  • To setup port forwarding on this router your computer needs to have a static ip address.
    Try our free PF Setup Static IP Address Program which will setup a static ip address for you.

    Or you can take alook at our Static IP Address guide to setup a static ip address. When you are finished setting up a static ip address, please come back to this page and enter the ip address you setup in the Static IP Address box below.

    Do not skip this step!

    WRT54G Open a web browser like Internet Explorer or Firefox. Enter the internal IP address of your router in the address bar of your browser. If you do not know your routers internal IP address please read our How To Find Your Routers IP Address guide.

    In the picture above the address bar has in it. Just replace all of that with the internal IP address of your router. By default the IP address should be set to
    WRT54G You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now. By default the username is blank, and the password is admin. Click the Ok button to log in to your router.

    Please visit our Default Router Passwords page if the username and password shown above did not work for you.
    WRT54G Click the Security link near the top of the page.
    WRT54G Remove the checkmark from the Block Anonymous Internet Requests checkbox.
    Click the Save Settings button near the bottom of the page.
    Click the Applications & Gaming link near the top of the page.
    You should now see a new menu. In this new menu, click Port Range Forward.
    WRT54G Enter the name of the program into the Application box. It doesn't really matter what you put into this box, but something that will remind you why these ports are being forwarded would be a good idea.
    If you are forwarding a single port, enter that port number into the Start and the End boxes. If you are forwarding a range of ports, enter the lowest number of that range into the Start box. Then enter the highest number of that range into the End box.
    Use the Protocol drop down box to select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding.
    Enter the ip address to forward these ports to into the IP Address box. If you are forwarding ports so you can run a program on your computer, you should enter your computer's ip address into that box.
    Put a checkmark in the Enable checkbox.
    When you're finished, click Save Settings near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.

    And that's it! You're done!
