Did you know your Luxul XWR-1750 router has a very basic firewall? This firewall works by blocking all incoming and outgoing connections that you have not authorized. Some online games and programs run much smoother if you have additional connections opened. In order to open additional connections you need to create what is called a port forward.
In this guide I will show you exactly how to create a port forward on the Luxul XWR-1750 router. The steps include:
- How to setup a static IP address on the device you plan on forwarding these ports to.
- How to login to the Luxul XWR-1750 router web interface.
- How to find the port forwarding page in the router's web interface.
- How to setup a port forward for the online game or program of your choice.
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 Static IP Setter will set up a static IP address for you.
- Another way to get a permanent IP address is to set up a DHCP reservation.
- Or, manually create a static ip address with our Static IP Guides.
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.
TIP: Write this static IP address down. You need it in Step 4.
Now we are going to login to your Luxul XWR-1750 router. Your router has a web interface, so you need to login 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.

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:

Then select Port Forwarding option from the new menu.
You should now be on the correct page to make a port forward entry,
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:
Enter the name of the program into the Application Name box. It doesn't really matter what you put into this box, but something that will remind you why these ports are being forwarded is be a good idea.
Select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding from the Protocol box.
Enter the same port number to be forwarded into both the LAN Port and the WAN Port boxes.
You need to enter the IP address that you are forwarding ports to in the LAN IP box. It's possible for this to be either the IP address of your computer or any other IP address on your network that you want ports forwarded to.
Click the Add button when you are done.
When you're finished, click Apply near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.
