Your Axesstel CDMA 1XEV-DO router has a a firewall that helps protect your home network from unwanted Internet activity. Your firewall works by blocking all incoming and outgoing connections that are not authorized by your router. Some online games and programs work much better if additional connections are allowed. To do this you need to create a port forward.
In this guide I will show you the basic process of port forwarding for the Axesstel CDMA 1XEV-DO router. The steps I will be covering are:
- How to setup a Static IP address on your computer or device you want to forward a port to.
- How to login to your Axesstel CDMA 1XEV-DO router.
- How to navigate to the port forwarding section.
- How to create 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.

- 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.
TIP: I recommend writing down the static IP address you just created. You need it later.
In this second step we will login to the Axesstel CDMA 1XEV-DO router interface. To do this we need to login to a web browser. It usually doesn't matter which browser you decide to use, I recommend picking one you are comfortable with such as Chrome, Internet Explorer, Edge, or Firefox.
Open up your web browser and find the address bar. It should look something 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 Axesstel CDMA 1XEV-DO 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 a login screen did not appear after you entered the router's IP address in the address bar, you need to find out what the router's IP address has been changed to. I recommend following the directions on the How To Find Your Router's IP Address page.
You should see a box prompting you for your username and password.
- The Default Axesstel CDMA 1XEV-DO Router Username is: admin
- The Default Axesstel CDMA 1XEV-DO Router Password is: password
Enter your username and password, and then click the OK button to log in to your Axesstel CDMA 1XEV-DO router.
If your username and password do not work then please visit our Default Axesstel Router Passwords page.
Second, try and guess what the password/username was changed to. Use our Find Password App to make this step easier.
If you still can't login to your router because you forgot your Axesstel CDMA 1XEV-DO router username and password, use our How to Reset a Router Password guide to set your Axesstel CDMA 1XEV-DO router back to its factory settings.
Now we need to find the port forwarding section in your router. Here's how you do it. Starting from the System page in your router:
Begin by selecting the option of Security at the top of the page.
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:
In the Port # box enter the port to forward.
Enter the IP address that you want to forward these ports to in the Local PC IP box. You can enter either the IP address of your computer or the IP address of another computer or device on your network.
Use the Protocol dropdown box to select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding.
When you're finished, click Save near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.
Test if Your Ports are Open
Now that you have forwarded ports on the Axesstel CDMA 1XEV-DO 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.
