BOINC used to work fine until I bought a new router. I reinstalled BOINC and tried to attach seti. BOINC tells me that it can't access the internet. My browser works fine as does my email. I turned off firewall in the router, but it still can't connect. I read multiple places that i have to enable port 80 and 443. I tried doing this in the router config, but don't really know what I'm doing. There's nothing out there that seems to tell me how and I don't feel like reading 1000 pages to find out. Is there some simple way to make this work? Why does it have to be so difficult?

Here are my messages:
