How to Forward Ports in a Asus AAM6010EV-T4 Router

Asus AAM6010EV-T4 routers include a very basic firewall that helps protect your home network form unwanted access from the internet. Since this firewall blocks incoming connections you may need open a port through it for certain games and applications. This process of opening a port is frequently called a port forward, since you are forwarding a port from the internet to your home network.

The basic process to open a port is:

  1. Setup a static IP address on either your computer or device that you want to forward a port to.
  2. Login to your Asus AAM6010EV-T4 router.
  3. Navigate to the port forwarding section.
    • Click the Advanced button.
    • Click the Port Forwarding button.
    • Click the Custom Port Forwarding link.
  4. Create a port forward entry.

While these steps might seem difficult at first, we will walk you through each step for your Asus AAM6010EV-T4 router.



We think that forwarding a port should be easy. That's why we created Network Utilities. Our software does everything that you need to forward a port.

When you use Network Utilities you get your port forwarded right now!

Step 1

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.
  • Or follow our Static IP Address guides to setup a static IP address.

After setting up a static ip address on your devices you need to login to your router.

Step 2

Now we are going to login to your Asus AAM6010EV-T4 router. Your router has a web interface, so you will login to it using your web browser. This can be either Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Edge. It usually does not matter which browser you choose to use.

Open up your web browser and find the address bar. It should look something like this:


192.168.1.1

In the picture above the address bar has 192.168.1.1 in it. Just replace all of that with the IP address of your Asus AAM6010EV-T4 router. Your router's IP address can also be refered to as your computer's default gateway.

By default the IP address is set to: 192.168.1.1

After entering the IP address of your router you can simply press enter. If all goes well you will see the following screen:

You should see a box prompting you for your username and password.

  • The Default Asus AAM6010EV-T4 Router Username is: Admin
  • The Default Asus AAM6010EV-T4 Router Password is: Admin

Enter your username and password, and then click the Login button to log in to your Asus AAM6010EV-T4 router.

Asus Usernames and Passwords

If your username and password do not work then please visit our Default Asus Router Passwords page.

If you still can't login to your router because you forgot your Asus AAM6010EV-T4 router username and password, use our How to Reset a Router Password guide to set your Asus AAM6010EV-T4 router back to its factory settings.

Step 3

Now we need to find the port forwarding section in your router. Here's how you do it. Starting from the first page in your router:

Asus AAM6010EV-T4

Click the Advanced button near the top of the page.

Asus AAM6010EV-T4

Click the Port Forwarding button near the left of the page.

Step 4

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:

Select an available connection from the Connection dropdown box.

In the Enable checkbox put a checkmark.

Enter the name of the program into the Application box. It doesn't really matter what you put into this box, but something that will remind you why these ports are being forwarded is be a good idea.

The protocol that you want to forward is selected from the Protocol box.

Try entering 192.168.1.1 into the Source IP Address box. The numbers 192.168.1.1 stand for any assigned IP address. When you enter that number it means whatever external IP address has been assigned to my router. If that does not work you have to enter your external IP address manually. This may be a problem because your external IP address can change. When it changes these ports will not be forwarded properly.

Put 192.168.1.1 into the Source Netmast box.

You need to enter the IP address that you are forwarding ports to in the Destination IP Address box. It's possible for this to be either the IP address of your computer or any other IP address on your network that you want ports forwarded to.

You can leave Destination Netmask set to 192.168.1.1.

If you are just forwarding a single port number then you can simply enter that same number into both the Destination Port Start, Destination Port Map and the Destination Port End boxes. If you are forwarding a range of ports, usually separated by a hyphen, then you need to enter the lowest number of that range into the Destination Port Start, Destination Port Map box and then enter highest number into the Destination Port End box.

Click the Apply button when you are finished.

Your ports should now be open. It is time to test them.

Test if Your Ports are Open

Now that you have forwarded ports on the Asus AAM6010EV-T4 you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.

To test if your port has been properly forwarded, you can use our Network Utilities tool, which includes a free Open Port Checker. Our Open Port Check tool is the only online port checking tool with Guaranteed Results.
