TELIA Thomson TG789vn
« on: 2012-04-09, 19:16:32 »
Have just changed to VDSL with TELIA and got this new router/modem. Opened the port I selected for 1216H-switch and have tried with both TCP/UDP, only TCP and only UDP but can't get in contact with the switch from outside. Had no problem when I had my old Apple Extreme. 2 days work now without joy .. Any hints ?

Sorry to say that the Thomson router is very troublesome for port forwarding. It is well know by gamers. Intried myself with that router and it did not accept any ports forwarded and having a switch behind it really dislikes. Changed to Netgear DGN 2200N I now have 10 adresses forwarded behind a switch attached to the Netgear. Works just great. Other well working routers and modems for Telia seems to be some Dlink models as well Zyxel. So my advice "throw it away" it is scarp if you want services beyound simple surfing and phone out of it. Telia support inofficially admits this as well.
