This Telrad Xplornet CPE7000 router uses a firewall to help protect your home network from unwanted Internet access. Your firewall blocks all connections, both in and out unless you have told the firewall the connections are okay. In order to open connections for a game or program you need to create a port forward.

In this guide we will be walking you through each of the following steps:

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.

Get Started Now!

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.

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.

Use a VPN Instead

Have you considered using a VPN instead of forwarding a port? For most users, a VPN is a much simpler and more secure choice than forwarding a port.

NordVPN is the fastest VPN!

We use and recommend NordVPN because not only is it the fastest VPN, it includes a new feature called Meshnet that makes forwarding a port no longer necessary for most applications. With NordVPN Meshnet, you can connect to your devices from anywhere in the world, completely secure, over a highly encrypted VPN tunnel.

Every time you click on one of our affiliate links, such as NordVPN, we get a little kickback for introducing you to the service. Think of us as your VPN wingman.

Step 2

After you have created the Static IP address on the exact device you are port forwarding these ports to, it is time to login to the Telrad Xplornet CPE7000. Your router, along with most others, use a web interface which means you need to open the router settings using a web browser. It does not matter which browser you decide to use, I recommend using one you are familiar with. Some of the more common browsers are Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Firefox.

Open up the web browser you picked and find the address bar. The address bar should be at the top of the page like this:

Above is an example of what a web browser address bar looks like. Find the address bar in your router and type in your router's IP address.

The default Telrad CPE7000 IP Address is:

p>Once you have entered the router's IP address into the address bar, click the Enter key on your keyboard. If you entered the correct IP address you are given a login window like this:

All you need to do here is enter the router's username and password and press the Login button.

NOTE: The router username and password are NOT the same thing as the WiFi username(SSID) and password.

Username & Password Trouble?

Are you having trouble logging in? Don't worry, there are a few things you can try:

  • Try other Telrad usernames and passwords. If you have a different firmware version then you may also have a different username and password. Here is our list of Default Telrad Router Passwords.
  • If that did not work, it is because you changed the username and/or password. You are probably the best person to try and guess what you changed the password to. Go ahead and try to figure out what you changed it to. Not working? Use our Find Password App to help you out. This application will guess thousands of different combinations for you and let you know when it has figured it out. Learn more about this handy application on our Router Password Cracker page.
  • Finally, if that did not work, it might be time to consider a factory reset. This should be a LAST RESORT. Do not do this unless you have exhausted your other troubleshooting options. A factory reset is going to erase all your personal settings in the past. If you need to perform a factory reset check out this How to Reset a Router guide for the basics of resetting a router.

Step 3

We can now navigate to the port forwarding section of the Telrad Xplornet CPE7000 router. To help you we will begin on the Mobile Network Status page.

Use the Protocol dropdown box to select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding.

If you are forwarding a range of ports, enter the lowest number of the range into the WAN Port Begin and LAN Port Begin boxes. Then enter the highest number of the range into the WAN Port End and LAN Port End boxes. If you are forwarding a single port, enter that port number into the WAN Port Begin, WAN Port End, LAN Port Begin and LAN Port End boxes.

Enter the IP address that you are forwarding ports to in the LAN IP box. This is either the IP address of a computer or the IP address of another device on your network.

In the Enable checkbox put a checkmark.

When you are finished, make sure to click the Apply button to save your changes.

Are Your Ports Forwarded?

You have done everything we recommended to open your ports but how do you really know the ports opened correctly. We recommend using our Open Port Checker. It is a great way to check and see if you opened the port or not. There are a lot of port checkers on the Internet but ours is guaranteed to be accurate.
