. Examples of this are Netgear routers running ddwrt and you can also use Asus routers either stock with telnet entered commands or you can load merlin on to the asus and use the gui to configure which is easier to do.

      whichever if your chosen router does not support option 61 so you can enter the correct authentication details sky servers need it's not going to work. I use Opnsense which is free software based router/firewall and also use port mappings inbound with no problem.

      You can pick up cheap vdsl modem only devices on eBay etc.

      any questions just ask.
