Your B2338-168 router helps to protect your network by blocking incoming internet connections. This is an important feature that helps you to control which applications have access to your network. Sometimes you want to allow network access to a specific application in order to play a game, connect a device, or use an app. The Huawei B2338-168 can unblock certain incoming connections through port forwarding or by opening a port. You can open ports in your B2338-168 by assigning specific ports to an IP address. Forwarding these ports directs incoming data to a specific device or application.

Follow the steps below to open ports in your Huawei B2338-168 router:

  1. Go ahead and setup a static IP address on the computer or device that you are forwarding these ports to.
  2. Login to your Huawei B2338-168 router.

  • 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

The Huawei B2338-168 router uses a web interface to display router settings. In order to login to the Huawei B2338-168 router you need to use a web browser.

Open your favorite web browser. If you don't have a favorite or are not sure what this means, open up Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer. If you are already in a browser window, go ahead and open up a new tab.

We have simplified this step for you with this link: Login to your B2338-168 Router

Find the address bar in your browser window. This is usually found at the top of the page, like in the image below.


192.168.1.1

You should see 192.168.1.1 in the address bar of the screenshot shown above. This is your router's IP address (sometimes listed as the default gateway.)

The Huawei B2338-168 router's default IP address is: 192.168.1.1

Once you have finished entering your router's IP address into the address bar, click the enter button on your keyboard. A box similar to the one below should appear.

Step 4

Make sure that it is necessary for you to open a port in your router before doing so, since this will allow data to come through the firewall portion of your router to a specific device. It is possible that this could lead to malicious traffic on your network. However, don't let this warning stop you from making this change if you need it because the risk is very low.

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:

  1. Click on the Add button.

  2. Use the Protocol dropdown box to select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding. If your router has the option of Both then choose that. Otherwise select either TCP or UDP as needed. If you need to forward a port for both TCP and UDP and your router does not have Both then you have to create two entries.

  3. Go ahead and enter the port number into the left WAN Port and the right WAN Port boxes, to forward a single port. To forward a range of ports, enter the lowest number of that range into the left WAN Port box and then enter the highest number of that range into the right WAN Port box.

  4. In the LAN Port box, enter the same values that you entered into the left WAN Port box.

  5. Go ahead and enter the IP address that you are forwarding ports to into the LAN IP 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.

  6. Put a check in the Enabled box.

  7. When you are completely finished, click the Apply button at the bottom of the page to apply these changes.
