How to Assign Static IP in Technicolor TG784n v3 using DHCP

You can actually assign a static IP for your computer using DHCP. Most router will support this feature. But there are many terms for it. For example, TP-Link router call this feature “DHCP Address Reservation”. Unfortunately, my router provided by Maxis is a Technicolor TG784n v3 (also commonly known as the Thomson router) which uses a custom interface. None of the settings name make sense to a technical guy like me.

In this guide, I’ll show you on how to set it in the TG784n v3 router.

  1. Open your router’s admin web interface. (Default is 192.168.1.254 without user/password)

    Hi Bro, how r u? PeowYong here, happen to bump in to ur site while searching for something… btw, how do we set the DMZ in this Technicolor TG784n v3? I had set a static IP for the device. I can’t set the DMZ, it just shows “Not assigned and no compatible device found” for both eInternet and mInterment. i can’t do the settings even though i had login as Administrator.

      Hi bro,

      I’m good, how about you? 🙂 Sorry for the late reply, I rarely check the comments… haha.

      As for the DMZ, I can see some of the devices in my network (but not all). So I select one of the device and set it under DMZ. See the screen shots in the link below:
