Your UTStarcom UT-300R router has a firewall in place that helps protect it from unwanted Internet activity. The firewall does this by blocking all incoming and outgoing connections that have not been approved. Some online games and applications will run much smoother if you approve additional connections for that game or app. To do this you need to create what is called a port forward.
In this guide I will show you exactly how to port forward on the UTStarcom UT-300R router. I will walk you through 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.
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.
I recommend writing this static IP address down, you need it a little later in this guide.
It is now time to login to the UTStarcom UT-300R router. Your router uses a web interface, meaning you need to use your web browser to open the router settings. It typically doesn't matter which browser you decide to use to open. I recommend picking the web browser you are the most familiar with such as Internet Explorer, Chrome, Edge, or Firefox.
Open up your web browser and find the address bar. It should look something like this:
In the image above I have circled the address bar and entered the router's IP address in it. Just replace what is in the address bar with the router's IP address. Sometimes the router's IP address is called the router's GUI address or the computer's default gateway.
The UTStarcom UT-300R router has a default IP address of: 192.168.1.1
Simply enter the router's IP address in the address bar and click the Enter key. If the correct IP address was used you see a screen or box similar to the one below:
If you do not see a screen or box prompting you for a username and password, then the IP address was entered incorrectly or it has been changed. To find out what the current router 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.
Enter your username and password, and then click the OK button to log in to your UTStarcom UT-300R router.
If the above username and password did not work there are several things that can be done:
Now we need to find the port forwarding section in your router. Here's how you do it. Starting from the Home page in your router:
First, click the Services tab at the top of the page.
This should take you to the NAT page like the one above. Open the NAT Options drop down menu and choose the NAT Rule Entry option.
Now select the Add option near the bottom of the page.
This is the correct page to be on in order to port forward your router.
Now we are ready to enter some data in your router. In order to show you exactly how to configure your router we need you to answer 2 questions:
(Make sure the IP address box above contains the static IP address you created in Step 1.)
Now we can move on to our router simulator. It will show you exactly what information to enter in your router based on the choices you make above. Right now we are showing the ports for XBox Live. If this is correct, simply fill in the boxes in your router as you see them here.
Remember after each entry you need to click the Submit button then the here button for another port forward entry.
When you are done entering port forwards press the Close button after you click submit.
Then choose the IP Filter link at the top of the page.
You should now see a page like the one above. Select Low from the Security Level drop down menu.
Now select Accept in the Public Default Action, the Private Default Action and the DMZ Default Action drop down boxes.
Next, click Submit at the bottom of the page.
Then pick the Admin tab at the top of the page.
This gives you a new set of options in the sub-menu. Pick the Commit & Reboot option.
On this new page click the Commit button near the bottom of the page.
Then select the Reboot button also found at the bottom of the page.
That's it, you did it.
Now that you have forwarded ports on the UTStarcom UT-300R 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.
Port forwarding should be easy. If you are having problems with your port forward, use our Port Forwarding Software. Our software troubleshoots, diagnoses, and fixes any port forwarding issues you might be having. Our software makes port forwarding a router easy!
