To port forward the Alcatel-Lucent I-240W-Q router means you are opening a connection between the Internet and a specific device on your home network. This is normally done for online gaming or some other online application. A port forward allows a port or connection through the router's firewall making the game or application respond quicker.
In this guide we will walk you through each of the steps in port forwarding the Alcatel-Lucent I-240W-Q router. These steps are:
- How to setup a static IP address on the specific device you want to forward these ports to.
- How to login to the Alcatel-Lucent I-240W-Q router.
- How to find the port forwarding section of the router.
- How to make a port forward entry.
It is important to setup a static ip address in the device that you are forwarding a port to. This ensures that your ports will remain open even after your device reboots.
- Recommended - Our free program will setup a static IP address for you. Download Network Utilities today!
- Another highly recommended way of getting a permanent IP address is to set up a DHCP Reservation.
- Or, follow our Static IP Address Setup guides.
With DHCP reservations you can manage your devices from your router. This centralizes the management of your network and helps prevent IP address conflicts. Using this method you do not have to log in to your devices separately.
NOTE: Write this static IP address down. You need it for Step 4.
It is time to login to the Alcatel-Lucent I-240W-Q router. To do this you need to open a web browser. It typically doesn't matter which browser you decide to use. I recommend picking the one you are the most familiar with. Some of the common web browsers include Chrome, Internet Explorer, Edge, and Firefox.
Open the web browser and find the address bar. This is normally be at the top of the page like this:
Above is an example of what a web browser address bar looks like. Find the address bar in your router and type in your router's IP address.
The default Alcatel-Lucent I-240W-Q IP Address is: 192.168.0.1
After entering the IP address of your router you can simply press Enter. If all goes well you will see the following screen:
If the above login page does not appear, you need to find out what the router's IP address has been changed to. To help you with this, follow the instructions on our How To Find Your Router's IP Address page.
You should see a box prompting you for a Username and Password.
- The Default Alcatel-Lucent I-240W-Q Router Username is: admin
- The Default Alcatel-Lucent I-240W-Q Router Password is: password
Enter your username and password, and then click the Login button to login to your Alcatel-Lucent I-240W-Q router.
Alcatel-Lucent Usernames and Passwords
This is a common place to get stuck. Here are three things you can do:
- Try other Alcatel-Lucent passwords. If you have a slightly different firmware version you could easily have a different username and password combination. Her is our list of different Default Alcatel-Lucent Router Passwords.
- How about using our Router Password Cracker. It finds the password for you.
- If you are still unable to access the router's interface you may need to consider a factory reset. A factory reset erases all the previously configured settings. This is not advisable unless you have no other options. Learn the basics of resetting a router on this How to Reset a Router page.
You should now be in the router interface. It is time to find the port forwarding section of the router. We begin on the Device Information page:
Click the Application link in the left sidebar.
A new menu appears below the last. Pick the new option of Port Forwarding.
Congratulations, you are now on the correct page to make a port forward entry.
Here are the ports to forward for Xbox Live:
- TCP Ports: 3074
- UDP Ports: 3074
If you are looking for the ports for a different application you can find it by either:
If you are forwarding a range of ports, enter the lowest number of that range into the left WAN Port box. Then enter the highest number of that range into the right WAN Port box. If you are forwarding a single port, enter that port number into the left WAN Port and the right WAN Port boxes.
In the LAN Port box enter the port to forward.
Enter the IP address of the device that you want to forward ports to into the LAN IP Address box. This can be either the IP address of your computer or the IP address of another device on your network.
Select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding from the Protocol box.
In the Enable Mapping checkbox put a checkmark.
In the WAN Connection List dropdown box select an available connection.
Click the Add button when you are finished.
Don't forget to click the Add button when you are finished.
Your ports should now be open. It is time to test them.
Test if Your Ports are Open
