Port Forwarding on a Netgear router

It is important to setup a static ip address in the device that you are forwarding a port to. This ensures that your ports will remain open even after your device reboots.

To Reserve a Static IP Address:
  • Launch a web browser from a computer or mobile device that is connected to your router's network.
  • Enter A login window displays.
  • Enter the router user name and password. The user name is admin. The default password is password. The user name and password are case-sensitive. The BASIC Home page displays.
  • Select ADVANCED > Setup > LAN Setup. The LAN page displays.
  • In the Address Reservation section, click the Add button. The page adjusts.
  • In the IP Address field, type the IP address to assign to the computer or server. Choose an IP address from the router's LAN subnet, such as 192.168.1.x.
  • Type the MAC address of the computer or server. If the computer is already on your network, you can copy its MAC address from the Attached Devices page and paste it here.
  • Click the Apply button. The reserved address is entered into the table.

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 username admin and password is password (unless you have changed this password)

Step 2 - Find the Port Forwarding Section
Now it is time to find the port forwarding section of the menu. We need to start on the Basic Home page:

Click the Advanced tab at the top of the page.

Next, click the option of Advanced Setup in the left sidebar.
Then, under that click the option of Port Forwarding/Port Triggering.

You are now on a page like the one seen above.
