Vonage Hi, Will port forwarding solve my problem. When i first installed vonage

Will port forwarding solve my problem.
When i first installed Vonage (Motorola Vt2142 attached to Comcast cable modem SB5120) everyhting worked fine apart from the occasional drop in audio from my end. I would put this down to some bandwidth tweaking that i should have done. Suddenly, people that i called were not able to hear me at all anf the Phone 1 line was flashing green on my adapter no matter how many times i did a complete restart, even if i had not yet connected my phone or even had my phone powered up before connecting it.
I tried and got the following error:

"Your computer couldn't call our location on the standard SIP port (5060). Generally, this failure is caused by a firewall blocking our calls. We are going to re-run the test over a commonly available port (6000) to diagnose the problem."

I tried Vonage tech support and they suggested that i contact Comcast and ask them if any ports had been blocked from the following list:

SIP ports 5060 through 5061 using UDP protocol
NTP port 123 using UDP protocol
TFTP port 69 using UDP protocol
DNS port 53 using UDP protocol
RTP ports 10,000 through 20,000 using UDP protocol

I contacted Comcast and was given the most awful runaround of my life being passed from one tech to the next for such pathetic excuses as not being able to open a simple tracert screenshot attachment therefore ignoring all the other straightforward questions in my e-mail. When i responded to that they tried to discourage me by saying i needed to phone them instead. Of course, i replied and refreshed their memory that the problem was making my ability to reach other people by telephone impossible then finally i was given the list of current ports blocked but was told that other ports could be blocked without notice. Here they are:


Ok, anybody out there, please tell me there is a solution to this, do i need port forwarding so i can get around these scumbags or is there something really simple going on that i can't see. Any help would be appreciated. I also gave Vonage tech support an update on what Comcast told me and have yet to reeive a reply.

The tracert test i tried to tell Comcast about consistently gave a "request timed out" error at hop 6. Hops 3-5 were all addresses. The Vonage bandwidth test gave me a download speed of 21.7Mbps and an upload speed of 370 kbps.
I am hoping all of this is incredibly simple.
