    OK I was looking to port forward to speed up my Internet and downloads. So it's not possible?

    Hi all,

    Is it possible to port forward without a router and how do I do it? I tried typing in 192.168.1.1 and I get nothing. Even if I did go into the Interface I still don't know how to setup port forwarding and I don't have a router.

    Essentially port forwarding punches holes in a router's natural (NAT) firewall. No router means no need to port forward.
