Dlink DSL-G604T 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 D-Link DSL-G604T router.
  3. Navigate to the port forwarding section.
    • Click the Advanced link.
    • Click on Port Forwarding.
    • Click the User radio button.
    • Click the Add button.
  4. Create a port forward entry.

While these steps might seem difficult at first, we will walk you through each step for your Dlink DSL-G604T router.



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.

Step 2

Now we are going to login to your Dlink DSL-G604T 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:


192.168.1.1

In the picture above the address bar has 192.168.1.1 in it. Just replace all of that with the IP address of your Dlink DSL-G604T 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: 192.168.1.1

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

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

  • The Default D-Link DSL-G604T Router Username is: admin
  • The Default D-Link DSL-G604T Router Password is: admin

Enter your username and password, and then click the Login button to log in to your Dlink DSL-G604T router.

Dlink Usernames and Passwords

If your username and password do not work then please visit our Default D-Link Router Passwords page.

If you still can't login to your router because you forgot your Dlink DSL-G604T router username and password, use our How to Reset a Router Password guide to set your Dlink DSL-G604T 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:

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:

Create a name for this forward and put it in the Rule Name box. The name is only used as a reminder and has no effect on the port forward.

Use the Protocol dropdown box to select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding.

If you are forwarding a single port, enter that port number into the Port Start, Port Map and the Port End boxes. If you are forwarding a range of ports, enter the lowest number of that range into the Port Start, Port Map box. Then enter the highest number of that range into the Port End box.

After you are done click the Apply button.

Click the Tools link near the top of the page.

When you're finished, click Save All near the center of the screen to save your changes.
