Simple FRITZ BOX WLAN 7050 Router Open Port Instructions

FRITZ WLAN7050 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 FRITZ BOX WLAN 7050 router.
  3. Navigate to the port forwarding section.
    • Click the Internet link.
    • Click on Portfreigabe.
    • Click the Neue Portfreigabe button.
    • Select Andere Anwendungen in the drop down.
  4. Create a port forward entry.

While these steps might seem difficult at first, we will walk you through each step for your FRITZ WLAN7050 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.

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.

  • Recommended - Our free program will setup a static IP address for you.
  • 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.

Step 2

Now we are going to login to your FRITZ WLAN7050 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:


192.168.178.1

In the picture above the address bar has 192.168.178.1 in it. Just replace all of that with the IP address of your FRITZ WLAN7050 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: 192.168.178.1

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

FRITZ WLAN7050

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

  • The Default FRITZ BOX WLAN 7050 Router Username is: none
  • The Default FRITZ BOX WLAN 7050 Router Password is: unknown

Enter your username and password, and then click the Login button to log in to your FRITZ WLAN7050 router.

If you still can't login to your router because you forgot your FRITZ WLAN7050 router username and password, use our How to Reset a Router Password guide to set your FRITZ WLAN7050 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:

FRITZ WLAN7050

FRITZ WLAN7050 port forward

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:

Put a name for this forward in the Bezeichnung 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.

Select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding from the Protokoll box.

If you are only forwarding a single port number then enter that number into both the an Port, von Port and the bis Port boxes. If you are forwarding a range of ports separated by a hyphen then enter the lowest number of that range into the an Port, von Port box and the highest number of that range into the bis Port box.

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

When you are all done click the Ubernehmen button.

Your ports should now be open. It is time to test them.

Test if Your Ports are Open

Now that you have forwarded ports on the FRITZ WLAN7050 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.
