Port Forward Hyrule Warriors

When you are playing Hyrule Warriors you might need to forward some ports in your router. Forwarding ports is a useful trick in gaming because it can really help to make your network connection most stable and intermittently even faster. Routers were not designed to allow incoming network requests and some games can play tremendously better if an incoming connection is forwarded through the router to the game.

  • Your router's IP address.
  • Your gaming machine's IP address.
  • The TCP and UDP ports to forward.
