Your TG3492LG-YL router helps to protect your network by blocking incoming internet connections. This is an important feature that helps you to control which applications have access to your network. Sometimes you want to allow network access to a specific application in order to play a game, connect a device, or use an app. The Arris TG3492LG-YL can unblock certain incoming connections through port forwarding or by opening a port. You can open ports in your TG3492LG-YL by assigning specific ports to an IP address. Forwarding these ports directs incoming data to a specific device or application.

You need to follow the steps below to open ports in your Arris TG3492LG-YL router:

  1. On the computer or device that you are forwarding ports to, you will need to set up a static IP address.
  2. Login to your Arris TG3492LG-YL router.
  3. In your Arris TG3492LG-YL router, navigate to the IP and Port Filtering section.
    • Click the Advanced Settings tab at the left of the screen.
    • Click on the Security menu.
    • Click on IP and Port Filtering.
  4. Create a IP and Port Filtering entry.

Step 1 - Setup A Static IP Address

In order to ensure that your ports remain open in your device even after it reboots, it is important to set up a static IP address in your device.

After setting up a static ip address on your devices you need to login to your router.

Step 2 - Login To Your Arris Router

The Arris TG3492LG-YL router uses a web interface to display router settings. In order to login to the Arris TG3492LG-YL router you need to use a web browser.

Open your favorite web browser. If you don't have a favorite or are not sure what this means, open up Chrome, Firefox, or Edge. If you are already in a browser window, go ahead and open up a new tab.

We have simplified this step for you with this link: Login to your TG3492LG-YL Router

Find the address bar in your browser window. This is usually found at the top of the page, like in the image below.

The Arris TG3492LG-YL router's default IP address is:

Once you have finished entering your router's IP address into the address bar, click the enter button on your keyboard. A box similar to the one below should appear.

This is the login page from your Arris router.

To login, enter the username and password for the Arris TG3492LG-YLs. Important Note: If you have changed them in the past, you need to enter in those values.

Once you enter your username and password, click the Next button.

Arris Usernames and Passwords

If the username and password did not work I recommend checking out our Default Arris Router Passwords page.

If, after trying the above list of passwords you still can't login you may need to consider a reset for your router. Learn how to do that by reading our How to Reset a Router guide. After resetting the Arris TG3492LG-YL router your username and password are reverted back to factory defaults.

Step 3 - Find The Port Forwarding Section

You should be on the home page of your Arris TG3492LG-YL router once you have successfully logged in. Find the IP and Port Filtering section of your router.

This is the home page from your Arris router.

You should now be on a page that says IP and Port Filtering.

Step 4 - Create A Port Forward Entry

Forwarding ports in your router creates a path that allows data to get through your network firewall, and this could lead to malicious traffic on your network. So make sure that you must forward a port before actually doing so. However, the risk is very low, so do not let this warning stop you from making this change if you need to.

Here are the ports to forward for Xbox Live:

  • TCP Ports: 3074
  • UDP Ports: 3074

If you are looking for the ports for a different application you can find it by either:

  1. To start creating an entry, click the Create a New Rule button.

  2. Put a check in the box marked Inbound.

  3. Put a check in the box named Enabled.

  4. For the Traffic Policy option, check Yes.

  5. In the Protocol dropdown box, select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding. Choose Both if your router has that option. Otherwise, choose either TCP or UDP as needed. If you need to forward a port for both TCP and UDP and your router does not have the Both option, then you need to create two entries.

  6. Make the All selection in the Source IP Address drop-down list.

  7. Choose Single from the Destination IP Address drop-down box.

  8. In the IPv6 Address box, enter the IP address that you want ports forwarded to. This may be the IP address of your computer or the IP address of another device on your network that you want to forward ports to.

  9. Go ahead and enter the port number into the Source Port Range Start and the Source Port Range End boxes, to forward a single port. To forward a range of ports, enter the lowest number of that range into the Source Port Range Start box and then enter the highest number of that range into the Source Port Range End box.

  10. In the Destination Port Range box, enter the same values that you entered into the Source Port Range box.

  11. To finish creating the entry, click on the button that says Add Rule.
