Firstly... avoid showing your SSID (eircom-123456789) here, as the WEP key can be reverse engineered from the SSID.

To change your SSID, connect your router to your PC with an ethernet cable, go to your web browser (Intenet Explorer, Forefox, etc) and type 192.168.1.254, and press return.

This will open the control panel for the router.
Select 'EXPERT MODE' from the menu on the right, and accept the warning prompt. Then click on 'CONNECTION' and the 'WIRELESS' on the menu on the right.

In the main window you can then change the SSID for your network.

You can also change some of the other options in this window such as enabling closed mode, change security protocol, password, etc.

Ratrideen,

I'm not entirely sure what you are saying the problem is. Is it that you can't access the Internet from your PC once the netopia router is hooked up? If this is the case check your IP setting on the PC. The following documentation from the Netopia site should help.

Good luck.

Netopia 3347nwg wifi locked!!!


Hello michael,

The lock you see indicates that the network you are trying to connect to requires a password for authentication.

You can access your ipod settings and enter the credentials by following the below steps:

1- First connect to your closed Wi-Fi network
2- Choose Wi-Fi, then tap Other and enter the network name.
3- Choose Security, tap the type of security the network uses, and enter the password.

This should be it.

Have a good day.

Netopia 2247NWG for smarttelecom


Sorry if my writing is not clear I dont have best english.
If you move your router from eircom to smartelecom you have to change security protocol from "chap" eircom to "pap" smarttelecom.
Now Do this few steps.
Go to start menu on windows find and click run.
type: cmd and press ok
When you will see black screen that will be command prompt.
Now you have to type your defaul ip adress. To check your defaul ip adress type ipconfig in command prompt and press enter.
Default Gateway is your default ip adress. Now when you know your ip type in command prompt:
telnet yourip 23 and press enter, for example:
telnet 192.168.1.254 23
If you didnt setup any password to login to the router you will be loged automaticly and you will see "Netopia-2000/18861188>
But if you have setuped login and password to your router you have to first type your login and press enter,then password and press enter to have acces.
next is easy type:
configure and press enter
ppp and press enter
set and press enter
now you have to pressing enter about till you will see line:
option <chap-only> [ off : on : pap-only : chap-only ]:
on this line type pap-only and press enter
now start pressing enter till you see:
Netopia-2000/18861188 <ppp>>>
then type save and press enter.
When you see line:
Configuration data saved you can close command prompt window.
From this moment your router will be work with smarttelecom.

Unlock netopia 2247 router


If your talking about the password for the router user interface that is not working that resetting it again using a pen or a paper clip just press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds then that should bring your router to its default settings with the default username and password.
