Hitron CGN3ROG and Port Forwarding

PVC
I Plan to Stick Around

So I decided to return my Asus router that I had purchased (simply wasnt getting much more range to justify the price), and am back to just using the CGN3ROG.  Prior to getting the Asus, port forwarding (for a security camera) was working fine and I could log in.

 

However now I cant get it to work.  I can get into my router via the WAN address provided however, if I add a colon and insert the port I'm using (in this case, 92), I get a website error.

 

I can see that the port is forwarded in the Basic menu.  My firewall settings are minimum and allow ping to WAN (not sure if any of those matter, I also tried turning off the firewall alltogether just to see and that didnt work either).

 

Not sure why it was working before, but not now?  Any guesses as to a setting I have incorrect!?

 

Thanks!

Yes, the solution I found was to purchase a router and put the Hitron into Bridge mode.  Found it too frustrating to deal with.

 

Which reminds me, I should probably exchange it for a regular modem.

The address for the camera, has not changed internally?  Its still on the same IP address? (therefore forwarding to the right one?)

Yup. First thing I checked. Have set a dchp reservation on it as well.

The port forwarding on that unit.. didnt work up until a recent firmware/software update to it... perhaps its reverted to the older firmware?

 

You are trying to access it from an EXTERNAL source, correct? Work, mobile, etc.. to your home external IP.. you are not trying to do it to the external IP, while inside the network, correct?

Re: Hitron CGN3ROG and Port Forwarding

Firmware on it is 4.2.4.1

What's odd is that I can only access the WAN IP (the one on the status page) internally. If I use my phone, turn off wifi, and try to access the man WAN IP I can't access that page either.

Hi, 

Did you manage to find a solution ? I have the same problem once I switched to the hitron CGN3ROG router.

Do share anything that worked for you.

 

thx.

They don't have just regular modems anymore :(. (Much to the demand of many of us)

But you could change down to a lower one than the cgn3 though, and bridge it.

I have set my ports many times but no matter what I am always unabled to host servers for Minecraft, terraria, or even private servers. 

 

This is a constant restraint Rogers routers ALWAYS put on me. How the heck do i get this fixed? I've recently gotten a new router and no change.  I am not buying a router as i know it'll end up coming out of my pocket- and get stolen by the workers who pickup the gear when services get disconnected. ( I move often)

 

I just currently want to portforward port21025 to open access to Starbound and play with a couple friends, and this stuff makes it so irritating. I can do it using Evolve but that limits people to downloading it and I hate having to force people into that kind of situation. Here's my current setup

 

http://puu.sh/9CcDD/b6366ab74e.jpg

CGN3ROG Hitron Router

Starbound 21025~21025 1~1 TCP 192.168.0.10

I've also tried TCP/UDP and no luck.

You have 21025, in both the port fields on the settings?

Public and Private, should be both set to the same thing.

 

From your post there... looks like you have local set to port 1?


(external clients are sending info to port 21025 across the internet.... and you want to take that, and send that to your internal software, who is also listening on 21025)
I am guessing 192.168.0.10 is your PC.  (make sure if you are doing this regularily, to set your PC to a static address.. otherwise your PC IP could change)

 

Even to test, turn off your PC firewall temporarily, as it could be blocking the port internally.

While not for game servers.. i port forward 4 sets of ports... Two different HTTP ports, an FTP port, and a port for media playthrough... all port forward, and work with no issues.

I upgraded my internet package a few months ago and received the Hitron CGN3ROG modem.

 

I was trying to set up a server for a game yesterday and no matter what I tried, I couldn't port forward it. The modem I had before could port forward just fine without any hassle.

 

I have looked around the forums and found others have said that Rogers disabled all portforwarding on those modems, but apparently they were re-enabled by a firmware update, which I imagine my modem has updated to. Yet still to no avail I cannot port forward.

 

Are there any viable solutions? For those interested, my computer is connected to the modem, and I have an Airport Express for Wifi. I have tried connecting to the Airport directly and port forwarding through there while the modem is on bridge mode, but that doesn't work either.

 

Any help is appreciated.

Re: Hitron CGN3ROG and Port Forwarding

If you log into the modem, on the first page, the FW version should be 4.2.4.3.. that is the latest.

 

My first viable solution.. you have tried though.
If you did a FULL bridged mode, loged into the unit, basic section, gateway tab, and disabled commercial gateway.... then added your airport express as a router...

 

Then any and all port forwarding features should then be handled by the airport express.

 

Sound like something else might have been blocking it? (local firewall, etc).

Re: Hitron CGN3ROG and Port Forwarding

ChrisNeu

The modem is 4.2.4.3, so it is definitely not a firemware update problem then.

 

I just added an exception for the firewall for the port I am trying to open. Whe I check using canyouseeme.org, I still receive "No route to host"

 

As for the recommendation do you mean the Residential Gateway Function? And how do I add the Airport as a router? It is already recognized in the connected devices on LAN Setup tab. And when the modem is in bridge mode, do I have to have the Airport in bridge mode? Or should I set it to "Share a public IP address"?

 

Sorry for the late reply.

Re: Hitron CGN3ROG and Port Forwarding

Ok so you seem not to be in bridged mode.

By putting the cgn3 into bridged mode effectively turns it into a modem only.

