Is it just me or is there no port forwarding option on the VS2 modem? Can’t find it anywhere. And if it does support port forwarding it’s definitely an usual configuration.

Update. Called tech support. They don’t know what port forwarding is!!! They said a tier 3 tech will call me back.

Look under Applications and Gaming under Router settings, if it's like the SB2+ port forwarding is there.

Thanks Bev!! It’s a pop up menu under router settings. Wasn’t easy to find!

Don't know the model numbers but they're talking about the bottom 2 having built-in router; the top one has no built-in router, only a modem status, but you can add your own router:

@Nathan Hart, did you ever get this to work.  I found the settings page on my own (once I was able to make out the password...fine print is really fin print!)  However, I am not sure that I am setting the ports up correctly.  I think I have them entered in correctly, but I still am unable to access the internet through my application.

What ports are you trying to use?

What ports does the device suggest?

What is your device that needs an open port?

No longer matters.  I had to rebuild my system, and the problem appears to have been resolved.

im actually in the process of setting up my ports for a few games, im just unsure of how to do it on the router, I know the ports i need open for the games but I dont know how i should input the data, in the sense that I dont know if I need to go one by one (Start Port 80 to 80 End Port, 90-90...) or if I can just do it all in one go per game(Start Port 5795 to 5847 End Port), Any help?

Simply set the sport range in the Port Range Forwarding and, Port Range triggering sections. You can do it all in one go per application. Each application (game) will need to be set individually but, the port range can be all in one go for each one.
