Setting up a port forward on a Linksys router is usually very easy. Linksys router's have a consistent and easy to use interface that makes setting up a port forward straight forward.

Step 1 - Login to your router
Open up your web browser and type in the default gateway ip address for your router
This should take you to your login screen. Enter your routers password here.


Step 2 - Find the Port Forwarding Section

  1. Find the Security tab located near the left-bottom of the screen and click it.
  2. Click the Apps and Gaming tab at the top of the screen.
  3. Click on the Port Range Forwarding link at the middle of the screen.
  4. Find the Add a new Port Range Forwarding button at the left of the screen and click on it.
