    As a lot of people have the telstra technicolor tg58* series routers here is the port forward instructions
    login to the Technicolor TG587nv3-BigPond_Technicolor Router
    Now we need to know your routers IP address. You can find it a variety of ways.

    How To Find Your Technicolor TG587nv3-BigPond_Technicolor Router IP Address
    It's ok if you don't know your Technicolor TG587nv3-BigPond_Technicolor router's internal IP address. You can find it by doing one of the following:

    Login To The Technicolor TG587nv3-BigPond_Technicolor Router Using Your Web Browser
    Open a web browser like Internet Explorer or Firefox. Enter the internal IP address of your router in the address bar of your browser.

    [​IMG]
    In the picture above the address bar has http://www.google.com in it. Just replace all of that with the internal IP address of your Technicolor TG587nv3-BigPond_Technicolor router. By default the IP address should be set to 10.0.0.138.

    [​IMG]
    We do not currently know the default username and password for your router. If you know them, please use our Comments page to let us know what they are. Thanks!

    Please visit our Default Router Passwords page if the username and password shown above do not work for you.
    How to Port Forward any port on the Technicolor TG587nv3-BigPond_Technicolor

    Having trouble forwarding ports on the Technicolor TG587nv3-BigPond_Technicolor?
    If you are having trouble with this guide, then perhaps PFConfig may be your solution. PFConfig is a software tool that will automatically forward ports for your Technicolor TG587nv3-BigPond_Technicolor router to save you time and hassle.

    Technicolor TG587nv3-BigPond_Technicolor Router Port Forwarding Screenshots
    Now that you are logged in to your Technicolor TG587nv3-BigPond_Technicolor router you should see the following:

    [​IMG]
    Click the Toolbox button near the left of the page.

    [​IMG]
    Click the Game & Application Sharing link near the left of the page.

    [​IMG]
    Click the Create a new game or application link near the bottom of the page.

    [​IMG]
    Enter the name of the program into the Name box. It doesn't really matter what you put into this box, but something that will remind you why these ports are being forwarded would be a good idea.

    Put a dot into the Manual Entry of Port Maps radio button.

    Click the Next button near the bottom of the page.

    [​IMG]
    Use the Protocol drop down box to select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding.

    If you are forwarding a single port, enter that port number into the Translate To, Top Port Rangeand the Bottom Port Range boxes. If you are forwarding a range of ports, enter the lowest number of that range into the Translate To, Top Port Range box. Then enter the highest number of that range into the Bottom Port Range box.

    When you are finished, click the Add button.

    Click the Apply button near the top of the page.

    Click the Assign a game or application to a local network device link near the bottom of the page.

    [​IMG]
    Use the Device box to choose a computer to forward ports to. This box contains a list of computer names that are visible on your network.

    Select the application you created using the Game or Application drop down box. Then click Add to enable it.

    And that is it! You are done!


    Test if Your Ports are Open
    Now that you have forwarded ports for any port on the Technicolor TG587nv3-BigPond_Technicolor you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.

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

    Hey Dek,
    Good post, doubled my tech-savvy. Still clueless though. Can you explain the part where you enter the port numbers into the router settings. What numbers do I put where???

    This is the links for tutorial Videos for1: Perfect PS3 connection to TG782T thru DMZ setup(only one device per router)video and portforwarding 2:a video tutorial for DMZ setup & 3:A Screenshot and txt tutorial for portforwarding for PSN.If you use this tutorial link be sure to enter your PS3 static IP address in the box at the top and it in the appropriate boxes below to show you where it goes.It includes the PSN port numbers and whereto put them,etc
    This is a full length video tutorial on perfect PS3 connection for TG782T including static PS3 IP address

    This is a full length(But the guy goes fast)video tutorial for Unlocking & Upgrading the TG782T Firmware to latest version,step by step

    This is the best DMZ guide i've found
    Get your ps3 connected again,you may have to clear it out of your router. before you do though,watch the DMZ guide and follow it while logged in to your router.It has the bits after where we got to before you ended up with 0.0.0.0 entered,so you'll know where to go from there. Do the PS3 static IP first like the static ip thread on ROOZ in the GT6 forum,except do wireless instead of wired,Then follow the video,after logging in to your router.He uses his PC as the example device,but you just click on the ps3 when it shows you how to find & assign the device by using the drop down box. If you have any hassles txt me & i'll call you.
    http://portforward.com/english/rout...homson-Alcatel/TG782T/PlayStation_Network.htm Use this link to get to the port forward tutorial with screenshots & the port numbers. The original list was slightly wrong.Sorry i got it off of the gran turismo site.

    This is as basic as i can explain things for the non-technoheads. I have made it all related to the PS3 only to try to remove any doubts.You will not have to call your ISP(Internet Service Provider) unless you cannot log on to your home page and wish to remove lag.

