Simple Topcom WBR 7001g Router Open Port Instructions

Topcom WBR-7001g 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 Topcom WBR 7001g router.
  3. Navigate to the port forwarding section.
    • Click the General Setup link.
    • Click the NAT link.
    • Click the Port Forwarding or the Virtual Server button to forward ports.
  4. Create a port forward entry.

While these steps might seem difficult at first, we will walk you through each step for your Topcom WBR-7001g 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.

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 Topcom WBR-7001g 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:


192.168.1.1

In the picture above the address bar has 192.168.1.1 in it. Just replace all of that with the IP address of your Topcom WBR-7001g 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: 192.168.1.1

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

Topcom WBR-7001g

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

  • The Default Topcom WBR 7001g Router Username is: admin
  • The Default Topcom WBR 7001g Router Password is: admin

Enter your username and password, and then click the Login button to log in to your Topcom WBR-7001g 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:

Forwarding a Port Range

Verify that you have the Enable Port Forwarding checkbox checked.

Enter the IP address that you want to forward these ports to in the Private IP box. You can enter either the IP address of your computer or the IP address of another computer or device on your network.

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

If you are forwarding a range of ports separated by a hyphen then enter the lowest number of that range into the Left Port Range box and the highest number of that range into the Right Port Range box. If you are only forwarding a single port number then enter that number into both the Left Port Range and the Right Port Range boxes.

Make up a name to put in the Comment box. The name does not have any effect on the functionality of the forward, it's simply there so you can know why it was created.

When you are all done click the Add button.

Forwarding a Single Port

Make sure that the Enable Virtual Server checkbox is checked.

Enter the IP address of the device that you want to forward ports to into the Private IP box. This can be either the IP address of your computer or the IP address of another device on your network.

Enter the port to forward into both the Private Port and the Public Port boxes.

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

Make up a name to put in the Comment box. The name does not have any effect on the functionality of the forward, it's simply there so you can know why it was created.

When you are done click the Add button.

When you're finished, click Apply near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.

Test if Your Ports are Open
