I have a new USB device (MagicJack) that the telephone hooks into to make calls using the internet. The computer I am using it on is behind my router. It's not connecting to the internet. The company said that I need to open ports on the router: UDP 5061, TCP 80, and TCP 443. I'm not sure where these settings would go in the router, or how to do this in a particular section. The terms they give, and the terms in the router don't seem to match. How do I open ports on a WRT54G router? Thanks.
First thing you have to make sure is that, you have to assign a static ip address on computer like 192.168.1.10, with subnet mask of 255.255.255.0, and gateway 192.168.1.1, which you will be using for that phone. Open setup page of router by typing http://192.168.1.1 in browser’s address bar, and typing password as "admin" and no user name. Go to security tab, and disable block anonymous internet requests. Go to applications and gaming tab. Now Forward the ports you have to this static ip address, which you assign to your computer.
Thanks. I have some of this done, but not the "disable block anonymous internet requests". I still have to check on that. As of Sunday I was still having trouble getting the device to connect to the Internet. I also set Windows Firewall to allow the required ports to be used. I talked to MagicJack's chat person and she said I have to uninstall some programs (Yahoo Jukebox, Musicmatch, and/or Nero), reboot, then connect the MagicJack device again. I'll let you all know how this all works out. Thanks again. CU
