To setup port forwarding on the ZyXEL P-335WT router your computer 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 ZyXEL P-335WT 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 ZyXEL P-335WT router. By default the IP address should be set to 192.168.1.1.
You should see a box prompting you for your ZyXEL P-335WT password. Enter the password now.
Click the Login button to log in to your ZyXEL P-335WT router.
Please visit our Default ZyXEL 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 ZyXEL P-335WT router password, use our How to Reset a Router Password guide to set your ZyXEL P-335WT 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 ZyXEL P-335WT router to save you time and hassle.
BitComet chooses a random port to listen on when you install it. Before we can forward ports for BitComet, we need to find out what port BitComet is using. Go ahead and open BitComet.
In the menu at the top of your screen, click Options. Clicking Options will cause a menu to drop down. In this new menu click Preferences.
In the menu on the left the top option Connection should be selected. On the right hand side of this window you should see a Listen Port option. That is the port that you need to forward. You can change it if you like. Please enter the listen port below.
There is one more thing we need to do. We need to shut off the UPNP of BitComet.
In the menu on the left hand side under Advanced, click Connection. There should be an Enable UPnP Port Mapping(XP only) checkbox on the right hand side. Make sure it is unchecked.
Now that you are logged in to your ZyXEL P-335WT router you should see the following:
Click the Advanced link near the left of the page.
You should now see a new menu. In this new menu, click SUA/NAT.
We will list a series of lines here that will show you exactly how to forward the ports you need to forward. BitComet requires you to forward the ports you entered above. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the SUA Server menu.
|#||Active||Name||Start Port||End Port||Server IP Address|
When you're finished, click Apply near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.
And that's it! You're done!
Now that you have forwarded ports for BitComet on the ZyXEL P-335WT you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.
