Rcmd Router/Gatewy & Port Forwarding
Nov 15, 2014 3:47 PM
Slingbox M1 newbie
Need to exchange my current router/gateway from a 4 port to a 6 or 8 port
Current model is Verizon DSL-2750 B (4 output ports)
One port in the new 6 or 8 port router/gateway would be dedicated to the M1. Currently I disconnect a port and plug the M1 when I go away (I'm ignoring wireless because of performance)
Verizon doesn't provide 6/8 port router/gateways to consumers
On one occasion gateway had to be rebooted to receive M1 signal
using standard definition (composite?) not HD (update planned)
Can you recommend a 6/8 port consumer router/gateway for the M!? Or what should I look for?
Does port forwarding benefit M1 (TCP vs UHF)?
What router/gateway works best and are easy to port forward (if this is the case)?
And, can I close the cover to my laptop, or minimize the M1, and not disconnect to improve or lower my risk of not connecting later in the day?
