Xavi 7868r 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:
- Setup a static IP address on either your computer or device that you want to forward a port to.
- Login to your Xavi 7868r router.
- Navigate to the port forwarding section.
- Click the Configuration link.
- Click on Security.
- Click the Advanced NAT Configuration link.
- Click the Add Reserved Mapping link.
- Create a port forward entry.
While these steps might seem difficult at first, we will walk you through each step for your Xavi 7868r router.
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 Static IP Setter will set up a static IP address for you.
- Another way to get a permanent IP address is to set up a DHCP reservation.
- Or, manually create a static ip address with our Static IP Guides.
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.
Now we are going to login to your Xavi 7868r 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:
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.

If you still can't login to your router because you forgot your Xavi 7868r router username and password, use our How to Reset a Router Password guide to set your Xavi 7868r router back to its factory settings.
Now we need to find the port forwarding section in your router. Here's how you do it. Starting from the first page in your router:
Click the Configuration link near the left of the page.
You should now see a new menu. In this new menu, click Security.
Click the Advanced NAT Configuration link near the center of the page.
Click the Add Reserved Mapping link near the center of the page.
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:
Try putting 192.168.1.1 in the Global box. 192.168.1.1 is a special number that stands for any assigned IP address. When you enter that number it means any external IP address that has been assigned to your router will work. If that does not work you will have to enter your external IP address manually, which can be a problem because your external IP address may change often. If it changes then those ports will not be forwarded properly anymore.
Enter the IP address that you want to forward these ports to in the Internal box. You can enter either the IP address of your computer or the IP address of another computer or device on your network.
From the Transport box select the protocol for the ports that you want to forward.
If you are forwarding a range of ports then you need to enter the lowest number of the range into the External Port Range Start and Internal Port Range Start boxes and the highest number of the range into the External Port Range End and Internal Port Range End boxes. If you are only forwarding a single port then you can enter that same port number into the External Port Range Start, External Port Range End, Internal Port Range Start and Internal Port Range End boxes.
When you are finished, click the Add Reserved Mapping button.
When you're finished, click Save config near the left of the screen to save your changes.