    Basic definitions of terms regarding PS3
    Static IP address: A permanent address for your router to identify your PS3 in particular
    Dynamic IP address: An IP address issued by the router each time a device is connected to it based on the order things have been connected,making it possible when multiple devices are used for things to be double identified when settings are "saved" the first time a device is connected,which also makes a Dynamic IP changeable
    Ports:individually numbered routes through your router system to identify them for the exchange and lobbies
    Port Forwarding: manually inputted numbers used to identify which internet ports are needed to be unblocked to ensure efficient running of a particular application,the application in this case being the PS3.You identify the PS3 for this process with your static IP you will create first.
    This ensures that doing it will not effect any other devices connected. If your router has any of it's own protocols on the ports forwarded,it will move them elsewhere for your PS3 only
    DMZ: De-Militarised Zone. A function on your router that sends your PS3 signal through a Defirewalled route.It is generally identified for your device by your static IP address or chosen from an identified device list. Sometimes some routers will not unblock all ports if they have a protocol set on them.In those cases you need to do both using the same Staic IP address for your PS3 so that they are moved for the PS3 first.
    Up&p:Universal plug & play. A internet system designed for easy plug in and go internet usage.As with anything universal it does not fit every application.If you are using a dynamic IP & Up&p now and experience no issues EVER,then it is working for you and you don't need to go any further.This would be because the PS3 is the only device connected ever.
    ADSL profiles:The type of profile your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to set the amount of firewall checking at your local exchange to stop dropouts.As you move further away from the exchange more checking is needed,increasing your ping(time for your signal to get from you to the lobby server specified.) and possibly causing lag.As a default setting they will be on a standard setting with medium firewall checking. There are normally 3 faster stages & 3 slower stages.You can change them yourself in a simple click of a mouse on personal account ISP page,from a list. It will take anywhere from ten to 60 min to change over. You will need to reset your router to help it.A rule of thumb is for every 1.5km from the exchange you should add one level up to standard.You can also use trial and error. If you DSC and can see it's because your router has no internet signal & you have to wait for it to reconnect,not just dsc'd from lobby only,you need to back it off. You can get this manually done by your ISP with a phone call,they are more than happy to help & takes no time at all,not like trying to get numbers,etc. You would only do this if you suffer lag,but live within 5km's of your exchange. I personally live 0.5km from mine and can run in the fastest profile,Low Latency(low ping)

    It is very important to setup a static ip address, if you are going to use port forwarding and/or DMZ When you have port forwarding setup, your router forwards ports to an ip address that you specify. Without setting up a static ip address port forwarding will probably work when you initially set it up, but after restarting your PS3 it may get a different ip address. When this happens the ports will no longer be forwarded to your PS3's ip address. So the port forwarding configuration will not work.

    What is an ip address?
    IP addresses are four sets of numbers separated by periods that allow computers to identify each other. Every computer has at least one ip address, and two devices should never have the same ip address. If they do, neither of them will be able to connect to the internet.

    Dynamic vs Static IPs Most routers assign dynamic IP addresses by default. They do this because dynamic ip address networks require no configuration. The end user can simply plug their computer or console in, and their network will work. When ip addresses are assigned dynamically, the router is the one that assigns them. Every time a computer or console reboots it asks the router for an ip address. The router then hands it an ip address that has not already been handed out to another computer or console. This is important to note. When you set your PS3 to a static ip address, the router does not know that the PS3 is using that ip address. So the very same ip address may be handed to another computer or console later, and that will prevent both devices from connecting to the internet. So when you asign a static IP addresses, it's important to assign an IP address that will not be handed out to other devices by the dynamic IP address server. The dynamic IP address server is generally refered to as the dhcp server.



    Setting up a static ip for your PS3.

    [​IMG]

    Step 1:
    Turn on your PS3, and then navigate to the Settings option on the main menu.



    [​IMG]

    Step 2:
    Move down this list to Network Settings. Network Settings should be at the very bottom of the list.



    [​IMG]

    Step 3:
    After you have selected Network Setting, move to the right and select Settings and Connection Status List in the list that comes up.



    [​IMG]

    Step 4:
    Write down the IP Address, Subnet Mask,Default Router and primary & secondary DNS displayed here. You will use same Subnet Mask,Default Router and primary DNS down below. You will change the last octet of the IP Address and enter it below as well. More on how to do that later. Go ahead and go back to the Network Settings menu.



    [​IMG]

    Step 5:
    After you have selected Network Setting, move to the right and select Internet Connection Settings in the list that comes up.



    [​IMG]

    Step 6:
    An short message will pop up. Press Ok to move on.



    [​IMG]

    Step 7:
    Select Custom for the setup method.



    [​IMG]

    Step 8:
    On the next page select Wired or Wireless connection depending upon how your PS3 is connected to your network.You should be using a wired connection with a CAT 6e ethernet lead.CAT 5e will work,but can get hot causing lag,especially if longer than 2m.If you can keep one cool it will be fine.



    [​IMG]

    Step 9:
    We are going to setup this connection manually so we can forward ports to your PS3,and set the DMZ for your PS3. So select Manual Settings.



    [​IMG]

    Step 10:
    Auto-Detect the speed and duplex settings.



