All the **ZTE ZXV10 W300 ** routers have a basic firewall installed that helps protect your home network from unwanted Internet access. This firewall works by blocking all incoming and outgoing connections unless told differently. Some online gaming or programs need some additional connections (ports) opened for a better experience. To do that you need to create a port forward that forwards the port directly to a specific device on your home network.

In this guide we will be showing you how to create a port forward on the **ZTE ZXV10 W300 ** router. These steps are:

  1. Setting up a Static IP address for the exact device you are forwarding these ports to.
  2. Logging into the **ZTE ZXV10 W300 ** router.
  3. Finding the port forwarding section of the router.
  4. Setting up a port forward entry.

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.

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.

Use a VPN Instead

Have you considered using a VPN instead of forwarding a port? For most users, a VPN is a much simpler and more secure choice than forwarding a port.

NordVPN birthday deal!

We use and recommend NordVPN because not only is it the fastest VPN, it includes a new feature called Meshnet that makes forwarding a port no longer necessary for most applications. With NordVPN Meshnet, you can connect to your devices from anywhere in the world, completely secure, over a highly encrypted VPN tunnel.

Every time you click on one of our affiliate links, such as NordVPN, we get a little kickback for introducing you to the service. Think of us as your VPN wingman.

TIP: Write this Static IP address down, you need it a little later in Step 4.

Step 2

When you logging into the **ZTE ZXV10 W300 ** router you need to open up a web browser. A web browser includes Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Edge. We recommend picking one that is familiar to you, it shouldn't matter which browser you decide to use for logging into your ZTE ZXV10 W300 router.

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.

The default ZTE ZXV10 W300 IP Address is: Once you have entered the correct IP address, click the Enter key and you should see a box or page pop up asking for authentication, similar to this:

If you do not see a box ask for a username and/or password you did not enter the correct IP address. To find out what the correct 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/or password.

Enter your username and password, and then click the OK button to login to your ZTE ZXV10 W300 router.

Having Trouble?

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

  1. Most likely the username and password are incorrect. If you have a slightly different firmware version then the username and password could be different. Try other ZTE username/password combinations. Here is our list of Default ZTE Router Passwords.
  2. If that did not work, the password was probably changed in the past for security reasons. This is a good idea and highly recommended when setting up a wireless home network, however problems arise when you forget what you changed it to. Our Router Password Cracker will help you with this. Go ahead and give it a try, it makes owning a router a lot easier.
  3. Finally if all else fails you may need to consider a factory reset for your **ZTE ZXV10 W300 ** router. This is not recommended unless you have exhausted all other troubleshooting ideas. A factory reset erases all your previous changes. A full reconfiguration is required after a factory reset. To learn more about resetting a router, read this How to Reset a Router page.

Step 3

Step three is finding the port forwarding section of the router. To do that you need to start on the first page of the device interface.

Choose an empty rule from the Rule Index dropdown box.

Make up a name to put in the Application 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.

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

If you are forwarding a range of ports, enter the lowest number of the range into the Start Port Number and Start Port Number (Local) boxes. Then enter the highest number of the range into the End Port Number and End Port Number (Local) boxes. If you are forwarding a single port, enter that port number into the Start Port Number, End Port Number, Start Port Number (Local) and End Port Number (Local) boxes.

Enter the IP address to forward these ports to into the Local IP Address box. If you are forwarding ports so you can run a program on a device other than your computer then you can enter your device's IP address into that box.

Click the Save button when you are done.

When you are finished, click the SAVE button to apply these changes to your router.

Your ports should now be open. It is time to test them.

Test if Your Ports are Open

After you have finished forwarding ports on the ZTE ZXV10 W300 you should test to see if they forwarded properly.

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.
