What is the Base Host Port

My router isn't allowing me to connect to WOW, so I want to configure it for port forwarding. I have located information on the ports I need to configure, but my router is also asking for a "base host port" for each entry. I don't know what to enter in the field, and I need to get some sleep:(
Here's a funny story. The guy who installed my internet said ,"You don't need to use that router you bought, we provide one."
The model 7550 he left me with has no pre-configuration setting for WoW. It has a netgear sticker on the back, but doesn't exist when I do a model search on their website. No one has ever heard of this router, and this router has never heard of WOW! Funny right?

If we can get the correct model number, I can most likely get you some steps for the portforwarding. Check the bottom of the router. There is usually a sticker that will have the model number is small letters.

The front of the modem/router is labeled "Model 7550".

I have learned that this product was originally designed as the Westell VersaLink 7500. The Westell site directs users to contact the Netgear site only to find "Requested product content not available."

Your router is actually a modem/router combo. It looks like it should be similar to the Versalink 327W.

Here's a link with some portforwarding information for the Versalink 327W: http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Westell/Versalink-327W/World_of_WarCraft_Downloader.htm

If that doesn't help, your ISP should be able to assist with portforwarding since they provided the modem/router.

Here's a link with our port information in case you need to contact the ISP: https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/firewall-configuration-for-blizzard-games#2
