Port Forwarding on the Binatone DT 845W Router

A lot of people have asked for this, since there are not many tutorials on port forwarding on your home router. In fact, I did not find even one useful tut on port forwarding on a Binatone router, except for forwarding on the ADSL2000 and ADSL2001 series. Here I have explained how to port forward on the Binatone 845W ADSL2+ Wireless Router. I hope this is of use to people, owing to the fact that many other home routers use the same, or similar settings:

  1. Type your Internet Protocol address in your favourite web browser’s (mine is Mozilla Firefox) URL bar and press the return key. This should open up your router’s log-in page. Usually, typing 192.168.1.1 (or a similar address) will suffice, but you may also type in your public Internet Protocol address for this purpose. If you want to find out what your public internet protocol address is, open Google and search for my ip or what is my ip. This should make Google give you your internet protocol address above the search results.
  2. When you have opened your router’s page, type your user name and password to log-in to your router. Usually, the user name is admin, and by default, the password is password. The user name will be admin for you in most cases, while if you have changed the password, well, put in whatever password you set it to. If you don’t remember your router’s password, you might want to reset your router by sticking a pin in the hole which houses the reset button. Press it for about 10 seconds till the router begins to restart. Now, log in to your router’s page, and enter the default log-in details, admin for user name, and password for password. Remember, once you are in, change your password to something else instead of password. Write down your new password in case you forget it.
  3. Once in, click on the Access Management tab, for DT 845W or search for the ACL option (Access Control Listing) on other routers. For 845W, now click on the ACL option below the Access Management tab. Make sure that Access Control Listing is set to enabled. It should be enabled by default. Now, in the Access Control Editing option, set the ACL Rule Index to 3. You might want to set it t another number; though I said 3 because by default Rule 1 and Rule 2 are already defined. You should check the Access Control Listing table below first. Suppose the number of entries in that table is n, set the ACL Rule Index to n+1.
  4. Now, for the option Active yes/no, set it to YES by choosing the appropriate radio button.
  5. Leave the Secure IP Address section blank unless you know what you are doing. If you want to allow only a specific range of internet protocol addresses, you can set the range there. The default entry for this option is 0.0.0.0 ~ 0.0.0.0, which means “All Internet Protocol Addresses”. If you are setting up a game server or a web server for which you want to forward ports, it is better to not change this setting and let the default setting remain.
  6. Now, for the APPLICATION drop-down menu, you must select the application you wish to port forward for. Though I don’t think you can enter custom ports through the ACL page, you might as well snoop around and find a similar option.
  7. Set the Interface option to LAN or WAN or BOTH as per your requirements, though you needn’t do so for LAN, because by default, the first ACL rule opens up every web application for LAN.
  8. Now press Save. The first step of our operation is completed.
  9. Now click on the Advanced Setup tab and go to NAT. For other routers, search for the Network Address Translation option or the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) option. For 845W users, after clicking on NAT, click on DMZ. Set it to enabled and enter the relevant Internet Protocol Address over there. To find out the address you need, open the command line or terminal, and enter ipconfig for Windows or ifconfig for most Linux distributions and press the return key. You should have an address in front of you of the type 192.168.1.x or 192.168.x.y, I believe. Note down this address or simply copy-paste it to the text box in the DMZ option.
  10. Press Save and close the router configuration page. You are now good to go.

This tutorial teaches you how to open up your ports for traffic on port 80, 20, 21, Telnet, and IRC ports among others. Through this tutorial, you might also select ALL from the Applications option and open up either all of the above ports or all of your ports, but I strongly recommend to refrain from doing so. Do not mess up with these fragile security settings unless you know what you are doing.

I will soon put up another tutorial to teach you how to port forward on custom ports on home routers such as the DT 845W ADSL2+ Wireless Router! 🙂

    1. I wouldn’t know your whole situation, plus it is much easier to get in touch with your ISP – they will surely send someone to assist you with this task. They employ people specifically for these things. Airtel does at least.

    1. Hello.
      Your PPPoE/PPPoA settings will be available with your Internet Service Provider. For obtaining this information, please call them and ask for assistance. They will ask for your subscription/account/consumer number and then will provide you with the correct user ID and password.

  4. Hi, can I ask you a question, please? I have a Beam Fiber Ethernet connection for which I don’t need any modem or router. I have a Binatone D845W with me, I just want to use the wifi part of the set. Is it possible to use that in such a way where only the router is utilized and modem is not? And if possible, could you please explain how? Thanks in advance.

    1. ok, Try this one. Go to Advanced setup. Then click NAT. There will a option for Virtual Server. Click it. Chose any rule index except 1. Then fill in the rest of the details. Hope this helps…

  7. As said in the above guide lines i did, now i need to forward port 81, which is not mentioned here. Please let me know where should i update port 81 after doing the above steps..

    1. This particular router doesn’t let to forward a custom, numbered port. You can just forward them all (which isn’t so safe) or the respective service.

  11. Hi, Thanks for the great tutorial.
    I have one problem, I want to to forward to a particular ip of a device. And whenever that device(to which it has to be ported) is connected to the router it changes its ip and i have to change the ip in my routers settings, I heard that we can set that which ip number will be given to a particular mac address in the routers settings. In this way the device will always get the same ip every time. But i am not sure how to do this in Binatone DT 845W Router.
    Please Help, Thanks !

  12. This doesn’t work on 850w, instead you have to use Virtual Server option for simple port 80 forwarding.
