With this particular router you will need to treat the port range field as the port field. You will just have to forward single ports at a time. Which will be fine. In case you need more reference see the link below.

Hope this helps!

Trying to port forward a web port, media port, and phone port to an ip address for security camersa

1. Select Port Forwarding/Port Triggering under Advanced in the main menu.

2. From the Service Name list, select the service or game that you will host on your network. If the service does not appear in the list, see the following section, "Adding a Custom Service."
3. In the corresponding Server IP Address fields, enter the last digit of the IP address of your

local computer that will provide this service.
4. To the right of Server IP Address, click Add. The service appears in the list in the screen
To define a service, game, or application that does not appear in the Service Name list, you must first determine which port number or range of numbers is used by the application. You can usually determine this information by contacting the publisher of the application or user groups or newsgroups. When you have the port number information, follow these steps:

Adding a Custom Service.
1. Select Port Forwarding/Port Triggering under Advanced in the main menu.
2. Click Add Service (see Figure 5-1 on page 5-7).The Ports-Custom Services screen displays.
3. In the Service Name field, enter a descriptive name.
4. In the Service Type field, select the protocol. If you are unsure, select TCP/UDP.
5. In the Starting Port field, enter the beginning port number.
• If the application uses only a single port, enter the same port number in the Ending Port
• If the application uses a range of ports, enter the ending port number of the range in the
Ending Port field.
6. In the Server IP Address field, enter the IP address of your local computer that will provide
this service.
7. Click Apply.
See the rest of the manual here.

Want to block UPD ports on router

Hi Try the below steps:

1. Log into the configuration page of your Linksys using a web browser by entering in the URL bar. Enter "admin" as both the username and the password. These are the default settings; if any of the settings have been changed, then enter the updated information.
2. Select "Port Range Forwarding" from under the "Applications & Gaming" tab on from the configuration page. Enter the name of the application in the "Application" field, and the starting and ending port numbers in the appropriate fields, as many applications use a range of consecutive numbers for the port number. If your application uses only one port number then input the same number in both the "Start" and the "End" fields.
3.Click on the "Save" button at the bottom of the window to save any changes you have made. Make sure your changes have taken effect by testing an application.

Hope this helps.

Opening a port on a Cellpipe 7130 router

pretty much the same as any other router
login => advanced setup => port range forwarding
field one (name)
field two (port to open)
field three (port to open)
field four (probably TCP/IP, but its 50/50 guess)
field five (local ip to route traffic using that port to)
and last drop down and select "enable"

NetGear WGR826V has no clear port forwarding section in the setup, the mamnual is as clear as brick as to how do I forward a port on this brain dead router?

Forwarding Port – If you select 'Same as Incoming port' then all incoming traffic on specified Service is forwarded to LAN server without modifying Destination Port. – If you select 'Forward to another port range' then all incoming traffic received on the Service port (or range of ports) is forwarded to this port or range of ports of the LAN Server. – This field is disabled if action selected is "Block Always". – If you want to forward the traffic to a single port then enter port value in start port and leave finish port empty. – If you want to forward the traffic to range of ports then enter non zero value in finish port and make sure that service record attached to this rule has range of ports and range is equal to that of forwarding ports. – For example if you select Service as HTTP (TCP/80), LAN Server IP address as and Forwarding port as 8080 then all traffic coming from internet on – TCP/80 (HTTP) to this Router is redirected to TCP/8080 port of • WAN Users: These settings determine which packets are covered by the firewall rule, based on their source (WAN) IP address. Select the desired option: – Any All IP addresses are covered by this firewall rule. – Address range If this option is selected, you must enter the "Start" and "Finish" fields. – Single address Enter the required address in the "Start" fields. • Log: This determines whether packets covered by this firewall rule are logged. Select the desired action. – Never - never log traffic considered by this firewall rule, whether it matches or not. – Match - Log traffic only it matches this firewall rule. (The action is determined by this firewall rule.)
Ok well this is out of the manual, to me it seems straight forwards, but it is a brick too though, there is an example to help you, basically you tell it the Address of the PC, (Right click on NIC and get address) that you want ports to go to.. then ALLOW it, UN-disable actually.. in the tables.

How to set port forwarding?

Open a web browser like internet explorer or Netscape. Enter the ip address of your router in the address bar of your browser. By default the IP address should be set to

You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now. By default both the username and password are blank. Click the Ok button to log in to your router.

Click the Firewall button near the top of the page. Use the Protocol drop down box to select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding. If you are forwarding a single port, enter that port number into the LAN port range, Left WAN port range and the Right WAN port range boxes. If you are forwarding a range of ports, enter the lowest number of that range into the LAN port range, Left WAN port range box. Then enter the highest number of that range into the Right WAN port range box. Enter the IP address to forward these ports to into the LAN 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. When you are finished, click the Add button.

When you're finished, click Save near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.

And that's it! You're done! Hope this helps.

Open port on router for peer to peer downloading

The port you need to open depends on the specific application you're using.

Go to the website of the application you're using and search their support area for port settings or firewall configuration settings.

Some applications have a user forum where you can find the answer as to what ports are required to be open.

Here's an example of the ports that would need to be open for Limewire: (this does not mean these are the ports that need to be open in your case)

In LW tools > options > advanced > firewall config. Change LW's listening port to 65000 (or try any ports in the range of 49152 - 65535) > apply > ok. If you have port forwarding set up for a modem/router, you'll need to change the port forwarded to match LW's new listening port. If you have a specific port number allowed thru a software firewall, make sure that you allow LW's new port number.

Port forwarding

hi there,
this is a basic step used to forward ports to your system.
Port Forwarding Steps for Routers 1. Log into your router. Usually the URL is, and enter the username , and the password . If you have never set a password, the password (which you should change) is admin. Consult the manual if you have never set up your router before or need to reset the password. 2. Click on the "Applications & Gaming" tab or Under Advanced, click Port Forwarding.
3. Click on the "Port Range Forward" tab .
4. In the "application" field, type "web" (if you are forwarding wb traffic on port 80) or "torrent" (if you are forwarding bittorrent traffic on port 40156). This is just a "nickname" so that you can recognize what you were trying to do when you come back to it.
5. In the "Start" field, enter: 80
6. In the "End" field, also enter: 80
7. Set "Protocol" to TCP. Web and Bittorrent servers use only TCP, so there's no reason fo forward UDP traffic too and create an unnecessary security risk.
8. In the "IP Address" field, enter: or your system IP address.
9. Click "Save Settings." Forwarding should begin immediately.
