To setup port forwarding on the Tenda WBR-T3 router your device needs to have a static IP address. You should complete one of the following steps first:
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 Tenda WBR-T3 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 Tenda WBR-T3 router. By default the IP address should be set to 192.168.0.1.
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 Tenda WBR-T3 router.
Please visit our Default Tenda 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 Tenda WBR-T3 router username and password, use our How to Reset a Router Password guide to set your Tenda WBR-T3 router back to its factory settings.
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 Tenda WBR-T3 router to save you time and hassle.
Before we can forward ports for LimeWire, we need to figure out what ports LimeWire is using. Here is a brief walkthrough on how to do that. Go ahead and open up LimeWire.
Click Tools in the menu at the top of your screen. In the list that drops down click Options.
On the left side of this page click the plus sign in front of Advanced. Another list should have appeared under advanced. Click the Firewall Config option in this new list. In the Router Configurations section we want to put a dot into the Manual Port Forward radio button. Now we need to select a port to use for LimeWire. It doesn't really matter what port you choose, but a port between 10000 and 60000 would be a good idea. These higher numbered ports are rarely blocked by ISPs. Once you have chosen a port please enter that port number into the box to the right of the Manual Port Forward box. That port should also be put into the Listen on Port box. I also need to you enter that port number into the box below.
Now that you are logged in to your Tenda WBR-T3 router you should see the following:
Click the Virtual Server link near the left 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. Limewire requires you to forward the ports you entered above. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the Virtual Server menu.
|ID||Service Port||Private IP||Enable||Del|
When you're finished, click Save near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.
And that's it! You're done!
Now that you have forwarded ports for Limewire on the Tenda WBR-T3 you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.
