I've got this netgear router, which basically blocks everything...
I know how to enable the port to allow me to play Guild Wars, but I'm curious about how prudent it would be to actually do so.
I've asked the people at netgear router, and they basically said open at your own risk.

Can you guys tell me how secure this port actually is?

Hey nthn75075,

What port number are we talking about. (please don't post the port number here)
But you may want to google that port number to see if there are any know THREATS that are associated with that port.

Also you would want to know whether the software makes a connection as a TCP or UDP port.

As far as how secure the router is, well, it is only as secure as it is configured to be. If you open a port on a router, that port isn't secure at all. The rest of the router might be bulletproof, but anything can get through that open port. That's like asking how secure an open door is........ :tazz:

But hey you're asking questions...so... :)
