An important aspect of having a Technicolor router on your home network is internet security. In general, routers block incoming internet connections and protect your network by only allowing the connections that you specifically set up. Sometimes it is necessary to unblock certain connections in your router or open a port in order to play a game or use an application. To help you get a better connection for gaming or using an application, you can open a port in your TG784n v3 and allow a direct connection.

To open a port in your Technicolor TG784n v3 router, follow these important steps:

  1. On the computer or device that you are forwarding ports to, you will need to set up a static IP address.
  2. Log in to your Technicolor TG784n v3 router.
  3. Find the Game & Application Sharing section in your Technicolor TG784n v3 router.
    • Click the Toolbox tab, which is at the left of the screen.
    • Click on Game & Application Sharing.
  4. Create a Game & Application Sharing entry.

Setup A Static IP Address

It is important to set up 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.

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

Login To Your Technicolor Router

Log in to your Technicolor TG784n v3 router. To log in you will need to use a web browser since the Technicolor TG784n v3 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 TG784n v3 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 TG784n v3 router's default IP address is: 192.168.1.254

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.

Basic Authentication

Enter the username and password for the Technicolor TG784n v3 in the corresponding boxes. Important Note: If you have changed them in the past, you need to enter in those values.

To log in to your Technicolor TG784n v3 router, enter your username and password, and then click the Login button.

Technicolor Username and Password Trouble

If the username and password that you typed in did not work, check out our Default Technicolor Router Passwords page for other ideas about possible passwords.

If, after trying the above list of passwords you still can't log in, you may need to reset your router. Learn how to do that by reading our How to Reset a Router guide. After resetting the Technicolor TG784n v3 router your username and password are reverted back to factory defaults. Router settings may also change when you reset, so make a note of your current router settings before you reset.

Find the Port Forwarding Section

After a successful login to the Technicolor TG784n v3 router you should be on the home page of your router. Now you need to find the Game & Application Sharing section.

Create A Port Forward

Opening a port to a specific device may solve problems that you are having on your network. Make sure that it is necessary though, before opening a port, because you are effectively creating a pinhole in the firewall portion of your router that could lead to malicious traffic on your network. The risk is exceedingly low, though, so don't let this warning stop you from making this change if you need it.

To begin creating a forward, find the Create a new game or application link at the bottom of the screen and click it.

If you are looking for the ports for a different application you can find it by either:

Now you need to assign the game or application you created to a device. To do that, find the Assign a game or application to a local network device link located near the bottom of the screen and click it.
