    I use D-Link Ethernet Broadband Router EBR-2310.

    I want to have my router block or stealth ports 135-139, but I cannot figure out how to do it. I checked D-link's tech support site, but couldn't find the help I need.

    Can someone give me advice, please, as to HOW to configure my router so as to block ports 135-139?

    Use port forwarding and point Port 135-139 to an IP that you do not use (within the IP pool). For example, when I ran GRC's test it always showed Port 113 as closed. I used port forwarding to stealth it (it is pointed to 192.168.2.50, an IP I do not use).

    In your router's settings page, it'll probably say "Virtual Server." That's where you do port forwarding.

    Check this for additional help: http://www.portforward.com/

    EDIT: Your router should automatically block/stealth those ports. Did you adjust anything in your computer? Do you have an application that use those ports?
