If you don't know what Port Forwarding is yet, you might want to start by reading our What is Port Forwarding guide.

To setup port forwarding on the Airlink Rt210W router your computer needs to have a static IP address. You should complete one of the following steps first:
Now that you have setup a Static IP Address on your computer, please enter the IP address that you assigned to your computer here:
Now we need to know your routers IP address. You can find it a variety of ways.
It's ok if you don't know your Airlink Rt210W router's internal IP address. You can find it by doing one of the following:
Open a web browser like Internet Explorer or Firefox. Enter the internal IP address of your router in the address bar of your browser.
In the picture above the address bar has http://www.google.com in it. Just replace all of that with the internal IP address of your Airlink Rt210W router. By default the IP address should be set to 192.168.1.1.
We do not currently know the default username and password for your router. If you know them, please use our Comments page to let us know what they are. Thanks!Please visit our Default Router Passwords page if the username and password shown above do not work for you.
If you are having trouble with this guide, then perhaps PFConfig may be your solution. PFConfig is a software tool that will automatically forward ports for your Airlink Rt210W router to save you time and hassle.
Before we can forward ports to your DVR, we need to change some settings in your DVR. Use your remote control to enter your DVR's System Setup menu.
Select the Network option from the System Setup menu.
Write down the number that is in the IP ADDR, Gateway, and Sub Net sections. Change the IP Mode to STATIC IP. Do not change the Gateway and Sub Net settings. We are going to create static ip address for your DVR and use it from now on. The IP address in the picture above is 192.168.001.111. The 111 portion of that ip address is called the last octet. Each octet of an ip address ranges from 1 to 254. If you have an ip address where the last octet is closer to 1 than 254, add 50 to the last octet and set the IP ADDR to that. If you have an ip address that is closer to 254 than 1, subtract 50 from that last octet and set the IP ADDR to that. Save the settings and get out of your DVR's setup. In this example the last octet was 111. So the new octet in this example would be 161, and the ip address in this example would be 192.168.001.161. Do not use those values they are just an example.
You will need to restart your DVR before those settings will take effect.
Remember what you set the IP ADDR to. You will need to tell your router what IP Address to forward those ports to. Since you want to forward ports to your DVR you will need your DVR's IP address.
We've already taken care of setting up the static ip address in the guide below so you don't need to worry about that part. Just enter your DVR's static ip address that we just setup in to the box requesting your computer's ip address bellow. You won't really be forwarding ports to your computer, but you will be forwarding them to your DVR. Everything else is the same, just keep in mind that the ports will end up being forwarded to your DVR and not your computer.
Now that you are logged in to your Airlink Rt210W router you should see the following:
Click the Forwarding link near the top of the page.
We will list a series of lines here that will show you exactly how to forward the ports you need to forward. QSee QSD2216C16-250 requires you to forward the 80,5000-5001 ports. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the Forwarding menu and then click Apply.
|TCP Port Forwards:||WAN||LAN|
You should see another page of settings that need to be entered into one of the blank lines on your routers Forwarding page. Go ahead and enter those settings and then click Apply.
|TCP Port Forwards:||WAN||LAN|
And that is it! You are done!
Now that you have forwarded ports for QSee QSD2216C16-250 on the Airlink Rt210W you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.
