On this Belkin F9K1009v2 router there is a firewall that helps protect your home network from unwanted Internet access. The router's firewall does this by blocking connections both to and from your local home network. In order to unblock these connections for a game or other program to run well you need to make a port forward on the Belkin F9K1009v2 router.
In this guide we take you through each of the following steps:
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.
When you use Network Utilities you get your port forwarded right now!
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.
Now that you have setup a static IP address for the computer you are forwarding these ports to, let's login to your Belkin F9K1009v2 router.
This Belkin F9K1009v2 router uses a web interface menu, which means you need to access the interface using a web browser. It does not matter what browser you decide to use, simply pick your favorite. Some of the more common web browsers include Internet Explorer, Chrome, Edge, and Firefox.
In the image above, the address bar has 192.168.2.1 in it. Use this space type in the router's IP address. If you look for the router's IP address, remember it is also called the default gateway or the router's GUI address.
If you have changed the router's IP address in the past or the default IP address for your router does not work, then you need to find out what the router's IP address is. Use this How To Find Your Router's IP Address guide to help you locate it.
The default IP address for the Belkin F9K1009v2 router is: 192.168.2.1
Type this address into the address bar and click the Enter key on your keyboard. If everything went as it should have, you see the following page:
The page you are shown should look very similar to the one shown above, except it will have a Login option in the upper right corner of the page. Click this link and press submit because the Belkin F9K1009v2 router does not have a default username or password.
At this point you should be logged in to your Belkin F9K1009v2 router.
If you are unable to login to the Belkin F9K1009v2 router, here are a few things you can try:
To find the port forwarding section of the router we begin on the Dashboard.
On this screen, click the green link labeled Advanced Settings.
Once you have opened the Advanced Settings menu, select the link under Firewall labeled Port Forwarding.
You should now be on the correct page to setup a port forward.
It is time to setup the router for your port forward. In order for us to show you exactly what to enter in your router, we need to know a little more information from you:
(Please make sure the IP address box above contains the static IP address you setup in Step 1.)
This next section is our router simulator. It will show you exactly what to enter in your router based on how you answered the above two questions. According to our data you want to forward ports for XBox Live.
If this is correct, all you need to do is fill out the boxes in your router exactly as you see them below.
Try to find a save button on this page when you are finished. Most likely you can find one at the bottom of the page.
Now that you have finished with the port forwards, you need to check your work. In order to check them you need to see if the ports are open. We recommend using our Open Port Checker. It is free and part of our Network Utilities. Our port checker is one of the only ones online that uses a local application to see if the server is listening on the selected ports. This makes it guaranteed to be accurate.
If you are still having trouble give our Port Forwarding Software a try. Our port forwarding software includes everything you need to diagnose, troubleshoot, and fix any port forwarding issues you might have.
