Broadband: Technicolor TG 582 - Home Setup


Aim of this article:

This article describes the initial setup process for the Technicolor TG 582n router on a Broadband (ADSL) service. This will set the router up in NAT and DHCP mode.

If you bought your router from Zen it will typically configure itself in this mode automatically after being connected to your broadband line for around five minutes. If you bought your router from somewhere else, or it does not automatically configure itself, then follow this guide.

If you are setting the equipment up for the first time you should start here:

NOTE: This router automatically detects whether to connect using ADSL or ADSL2+; there is no option to override this.

Before starting:

  • Ensure you have your Broadband username and password. If you don't have these you can obtain them from the Customer Portal - as summarised in our Broadband Technical Details guide.
  • Check that the router is switched on and the Ethernet cable between your computer and router is plugged in correctly.

Configuring the router:

  1. Open an Internet browser. By default you will see the Technicolor welcome page. If the Technicolor welcome page does not appear automatically you can start the setup wizard by browsing to:
    http://192.168.1.254/

  7. In the box labelled "Zen Username" type in your Zen Broadband username as shown in your Technical Details email or in the Customer Portal (in the example below we've used zenxxxxxx@zen - you should replace this with your own username).
  8. In the box labelled "Zen Password" type in your Zen Broadband password as shown in your Technical Details email or the Customer Portal. This is case-sensitive so should be typed in exactly as it appears. You may find it easier to copy this from the email or Portal and paste it into the box.
  9. Set the "Connection Type" to Broadband.
  10. Click Next >

  11. Enable wireless. By default, wireless is enable and will use the default credentials as supplied with your router.
  12. Click Next >

  13. In the boxes labelled "Router Password" and "Confirm Router Password" type a password of your choice for the administrator username.
    You should keep a note of the password somewhere safe as we will not have a copy of your password. If you lose or forget the password you will need to factory reset the router and run through this setup wizard again.
  14. Click Next >
