How to open a port on the Sagem Fast 2504

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:

  • setup a static IP address on the device you plan on forwarding these ports to.
  • login to the Sagem Fast 2504 router web interface.
  • find the port forwarding page in the router's web interface.
  • setup a port forward for the online game or program of your choice.


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.

Step 1

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.

  • Or follow our Static IP Address guide to setup a static IP address.


TIP: Write this static IP address down, you need it later.

Step 2

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:


Sagem Fast 2504 address-bar-circled
192.168.0.1

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:

(Make sure the IP address box above has the static IP address you created in Step 1)

And that is it! You are done!
