Easiest Way to Get an Open Port on the Thomson Alcatel TCW750-4 Router

Thomson-Alcatel TCW750-4 routers include a very basic firewall that helps protect your home network form unwanted access from the internet. Since this firewall blocks incoming connections you may need 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.

The basic process to open a port is:

  1. Setup a static IP address on either your computer or device that you want to forward a port to.
  2. Login to your Thomson Alcatel TCW750-4 router.
  3. Navigate to the port forwarding section.
    • Click the Advanced link.
    • Click on Forwarding.
  4. Create a port forward entry.

While these steps might seem difficult at first, we will walk you through each step for your Thomson-Alcatel TCW750-4 router.

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.

  • Recommended - Our free program will setup a static IP address for you.
  • Or follow our Static IP Address guides to setup a static IP address.

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

Step 2

Now we are going to login to your Thomson-Alcatel TCW750-4 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:


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 Thomson-Alcatel TCW750-4 router. Your router's IP address can also be refered to as your computer's default gateway.

By default the IP address is set to: 192.168.0.1

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.

  • The Default Thomson Alcatel TCW750-4 Router Username is: none
  • The Default Thomson Alcatel TCW750-4 Router Password is: admin

Enter your username and password, and then click the Login button to log in to your Thomson-Alcatel TCW750-4 router.

Step 3

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:

Step 4

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:

Enter the IP address that you are forwarding ports to in the Local IP Adr box. This is either the IP address of a computer or the IP address of another device on your network.

If you are just forwarding a single port number then you can simply enter that same number into both the Start Port and the End Port boxes. If you are forwarding a range of ports, usually separated by a hyphen, then you need to enter the lowest number of that range into the Start Port box and then enter highest number into the End Port box.

The protocol that you want to forward is selected from the Protocol box.

Enable the Enabled checkbox by putting a check in it.

When you're finished, click Apply near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.

Test if Your Ports are Open

Now that you have forwarded ports on the Thomson-Alcatel TCW750-4 you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.

To test if your port has been properly forwarded, you can use our Network Utilities tool, which includes a free Open Port Checker. Our Open Port Check tool is the only online port checking tool with Guaranteed Results.
