The Siemens Gigaset SE567 router has a basic firewall that helps protect your home network from unwanted Internet activity. The firewall does this by blocking incoming and outgoing activity that is not authorized. Some online gaming or programs will run much smoother if additional connections are authorized. In order to do this you need to create a port forward.
In this guide I will walk you through each of the steps in port forwarding for the Siemens Gigaset SE567 router. I will show you how to:
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!
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.
TIP: Write this new static IP address down. You need it a little later in this guide.
Once you have a static IP address for the device you are forwarding these ports to, it is time to login to the Siemens Gigaset SE567 router. To do this you need to open a web browser. It normally doesn't matter which browser you decide to use. I recommend using one you are familiar with such as Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, or Edge.
Open up your web browser and find the address bar. It should look something like this:
I have circled the address bar for you in the image above. Just replace what is in this bar with the router's IP address. If you need to find it, it can also be called the computer's default gateway.
The default IP address for your Siemens Gigaset SE567 router is: 192.168.1.254
After entering the IP address of your router you can simply press enter. If all goes well you will see the following screen:
If you are not directed to a login screen (whether it looks like the one above or not) you need to find out what the router's current IP address is. Follow the directions on this How To Find Your Router's IP Address page.
You should see a box prompting you for your username and password.
After you enter the username and password, click the OK button to login to the Siemens Gigaset SE567 router interface.
Are you having trouble logging into the Siemens Gigaset SE567 router? Here are a few troubleshooting ideas:
At this point in the guide you should be logged into the Siemens Gigaset SE567 router. You should see the following page:
On this page, click the Advanced Settings button at the top of the page.
This takes you to the page you see above. Select the option in the left sidebar labeled Internet.
Then choose the option of Address Translation.
Finally, under that pick Port Forwarding.
Congratulations, you found the port forwarding page!
To help you with this step, we need to know a little more about what you are port forwarding. Please fill in the next two boxes for our router simulator down below:
(Make sure this box contains the static IP address you created in the first step.)
Since every router is a little different in how you enter the port forwarding information, we have a router simulator to help you. After you have entered the needed information in the boxes above, our router simulator shows you exactly what needs to be entered in your router. Currently we are showing that you want ports forwarded for XBox Live. If this is correct, simply fill in the boxes in your router as you see them below:
When you are finished with a port forward entry, you need to click the Apply button to save it.
And that is it! You are done!
Now that you have forwarded ports on the Siemens Gigaset SE567 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.
