This Aztech Globe DSL5068EN-1T1R router has a firewall. The firewall protects your home network from unwanted Internet access. The firewall does this by blocking all incoming and outgoing connections (ports) that have not been authorized. Some online games and programs require additional ports to be opened for optimal performance. In order to allow these ports to be opened you need to create a port forward.

In this guide I will be showing you how to properly open a port or ports on your Aztech Globe DSL5068EN-1T1R router. These steps are:

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.

This step is important because you want a permanent IP address in your device. If you do not set up a permanent IP address in your device, then when you device reboots it may get a new IP address.

Use a VPN Instead

Have you considered using a VPN instead of forwarding a port? For most users, a VPN is a much simpler and more secure choice than forwarding a port.

NordVPN is the fastest VPN!

We use and recommend NordVPN because not only is it the fastest VPN, it includes a new feature called Meshnet that makes forwarding a port no longer necessary for most applications. With NordVPN Meshnet, you can connect to your devices from anywhere in the world, completely secure, over a highly encrypted VPN tunnel.

Every time you click on one of our affiliate links, such as NordVPN, we get a little kickback for introducing you to the service. Think of us as your VPN wingman.

TIP: Write this static IP address down. You need it a little later in the port forwarding process.

Step 2

Time to login to the Aztech Globe DSL5068EN-1T1R router. Your router along with most others require a web browser to interact with the router interface. You need to open up a web browser. It normally doesn't matter which one. I recommend choosing one you are the most familiar with such as Chrome, Internet Explorer, Edge, or Firefox.

Once you have opened the web browser of choice, find the address bar. The address bar is typically located 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 Aztech DSL5068EN-1T1R IP Address is:

Once you have entered the router's IP address, press the Enter key. If the IP address was correct you should get an authentication page like this:

If you did not get an image similar to the one above, you need to find out what the router's IP address has been changed to. To do this follow our guide titled How To Find Your Router's IP Address.

You should see a logged out home page. From there click the option near the top on the left side, click the Login button.

This gives you a page that asks for a username and password.

Having Trouble?

If the default values for the Aztech Globe DSL5068EN-1T1R router did not work, there are a few things you can try:

  • I first recommend trying other default Aztech usernames and passwords. A slightly different firmware version may also have a different username and/or password. Here is our list of the Default Aztech Router Passwords.
  • If the above option did not help then it is likely you or someone else has changed the router's username and/or password. You can either try and guess what the name was changed to or use our Find Router Password App. Our app does the guessing for you, making owning a router much easier.
  • If you are still unable to access your router interface you may need to consider a factory reset. A reset like this one erases all previously changed settings (including the username and password). The problem with a reset is that you have to completely reconfigure your router afterwards. I do not recommend a reset unless you have exhausted all your other troubleshooting options.

Step 3

It is now time to find the port forwarding section of the Aztech Globe DSL5068EN-1T1R router. To help you with this step we begin on the Home page of the router:

Now click the option in the very top of the page in the left corner labeled Advanced Mode.

This should take you to the page below. If it does not click the link near the top labeled Router Features, and then below that choose Port Forwarding.

You should now be on the correct page to make a port forward.

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:

Make sure that the Custom application radio button is selected.

Make up a name to put in the Custom application box. The name does not have any effect on the functionality of the forward, it's simply there so you can know why it was created.

If you are forwarding a single port, enter that port number into both of the Public Port Range and both of the Private Port Range boxes. If you are forwarding a range of ports, enter the lowest number of that range into the left hand Public Port Range and Private Port Range boxes. Then enter the highest number of that range into the right hand Public Port Range and Private Port Range boxes.

Enter the IP address to forward these ports to into the Local IP Address box. If you are forwarding ports so you can run a program on a device other than your computer then you can enter your device's IP address into that box.

Select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding from the Protocol box.

After you are done click the Apply button.

Test Your Ports

After you have finished port forwarding on the Aztech Globe DSL5068EN-1T1R router you should test them to see if the forwarded properly. In order to do this I recommend using our Open Port Checker. It is a reliable and totally free to use. Our port checker uses a local application to see if your ports are open. This makes our port checker guaranteed to have accurate results.
