The Tenda W311R+ router includes a basic firewall that helps protect your local network from all unwanted Internet access. A firewall does this by blocking all incoming and outgoing traffic from the Internet unless the router allows it. The only way your router will allow more traffic through the firewall is if you create a port forward rule allowing traffic to flow through the port or ports you specified to a particular computer on your home network.

In this guide we will cover all the steps in order to get your ports forwarded on the Tenda W311R+ router. We will show you exactly 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.

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.

After setting up a static ip address on your devices you need to login to your router.

TIP: It's a good idea to write this static IP address down. You will need it again in Step 4.

Step 2

In order to login to the Tenda W311R+ router you need to open a web browser because your router uses a web interface. The web browser can be Chrome, Internet Explorer, Edge, or Firefox. It should not matter which browser you decide to use.

After you open the web browser, find the address bar. This is normally 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 Tenda W311R+ IP Address is: 192.168.0.1 Once you have entered the router's IP address into the address bar, simply press Enter.

If the correct IP address was used you will see a login screen screen similar to this:

If you are not shown the above screen, something went wrong. At this point you need to find out what the router's IP address was changed to. In order to do this follow the instructions on our How To Find Your Router's IP Address page.

You should see a box prompting you for the router's username and password.

Enter your username and password, and then click the OK or Login button to gain to your Tenda W311R+ router web interface.

Having Trouble?

This is a very common place to get stuck. Here are a few things you can try:

  • We first recommend trying other Tenda username/password combinations. It is possible you have a different version than this. Different versions sometimes have different passwords. Here is our list of Default Tenda Router Passwords
  • The most common reason a password won't work is because you have changed it in the past. You can do a couple things here: First, you can try guessing what you changed it to. Second you can use our Router Password Cracker to do the guessing for you. This handy tool really does make owning a router a lot easier.
  • The last thing you can try is a factory reset. Do not attempt a factory reset unless you have exhausted all your other troubleshooting options. To learn the basics of a reset read this How to Reset a Router page.

Step 3

It is now time to find the port forwarding section of the Tenda W311R+ router. To help you do this we begin on the Network Status page.

Click the Virtual Server option on the left side of the page. Then under that, pick the new option of Port Range Forwarding.

You are now on the correct page to make a port forward entry.

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:

If you are just forwarding a single port number then you can simply enter that same number into both the Start Port and the End Port boxes. If you are forwarding a range of ports, usually separated by a hyphen, then you need to enter the lowest number of that range into the Start Port box and then enter highest number into the End Port box.

You need to enter the IP address that you are forwarding ports to in the To IP Address 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.

Select the required protocol for these ports from the Protocol dropdown box.

Enable the Enable checkbox by putting a check in it.

When you are finished, click the Apply button at the bottom of the page.

Don't Forget to Test Your Ports

After you have finished all of the above steps, you need to see if the Tenda W311R+ router forwarded them without any problems. To do this we recommend using our Network Utilities tool, which includes a free Open Port Checker. Our port checker uses a local application to listen for the server trying to connect and then positively verifies that your ports are forwarded.
