Your Tilgin Vood 452w router includes a firewall that helps to protect your home network from any unwanted access. This is what firewalls are designed to, but sometimes you want these connections opened for a game or other application. When you open these connections you are creating an open port, or more commonly called a port forward because you are forwarding a port directly to a device inside your home network.
To open port on the Tilgin Vood 452w router you need to:
- Setup a static IP address on your computer or device you want to forward a port to.
- Login to your Tilgin Vood 452w router.
- Find the port forwarding section:
- Click the Advanced button.
- Click the Port Forwarding button.
- Click the User radio button.
- Click the New button.
- Create a port forward rule or entry.
These steps may seem difficult at first, but we will walk you through each step in opening a port for the Tilgin Vood 452w router.
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. Download Network Utilities today!
- Another highly recommended way of getting a permanent IP address is to set up a DHCP Reservation.
- Or, follow our Static IP Address Setup guides.
With DHCP reservations you can manage your devices from your router. This centralizes the management of your network and helps prevent IP address conflicts. Using this method you do not have to log in to your devices separately.

Tilgin Usernames and Passwords

If you are still unable to login in to the router interface you may have changed the username and password in the past and forgotten. It might be time to consider a reset. When you reset a router you lose all your personal data in the router including the changed username and password. Check out our How to Reset a Router Password guide to learn more.

A couple new buttons appear when you do this. Click the button labeled New.
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:
Make up a name to put in the Rule Name box. The name does not have any effect on the functionality of the forward, it's simply there so you can know why it was created.
In the Protocol box select the protocol that you want to forward these ports over.
If you are forwarding a single port, enter that port number into the Port Map, Port Start and the Port End boxes. If you are forwarding a range of ports, enter the lowest number of that range into the Port Map, Port Start box. Then enter the highest number of that range into the Port End box.
After you are done click the Apply button.
Don't forget to click the Apply button after each entry.
