Simple Instructions to Help Setup a Port Forward on the Hitron Technologies CGNVM-3582 Router
Your Hitron Technologies CGNVM-3582 router protects your home network by limiting incoming connections from the internet. Sometimes it is necessary to unblock some of those connections like when you want to create a direct connection for gaming, use a specific application, or set up a new device on your network. This process is called forwarding or opening a port. In your Hitron Technologies CGNVM-3582 router you many need to open a port which means assigning a port number or set of port numbers to a specific IP address. This routes the incoming data to the correct device on your network.
You need to follow the steps below to open ports in your Hitron Technologies CGNVM-3582 router:
- Set up a static IP address on the computer or device that you are forwarding ports to.
- Go ahead and log in to your Hitron Technologies CGNVM-3582 router.
- Navigate to the Port Forwarding section in your Hitron Technologies CGNVM-3582 router.
- Click on the Basic tab at the top of the screen.
- Click on the Port Forwarding tab.
- Go ahead and create a Port Forwarding entry.

Setup A Static IP Address
Set up a static IP address in the device that you are forwarding a port to. This is an important step that keeps your ports open even after a reboot, power outage, or other type of device or router disconnect.

Or follow our Static IP Address guides to setup a static IP address.
After setting up a static ip address on your devices you need to login to your router.
Login To Your Hitron Technologies Router
In order to login to the Hitron Technologies CGNVM-3582 router you need to use a web browser. The Hitron Technologies CGNVM-3582 router uses what is called a web interface where you can access and control router settings.
Go ahead and open up your favorite web browser. If you don't have a favorite or are not sure what this means, open up Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer.
If this step is confusing, we have simplified it for you with this link: Login to your CGNVM-3582 Router
Find the address bar once you have opened up a web browser. This is usually located at the top of the page, like in the image below.
You should see 192.168.0.1 in the address bar of the screenshot shown above. This is your router's IP address (sometimes listed as the default gateway.)
The Hitron Technologies CGNVM-3582 router's default IP address is: 192.168.0.1
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.
Enter the username and password for your Hitron Technologies CGNVM-3582 router. Note: If you have changed these numbers in the past, you will need to enter in the those values.
- The default Hitron Technologies CGNVM-3582 Router Username is: cusadmin
- The default Hitron Technologies CGNVM-3582 Router Password is: password
Once you have entered your username and password, remember to click the Login button to login to your Hitron Technologies CGNVM-3582 router.
Hitron Technologies Usernames and Passwords
If the username and password did not work I recommend checking out our Default Hitron Technologies 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 Hitron Technologies CGNVM-3582 router your username and password are reverted back to factory defaults.
Find the Port Forwarding Section
After a successful login to the Hitron Technologies CGNVM-3582 router you should be on the home page of your router. Now you need to find the Port Forwarding section.
- Find the Basic tab at the top of the screen and click on it.
- Click the Port Forwarding tab.
You should now be on a page called Port Forwarding.
Create A Port Forward
Opening a port to a specific device may solve problems that you are having on your network. Make sure that it is necessary though, before opening a port, because you are effectively creating a pinhole in the firewall portion of your router that could lead to malicious traffic on your network. The risk is exceedingly low though, so don't let this warning stop you from making this change if you need it.
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:
Create a name for this forward and type it into the Application Name box. Since the name does not have an effect on the functionality of the forward, choose a name that will help you remember why the forward was created.
Go ahead and enter the port number into the left Public Port and the right Public Port boxes, to forward a single port. To forward a range of ports, enter the lowest number of that range into the left Public Port box and then enter the highest number of that range into the right Public Port box.
Take the values that you entered in the Public Port boxes and put the exact same numbers in the Private Port boxes.
Use the Protocol dropdown box to select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding. If your router has the option of Both then choose that. Otherwise select either TCP or UDP as needed. If you need to forward a port for both TCP and UDP and your router does not have Both then you have to create two entries.
You need to enter the IP address that you are forwarding ports to into the Local IP Address box. It's possible for this to be either the IP address of your computer or any other IP address on your network that you want ports forwarded to.
Make sure that Remote IP Address is set to Any.
Make the Enabled selection in the Status drop down list.
When you are completely finished, click the Apply button at the bottom of the page to apply these changes.
Test Your Open Ports
Finally, test your network to see if you have forwarded ports in the Hitron Technologies CGNVM-3582 router correctly. To do this you can use Network Utilities, which includes a free Open Port Checker tool. Open Port Checker is the only online port-checking tool that has Guaranteed Results.
