"Port Range" for Uverse router and Direct TV Genie reciever
I'm trying to configure my Uverse router so I can connect my Direct TV DVR/receiver to my router. Does anyone know the "port range" that should be entered when configuring the Uverse router for my Direct TV Genie DVR/receiver? Thanks

I apologize about any issues you are having with your Direct TV Genie Reciever and U-verse router, but I will be glad to help. I did some research and I am thinking you are trying to gain access to the DirecTV GenieGo App. If so, you will have to open ports 8082-8083. Here is a great site I found that goes over how to do it on an NVG510.
I copied and pasted the information from the site below just in case anyone is having issues with accessing the site.
