Microsoft is a company name we all have heard of. It began in 1975 and has become an internationally known corporation. It is no surprise that they have become a leading producer of both wired and wireless routers. They have an easy design to follow, and tend to have very effective performance traits.
Microsoft routers are generally easy to set up, and their port forwarding section is no different. They are likely to have a list of slots where you can forward a port to internal devices. They have a very well designed port forwarding element that allows you to forward a range of ports for different functions.
If you cannot find your exact router in the list below, try following one of our Microsoft MN500 guides. That should get you an open port on pretty much any Microsoft router.
