    -- My wireless seems slow, and the log file has lots of messages like this,
    with the port numbers constantly changing, and everything else the same:

    2008/03/20 17:40:03 DeletePortMapping: ExternalPort:6389, TCP
    2008/03/20 17:40:04 DeletePortMapping: ExternalPort:54266, UDP
    2008/03/20 17:40:17 AddPortMapping: ExternalPort:28925, UDP,
    InternalPort:16381, InternalClient:192.168.2.37
    2008/03/20 17:40:17 AddPortMapping: ExternalPort:25059, TCP,
    InternalPort:8684, InternalClient:192.168.2.37

    Does anyone know what all this means?

    The log file is NOT "Windows Messenger" (Barb Bowman IDIOT!) The log file
    you are viewing is the file from your MN-700 Router! It post all activity
    entries to a special file to help Networking Pros determine issues with the
    Router (if any)... Such as ~> Connectivity with attached devices...ie. Cable
    Modem, Wireless units (computers and devices) connected, Cable-Connected
    units (connected via a cable to your router), Time-out Hosting of Generated
    Address for the connected units, etc. It's a bit technical to explain, but
    the router must track all of those events to process the signals from the
    internet or other units connected to your network hub device that links them
    (Which IS of course "The MN-700 Router").

    those ports are added dynamically by applications like Windows
    Messenger. Applications map ports in this manner.