You would then need to set it up as per apples instruction as a router
( though it performs poorly as a router)

Hello, i am trying to port forward a minecrft server (25565) but when i type my default gateway in the search bar nothing shows up, just an infinate loading screen.  

 

I use a CGN3/ CGN3ROG and i cant figure anyrhing out. 

 

Please help 🙂

 

 

Re: Hitron CGN3ROG and Port Forwarding

Good Afternoon @Curnew001,

 

 

 

Welcome to the Forums and Thank you for your post!Smiley Happy

 

I understand you're looking to setup port forwarding for a Minecraft Server on the Hitron CGN3ROG router/modem and so far you have enter the default gateway (192.168.0.1) in the search bar. You actually need to enter the default gateway into the browser address bar above. Just delete / replace any current address that's already there (see the example below).

 

 address bar.png

 

If you have already tried the address bar, maybe try another browser and let us know what type of error message shows up (if any)? You can also check here for a step by step on Port Forwarding the Hitron Technologies CGN3ROG Router for Minecraft Server. Or check out the information below:

 

Set Up Port Forwarding on a Hitron CGN3 or CGN3ACR

  1. Open a web browser, go to the address at the top and enter the following address to access the gateway login page: 192.168.0.1.
  2. Login with:
    • Username: cusadmin
    • Password: password
  3. Click Basic.
  4. Click Port Forwarding.
  5. Switch All Port forwarding Rules to Enabled.
  6. Click Add.
  7. Enter the following settings:
    • Common Application: List of common applications and servers that are forwarded
    • Application Name: A point of reference to remember what is being forwarded
    • Protocol: Choose either TCP, UDP, TCP/UDP, GRE, ESP
    • Public Port Range: Enter the starting public port range on the left and the ending range on the right.  If only one port needs to be opened then both boxes should have the same port number
    • Private Port Range: Enter the starting private port range on the left and the ending range on the right.  If only one port needs to be opened then both boxes should have the same port number
    • Local IP Address: The ending IP address of the device you want the changes to apply to
  8. Click Apply.

 

 

Really hopes this helps

Re: Hitron CGN3ROG and Port Forwarding

I am having a real problem with the port forwarding page... basicially when I login to the IP.... I can click on all other tabs, but when I click on port fowarding tab, it times out in less than a minute and says <connection failed, page cannot be found>. I then have to reboot the wireless modem. I have done this wirelessly and via ethernet MANY TIMES.

 

The issue - I purchased the synology DS1815 and of course this router is not supported with its wizard, neither is the CGN3 which the tech said I should switch out from the AC Rocket... not really sure that will help. I already switched the CGN3ACSMR once.

 

Fact is I got into the PF tab once before I switched out the modem and set up a couple of ports.... but I coudn't do it a second time. Called in - they said to reset (pinhole) the system - I did, but I never got back in to port forwarding page. Then I call the techexpert people, ready to pay, after telling them my story of getting booted out - they say switch the modem. So I run to Rogers and did so.

 

Yesterday I set it up from scratch using the key, new account and actually got into the page. In a few seconds all the portfowards were displayed of which I have a screen shot. I was able to add the few I needed. However, there were a couple of ports (e.443 - https) that although "on" by default, did not function. Anyway - I logged off, things work, but I have not been able to get into that PF page ever since.

 

Note - I had another airport express on, but I have had it on and off to see if the networks are clashing. I makes no difference. I feel I should not have to purchase a different modem with extra ports for bridging purposes, becuase supposedly when you bridge, you can no longer use the Hiltron modem ports... this is all just so I can get into the port forwarding tab and view it, heaven forbid change one. For now, my system works, but I can't modify it.

 

Has anyone had this issue? Or can solve it - please? And thank you in advance!

I don't know what other settings to change Unpn is enabled, security at min.

 

It makes no sense getting in a couple of times and then not being able to get in. Is there something I am missing - this is all very new to me. Thank you

 

Re: Hitron CGN3ROG and Port Forwarding

The port forwarding page SHOULD work.

The trick is getting to it

When you first go into the BASIC tab.. this is where the issues stem from.
On this page, it tries to load all the connected devices on a device table at the bottom of the page.

If you try to go to any other tabs, this can cause the crashes/timeouts.

Best bet, is to leave it on the main BASIC/LAN SETUP.. leave it there for a good 5 or so mins, until you see the table populate down at the bottom of the page.

THEN try going to the forwarding tab.

Hi there...

Thank you kindly  for your response - I tried this without luck.

 

I left it on the basic page a few times for way more than 5 mins.  It does not load the info at the bottom - I have to click 'show" for it to appear. 

But I did that a few times with the show as well - and when I click on the port forward tab - again, it just times out. It won't load the existing port forwards. I simply cannot access the page. Sigh!

 

Also - my modem is CGN3ACSMR (not the CGN3ROG)

Re: Hitron CGN3ROG and Port Forwarding

Hi @certifiedcuriou,

 

 

Thank you for your post!

 

 

I understand you have a Hitron CGN3ACSMR modem with port forwarding configurations that are set and working fine, however you're no longer able to access the port forwarding page due to the page timing out. Have you tried accessing the same page from another PC or browser? Have you tried removing all other physical cable / hardware connections to test access? If you reboot this replacement wireless modem, are you still able to access the port forwarding page? Maybe try setting up the port forwarding from scratch again this time setting and testing the page with only one port setting at a time rather than adding them all at once.
