Belkin F5D6231-4-v2 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 Belkin F5D6231-4 router.
  3. Navigate to the port forwarding section.
    • Click the Virtual servers link.
  4. Create a port forward entry.

While these steps might seem difficult at first, we will walk you through each step for your Belkin F5D6231-4-v2 router.

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.

  • Recommended - Our free program will setup a static IP address for you.
  • Or follow our Static IP Address guides to setup a static IP address.

After setting up a static ip address on your devices you need to login to your router.

Step 2

Now we are going to login to your Belkin F5D6231-4-v2 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:


192.168.2.1

In the picture above the address bar has 192.168.2.1 in it. Just replace all of that with the IP address of your Belkin F5D6231-4-v2 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: 192.168.2.1

After entering the IP address of your router you can simply press enter. If all goes well you will see the following screen:

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 Enable checkbox put a checkmark.

Enter the name of the program into the Description 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.

If you are forwarding a range of ports then you need to enter the lowest number of that range into the left hand Inbound port and Private port boxes and the highest number of that range into the right hand Inbound port and Private port boxes.

If you are forwarding a single port then you can enter that same port number into both of the Inbound port and both of the Private port boxes.

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

Enter the IP address to forward these ports to into the Private 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.

Your ports should now be open. It is time to test them.

Test if Your Ports are Open

Now that you have forwarded ports on the Belkin F5D6231-4-v2 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.
