In this post I will be going over the port forward configuration setup for Netgear routers
1.) Open a web browser like Internet Explorer or Firefox. Enter the internal IP address of your router in the address bar of your browser. By default the IP address should be set to 192.168.0.1
2.) 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.
3.) Click the Port Forwarding link near the left of the page.
4.) Click the Add Custom Service button near the bottom of the page.
5.) Type in the service name. Note this can be set to anything you like. Service name is for your reference.Now enter the port into the starting and ending port slots. Last enter the server ip address.
6.) Save the settings.
7.) Once you have saved the settings go to http://videos.cctvcamerapros.com/check-open-port-forwarding-tool and type in the port number that you have forwarded. Make sure it is open. If the port is closed proceed to the next step.
8.) If you have DSL for you internet service you will need to call your provider and have them bridge the modem to the router. This is a standard process.
