[Equipment] Clearwire Voyager Hotspot - User Manual

Aside from the Quick Starter Guide
»www.clear.com/cms/files/3413/348···uide.pdf
and the Spec Sheet »www.clear.com/cms/files/3313/348···heet.pdf
, does anyone have a more in-depth User Manual for the Voyager Hotspot?

What do you want to know? I might be able to help.

I would like to know if there is any way to close Port 53.

(see my earlier post:
»Clearwire Voyager Hotspot Leaves Port 53 Open
)

and to set OpenDNS

Port 53 being open is not limited to the Voyager.
I checked my Clear Hub with Wi-Fi and port 53 is open as well.
53 is DNS and pointing nslookup at it doesn't yield any results.
I really don't know why it is open unless it's some sort of back door for Clear???
Pure speculation of course.

Unfortunately, there is no way to close port 53.

However, I would expect this to be fixed in the next maintenance release. (But I don't know when that will be.)

Port 53 is not used by Clear for anything.

Thanks for the answers re Port 53.

Another question: Is there any way to put all the ports on "Stealth".

Most wi-fi routers (Linksys DIR-825, etc.) can do that.

According to www.grc.com, this is much more secure.
