Your Jensen Scandinavia LYNX9000 router protects your home network by limiting incoming connections from the internet. Sometimes it is necessary to unblock some of those connections like when you want to create a direct connection for gaming, use a specific application, or set up a new device on your network. This process is called forwarding or opening a port. In your Jensen Scandinavia LYNX9000 router you many need to open a port, which means assigning a port number or set of port numbers to a specific IP address. This routes the incoming data to the correct device on your network.
Follow these steps to open a port in your Jensen Scandinavia LYNX9000 router:
- Set up a static IP address on the computer or device that you are forwarding ports to.

Step 3 - Find The Port Forwarding Section
You should be on the home page of your Jensen Scandinavia LYNX9000 router once you have successfully logged in. Find the Port Forwarding or Virtual Server section of your router.
- Find the Advanced tab located near the top of the screen and click on it.
- Find the NAT link at the left of the screen and click it.
Step 4 - Create A Port Forward Entry
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:
Forwarding a Range of Ports
To forward a range of ports you'll need to be in the Port Forwarding section. If you're not already there, click the Port Forwarding link at the left of the screen.
Make sure to put a check in the box named Enable Port Forwarding.
In the Private 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 Type dropdown box, select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding. Choose Both if your router has that option. Otherwise, choose 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.
Enter the lowest number of the port range in to the left Port Range box, then the highest number of the range in to the right Port Range box.
Make up a name to put in the Comment box. The name does not have any effect on the functionality of the forward; it's simply there so you can know why it was created.
To add the entry, click the Add button.
Make sure to click the Apply button at the bottom of the page to apply these changes, when you are completely finished.
Forwarding a Single Port
Forwarding a single port is done in the Virtual Servers section, so go ahead and click the Virtual Servers link at the left of the screen.
Don't forget to put a check in the Enable Virtual Server box.
Go ahead and enter the IP address that you are forwarding ports to into the Private IP box. It is possible for this to be either the IP address of your computer or of any other device on your network that you want ports forwarded to.
Enter the port to forward in to the Private Port box.
Select the protocol type of the ports that you are forwarding from the Type dropdown box. If your router has the option of Both, then go ahead and select that. Otherwise, select either TCP or UDP as needed. If you need to forward a port for both TCP and UDP, but your router does not have Both, then you will need to create two entries.
In the Public Port box, enter the same values that you entered into the Private Port box.
Create a name for this forward and type it into the Comment 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.
To add the entry, click the button labeled Add.
Click the Apply button at the bottom of the page to apply these changes when you are completely finished.
