Your **Belkin F7D1301 ** 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 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 ** 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.

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.

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

TIP: Write this static IP address down. You need it in Step 4.

Step 2

Now we are going to login to your Belkin F7D1301 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:

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 Belkin F7D1301 IP Address is: 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:

If you do not see a screen similar to the one above, you need to see if the router's IP address has been changed. To do this follow the directions on our How To Find Your Router's IP Address page.

On this page click the Virtual Servers option in the left sidebar.

You should now see a box prompting you for your username and password.

Enter you password, and then click the Submit button to log in to your Belkin F7D1301 router.

Belkin Usernames and Passwords

If your password does not work then please visit our Default Belkin Router Passwords page.

You can try and guess what the login password was changed to. If you need help use our Find Password App.

If you still can't login to your router because you forgot your Belkin F7D1301 router password, use our How to Reset a Router Password guide to set your Belkin F7D1301 router back to its factory settings.

Step 3

Now we need to find the port forwarding section in your router. Here's how you do it. Starting from the first page in your router:

Click the option of Virtual Servers in the left sidebar.

Step 4

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.

Put a name for this forward in the Description box so that you can remember why you set this forward up. The name does not matter so pick something that has meaning to you.

Enter the port to forward into both the Inbound Port and the Outbound Port boxes.

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

Enter the IP address that you are forwarding ports to in the Private IP Address box. This is either the IP address of a computer or the IP address of another device on your network.

When you're finished, click Apply Changes at the top of the screen to save your changes.

Test if Your Ports are Open

Now that you have forwarded ports on the Belkin F7D1301 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.
