    I've never seen a device with that many open ports, what type of device is this?

    I received a warning from Fing yesterday.  Said there were 162 open ports.  This is the second time getting this.

    Yes sir.  I have a  Netgear 16 port POE switch and a 4 port POE camera controller connected to the web through a Linksys WRT1200AC router.   I also have 2 networks showing.  Thank you for responding.

    I'm going to delete one of the networks.  It may be the root of my problem.

    Seems like the root of your problem is UPnP. I always recommend turning UPnP off unless you absolutely need it on. Very few routers implement UPnP correctly and it can result in opening dozens of ports like this

    When I disable UPnP, my WiFi stops working.  Thank you for responding.  Still open to suggestions.

    I also wanted to say that my security camera application is opening most of those ports,

    The thing about that is your security camera is potentially making your network less secure by opening all those ports.

    That's understandable.  The questions are; Why and What do I need to do to avoid that?  Thank you very much.

    You would need to disable UPnP and manually forward the ports your network needs to function.

    Well, I did not think of that.  How would I be able to tell which ports I need to open?  Thank you.

    Research each device you know opens ports, game systems, cameras, things like that and manually open them with port forwarding. It can be tedious but only needs to be done once fortunately.

    I'm about to throw in the towel.  Over 200 ports open today.  I'm going to disconnect Fingbox and security cameras till i get this worked out.  Any ideas?

    Have you tried shutting off UPnP in your router?

    I noticed something the other day and it looks like certain programs are activated at certain times and at start up. Where do I go to see these kind of rules that have been applied.

    Sorry to bombard you jamzm why does ring show two devices for my wifi. I just have the 1 wireless router. It shows DSL Device and WIFI two different IP addresses. The DSL shows up as an additional device with the last 3 digits of the IP address is different. I just dont get why it shows 2.

    Hi, the only thing I can think of is you may have 2 devices of the same brand of radio. For instance, my wifi Genie garage door unit shows as a ring doorbell device because the chip is from the same manufacturer. But is the unit wired to anything?

    No just the one box. Maybe because it has a 2.4gh and a 5.5 gh??? I'm just guessing. Did you see my other messages?

    I have not seen your other messages. Can the device connect to both 2.4 and 5.0 bands?
