This Gnet BB0060B router has a basic firewall that helps protect your home network from unwanted Internet access. The firewall does this by blocking the incoming and outgoing connections to the Internet unless a rule is created that states otherwise. Sometimes an online game or application needs additional rules. To open additional connections you need to create a port forward.
In this guide I will show you exactly how to open ports on the Gnet BB0060B router. These steps include:
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.
TIP: Write this static IP address down. You need it a little later in this guide.
It is now time to login to the Gnet BB0060B router. This router has a web interface meaning you login using a web browser. This can usually be any web browser you choose. Simply pick your favorite. Some common options are Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Firefox.
After you have opened the web browser of your choice, find the address bar. It will look like this:
We have circled the address bar in the image above. It has 192.168.1.1 in it. Replace what is currently in the address bar with the router's IP address.
TIP: The router's IP address can also be called the router's GUI address or the computer's default gateway.
The default Gnet BB0060B router IP address is: 192.168.1.1
Press the Enter key on your keyboard after you have finished entering the router's IP address in the address bar. You should be shown a authentication page like the one below:
If you are not shown a page asking for a username and/or password you probably entered the wrong IP address. This can be due to several different reasons. Find out what your router's IP address is by following the instructions on this How To Find Your Router's IP Address page.
You should see a box prompting you for your username and password.
Enter your username and password, and then click the OK button to log in to your Gnet BB0060B router.
This is a common place to get stuck. Here are a few things you can try:
First, try other Gnet usernames and passwords. If you have a slightly different firmware version you could have a different username and/or password as well. Here is our list of the Default Gnet Router Passwords.
The most common reason for a username/password combination not work is because it was changed in the past. Try guessing a few times or just use our Router Password Cracker. This automates the guessing process for you.
Finally if you are still stuck after trying both of the above options, it may be time to consider a factory reset. Do not reset your router unless you have exhausted your other troubleshooting methods. Every setting you have ever changed is erased so a full reconfiguration of your router is needed. Learn the basics of resetting a router in this How to Reset a Router guide.
Now we need to find the port forwarding section in your router. Here's how you do it. Starting on the Home page in your router:
First, you are going to click the Services option at the top of the page.
Next, open up the NAT Options drop down and choose Nat Rule Entry.
You should now see a page similar to the one above. Click the option of Add.
You are now on the correct page to make a port forward entry.
It is time to enter some data into your router so you can get your ports forwarded. To help you with this step, we need you to answer two questions:
(The IP address box above is referring to the Static IP address you created in Step 1.)
This next section is our router simulator. It will show you what data to enter based on your choices above. Right now we are showing the ports for XBox Live. Simply fill in the boxes in your router as you see them here.
Click Submit near the bottom of the page.
Now, click the Close button.
Select the IP Filter link near the top of the page.
Select Low from the Security Level drop down box.
Now click the Submit button near the bottom of the page.
Then click the Admin option at the top of the page.
Click the Commit & Reboot option under that.
On this page click Commit at the bottom of the page, then click Reboot at the bottom of the page.
Congratulations, you are done!
In order to quickly find out if the port forward you just completed on the Gnet BB0060B router went through correctly we recommend using a Open Port Checker. If you use our Network Utilities tool, it includes a free Open Port Checker. Our Open Port Checker is the only one online that has Guaranteed Results.
If you are still having trouble with port forwarding, use our Port Forwarding Software. It is and easy and fast way to get your port forwarded.
