Did you know your Beetel 777VR1 router has a very basic firewall that helps protect your home network from unwanted Internet activity. This firewall works by blocking incoming connections that you may actually want opened for an online game or application. The process of opening these additional connections is typically called a port forward.
Here in this guide I will be showing you exactly how to port forward on the Beetel 777VR1 router. The steps I will walk you through are:
- How to setup a static IP address on the device you plan on forwarding these ports to.
- How to login to the Beetel 777VR1 router web interface.
- How to find the port forwarding page in the router's web interface.
- How to setup a port forward for the online game or program of your choice.
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 Static IP Setter will set up a static IP address for you.
- Another way to get a permanent IP address is to set up a DHCP reservation.
- Or, manually create a static ip address with our Static IP Guides.
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.
TIP: Write this static IP address down for Step 4.
After creating a static IP address for the device you are forwarding this port to, you need to login to the Beetel 777VR1 router. Your router uses a web interface which means to login you need to use a web browser such as Chrome, Internet Explorer, or Firefox. It normally does not matter which one you pick.
Once you have opened up the web browser, find the address bar. This is 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 Beetel 777VR1 IP Address is: 192.168.1.1
After typing the IP address into the address bar, click the Enter key on your keyboard.
A login screen should appear like this:
If a login screen did not pop up when you typed in your router's IP address, there is a good possibility that the IP address has been changed. Follow the directions on our How To Find Your Router's IP Address page to find out what the router's IP address is.
Once you have a login page, input the router's username and password.
- The Default Beetel 777VR1 Router Username is: admin
- The Default Beetel 777VR1 Router Password is: password
Press the Login button and you should now have access to your router's web interface.
This is a pretty common place to get stuck. If you find yourself here, don't panic, there are a few things you can try:
- First, check all the different Beetel default combinations. Here is our list of all known Default Beetel Router Passwords.
- Second, try and guess what the password/username was changed to. Use our Find Password App to make this step easier.
- Finally, if you still are stuck after trying both of the above options, it may be time to consider a factory reset. Learn more about this option on the How to Reset a Router page.
It is now time to find the port forwarding section of the router. To help you with this step, we begin on the Device Info page.
Begin by selecting the option at the top of the page labeled Advanced.
This brings you to a page like the one above. Click the option of NAT in the left sidebar.
Then below that select Virtual Server.
Congratulations, you have found the port forwarding 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:
Pick the User-defined Service Name radio button choice.
Enter the name of the program into the User-defined Service Name 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.
Use the Protocol dropdown box to select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding.
In the WAN Setting and WAN Interface dropdown box select an available connection.
Put the same port number into both the WAN Port and the LAN Open Port boxes.
Enter the IP address that you want to forward these ports to in the LAN IP Address box. You can enter either the IP address of your computer or the IP address of another computer or device on your network.
After each entry is made, you will need to click the button at the bottom of the page labeled Apply Changes.
Test Your Ports
Are your the ports you just forwarded really open? An easy way to find out is use our free Open Port Checker. It uses a local application to see if the ports are open or not. This guarantees our port checkers accuracy.
