Re: Finding the user name

You must use the RS-232 serial cable using terminal emulation software such as Microsoft HyperTerminal. Connect the cable from your computer to the console port on the DSL-500 or DSL-504. Step 1: Go to Start>Programs>Accessories>Communications>Hyperterminal. Step 2: Enter a name for your connection and choose the default icon selected. Step 3: Select a COM port (usually 1 or 2) and click OK. Step 4: The terminal parameters will need to be set to as follows: Step 5: At the command prompt type isfs cat inituser and press enter. You will now see the username and password.

Hello where can i know my user name for DSL-2640T ? I NEED IT !! PLEASE CAN U HELP ME


There is 2 Usernames when it comes to Routers.

1st is the USERNAME and Password you use to get into the Router configurations which is the following.
Username: admin
Password: admin
The above username and password is the Factory setting and only the password can be changed by an user. SO if it was not changed the password will still be admin or you can reset the modem to reset the password back to admin.

2nd is the Username and Passsword you get from your Internet Service Provider which usually is the email address and whatever password you gave them to set your internet up

How do i open the config manager

Try this:
To access the Zoom Configuration Manager (web-based configuration utility) on the Zoom DSL modem:
  1. Close any open programs including antivirus and pop-up blockers.
  2. Open a web browser, and in its address bar, type (or for Zoom ADSL X6v users) and then press Enter (or Return).
  3. In the Enter Network Password dialog box, type the following username and password in lowercase then click OK. (Note: The modem User Name and Password you enter here are NOT the same as the User Name and Password that your Internet service provider may have given you.)
    • User Name: admin
    • Password: zoomadsl (where "l" is a lowercase letter L)
If you are not prompted for a User Name and Password, click here for more information.

Want to change user name and pass word

You can do so by opening the GUI page of the router:

First connect it to the computer through a Ethernet wire and then check the default gateway (go to command prompt and type ipconfig)

put in the default gateway address in the internet explorer address bar

Log in to GUI..the default username and password is following

Username: admin
Password: admin


Username: admin
Password: password
Log in and change the username and would also be able to change the wireless password (WEP key) from same

I can not remember my password so i can use my wi fi. So how do i reset my password. i can log on to the router can i change it in the settings?

Pressing the Reset button for 5 seconds restores the router to its original factory default settings.

Log in to the Router
This section will explain how to log in to your router using the following steps:
1. Launch your web browser.
2. Enter the URL in the address bar and press Enter.
A login screen like the one below will be displayed after you connect to the user interface.
Note: There are three account types, each requiring a different username and password.
• The user account provides limited access to certain configurations (username / password: user / user).
• The admin account can perform all functions
(username / password: admin / admin).
• The support account is for ISP technicians for maintenance purposes
(username / password: support / support).
Note: Passwords can be changed at any time.
3. Enter your user name and password, and then click OK to display the user interface.
Note: This manual has been prepared using the admin user name

I hooked up my wireless and dsl router again and I forgot the password to get into it

Try a hard reset (small button on the back of the router, usually recessed and accessably using a paperclip to push it in)

This will restore the router to factory settings. The password and user name will revert back to the factory ones which for netgear is

User Name = admin
Password = password

Then once your into the router settings you can set the username and password to something you want.

Hope this helps

It didn't work for me.
Should the username be the email address from At&t that controls the DSL line, or should it be the username to get into the Netopia modem?
