Technicolor Guides (not model specific)
Technicolor Guides (not model specific) This section contains guides which are not model specific because the web interface is alomost identical with only subtle difference.  In fact, there is very little difference between firmware versions 15.* and 16.* so a single guide can apply to various models.

Locking down Technicolor routers
Locking down Technicolor routers

With the latest version of firmware (16.2) it is now possible to lock down a router so it can only accept incomming connections from a specific IP address and port.  This is extremely useful if you are using this router to connect a device which only needs to communicate with one place (e.g. a VoIP system).

The reason why you may want to do this is to reduce the chance a third party is able to connect to your devices from other locations.

The below example is taken from the Technicolor TG589vac_v2 running Firmware 16.1.  There are some differences between Firmware 15.* and 16.* but for the most part they are very similar.  Although mostly complete there are some parts of the interface I'm still working on but hopefully you'll fid what you're looking for.

Technicolor - Disable Auto Configuration
TG589vac v2 If you plan to move to a new ISP but keep using the original router, you may run into issues where the router automatically reverts it's settings.  Some ISPs configure their Technicolor routers to use TR069 so this guide will help resolve that issue.
