Your router contains a firewall that helps protect your home network from unwanted Internet activity. The firewall does this by blocking all incoming and outgoing connections that are not authorized. Some online games and programs will run much smoother if you have more connections (ports) opened up. The process of opening up more ports is called a port forward.

In this guide I will be showing you how to port forward on the Aztech Singtel DSL7000GRV router. The four steps I will cover in this guide 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.

Get Started Now!

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 birthday deal!

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 IP address down, you need it a little later in this guide.

Step 2

It is now time to login to the Aztech Singtel DSL7000GRV router. To do this you need to use a web browser. Usually it doesn't matter which browser you decide to use. We recommend picking one you are familiar with such as Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox or Edge.

Now open up that web browser and find the address bar. This is normally 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 DSL7000GRV IP Address is:

Press the Enter key.

If the correct IP address was used you will see a login box or screen like the one here:

If you don't see a authentication page asking for a username and/or password, it means the router has a different IP address. To find out what it is, follow the directions on this How To Find Your Router's IP Address page.

The default username for the Aztech Singtel DSL7000GRV is: found in the paperwork from your Internet Service Provider

The default password for the Aztech Singtel DSL7000GRV is: found in the paperwork from your Internet Service Provider

Once you have entered the username and password, click the OK button or the Enter key. You should now be in your router interface.

Having Trouble?

Are you having trouble logging into the Aztech Singtel DSL7000GRV router? Here are a few troubleshooting ideas:

  • Try other Aztech default username and password combinations. Here is the list of all the known Default Aztech Router Passwords. When router companies update the router firmware, every once in a while they change the router's default username and password combinations as well.
  • If the list above did not work, it is probably because you changed the username and/or password in the past and probably don't remember. If you use our Find Password App, it will help you guess what the username and/or password was changed to.
  • Finally, you may need to consider a factory reset for the Aztech Singtel DSL7000GRV. This erases everything you have changed on the router in the past. Learn how to do this on our How to Reset a Router page.

Step 3

Now that you are logged into the router interface, it is time to find the port forwarding page. To do that we begin on the Quick Setup page:

On this page click the Firewall Configuration link at the top of the page.

Underneath that you should see some more choices. Pick the one labeled Port Forwarding.

In the Use Interface dropdown box select an available connection.

Select the Custom Server radio button.

You need to name this entry in the Custom Server box. The name does not make any difference in the forward; it's just there so that you can remember later why you setup this forward.

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 a device other than your computer then you can enter your device's IP address into that box.

If you are forwarding a range of ports then you need to enter the lowest number of the range into the External Port Start and Internal Port Start boxes and the highest number of the range into the External Port End and Internal Port End boxes. If you are only forwarding a single port then you can enter that same port number into the External Port Start, External Port End, Internal Port Start and Internal Port End boxes.

Select the required protocol for these ports from the Protocol dropdown box.

When you are finished, click the Save/Apply button.

Finally, you need to check if the ports forwarded like they were supposed to. To do this we recommend using our Open Port Checker found in our Network Utilities. Our port checker uses a local application to see if the ports are open, ensuring an accurate reading.
