Motorola i600 Router Port Forwarding Instructions

Motorola i600 routers include a very basic firewall that helps protect your home network form unwanted access from the internet. Since this firewall blocks incoming connections you may need open a port through it for certain games and applications. This process of opening a port is frequently called a port forward, since you are forwarding a port from the internet to your home network.

The basic process to open a port is:

  1. Setup a static IP address on either your computer or device that you want to forward a port to.
  2. Login to your Motorola i600 router.
  3. Navigate to the port forwarding section.
    • Click the Advanced button.
    • Click on Port Forwarding.
    • Click the Custom Port Forwarding link.
  4. Create a port forward entry.

While these steps might seem difficult at first, we will walk you through each step for your Motorola i600 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.

When you use Network Utilities you get your port forwarded right now!

Step 1

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 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.

Step 2

Now we are going to login to your Motorola i600 router. Your router has a web interface, so you will login to it 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.

Open up your web browser and find the address bar. It should look something like this:


192.168.15.1

In the picture above the address bar has 192.168.15.1 in it. Just replace all of that with the IP address of your Motorola i600 router. Your router's IP address can also be refered to as your computer's default gateway.

By default the IP address is set to: 192.168.15.1

After entering the IP address of your router you can simply press enter. If all goes well you will see the following screen:

You should see a box prompting you for your username and password.

  • The Default Motorola i600 Router Username is: admin
  • The Default Motorola i600 Router Password is: motorola

Enter your username and password, and then click the Login button to log in to your Motorola i600 router.

Motorola Usernames and Passwords

If your username and password do not work then please visit our Default Motorola Router Passwords page.

If you still can't login to your router because you forgot your Motorola i600 router username and password, use our How to Reset a Router Password guide to set your Motorola i600 router back to its factory settings.

Step 3

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:

Step 4

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:

Enable the Enable checkbox by putting a check in it.

You need to name this entry in the Application box. The name does not make any difference in the forward; it's just there so that you can remember later why you setup this forward.

The protocol that you want to forward is selected from the Protocol box.

Put 192.168.15.1 into the Source IP Address and Source Netmask box.

Enter the IP address that you want to forward these ports to into the Destination IP Address box. Note that if you are forwarding ports so you can run a program on a device other than your computer then you can enter your device's IP address into that box instead.

The default for Destination Netmask is set to 192.168.15.1. Leave it like this.

If you are only forwarding a single port number then enter that number into both the Destination Port Start, Destination Port Map and the Destination Port End boxes. If you are forwarding a range of ports separated by a hyphen then enter the lowest number of that range into the Destination Port Start, Destination Port Map box and the highest number of that range into the Destination Port End box.

Click the Save button when you are done.

Use the LAN IP box to choose a device to forward ports to. This box contains a list of device names that are visible on your network.

Put a dot into the User radio button.

Select the applications you just created in the Available Rules list, then click the Add > button to move them to the Applied Rules box.

When you are finished, click the Save button.

Your ports should now be open. It is time to test them.

Test if Your Ports are Open

Now that you have forwarded ports on the Motorola i600 you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.

To test if your port has been properly forwarded, you can use our Network Utilities tool, which includes a free Open Port Checker. Our Open Port Check tool is the only online port checking tool with Guaranteed Results.
