      Talking got a netgear router - need advice on allowing certain ports

      as the title says - before i used sky to access the net for all types of things, i had no problems... now however it appears i get problems when transfering files thru certain ports - my question :-


      when ive entered the ip address to access the netgear router - where in the menus can i adjust the settings to allow access to certain ports on my pc?

      and if possible can you please be as specific as possible? i would appreciate any help - and im sure someone here knows the answer -

      I use to use trend micros firewall - that was a software firewall that required me to enter the location of the software i would allow access on all ports on ie udp and tcp in out etc.... please help, im desperado.

      thanks in advance.

      There is a good chance you would get more help if you explained exactly what you are doing. Are you uploading files to a site on the internet or is it a P2P/torrent problem? There is also a Tutorial on Portforwarding on this forum, which may be helpful.

      ok - yes it is p2p the tool im using is edonkey, im getting a low id now everytime i use a server to source content , i have plenty of sources to get the items im after but obviously i need to allow certain ports.

      My ip will i beleive change everytime i use the router since the pc im using is not on all the time. without seeming sarcastic, is this enought information? i can give you more if you need it??

      thanks in advance.
