good but. needs cleaning id say. for 1. most epople may or may not understand a gateway IP it reads it but easily noticed if you said it is usually à à 192.168.1.xxx . usually 254 or sometimes can be accessed without the 254 and just written as and its good to know how to log into your router and how / where to find your passwords for itthe IP to your router can also be located by looking at the sticker on the bottom or side of your router its usually there and a quick shortcut its fun and nice to try is by going to your adress bar and typing //home should take you to it. youre half right about some routers are defaulted to admin / password some are name / admin. some are pre set up and need to be located with the manual your isp or cable service gave you . but USUALLY for most systems it is also easily located by finding on the bottom of your router where you will see model type of your router serial number and other information . its not the model number or the serial that is your password its the other one that will let you log into your router. and for how to set up port forwarding its good but its not the same for everyone for example ive had 6 routers and none of which had a gaming tab. mine were usually located under advanced or one i had actually had a port forwarding section. an easy solution is to still look at the info on your router and remember that model number then navigate with your browser to portforward.com that can/will walk you through a process. also i think it should be noted that the default port to port forward that minecraaft is set to is 25565 so thats the port you want to use and the IP that your friends will use to connect to your server is your EXTERNAL ip which can be found if you type in whats my ip in google
