Hi all,

What range of ports is open by default on a home router... I read an article on this but I forgot the article and don't remember the ranger.

Thx all,

As far as I know, by default all ports are closed on a SOHO Router and if you want one (or more) open, you have to actually open it (them) manually.

Just FYI........having any ports open by default on a router kind of defeats the purpose of the builtin firewall inside the SOHO Router.

If you have a new router and you'd like to test, google "shields up" and go to their website and have it run a port scan on you.

Hi Curt,

Now when you say all ports are closed, I'm assuming you mean for incoming traffic?

That would be correct, for incoming traffic.
