    I do concentrate on iChat and sometime iSight.

    iChat is spread across 4 forums although iChat 2 and the one in the Leopard area for iChat 4 are almost dead.

    I get by with only about 3 hours a day here

    Seems this is a new Netgear as i have never seen it before.

    I always get the "Router type: port restricted" and has never stop me A/V'ing.

    On the setup page/router status whats the firmware version.

    Yes, I checked, just in case there was something more recent.
    Very odd. Wouldn't work (Audio or video) with port forwarding to a static LAN IP or the default way just using uPNP.

    Looking at the netgear site for the 1000 i wonder if this has anything to do with it.

    Hi,

     

    It has been so Long that I had lost the subscription to this thread  (They Automatically die after period)

     

    I have nothing new (from other threads).

     

    Mostly it seems this is one device from the Netgear stable that has something that iChat does not like.

    I am having the issue with the Connection Doctor saying, "Router type: Port Restricted". My router is a Linksys E4200 running DD-WRT (Build 16785). I'm on Mountain Lion, so I'm actually using Messages.

     

    Just thought, I'd keep the thread going, and add more up-to-date key words.

    hi.

     

    Also see here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_address_translation#One-to-many_NATs

    I have linked to a spot within the article that includes diagrams.

     

    There are four main methods  and I am sure many manufacturers actually use methods that are not really in one group or another.

     

    As Defcom has said in this tread he gets this messages with the Netgears he has had.

     

    I get it with a Sky Branded Sagem Fast2504
