Speedtouch 576 When I was with AOL they issued me with a speedtouch 576 router. I have since come away from AOL and gone to talktalk and would like to use the 576 , but it seems locked to aol it always tries to connect to a valid aol accountwhich I do not have any more. Does anybody know where I could download drivers or a way around this

Re: speedtouch 576

At the back of the modem the is a small hole very small, use a pin and while the modem is on use it to push the botton inside of the small hole. this should restart the modem, if not delete AOL from your PC and then do it again usely when you connect your modem to your PC it should log onto the web without you having to do anything.

if this dosen't help you need to give us more info on what errors are coming up.

Have you tried to reset the device using a pin or paperclip, this should restore the device to factory settings and allow your new internet service provider help you with the setup to connect to thier service.

When I connect my wireless router to my computer the speedtouch cannot be detected by my computer therefore I have no internet on my computer but I have wireless on both laptops which are directed through...

you probably have the router set to static ip so first you have to assign your pc with an ip range of the router , then log in the router set to dynamic ip and make sure you connect cables as per router manual. if it does not work then disable firewall , enable upnp devices . After configuration of wireless router you can enable firewall again. If you are using vpn with speedtouch then you should configure speedtouch to store username and password to connect to isp

I have a speedtouch 576 which i have secured the network and now it will not let me in?

I had the same thing happen to me. Unfortunately for me I had to have a tech come to my home and manually reset everything. I was told that I could not do it myself even though I am a DSL tech. They reset everything back to default settings and everything worked fine.

Xbox360 elite

do u have a router and if so u need to make sure these ports are open

If you have not already forwarded ports for your xbox through your router then that may be your problem.

The following ports must be available to your Xbox 360 console for Xbox LIVE to operate correctly:
  • TCP 80
  • UDP 88
  • UDP 3074
  • TCP 3074
  • UDP 53
  • TCP 53

set your router to Protocol = PPPOA, VPI = 0, VCI = 38 Encapsulation = VC-MUX , your username is usually your phone number followed by or & your password in the password box (these should be on the letter sent by talktalk when you registered.
