Huawei HG630b Router Port Forwarding

Huawei HG630b - Spark 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 Huawei HG630b router.
  3. Navigate to the port forwarding section.
    • Click the Advanced link.
    • Click on NAT.
    • Click the Port Mapping link.
  4. Create a port forward entry.

While these steps might seem difficult at first, we will walk you through each step for your Huawei HG630b - Spark 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 Huawei HG630b - Spark 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:


192.168.1.254

In the picture above the address bar has 192.168.1.254 in it. Just replace all of that with the IP address of your Huawei HG630b - Spark 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: 192.168.1.254

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

If you still can't login to your router because you forgot your Huawei HG630b - Spark router username and password, use our How to Reset a Router Password guide to set your Huawei HG630b - Spark 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:

Huawei HG630b - Spark Device Information

Click the Advanced link near the left of the page.

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:

Pick the Customization radio button choice.

Use the Interface dropdown box to select an available connection.

Select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding from the TCP/UDP box.

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

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

In the Internal Port box enter the port to forward.

Create a name for this forward and put it in the Mapping Name box. The name is only used as a reminder and has no effect on the port forward.

Click the Submit button when you are done.

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 Huawei HG630b - Spark 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.
