    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.

I have a Thomson TG585v7 for my computer but i have forgotten the sercurity pass word lock for it, How can i go and change this or even find out what it is????? Thanks

Open INTERNET EXPLORER and. (In the URL address field), enter the IP address for your wireless router ( the DEFAULT GATEWAY. This information should be contained in your router's manual. If you cannot find it, enter "" as the address. This is usually the default IP address for most not type "www" just the number
Enter the username and password for your router. This should also be supplied in the router's manual. If you don't have this information, go to and find the brand and model of your router. This site lists the default login information for most wireless routers you can try "ADMIN" for user name and "PASSWORD" for passsword.
You should now be able to see your wireless router settings. You can configure your network ports, as well as SSID (wireless network name) and passwords.

I cant connect to internet with my thomson tg585v7 but the light for ethernet is green but with wirless from mobile i can connect.can someone help.

Check if you have your firewall on, in your computer. If the computer connected through wireless can get online fine, then that only means Thompson modem/router is online too.

Cannot FTP at all behind Thomson tg585v7

Hi, your router will by default block all incoming packets from outside. You need to configure a firewall rule to allow tcp port 20 and 21 from outside and specify that it must be sent to the IP address of the pc running the FTP server software. Also make sure that your FTP server and firewall on the pc allows these ports in by checking your firewall on your pc.

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.

Can I remove the aerial of the Thomson TG585V7 wireless router?

That is correct, you cannot. It was not designed to be removed. You can dissasemble the unit and install a new antenna, which will require some electronics background but it can be done.
