Connecting Verizon Samsung 4G LTE Network Extender

Hello. I'm attempting to connect a Verizon Samsung 4G LTE Network Extender. I'm stuck on connecting to the Verizon Network, and Verizon is telling me that the NighthawkX6 R7850 needs to have ports opened up. Here is the exact wording from Verizon: 


The 4G LTE Network Extender uses standard ports to make a connection through the internet. It shouldn't require any special port configuration. In those rare instances where the 4G LTE Network Extender is unable to connect to the Verizon Wireless network, you may need to open ports 50, 500, 4500, 53 and 52428. Contact your network administrator or the manufacturer of your switch, router and/or firewall for detailed instructions on how to open ports on your LAN equipment.


Can anybody help me with how to open those ports up?
