A D-Link EBR-2310 router contains a basic firewall to help protect your home network. A Firewall blocks incoming connections by nature. Sometimes you need to unblock some of these connections so you can run a game or application. This is called opening a port or port forwarding. Port forwarding is literally forwarding a port from the internet to your home network.
You need to follow the steps below to open ports in your D-Link EBR-2310 router:
- Set up a static IP address on the device or computer you are forwarding these ports to.
- Go ahead and log in to your D-Link EBR-2310 router.
- Find the Port Forwarding section in your D-Link EBR-2310 router.
- Find the Advanced tab located near the top of the screen and click it.
- Click the Port Forwarding tab, which is at the left of the screen.
- Go ahead and create a Port Forwarding entry.
The process of opening ports in your router may seem like a difficult task. If so, you are not alone! We are here to help walk you through the steps to open a port in the D-Link EBR-2310 router.
If you want to ensure that your ports remain open even after your device reboots, set up a static IP address in the device that you are opening a port for.

Or follow our Static IP Address guides to setup a static IP address.
After setting up a static ip address on your devices you need to login to your router.
In order to login to the D-Link EBR-2310 router you need to use a web browser. The D-Link EBR-2310 router uses what is called a web interface where you can access and control router settings.
Go ahead and open up your favorite web browser. If you don't have a favorite or are not sure what this means, open up Chrome, Firefox, or Edge.
If this step is confusing, we have simplified it for you with this link: Login to your EBR-2310 Router
Find the address bar once you have opened up a web browser. This is usually located at the top of the page, like in the image below.
Above is an example of what a web browser address bar looks like. Find the address bar in your web browser and type in your router's IP address.
The default IP address for the D-Link EBR-2310 router is: 192.168.0.1
Once you have entered your router's IP address in the address bar go ahead and click the enter button on your keyboard. You should see a box like the one shown below.
Enter the username and password for your D-Link EBR-2310 router. Note: If you have changed these numbers in the past, you will need to enter in the those values.
- The default D-Link EBR-2310 Router Username is: admin
- The default D-Link EBR-2310 Router Password is: blank
Once you have entered your username and password, remember to click the Login button to login to your D-Link EBR-2310 router.
D-Link Usernames and Passwords
If the username or password did not work check out our Default D-Link Router Passwords page.
If you are unable to log in even after trying the above list of passwords you may need to consider a reset for your router. Our guide How to Reset a Router can help you with that. After resetting the D-Link EBR-2310 router your username and password will be reverted back to factory defaults.
After successfully logging in to your D-Link EBR-2310 router you should see the router's home page on your screen. Find the Port Forwarding section of your router.
- Click on the Advanced tab at the top of the screen.
- Find the Port Forwarding tab located near the left of the screen and click on it.
You should now be on a page called Port Forwarding.
Opening a port to a specific device may solve problems that you are having on your network. Make sure that it is necessary though, before opening a port, because you are effectively creating a pinhole in the firewall portion of your router that could lead to malicious traffic on your network. The risk is exceedingly low, though, so don't let this warning stop you from making this change if you need it.
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:
Put a check in to the checkbox to Enable the entry.
In the Name box, type in a name for this forward. This will serve as a reminder to you in the future as to why this forward was set up, so give it a name that makes sense to you.
Go ahead and enter the IP address that you are forwarding ports to into the IP Address box. It is possible for this to be either the IP address of your computer or of any other device on your network that you want ports forwarded to.
The Ports to Open boxes, TCP and UDP, accept single ports (eg. 1000), port ranges separated by a hyphen (eg. 1000-2000), or a mix of both separated by commas (eg. 1000,2000-3000,4000).
Make the Always selection in the Schedule drop-down list. If you have configured a specific schedule you'd rather use, feel free to select that instead.
Select Allow All from the Inbound Filter drop-down box.
Remember to click the Save Settings button at the top of the page to apply these changes when you are completely finished.
Test If Your Ports Are Open
Finally, I strongly recommend testing to see if you forwarded the D-Link EBR-2310 ports correctly. To do this you can use our Network Utilities tool, which includes a free Open Port Checker. Open Port Checker is the only online port checking tool that has Guaranteed Results.
