Hello,
Please try one of the following option:
Browse to http://dsldevice.lan or to the IP address of your Thomson Gateway (by default: 192.168.1.254).
If your computer runs Windows Vista or Windows XP, you can also access the Thomson Gateway Web Interface using the Internet Gateway Device icon.

If you computer runs Windows Vista:
1 On the Windows Start menu, click Network.
2 The Network window appears:
3 Right-click your Thomson Gateway (displayed as THOMSON TGXXX) and click View device web page.
4 The Thomson Gateway Web Interface appears.

If you computer runs Windows XP:
1 Go to My Network Places.
2 The My Network Places window appears:
3 Double-click your Thomson Gateway (displayed as THOMSON TGXXX).
4 The Thomson Gateway Web Interface appears.

Be sure you don't have any popup blocker or firewall interfering.

For more reference here below the manual (Version 7 that is basically the same of V8)

    Thnx, that was very handy. still facing the issue, no firewall installed but the windows and it is on medium. I tried updating the modem no use, resiting it also no use, the old one used to work but not any more too.
    the defalt gateway works only 2 minuts after reseting or turning on and off then stops responding. thats strange :)

Thomson TG585 v8 connection problem


this is way too vague, try power cycling your modem and router. also make sure you have not accidentally hit the standby button (teal oval on front). let me know what lights are on and or flashing and what lights are not. that modem's GUI can be accessed by entering 192.168.100.1 in the browser bar and you may be able to diagnose your problem from there.

I have a PS3 and I want to change nat type from strict to open when I play Black Ops. My router is a Thomson TG585 v8. How can I do that? Thank You in advance


Hi, I'm not familiar with Thomson routers, but you can watch this video, which details the process for a netgear router. The process will most likely be similar for your router.

How i can re-set factory default for Thomson TG585. i can't set up a user id and password for my net connection.


You can reset Thomson TG585 by pressing the reset button located at the back of the modem for few seconds while the modem is power on. The LEDs at the front would blink and the modem will restart with factory defaults setting.

Cant open ports in elephant with router thomson TG585v7


You need to log on to the router using the default gateway.
Go to Start menu -> Accessories -> Command Prompt
type ipconfig
Note the default gateway
open your browser, in the address bar type in the default gateway ip address - like 192.168.1.254 --- or whatever the IP is.

That should open your router config pages... if it asks you for a user name and password... default usernames depend on your ISP usually, but try for the username Admin, admin, Administrator, administrator and for the password try the same as the username or leave blank... If you have no luck contact your ISP for logging on details.

A web page will open - go to
Toolbox
Game And Application Sharing
At top right click configure
Make sure UPnP and Extended Security are selected if you have those options
Then at the bottom
Create a New Game or Application
from there you just need to select which protocols you need to work with or select ANY
Enter the port you want opened
and add the same port number to the destination / trigger port.

That should be you. If not you need to telnet into you router
Telnet <default gateway IP>
and type Menu
The follow the previous instructions.
