Hello, im trying to port forward utorrent to my router which is a netgear B90755025

I put in the info as needed, but when I get to box to input my LAN Port, I don't know what to put in there, because whenever I put something in that box, I get a message, after I click create that says Non-numeric input in Port field!. 

what do I put in that field.

mis-read your post that it is a non numeric field. See Wand3r3r response below. I believe he is on the right path.

Lots of good tutorials over at Portforward.com on how to port forward.

 

The message you are getting is asking for lan port number not the ip address the forward is going to.  You would want to go look at how your lan ports are listed on this router.  Could be something like eth0 or eth1  though the message is clear in saying non numeric.

 

Model of netgear router you have?

You actually have a AT&T Westell Versalink B90-755025-15 (Netgear now Owns Westell). HERE is the manual. Page 60 List port forwarding instructions. In your case you using port 6222 for incomming connections you want to enter 6222 in the start, End and Lan port.
