Broadband: Technicolor TG 582 - Configure Port Forwarding


Aim of this article:

This article provides a step-by-step guide to setting up port forwarding on a Technicolor TG 582 router.
Port forwarding may be required by online games or servers when the router is configured in the default (and recommended) NAT setup.  Your software supplier will be able to advise which ports to forward if it is necessary to do so.

Before starting:

  • Ensure you have the port numbers and protocol for the software for service you would like to forward.  Please refer to your software documentation or supplier for this information.
  • The IP address of the device you would like to forward the software or service to.

Configure Port Forwarding:

  1. Open an Internet browser and browse to:
    http://192.168.1.254/
  2. Click Home Network on the left menu.

    TG 582 - Home Screen
  3. Click Devices on the menu which appears under Home Network.

    TG 582 - Home Network Selected
  4. Click on the link related to the device you would like to forward traffic to (in this example Unknown-00-17-f2-c9-a6-58).
