How to open Ports to use Majicjack phone

I am 67 years old and do not understand a lot of the computer system setups.  I us a Majicjack phone linked to my computer and I get a lot of static on the phone.  The Majicjack trouble shooting instructions says to open Ports 5060-5070 on my R6250/AC1600 Smart WiFi router, I do not have a clue were to start, if anyone can provide some step-by-step instructions that would be very helpful.  Thanks Dave

Sorry that I have not got back sooner but I have been out of town.  I have followed your instructions which were very good, and I have entered the information into my Majicjack account.  I will see over the next few days how it works on my phone reception.

Thank you very much for your help.  Dave
