This Belkin F5D7633-4 router already has a basic firewall. This firewall protects your local network. Incoming connections to your network have been blocked for your protection. You may need to open a port for certain games or applications to run properly. The process of opening a port is called a port forwarding.

The steps involved are:

  1. Setting up a static IP Address on the computer or device you want to forward the ports to.
  2. Logging into your Belkin F5D7633-4 router.
  3. Navigating to the port forwarding section.
    • Click the Virtual Server option.
  4. Creating a port forward entry.

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.