    [​IMG]

    Step 11:
    We are going select Manual Settings on the IP Address Setting page.



    [​IMG]

    Step 12:
    Enter the the ip address you want to use for your PS3 into this page. It's important to choose an ip address that your router will not assign dynamically.You are ONLY changing the last set of the four, just pick an address that is not close to the ip address we found earlier. For instance if your PS3 was using something like 192.168.0.2, then you would want the new ip address to be something like 192.168.0.25. If your PS3 was using something like 192.168.0.25, then you would want the new ip address to be something like 192.168.0.50. It is relevant to the amont ofdevices that connect to your router. Only the last group of numbers on the ip address should change, and that group of numbers would range from 2 to 254. Please, don't over think this just pick a number and go with it. I have just tried to provide some guidelines here so you can pick a better number.

    Enter the Default Gatway,Subnet Mask and primary & secondary DNS we wrote down earlier.You do not need to call your ISP for this when using a modem/router combined.Your router has done this for you already electronically when it connects before you turn on your PS3 every time.We are just making your router identify your PS3 specifcally



    [​IMG]

    Step 13:
    Select Automatic for the MTU settings.



    [​IMG]

    Step 14:
    You should always select Do Not Use on the Proxy Server page. The only time you need to setup proxy server settings is when you connect through a proxy server. If you were doing that, you would have been given specific instructions from your isp on how to setup this section on your original connection



    [​IMG]

    Step 15:
    Set the UPNP options to Disable. UPNP should be turned off so it doesn't try to use it, instead of your port forwarding configuration and DMZ



    [​IMG]
    these numbers are examples.you should have the numbers you entered at this stage
    Step 16:
    Your PS3's IP Address should be Confirmed. If it is not then you have made an error in setting up the static ip address for your PS3,and should go back to step 1.If not,select enter & continue



    [​IMG]

    Step 17:
    Your PS3 should save your settings. Select the Test Connection option on this page.



    [​IMG]

    Step 18:
    All of the tests should pass, except the UPNP test. We previously disabled it. If the playstation network fails,do not panic at this point.It means you have a blocked port.If not,you should come back with a NAT Type 2.
    DMZ
    With most routers,to set the DMZ for the PS3,all you need to do is log in to your router(instructions in the port forwarding link,once you find your router in the port forwarding for ps3 section at the link) After logging in,find the DMZ function and either select your PS3 from the device list or enter your PS3 static IP address in the box provided.
    The next step is port forwarding to ensure any needed ports(list below)are not blocked by your routers system.this stops problems of you or others not seeing or hearing each other
    Port forwarding you can do yourself by using this link,but ignore the popups selling programmes to four PF configuration,or check your ports are unblocked,unless you can afford about $40 each and would rather it be done like that,the DMZ function takes care of the check by it's nature.Remember the purpose of port forwarding is to move protocols not needed for the PSN to other places for your PS3 only.
    http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/default.htm
    This link has a database of tens of thousands of brand/model modem/routers with just as easy to follow instructions with screen shots,including how to log into your router.Obviously i can't post for every model router or the thread would be gigantic & i ain't sitting for months on end doing it! lol
    The PSN port numbers are 80,443,465,983,3478-3479,3658,5223,10070-10079
    The link may be missing some of these so use the above list
    They need to be set to BOTH TCP & UDP & you need to link them with the PS3 static IP address you created for it by entering it as the IP address where the instructions tell you to put it and it will fill in the blanks down further,however there are two small changes you need to make. Where there are the 2 sets of port numbers that run from a number to a number,you enter the first one in the start box & thesecond in the end box. That will unblock and move protocols from all the ports between and including those numbers.After completing your port forwarding,Test your connection again and you should get the succeeded for all except Up&p,NAT2 and your speeds.
    Anyone still unable to get their head around this can message me,but honestly it's not that hard,just a number of terms to basically understand,and at worst you can do an easy connection again if you hit problems and keep going the way you were
    @stucar17 hey mate,can you "sticky" this or tag it so that everyone sees it or whatever needs to be done. I was asked to specifically edit it and try to dum it down and explain a few terms. I've done the best i can with the dumbing down

    I tried this last month and couldn't get a Nat 2 because my ip was in the private range 10.x.x.x so no matter how I tried wouldn't work. Then managed to get a public one through telstra 126.x.x.x and it worked straight away with the guild. So if it's not working for someone maybe check you ip. Thanks for the guild @DekGT5mad

    I called a friend who is an ex gamer after he stopped laughing at me I think we got through it. It was more the modem settings that confused me. I will be around Saturday night to test. Hopefully I can find a fullish room to test in.

    @Hatfield if Rippen cant work this out are you any chance of helping him out..
    He has reasonable connection, but just keeps getting kicked.
    Type 2. Upload 2mbps, download 33mbps
    I wonder if its something to do with the router firewall or something i have no clue about !
    Anyone else able to help ??or know someone that can ??
    @Slambobagan possibly

    I could teamviewer in and have a look at the router settings
    fixed ip on the router for the ps4 will help
    port forwarding can't hurt
