    I have the similar problem with ST585v6, I set up port forwarding but it ignores the rules, even with all the firewalls disabled.

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 --- 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
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.

If your other wifi enabled devices are connecting through the router you will need to get a new lease on your iPad. Go to settings, wifi and click on the arrow beside your wireless access point. Then click on renew which is on the bottom of that screen. That should fix it.

I have just connected a ThomsonTG 782T router and I cannot get my file share Shareaza to go. I have tried to fix ports with no luck - what do I do? I was able to do it to my old DLink GST604T wish I had...

Hi - I received the Thomson free with my signing up with Bigpond. The IP address in my computer would not come up on my browser. I typed in to google thomson TG782T user manual (which I did not get with Bigpond) there I found the Thomson IP address - and when I typed in that it connected to be browser (but it is they have configured it to stop anyone disabling the firewall and also not to be able to use VOIP. I think my only solution is to buy another modem/router and wish I had stayed with my DLink GS...........Regards, Robyne

Thomson TG585v7 keeps rebooting periodically. This happens approx. three to four times a day

Thomson Router rebooting - I am in N.Z. and have the exact same Thomson Wireless Router, TG585v7, Software version My previous D-Link Wireless router never gave me any trouble, as soon as I installed the Thomson, I kept losing connectivity. I could watch it rebooting in front of me, all lights off, restart and reconnect. I complained to my ISP who sent me another - exactly same problem. We were away for a week and it never rebooted once. I started wondering about Wifi devices , we use an HP Ipaq (it won't connect at all to the Thomson but will to other Acess Points) - have turned Ipaq off for days on end to eliminate but Router still rebooting several times a day. My wife has an Apple IPod and it seems "perhaps" it's when that is charging that we have problems. We are working through that isolation now, I'd be interested to know if you have other wireless enabled equipment - could even be a neighbour's unit interfering.
