I do not have a router but a modem, or maybe I should call it a modem with an inbuilt router (SOMANetworks). Following your instructions, after finding my default gateway (router IP) and I go to Internet Explorer (IE) to type in my xxx.xxx.x.x, I get this message on the screen: "SOMAportal is not enabled on this system." And if I'm to use your login screen from your software, how do I know what username and password to use to get into the system? Does this mean I can not do port forwarding or I am not allowed to do port forwarding? Does this also mean that even if I decide to purchase a real router (firmware) I will not be able to do port forwarding or port forwarding will not work for me no matter the workaround if any? Does this mean there is no solution to this? Please I need your candid contribution because I really like the speed of my internet connection from my ISP but the con is that I cannot use/enjoy my VOIP and even torrents the way I ought to be doing, thus making it almost useless.
This is a serious issue which I do not know how to solve and would highly appreciate your advice, help, and/or assistance. Almost all ports are not reachable. This is affecting me because I cannot use my VOIP service without having audio or video, or some other silly issues/problems.
Please someone help me.
Thanks in anticipation of any swift response.
