The Technicolor TD5136v2 router includes a basic firewall that helps protect your home network from unwanted Internet access. The firewall blocks incoming and outgoing connections that are not authorized. Some online gaming and programs will run much smoother if you allow more connections through your firewall. This process of allowing incoming ports is frequently called a port forward.
In this guide we will be covering the basics of port forwarding. We will show you:
- How to setup a static IP address on the device you plan on forwarding these ports to.
- How to login to the Technicolor TD5136v2 router interface.
- How to find the port forwarding page in the router's web interface.
- How to setup a port forward for the online game or program of your choice.
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.
- Recommended - Our free Static IP Setter will set up a static IP address for you.
- Another way to get a permanent IP address is to set up a DHCP reservation.
- Or, manually create a static ip address with our Static IP Guides.
This step is important because you want a permanent IP address in your device. If you do not set up a permanent IP address in your device, then when you device reboots it may get a new IP address.
TIP: Write this static IP address down. You need it in Step 4.
Now we are going to login to your Technicolor TD5136v2 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 choose to use.
Open up your web browser and find the address bar. It should look something like this:
Above is an example of what a web browser address bar looks like. Find the address bar in your router and type in your router's IP address.
The default Technicolor TD5136v2 IP Address is: 192.168.1.1
After entering the IP address of your router you can 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. If you do not see a login screen like the one above, you need to find out if the router's IP address has been changed. To do this you can follow the directions on our How To Find Your Router's IP Address page.
- The Default Technicolor TD5136v2 Router Username is: admin
- The Default Technicolor TD5136v2 Router Password is: password
Enter your username and password, and then click the Login or OK button to log in to your Technicolor TD5136v2 router.
Technicolor Usernames and Passwords
If your username and password do not work then please visit our Default Technicolor Router Passwords page.
You can try to guess what the router's username and password were changed to. Use our Find Password App to make this easier.
If you still can't login to your router because you forgot your Technicolor TD5136v2 router username and password, use our How to Reset a Router Password guide to set your Technicolor TD5136v2 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 first page in your router:
From the Home page, click the Toolbox link in the left sidebar.
A new menu will appear at this point. In the new menu, click the Game & Application Sharing option.
Click the Create a new game or application option at the bottom of the page.
Now enter the name of the program in the Name box. It really doesn't matter what you put in this box, but something that reminds you of why you are forwarding these ports is a good idea.
Then put a dot in the Manual Entry of Port Maps radio button.
Finally, click the Next button near the bottom of the page.
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:
Select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding from the Protocol box.
If you are forwarding a range of ports then you need to enter the lowest number into the left Port Range box and the highest number into the right Port Range box. If you are only forwarding a single port then you can enter that same port number into both the left Port Range and the right Port Range boxes.
In the Translate To box type the port to forward.
After you are done click the Add button.
Now click the Assign a game or application to a local network device link at the bottom of the page.
On this page, click the Device box to choose the device you are forwarding these ports to. The device box will contain names of all the devices visible on your network.
Now select the application you created using the Game or Application drop down box.
Finally, click the Add button to enable it.
Your ports should now be open. It is time to test them.
Test if Your Ports are Open
Now that you have forwarded ports on the Technicolor TD5136v2 you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.
