First, you need to get into the user interface for the router.  To do that, just open your web browser, type in 198.168.1.1 & hit enter.  A login prompt will pop up if you're able to access the router.

If you've never done this before, the username is blank & the password is admin

What, exactly do you want to do with the NAT firewall?

To enable/disable NAT: click on setup, then click on advanced routing.

To filter Internet NAT redirection: click on security, then click on filters.

You can find this information in the User guide provided by LinkSys at:

Select your version number, then click on User Guide when it comes up.  User guides & Interfaces for the BEFSR41 are almost identical on every version.

    to elaborate and avoid confusion on the login information, I meant that you leave the username blank & type admin for the password

Hello. I am trying to get my NAT open with my linksys BEFSR41 V4.3


You are trying to open the NAT on the router.

to 1365. Disable the UPnP on the router.
You will also need to trigger some ports on the router.
For this you will need to open the router set up page.
