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

Login To Your Sagemcom Router

In order to login to the Sagemcom Fast 5655v2AC router you need to use a web browser. The Sagemcom Fast 5655v2AC 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 Fast 5655v2AC 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.


192.168.1.1

In the screenshot above you should see an address bar with the address of 192.168.1.1 in it. This is your router's IP address, sometimes called the computer's default gateway.

The Sagemcom Fast 5655v2AC router's default IP address is: 192.168.1.1

Enter your router's IP address into the address bar of your browser and click the enter button on your keyboard. A box like the one below should appear.

Enter the username and password for the Sagemcom Fast 5655v2AC in the corresponding boxes. Important Note: If you have changed them in the past, you need to enter in those values.

Sagemcom Usernames and Passwords

If the username and password did not work I recommend checking out our Default Sagemcom 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 Sagemcom Fast 5655v2AC router your username and password are reverted back to factory defaults.

  • Click on the Port Forwarding tab, which can be found at the top of the screen.

You should now be on a page called Port Forwarding.

Create A Port Forward

Forwarding ports in your router creates a path that allows data to get through your network firewall and it is possible that this could lead to malicious traffic on your network. So make sure that it is really necessary for you to 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. Put a name for this forward in the Custom service name box so that you can remember why you set this forward up. The name does not matter so pick something that has meaning to you.
  2. In the Internal Host 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.
  3. 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.
  4. You can enter either a single number or a range of numbers in the External Port box. If you are forwarding a single port number you can enter it into the External Port box. To forward a range of ports you can enter the lowest number of that range into the External Port box, followed by a hyphen, followed by the largest number. An example would look like this: 1000-2000.
  5. Enter the exact same values that you put in the External Port box, into the Internal Port box.
  6. Click the Apply button, which can be found at the bottom of the screen.
