I have a Dell router, it is a Wireless 2350. I would like to set up a port forwarding for my IP web cam but all possible port forwardings are taken. My router can only handle ten of them.
The thing is that I have not set up any of them my self, I'm 110% sure of that. Seven of them seems to be related to my IP-phone (which I have put in an DMZ so I don't think that it would need any other port forwarding?) and three of them is related to Skype. None of these is possible to delete. When i try to delete any one of them the web gui interface reloads but the port forwarding is still there.

Is it possible for my IP-phone box and Skype to automaticly configure my router in this way?

Can I get around it and delete the forwardings (or just one of them) in some way?

Sorry about my bad english, I'm swedish...

Anyone?
Can it be some kind of default values from Dell?
Is there anyone with a Dell Wireless 2350 router with firmware version 1.46.10 who can check if this is the same at your router?

Some things you can try here.

  1. For wireless connections, change the channel on the router, I like channels 1, 6, and 11 in the US.
  2. Update the firmware to the latest version available on the manufacturer's site.
  3. Reset the router to factory defaults and reconfigure.

Many times these measures will resolve a lot of intermittent issues.
