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 Symbol WS-2000 router's internal IP address. You can find it by doing one of the following:
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 Symbol WS-2000 router. By default the IP address should be set to 192.168.1.254.
Click the Login button to log in to your Symbol WS-2000 router.
Please visit our Default Symbol 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 Symbol WS-2000 router username and password, use our How to Reset a Router Password guide to set your Symbol WS-2000 router back to its factory settings.

You should now see a new menu. In this new menu, click NAT.

Click the Port Forwarding button near the right 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. Need for Speed requires you to forward the 9442 ports. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the Port Forwarding menu and then click Add.
|Name||Transport||Start Port||End Port||IP Address|
When you're finished, click Ok near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.
And that's it! You're done!
