Port Forwarding on the Belkin F7D1301

Your Belkin F7D1301 v1 router has a basic firewall that helps protect your home network from unwanted Internet activity. The firewall does this by blocking incoming and outgoing ports. Some online games and programs run much smoother if you allow additional ports through. To do this you need to create what is called a port forward.

Here in this guide we will show you exactly how to port forward on the Belkin F7D1301 v1 router. We will show you:

  1. How to setup a static IP address on the device you plan on forwarding these ports to.
  2. How to login to the Belkin F7D1301 v1 router interface.
  3. How to find the port forwarding page in the router's web interface.
  4. How to setup a port forward for the online game or program of your choice.

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.
