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 Hawking WR254 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 Hawking WR254 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 Hawking WR254 router. By default the IP address should be set to 192.168.8.1.
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 Hawking WR254 router to save you time and hassle.
Before we can forward ports for Vuze, we need to figure out what ports Vuze is using. Here is a brief walkthrough on how to do that. Go ahead and open up Vuze.
Click Tools in the menu at the top of the program. Then click Options in the list that drops down.
In the menu on the left hand side of your screen, click Connection. On this page you should see a box called Incoming TCP / UDP listen port. You can change the port number that Vuze is using if you like. The number that is in that Port box is the port that you will have to forward.
Please enter the number that was in that box below.
Now that you are logged in to your Hawking WR254 router you should see the following:
You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now.
Click the Ok button to log in to your Hawking WR254 router.
Please visit our Default Hawking Router Passwords page if the username and password shown below did not work for you.
If you can't login to your router because you forgot your Hawking WR254 router username and password, use our How to Reset a Router Password guide to set your Hawking WR254 router back to its factory settings.
Click the Advanced Setup link near the top of the page.
You should now see a new menu. In this new menu, click Virtual Server.
We will list a series of lines here that will show you exactly how to forward the ports you need to forward. Vuze requires you to forward the ports you entered above. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the Virtual Server menu.
|Service Port||Server IP in LAN||Port in LAN||Protocol|
When you're finished, click Save & Restart near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.
And that's it! You're done!
Now that you have forwarded ports for Vuze on the Hawking WR254 you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.
