Open ports for your Airtel connection (Port-mapping)

Airtel-LogoThis write up will explain to you how to speed up your Airtel Broadband connection / solve other problems regarding connection failures due to closed ports.

Although I use Airtel and a Beetel 220 BX modem as my basis for this write up, the same rules can be applied to others as well. So lets get started. First thing make sure your DSL modem is on. Fire up your browser. Type http://192.168.1.1 as the address with the following Username/Password –

Username : admin

Password : password

Note : These are case sensitive. Make sure all are typed in lowercase.

Click on Advanced Setup -> NAT in the page that loads. If you do not see these options try entering http://192.168.1.1/main.html as the address. Some routers/modems deliberately try to prevent users from accessing these options. On the NAT virtual servers page click the add button. Now add the port number that you wish to open up. You can even open up a range of ports using the add button. You should see something similar to the screenshot below. Click it to view full image

This technique can be used for any operating system / modem / service provider. It may vary slightly but the essential principle remains the same.

    I am using Airtel broadband post paid connection in Delhi NCR. I am paying a fixed amount monthly (699 + 12% tax). Will my monthly bill increases after changing the NAT setting? will it affect the plan i am using presently?

    kindly mail me or reply it here.

    thank you.

    You wanna go for port forwarding ??? ask the airtel guys. they’ll send their technical team. i did it like that. it’s not illegal.

    NAT will come guys .

    first put 192.168.1.1 in ur browser … let ur browser load the router page. when it’s done. type “192.168.1.1/main.html” and reload the page. you’ll get the NAT option 🙂

  15. Hey Synapse,
    I wanted to open the Port 80 for public i.e. host a website. But, adding port 80 to NAT virtual server this way didn’t work. The port 80 is still closed for public. Any more help?

  16. It’s really very complex in this active life to listen news on TV,
    therefore I only use world wide web for that purpose, and obtain the latest news.
