The Huawei B593s-22 4G router has a firewall. This firewall helps protect your home network from unwanted Internet access. Your firewall does this by blocking all incoming and outgoing connections that are not authorized. Some online gaming and programs will run much smoother if you authorize additional connections. This process is often called a port forward.

In this guide I will show you how to port forward on the Huawei B593s-22 4G router. The steps I will be walking you through are:

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.

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 the address when creating a port forward entry.

Step 2

Once you have a static IP address for the device you are forwarding these ports to, it is time to login to the Huawei B593s-22 4G router. To do this you need to open a web browser. It normally doesn't matter which browser you decide to use. I recommend using one you are familiar with such as Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, or Edge.

Open up your web browser and find the address bar. It should look something 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 B593s-22 IP Address is:

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

Huawei B593s-22 Login.

If you don't see a login page then you need to find out what the router's IP address has been changed to. Follow the directions in our How To Find Your Router's IP Address page.

Enter the router's username and password in the spaces:

Press the purple Login button to access the Huawei B593s-22 4G router interface.

Having Trouble?

Are you having trouble logging into the Huawei B593s-22 4G router? Here are a few troubleshooting ideas:

  • Try other Huawei default username/password combinations. Here is the list of all the known Default Huawei Router Passwords. When router companies update the router firmware, every once in a while they change the router's default username/password combination as well.
  • If the list above did not work, it is probably because you changed the username and/or password in the past and have forgotten. Use our Find Password App, it will help you find out what the username and/or password was changed to.
  • Finally, you may need to consider a factory reset for the Huawei B593s-22 4G router. This erases everything you have changed on the router in the past. Learn how to do this on our How to Reset a Router page.

Step 3

Now that you are logged into the Huawei B593s-22 4G router interface you need to find the port forwarding section of the device. To help you do this we will begin on the Overview page:
