Easiest Way to Forward Ports on the Inteno DG200A Router

A Inteno DG200A router contains a basic firewall to help protect your home network. A Firewall blocks incoming connections by nature. Sometimes you need to unblock some of these connections so you can run a game or application. This is called opening a port or port forwarding. Port forwarding is literally forwarding a port from the Internet to your home network.

To open a port in your Inteno DG200A router, follow these important steps:

  1. On the computer or device that you are forwarding ports to, you will need to set up a static IP address.
  2. Go ahead and log in to your Inteno DG200A router.
  3. Find the Port Forwarding section in your Inteno DG200A router.
    • Click on the Network tab at the top of the screen.
    • Find the Firewall tab located near the left of the screen and click on it.
    • Find the Port Forwarding link located near the left of the screen and click it.
  4. Create a Port Forwarding entry.

Opening ports in a router can be a difficult process the first few times. Don't get discouraged! We will walk you through all the steps to open a port in the Inteno DG200A 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.

Setup A Static IP Address

In order to ensure that your ports remain open in your device even after it reboots, it is important to set up a static IP address in your device.

  • 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.

Login To Your Inteno Router

The Inteno DG200A router uses a web interface to display router settings. In order to login to the Inteno DG200A 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 DG200A Router

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

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

The Inteno DG200A router's default IP address is:

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.

Basic Authentication

To login, enter the username and password for the Inteno DG200As. Important Note: If you have changed them in the past, you need to enter in those values.

  • The default Inteno DG200A Router Username is: user
  • The default Inteno DG200A Router Password is: admin

Once you enter your username and password, click the Login button.

Inteno Usernames and Passwords

If the username or password did not work check out our Default Inteno Router Passwords page.

If you are unable to log in even after trying the above list of passwords you may need to consider a reset for your router. Our guide How to Reset a Router can help you with that. After resetting the Inteno DG200A router your username and password will be reverted back to factory defaults.

Find the Port Forwarding Section

You should be on the home page of your Inteno DG200A router once you have successfully logged in. Find the Port Forwarding section of your router.

  • Find the Network tab located near the top of the screen and click on it.
  • Find the Firewall tab located near the left of the screen and click on it.
  • Click the Port Forwarding link, which can be found at the left of the screen.

You should now be on a page called Port Forwarding.

Create A Port Forward

Opening a port to a specific device may solve problems that you are having on your network. Make sure that it is necessary though, before opening a port, because you are effectively creating a pinhole in the firewall portion of your router that could lead to malicious traffic on your network. The risk is exceedingly low though, so don't let this warning stop you from making this change if you need it.

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:

  • Create a name for this forward and type it into the Name box. Since the name does not have an effect on the functionality of the forward, choose a name that will help you remember why the forward was created.
  • In the Dst. IP box, enter the IP address that you want ports forwarded to. This may be the IP address of your computer or the IP address of another device on your network that you want to forward ports to.
  • In the Protocol dropdown box, select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding. Choose Both if your router has that option. 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 the Both option, then you need to create two entries.
  • If you are forwarding a single port number, enter it into the Public Ports box. If you are forwarding a range of ports, enter the lowest number of that range into the Public Ports box followed by a hyphen followed by the largest number. For example a range of port numbers might look like this: 1000-2000.
  • In the Private Ports box, enter the same values that you entered into the Public Ports box.
  • When you are completely finished, click the Apply button at the bottom of the page to apply these changes.

Test If Your Ports Are Open

Finally, I strongly recommend testing to see if you forwarded the Inteno DG200A ports correctly. To do this you can use our Network Utilities tool, which includes a free Open Port Checker. Open Port Checker is the only online port checking tool that has Guaranteed Results.
