A Technicolor EPC3940ADL router protects your home network by blocking unwanted incoming internet connections and acting as a basic firewall. Sometimes you need to open a port in your router in order to get a good connection for a game or to use a specific device on your network. The EPC3940ADL lets you choose the applications that are allowed to connect through an open port. By opening a port in your router you allow a specific application or game to send data from the internet to your home network.

Follow these steps to open a port in your Technicolor EPC3940ADL router:

  1. Set up a static IP address on the device or computer you are forwarding these ports to.
  2. Go ahead and log in to your Technicolor EPC3940ADL router.
  3. Find the Port Range Forwarding section in your Technicolor EPC3940ADL router.
    • Find the Home Network button at the middle of the screen and click on it.
    • Click the Applications & Gaming tab at the left of the screen.
    • Click the Add Port Forwarding Rule button at the middle of the screen.
  4. Create a Port Range Forwarding entry.

Step 1

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

Log in to your Technicolor EPC3940ADL router. To log in you will need to use a web browser since the Technicolor EPC3940ADL uses a web interface to access router configurations.

Open up whichever internet browser that you are comfortable with. If you are not sure which one to use, then go ahead and open Chrome, Firefox, or Edge.

To help with confusion, we have simplified this step for you with this link: Login to your EPC3940ADL Router

Once you have opened a web browser, find the address bar which is usually located at the top of the screen. The image below shows an example of this.

Above is an example of what a web browser address bar looks like. Find the address bar in your web browser and type in your router's IP address.

The Technicolor EPC3940ADL router's default IP address is: 192.168.0.1

After typing your router's IP address into the address bar, make sure to click the enter button on your keyboard. You should see a box similar to the one shown below.

To login, enter the username and password for the Technicolor EPC3940ADLs. 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 Submit button.

Technicolor Usernames and Passwords

If the username and password did not work, go to our Default Technicolor Router Passwords page for help.

If, after trying the above list of passwords you still can't log in you may need to consider a reset for your router. Learn how to do that by reading our How to Reset a Router guide. **Note:**After resetting the Technicolor EPC3940ADL router your username and password revert back to factory defaults.

Step 3

After successfully logging in to your Technicolor EPC3940ADL router you should see the router's home page on your screen. Find the Port Range Forwarding section of your router.

This is the home page from your Technicolor router.

You should now be on a page that says Port Range Forwarding.

Step 4

Make sure that you must open a port in your router before doing so since this will allow data to come through the firewall portion of your router to a specific device. It is possible that this could lead to malicious traffic on your network. However, don't let this warning stop you from making this change if you need it because the risk is very low.
