 Setting up port forwarding on Actiontec GT704WG & GT704WGB gateways

The first step is to make sure you have the port information from the manufacturer or service that requires port forwarding. This normally includes the protocol, port start, port end, and port map.

The steps that follow provide instructions on how to set up port forwarding, but you must know the application's port settings to enter in the configuration screens.

Note: The configuration screens may vary slightly depending on when you purchased your gateway and the version of firmware running on it.

To set up port forwarding on your Actiontec GT704WG or GT704WGB gateway:

  1. Open your Web browser and enter in the Address field.

  2. Enter your password in the Password field. You were required to change it during installation, so it can't be "password."

  3. Click OK.

  1. Click Security in the top menu bar. [Show Me]

  2. Click Applications in the Security screen. [Show Me]
