The Huawei B315s-22 router has a very basic firewall that helps protect your home network from unwanted Internet activity. The firewall does this by blocking incoming and outgoing connections that are not authorized. Some of your online games and programs may run much smoother if you allow additional connections through the firewall. This process is typically called a port forward.

In this guide we will show you exactly how to port forward on the Huawei B315s-22 router. The steps we will cover are:

  1. How to setup a static IP address on the device you plan on forwarding these ports to.
  2. How to login to the **Huawei B315s-22 ** router interface.
  3. How to find the port forwarding page in the router's web interface.
  4. How to setup a port forward for the online game or program of your choice.

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 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.

This step is important because you want a permanent IP address in your device. If you do not set up a permanent IP address in your device, then when you device reboots it may get a new IP address.

Use a VPN Instead

Have you considered using a VPN instead of forwarding a port? For most users, a VPN is a much simpler and more secure choice than forwarding a port.

NordVPN birthday deal!

We use and recommend NordVPN because not only is it the fastest VPN, it includes a new feature called Meshnet that makes forwarding a port no longer necessary for most applications. With NordVPN Meshnet, you can connect to your devices from anywhere in the world, completely secure, over a highly encrypted VPN tunnel.

Every time you click on one of our affiliate links, such as NordVPN, we get a little kickback for introducing you to the service. Think of us as your VPN wingman.

TIP: Write this static IP address down. You need it in Step 4.

Step 2

It is now time to login to the Huawei B315s-22 router. To do this we need to open up a web browser. It typically doesn't matter which browser you decide to open, simply pick your favorite such as Edge, Chrome, Internet Explorer, or Firefox.

Once you have opened the browser of your choice, find the address bar. This is at the top of the page like this:

Above is an example of what a web browser address bar looks like. Find the address bar in your router and type in your router's IP address.

The default Huawei B315s-22 IP Address is:

After you press Enter you should get a login box like this one:

Huawei B315s-22 Login
Huawei B315s-22 Login.

If you do not see a login screen, you should check to see if the router's IP address has been changed. To do that, follow the directions on our How To Find Your Router's IP Address page.

Enter the login username and password and press the Log In button.

Having Trouble?

This is a pretty common place to get stuck. If you find yourself here, don't panic, there are a few things you can try:

  • First, check all the different Huawei default combinations. Here is our list of all known Default Huawei Router Passwords.
  • Second, try and guess what the password/username was changed to. Use our Find Password App to make this step easier.
  • Finally, if you are still stuck after trying both of the above options, it may be time to consider a factory reset. Learn more about this option on the How to Reset a Router page.

Step 3

Now that you are logged into the Huawei B315s-22 router, it is time to find the port forwarding section of the device. To do that we start on the Home page.

Then select the option of Security in the left sidebar.
