I am having a problem with my conexant router, after currently reading this article, I checked my ports and realised that port 23 and 80 were open , so i took the advice of the article and disabled all those options in the misc settings in my router. I ran the port scan again but port 80 was still open, so I checked again in my misc config in my router, and although everything was disable there was a option saying “HTTP server port” with the value “80” in it, so I thought I’ll get rid of that and deleted so there was no value… Rebooted my modem, port scan said it was closed, so I was quite pleased with myself, until I couldn’t get into my router settings :S but could access internet fine :a , in the end I had to poke the little reset button on my modem to get back into the router settings. I altered that value again, and hey presto, i had to reset my modem again!
How can I close this damn port but make it also let me access my router settings??? Any networking people out there, please help me
Thanks, I know someone will help fix it!!
