The Default Port Forwarding Guide for the Prolink Hurricane9200
To setup port forwarding on this router your computer needs to have a static ip address.
Try our free PF Setup Static IP Address Program which will setup a static ip address for your computer.
Or you can take a look at our Static IP Address guide to setup a static ip address. When you are finished setting up a static ip address, please come back to this page and enter the ip address you setup in the Static IP Address box below.
Do not skip this step!
Open a web browser like Internet Explorer or Firefox. Enter the internal IP address of your router in the address bar of your browser. If you do not know your routers internal IP address please read our How To Find Your Routers IP Address guide.
In the picture above the address bar has http://www.google.com in it. Just replace all of that with the internal IP address of your router. By default the IP address should be set to 192.168.1.1.
You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now. By default the username is admin, and the password is password. Click the Ok button to log in to your router.
Click the Firewall button near the top of the page.
You should now see a new menu. In this new menu, click Port Forwarding.
Use the Protocol drop down box to select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding.
Enter the name of the program into the Comment box. It doesn’t really matter what you put into this box, but something that will remind you why these ports are being forwarded would be a good idea.
Put a checkmark in the Enable checkbox.
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 your computer, you should enter your computer’s ip address into that box.
If you are forwarding a single port, enter that port number into both of the Local Port and both of the Public Port boxes. If you are forwarding a range of ports, enter the lowest number of that range into the left hand Local Port and Public Port boxes. Then enter the highest number of that range into the right hand Local Port and Public Port boxes.
When you are finished, click the Add button.
And that is it! You are done!
To test if your port has been properly forwarded, you can use our Port Checker tool.
