    Hi, I have a netgear 824M router with build in adsl modem and 4 ports.

    Surfing was smooth and everything was fine but not the video conferencing. It has video but no audio. I understand from netgear that port forwarding is needed but got lost in the setting up.

    What is the lowest and highest port number used by the service ??

    The program I am using is MSN messager.

    Thanks

    Can you configure your router to forward a range of ports?

    If so, couldn't you just forward 6891-6901 to your computer.
