Too Many Ports Opened

Postby hazy7687 » Wed Dec 22, 2004 2:07 pm

I recently forwarded 50,000 Ports from my firewall. Now I can't open my Home Portal homepage so i cant close them, my internet is running slow and when i called Bellsouth they tried all sorts of different things and neither of us were able to access the homepage to close the ports. Their only answer was: "buy a new router....from us.... for $150." So before I go and spend all kinds of money on a new router that I dont actually need.

My current router is a 2wire 1000s, and my ISP is Bellsouth. If anyone has any way to reset the default settings or close the ports without being able to access the homeportal page I would really like to know. THanks.

There should be some sort of reset button on the router that you press to reset the settings. It's usually a small button on the back that you press in w/ a pen.
