How to open a port on the Asus AM602

Asus AM602 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 AM602 router.
  3. Navigate to the port forwarding section.
    • Click the Advanced Setup link.
    • Click on NAT.
    • Click the Add button.
    • Click the Custom Server radio button.
    • Enter a name in the Custom Server box.
    • Enter the IP in to the Server IP Address box.
  4. Create a port forward entry.

While these steps might seem difficult at first, we will walk you through each step for your Asus AM602 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.

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.

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

Step 2

Now we are going to login to your Asus AM602 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 AM602 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:

  • The Default Asus AM602 Router Password is: admin

If you still can't login to your router because you forgot your Asus AM602 router username and password, use our How to Reset a Router Password guide to set your Asus AM602 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:

Put a dot into the Custom Server radio button.

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

Enter the ip address to forward these ports to into the Server IP Address box. If you are forwarding ports so you can run a program on your device, you should enter your device's ip address into that box.

Step 4

Now we are ready to enter some data in your router. In order to show you exactly how to configure your router we need you to answer 2 questions:

Application :
IP Address :

(The IP Address to forward to should be the same "static ip address" that you setup above)

Our router simulator shows you exactly what data to enter in your router based on your choices above. We are currently showing the ports for XBox Live. You should fill out the boxes in the router as you see them here:

When you're finished, click Save/Apply near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.


Test if Your Ports are Open

Now that you have forwarded ports for on the Asus AM602 you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.
