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..

Master password for wifi


A wireless router is an external computer peripheral that accepts an incoming Internet connection, such as that from a cable modem, and converts it into a local wireless signal, allowing computers in the area with wireless adapters to connect to the Internet.
Netgear is a popular manufacturer of wireless routers; the settings on Netgear routers can be changed by logging in to the router with a Web browser.
Determine your wireless router's IP address.
Many Netgear routers are set to 192.168.0.1 by default.
In Windows 7, you can find this IP address by clicking "Start," then typing "cmd" in the search box, without clicking "Enter."
When the search completes, right-click on the command icon and select "Run as administrator." In the window that opens, type "ipconfig" and click enter.
Your router's IP address will be shown on the "Default Gateway" line.
In earlier versions of Windows, click "Start," then "Run," then type "Command" in the box, click "OK," then type "ipconfig" and press enter.
Your router's IP will be listed as the "Default Gateway."

Open an Internet browser and type the router's IP address into the address bar.

Enter your router's username and password if prompted to log in.
By default, the user name and password may be "admin" and "password."


Change settings within the router's administrative center as necessary.
There will be several menus available where you can set up security for your router and set various communication options.


Choose to apply or save changes as necessary.
Your router's menus should have plainly visible buttons to apply and/or save changes you make to the settings.

Close the browser window when you are finished making changes.

the IP address for you router is usually 192.168.0.1

anyway, you can get it following these steps:

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

How do i set a password to protect my wireless internet


Access the Router's page and go to Wireless configuration. You may assigned a WEP key that uses hexadecimal value (A-F, 0-9). So if someone attempts to access your Wireless network, they will prompt to enter a Wep key.
