Linksys NR041-NetworkEverywhere routers include a very basic firewall that helps protect your home network form unwanted access from the internet. Since this firewall blocks incoming connections you may need open a port through it for certain games and applications. This process of opening a port is frequently called a port forward, since you are forwarding a port from the internet to your home network.

The basic process to open a port is:

  1. Setup a static IP address on either your computer or device that you want to forward a port to.
  2. Login to your Linksys Network Everywhere NR041 router.
  3. Navigate to the port forwarding section.
    • Click the Advanced Setup button.
    • Click the Forwarding button.
    • Click the View Port Range Forwarding button.
  4. Create a port forward entry.

While these steps might seem difficult at first, we will walk you through each step for your Linksys NR041-NetworkEverywhere router.


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.

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.

  • Recommended - Our free program will setup a static IP address for you.
    • → Download Network Utilities today!
  • Or follow our Static IP Address guides to setup a static IP address.

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

Step 2

Now we are going to login to your Linksys NR041-NetworkEverywhere router. Your router has a web interface, so you will login to it using your web browser.This can be either Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Edge. It usually does not matter which browser you choose to use.

Open up your web browser and find the address bar. It should look something like this:


In the picture above the address bar has 192.168.1.1 in it. Just replace all of that with the IP address of your Linksys NR041-NetworkEverywhere router.Your router's IP address can also be refered to as your computer's default gateway.

By default the IP address is set to: 192.168.1.1

After entering the IP address of your router you can simply press enter. If all goes well you will see the following screen:

You should see a box prompting you for your username and password.

  • The Default Linksys Network Everywhere NR041 Router Username is: blank
  • The Default Linksys Network Everywhere NR041 Router Password is: admin

Enter your username and password, and then click the Login button to log in to your Linksys NR041-NetworkEverywhere router.

Linksys Usernames and Passwords

If your username and password do not work then please visit our Default Linksys Router Passwords page.

If you still can't login to your router because you forgot your Linksys NR041-NetworkEverywhere router username and password, use our How to Reset a Router Password guide to set your Linksys NR041-NetworkEverywhere router back to its factory settings.

Step 3

Now we need to find the port forwarding section in your router. Here's how you do it. Starting from the first page in your router:

Click the Advanced Setup button near the right of the page.

Click the Forwarding button near the top of the page.

Click the View Port Range Forwarding button near the bottom of the page.

Step 4

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:

  • Browsing our List of Games
  • Check out our our List of Games by Genre
  • See our List of all Applications

Put a name for this forward in the Customized Applications box so that you can remember why you set this forward up. The name does not matter so pick something that has meaning to you.

If you are just forwarding a single port number then you can simply enter that same number into both the Left Ext. Port and the Right Ext. Port boxes. If you are forwarding a range of ports, usually separated by a hyphen, then you need to enter the lowest number of that range into the Left Ext. Port box and then enter highest number into the Right Ext. Port box.

In the Protocol TCP and Protocol UDP checkbox pick the protocol type.

Enter the IP address to forward these ports to into the 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.

Enable the Enable checkbox by putting a check in it.

After you are done click the Apply button.

When you're finished, click Apply near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.

Test if Your Ports are Open

Now that you have forwarded ports on the Linksys NR041-NetworkEverywhere you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.

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.

A Linksys Wi-Firouter

Linksys is an American brand (formerly a company) of data networking hardware products mainly sold to home users and small businesses. Linksys products include wired and wireless routers, Ethernet switches, VoIP equipment, wireless Internet video cameras, audio visual products and network storage systems.

Linksys was founded in 1988 by the couple Victor and Janie Tsao, both Taiwanese immigrants to the United States. The company was purchased by Cisco in 2003, and sold to Belkin in 2013.[2][3] Belkin was acquired by Foxconn in 2018.[4]

Linksys products are sold to consumers off-the-shelf from consumer electronics stores, Internet retailers, and big-box retail stores such as supermarkets. Significant competitors in the home and small business networking market segment include D-Link, TP-Link, and Netgear.

History[edit]

In 1988, the married couple Janie and Victor Tsao founded DEW International, later renamed Linksys, in the garage of their Irvine, California home. The founders were immigrants from Taiwan who held second jobs as consultants specializing in pairing American technology vendors with manufacturers in Taiwan.[5] The company's first products were printer sharers that connected multiple PCs to printers. From this, it expanded into Ethernet hubs, network cards, and cords. By 1994, it had grown to 55 employees with annual revenues of $6.5 million.[5]

The company received a major boost in 1995, when Microsoft released Windows 95 with built-in networking functions that expanded the market for its products. Linksys established its first U.S. retail channels with Fry's Electronics (1995) and Best Buy (1996).[6]In 1999, the company announced the first Fast Ethernet PCMCIA Card for notebook PCs. In 2000, it introduced the first 8-port router with SNMP and QoS, and in 2001 it shipped its millionth cable/DSL router.[6] By 2003, when the company was acquired by Cisco, it had 305 employees and revenues of more than $500 million.[5] That was also the sum paid by Cisco for the company.[7]

Cisco expanded the company's product line, acquiring VoIP maker Sipura Technology in 2005[8] and selling its products under Linksys Voice System or later Linksys Business Series brands.[9]In July 2008, Cisco acquired Seattle-based Pure Networks, a vendor of home networking-management software. Pure Networks had previously provided the tools and software infrastructure used to create the Linksys Easy Link Advisor.[10]

Cisco announced in January 2013 that it would sell its home networking division and Linksys to Belkin, giving Belkin 30% of the home router market. Belkin pledged to continue support and honor warranties for existing Linksys products.[11]

In 2018, Belkin was acquired by Foxconn, a Taiwanese multinational electronics firm, for $866 million.[12]
