unable to open ports 587 or 465 on netgear CG3000DCR

I'm unable to open certain ports on the netgear router. I was able to open ports 443 but cannot open ports 587 or 465. This is my second comcast netgear gateway the first one was not allowing me to open any ports. Is this an issue withh comcast router or am I missing a step. Also how can I make the gateway bridge mod so that I can use my own routers firewall instead of comcast. Any help is appreciated, 

 

 

Thank you,

Welcome htdj03.  The Comcast gateway are normally shipped with all ports available. Also the gateway can be placed in bridge mode.  One of our other members has a similar request, please take a look a the recommendation in the post and let us know you preference.
