Sagem Fast 2504 routers include a very basic firewall that helps protect your home network from unwanted access from the Internet. Since the firewall blocks incoming connections you may need to open a port through it for certain games and applications. This process of opening a port is frequently called a port forward, since you are forwarding a port from the Internet to your home network.
In this guide we will walk you through each of the steps involved in creating a port forward for the Sagem Fast 2504 router. These steps include how to:
We think that forwarding a port should be easy. That's why we created Network Utilities. Our software does everything that you need to forward a port.
When you use Network Utilities you get your port forwarded right now!
It is important to setup a static ip address in the device that you are forwarding a port to. This ensures that your ports will remain open even after your device reboots.
TIP: Write this static IP address down, you need it later.
Now we are going to login to your Sagem Fast 2504 router. Your router has a web interface, so you will login to it using your web browser. This can be either Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Edge. It usually does not matter which browser you decide to use.
Open up your web browser and find the address bar. It should look something like this:
In the picture above the address bar has 192.168.0.1 in it. Just replace all of that with the IP address of your Sagem Fast 2504 router. Your router's IP address can also be referred to as your computer's default gateway.
By default the Sagem Fast 2504 IP address is set to: 192.168.0.1
After entering the IP address of the router simply press Enter. If all goes well you will see the following screen:
You should see a box prompting you for your username and password.
Enter your username and password, and then click the OK button to log in to your Sagem Fast 2504 router.
This is a common place to get stuck. If you find yourself here, there are a few things you can try:
If your username and password do not work then please visit our Default Sagem Router Passwords page.
Use our Find Password App to help guess what the password was changed to.
If you still can't login, use our How to Reset a Router Password guide to set your Sagem Fast 2504 router back to its factory settings.
Now we need to find the port forwarding section in your router. Here's how you do it. Starting from the Router Status page of your router:
On this page, click the Security option at the top of the page.
You are now on the correct page to begin a port forward.
Now we are ready to enter some data in your router. In order to show you exactly how to configure your router we need you to answer 2 questions:
(Make sure the IP address box above has the static IP address you created in Step 1)
Our router simulator shows you exactly what data to enter in your router based on your choices above. We are currently showing the ports for XBox Live. You should fill out the boxes in the router as you see them here:
And that is it! You are done!
Now that you have forwarded ports on the Sagem Fast 2504 you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.
To test if your port has been properly forwarded, you can use our Network Utilities tool, which includes a free Open Port Checker. Our Open Port Check tool is the only online port checking tool with Guaranteed Results.
