Where Can Instructions for Setting up Port Forwarding on a Router Be Found?

In order to set up port forwarding on a router, call the help line for the router's manufacturer or review the instructions available on the Web, such as at Port Forward, and look up the specific router. Before beginning, make sure to know what ports that are to be opened up in the router and remember that ports can only be opened to one device and that device needs to have a static Internet protocol (IP) address.

Each router will be accessed through a different IP based on manufacturer and each will require a different log in username and a different password. If the router is being leased from a internet service provider contact the network help line for the provider.
