Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I recently bought a refurbished 2wire 2700hg router. When i run the setup wizard i am prompted to enter a "system password". I don't know what this is! When i click the "i forgot my password" link i am told i can obtain a temporary password from tech support. The only number i can find for tech support is in the US and as i am from the UK i don't fancy running up a huge phone bill trying to sort out this problem. Is there a UK based tech support centre I can call or is there another way I can reset the system password without using a temporary password?

* Hold down the reset button on the back for 30+ seconds.

* Upon releasing the reset button, the router resets itself to factory settings.
* Connect a computer to the 2700HG-B and browse to the URL http://192.168.1.254/
* Enter a new password, confirm it and enter a password hint at the bottom of the page, in case you forget the password.

* At this stage you might receive a "Page Not Found" error, but the password appears to be set successfully.
* ***************************
* To continue, manually browse to the url http://192.168.1.254

* Home Page (summary)
* Run System Setup Wizard

I bought a 2wire 2701HG-B from an individual. How


You will have to login to your modem's configuration panel. To access this, you will have to use a computer which is connected to the router via an Ethernet (CAT5) cable. Once you are at such a computer, go to Start>All Programs>Accessories>Command Prompt (Or just go to Start>Run, type in: cmd
then press OK).

After Command Prompt loads, type in: ipconfig
Now press the ENTER key on your keyboard to execute the command. A list should be returned. You will want to locate the IP address associated with the, "Default Gateway." This is demonstrated in the screenshot located here.

Afterward open up your Internet browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc...) and type the IP address associated with the default gateway into the address bar. In the case of our previous example, you would type, "192.168.1.254" into the address bar (without the quotes and without adding www. or .com). Then press enter to visit the page. Your modem's configuration page should appear. You will want to click the link reading, "Run System Setup Wizard."

Afterward you might be asked to provide a password. If you don't have or know your password, try the default of blank. If that doesn't work you will have to call AT&T technical support for assistance in resetting the password.

Once you have reached the setup wizard you should be able to configure the modem to include the new registration information.

Let me know if I can assist you with anything else.
