A ZTE ZXHN H267A router protects your home network by blocking unwanted incoming internet connections and acting as a basic firewall. Sometimes you need to open a port in your router in order to get a good connection for a game or to use a specific device on your network. The ZXHN H267A lets you choose the applications that are allowed to connect through an open port. By opening a port in your router you allow a specific application or game to send data from the internet to your home network.

The following steps will show you how to open ports on the ZTE ZXHN H267A router:

  1. On the computer or device that you are forwarding ports to, you will need to set up a static IP address.
  2. Login to your ZTE ZXHN H267A router.
  3. Find the Port Forwarding section in your ZTE ZXHN H267A router.
    • Find the Internet tab at the top of the screen and click on it.

Setup A Static IP Address

In order to ensure that your ports remain open in your device even after it reboots, it is important to set up a static IP address in your device.

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

Login To Your ZTE Router

Log in to your ZTE ZXHN H267A router. To log in you will need to use a web browser since the ZTE ZXHN H267A uses a web interface to access router configurations.

Open up whichever internet browser that you are comfortable with. If you are not sure which one to use, then go ahead and open Chrome, Firefox, or Edge.

Once you have opened a web browser, find the address bar which is usually located at the top of the screen. The image below shows an example of this.

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

The ZTE ZXHN H267A router's default IP address is:

Once you have finished entering your router's IP address into the address bar, click the enter button on your keyboard. A box similar to the one below should appear.

This is the login page from your ZTE router.

Enter the username and password for the ZTE ZXHN H267A in the corresponding boxes. Important Note: If you have changed them in the past, you need to enter in those values.

To log in to your ZTE ZXHN H267A router, enter your username and password, and then click the Login button.

ZTE Usernames and Passwords

If the username or password did not work check out our Default ZTE Router Passwords page.

If you are unable to log in even after trying the above list of passwords you may need to consider a reset for your router. Our guide How to Reset a Router can help you with that. After resetting the ZTE ZXHN H267A router your username and password will be reverted back to factory defaults.

Find the Port Forwarding Section

You should be on the home page of your ZTE ZXHN H267A router once you have successfully logged in. Find the Port Forwarding section of your router.

This is the status page from your ZTE router.

You should now be on a page that says Port Forwarding.

Create A Port Forward

Forwarding ports in your router creates a path that allows data to get through your network firewall, and this could lead to malicious traffic on your network. So make sure that you must forward a port before actually doing so. However, the risk is very low, so do not let this warning stop you from making this change if you need to.

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:

  1. Click the line called Create New Item.

  2. Make up a name to put in the Name 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.

  3. In the Protocol dropdown box, select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding. Choose Both if your router has that option. Otherwise, choose either TCP or UDP as needed. If you need to forward a port for both TCP and UDP and your router does not have the Both option, then you need to create two entries.

  4. Unless you know what it's for and have a reason to use it, just go ahead and leave WAN Host IP Address blank.

  5. Find the LAN Host box and enter the IP address that you want ports forwarded to. This can be either the IP address of your computer or any other IP address for devices on your network that you want to forward ports for.

  6. If you are forwarding a single port, enter that port number into the left WAN Port and the right WAN Port boxes. If you are forwarding a range of ports, enter the lowest number of that range into the left WAN Port box. Then enter the highest number of that range into the right WAN Port box.

  7. Take the same values that you entered into the WAN Port boxes, and enter them into the LAN Port boxes.

  8. Click the Apply button at the bottom of the page to apply these changes when you are completely finished.
