Vodafone sure Signal and Netgear dg834n v1

Hi
I seem to be one of the many who, having received a Sure Signal box, can't get the blxxdy thing to connect.
The power light comes on but the second connection light just blinks at me slowly. 
I have the Plusnet firewall turned off. So I know this is not the problem.  I am having difficulty understanding the port forwarding instructions and relating them to the relevant pages on the Netgear's menu.  I am running slightly out of date firmware on the netgear (v1.08.  v1.15 is the latest I believe) so I may try updating and resetting everything tonight.
But in the meantime can anyone direct me to some very simple to follow instructions on port forwarding on my router
many thanks
Daz

Below is a link to portforwarding for many applications using your router, sadly the voda one isn't listed.

If you have a look at the utorrent one, that is a fairly simple one to follow.
But basically you need the IP address of your voda box, create a service, add it to the firewall rules. that should sort you out Smiley
