Resetting password ? Bell told me I would have to change my router password

Presently in the command window it reads -

  • The I.P. address as - 192.168.10. 4 but it should read 192.168.10.1 (according to the troubleshooting guide for this unit)
  • The sub-net and default numbers match the troubleshooting guide numbers
  • Bell internet said I would have to reset my access password for the router, after encountering internet problems today where I had to reset my internet username and password.
  • I tried to reset the router but I am only getting more confused.
Any suggestions? Thank you. BON

The router has a built in configuration chip that allows you to work on the router from your computer. This is called Web Admin Console

Your computer's IP address is 192.168.10.4
The router's address is by default 192.168.10.1 from factory. (AKA the GATEWAY.. like gateway to the internet) This can be changed but it is highly reccomened you leave it default.

To access the configuration of your router
Go to internet explorer and type http://192.168.10.1 hit enter.
You will see a window with a webpage of some sort that has the Motorola logo somehwere.
Look for PPPoE or password setting... you should be able to navigate from here..


A word of advice.. enter your password, save settings, slick or or something like that..
then restart router (pull power, wait 5 secs, and then plug back in) The router has to talk to Bell for a bit to make sure it knows that you're authorized to use the DSL line.

Best Wishes..

HOW DO I GET IP ADDRESS FROM MY ROUTER AND HOW DO


the IP address for you router is usually 192.168.0.1

anyway, you can get it following these steps:
go to start -> run, and type "cmd" (without the quotes) and press enter.

then write "ipconfig" (again, without quotes) and hit enter. read the information provided and right next to "Default Gateway" will be your router's IP address.

if you have never changed the password, you should use the default one:
user: admin
password: password

Network Problems


A. Determining the IP Address and MAC Address of a Computer:

Note: Please use the computer for which the Ports are to be opened:

For Windows 2000/XP users:

1. Please click on Start and select Run.
2. Type in cmd and click on OK.
3. In the Command Prompt, please type ipconfig/all then press Enter or Return key.
4. Please make sure that the Ethernet adapter has an IP Address that is the same range as the router (e.g. 192.168.1.2 for the computer and 192.168.1.1 for the router).
5. Please note down the IP address and Physical address.

B. Reserving an IP Address:

1. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
2. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
3. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

4. When the setup page opens, click on LAN IP Setup under Advanced tab.
5. Click on Add under Address Reservation.
6. Under Address Reservation window, please select the radio button of the computer you wish to add from the Address Reservation Table.
7. If the computer you want is not on the list, please click on the Refresh button to update the table.
8. If the computer is still not on the Address Reservation Table, please type in the IP Address, MAC Address (Physical Address), and Device Name of the computer you wish to add.
9. Click the Add button when done.

C. Enabling DMZ:

1. On the left side of the setup page, click on the WAN Setup under Advanced tab.
2. Check the Default DMZ Server and specify the IP address of your computer.
3. Click on the Apply button.
