How do i get back my bigpond web account.


If you've been locked out somehow, your account may have been hacked. If you've just forgotten your password then do the following:
You can only change the password for your BigPond Email with Outlook.com (formerly Windows Live/Hotmail) via Telstra. I am recommending that you change your password for logging into My BigPond / MyAccount this will then flow through to your email account.
Go to BigPond at bigpond.com
Click on the blue 'My BigPond' tab at the top right side of the home page.
Enter in your current username and password
Change your Password.
You can also access your email online by clicking on the webmail link this will take you into BigPond Email with windows live.
Note the new brand name is now BigPond email with Outlook.com. (formerly Windows Live/Hotmail).
If you are still having difficulty I suggest you have your password reset please visit bigpond.com/help/email and select 'Password reset'.
Hope this helps...

Verify that the software you are trying is COMPATIBLE with the operating system on the computer.

Try removing the software and re-installing it in SAFE mode before plugging in the USB or Ethernet cable.

I dont know haow to connect Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router with SpeedBooster WRT54GS - wireless router


  1. Connect your modem to the Internet port of the router. Your computer needs to be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports at the back of the router.
  2. Access the router's setup page by launching Internet explorer and typing 192.168.1.1.
  3. It will ask for a username and password. Leave the username blank and password is admin.
  4. Once your in the setup page, set "Internet connection type" with what your ISP requires you to have.
  5. If you have cable ISP, usually it is "Automatic Configuration-DHCP."
  6. But if you have DSL ISP, then it will be PPPoE. You need to know your username and password from your ISP.
  7. Better yet, verify your Internet connection type from your Internet service provider.
Hope this helps!

I have just relocated property & Iam with Bigpond & have always been with bigpond & when I try to connect to the internet I get an I-primus pop up saying modem misconfigured - bad username or...


If you are using a usb dsl type modem and not a modem/router for connection, go into internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab, then look to see that Bigpond is selected as the default dial up.

If you are using a modem/ router which in effect is on all the time, go into the same menu in IE but tick the liitle button saying never dial a connection.

Have second hand dlink dsl502t modem am trying to access modem to change settings. the modem is unsupported by my isp but they have told me it will work but i need to access the modem and enter my user...


Open a web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox or Opera). Enter the IP address of your router in the address bar of the browser and press enter. The IP address of your router is by default 192.168.1.1

You see a box asking for your username and password.
By default the username and password for your D-link DSL-502T router are both admin
Enter your username and password and click the ok button to continue.

My port magic courtesy of aol is asking for router username and password but I never got one when I bought my laptop. what can I do???


Return the machine, you can't be operating equipment you don't secure or track.

AOL questions should go to AOL and you know it. Perhaps if you know where you got the router (e.g. your telco) you would enquire after the default passwords for things they hand out, or ask your telco's broadband provisioning help section.

Just for fun, I'll tell you my hideously designed ZOOM DSL modem has a default username of "administrator" and default password of "zoomadsl". You should look up the password for the modem you have, if you are using your own router. Similarly, you might blow off anything AOL asks by clicking -cancel- whenever it bothers you (and it might work! What's AOL's business knowing that stuff, anyhow?)

Netgear WGR614


First thing I did with my Netgear is this.
Plug in the dsl/cable modem to the PC directly. Then install the driver on the cd. If you are one of the unlucky types like I was, the router didn't come with a cd. Try going to Netgers page see if they have a driver. Most are basically auto install. Try this before you check the netgear site though. Plug in the cable/dsl modem to the router and the pc to the router. Resstart everything. This includes the modem, router and pc. When it pops back up, try seeing if that works. if not, try opening up Internet explorer. Type this in to the url. 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.0
That should bring up the netgear setup page for the router. If it ask for a password, the password on mine was
username - admin
password - password
It has an auto configure tab so click on that and that should automatically take care of everything for you. Let me know what happens!
