Opening Port 5000 on U-Verse Router (to connect IP Camera )

Hi -

 

1.0        When I signed up for U-verse back in 2008 - I had the Tech Open Port 5000 -   so as to connect my IP camera

& view remotely

 

2.0  Later on U-verse router went ... so they replaced the router

 

3.0  I had to reset all my devices (Laptops , ipad, ipod etc) as this was a NEW router

 

4.0  The IP camera can connect - but the Port 5000 has to be openeed by ISP - and ATT wont help saying

        $49 to Connect Tech so that they will open the port !!

 

         Does anyone know how to open PORT 5000  on U-verse supplier routers ?  Or is it controlled by U-verse technicians?   My camera is a Panasonic BL-131A

 

If the U-verse guys don't help - I am tempted to go back to comcast ($150 rebate - and buy a new camera)

which does not neccessiate opening ports -

What is the manufacturer/model of your new U-verse router?

Can you tell if the camera is actually connecting to the routers wireless?
