It is not done at the router but at each device. The router supplies connections via a local sub-masked address. It is typically assigned an IP address via the ISP's DHCP server. Typically usernames are used for e-mail and Usenet. Your connection is validated by the MAC address on the router. Your ISP can not look beyond your router. You can have 1 device or dozens. It matters not.

    Jeffrey Pedimonte is wrong! IF you do that you will open up your suytem to attacks! Your router password has NOTHING to do with your ISP. It's PRIVATE. It's to stop other conpoters on your network from changing settings. It has nothing to do with your external access. Whta he is suggesting is as dumb as using a bank card pin on your cellular phone. Do not secure your router using any ISP provided information. It should be unique.

SOURCE: Cannot go to 192.168.0.50 again after receiving internet connect

I would recommend going to the D-Link website, checking for a new version of firmware, and then upgrading. Set the device back to factory defaults, and rebuild the configuration from scratch afterward. That should resolve the issue.

I cannot reset my password


Im presuming its your internet connection password ?

Your Internet service provider (ISP) requires a username and password to access service features, including Internet and email.


Your ISP should provide this information when you set up your Internet service.


Typically, once you complete the setup and save the information, your router or modem transmits it behind the scenes when you try to access the Internet.


As a result, the username and password can be easily forgotten because they are not used daily.

If you reset your router or simply forget the password, gaining access to network resources and the Internet becomes a challenge.


Call your ISP's technical support department.

Many ISPs set a default username and password for their routers.


If you didn't change the username and password, your ISP can provide the original information.


Before you hang up, make sure the information is correct by entering it and trying to connect to the Internet.

If the information is incorrect and you still cannot get a connection, keep the information for later reference.


Call your router's manufacturer.

The manufacturer of your router sets a username and password prior to shipping the device to your ISP.

Look at the router for the contact information of the manufacturer.


Call their customer service or technical support department and ask for the default information.


Reset your router.

If you changed your router's username and password and cannot remember what you entered, you may have to reset the router.


Insert the resource CD into your computer's CD drive.

When the software installation program starts, search the screen for "Resources" or "Documentation" or "User Manual."


Click the documentation link and search the table of contents for resetting the router.

When you reset the router, the username and password return to the default set by your ISP or manufacturer.


Enter the information provided by your ISP or manufacturer.


Hope this helps.

Tenda router input eror


It's not the username and password from your ISP. If you try to access your router and you have not changed anything, use the following values:
username = admin
password = admin

Once in the router interface, you will have to configure the router for your DSL-modem (I guess it's DSL since Windstream does not produce cable modems.)
Here fill in the username and password your ISP provided you with.

Let me know if you have any questions.

My Netgear adsl router is not getting connected to Internet in pppOe mode ..


POPE configuration is logs into your ADSL system and connects to your ISP provider server to link , so one of the reason why it dosent is due to either password and username not correct. Log unto IP address of your Router and go to WAN configuration , Check your username and password and reset to the initial password and username your ISP provider gave you , when you signed up with them. Then apply changes , off your router for 1 min and then power it , then wait for the ADSL light on the router to be stable , connect to the IP address of your router again and "Volla" , it should be fine , if not , contact your ISP provider....

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!

MTNL INTERNET PROBLEM


Hello.

Since your ISP provided you a username and password when connecting to a broadband connection, you have to setup the router's "Internet Connection Type" to PPPoE then you need to enter the username and password that you are using to connect to your broadband.

Once you do that, the router will obtain an IP address from your ISP(MTNL) then it will give connections to your computers
