If you don't have any special settings (port forwarding, ect) just set the modem back to factory defaults by go to or look in the back or bottom *depending on the brand of modem* is a tiny hole - you will need a straighted paper clip (or a cake tester) to push and hold **while modem is on and plugged in** for about 30-60 seconds. THat should put the modem back to factory defaults, that will be the factory user name and password that comes with the modem. For example Linksys is always admin (user name) and admin (password).

Hope this helps.

Both My Inspiron and linksys will not connect to my ISP. They say both are receiving an invalid IP address! I have used all trouble shooting techniques including trying to release and reset! Even went as...


Step 1: Plug the computer (ethernet wired) directly into the modem. Power cycle the modem and when all the light come on you should have internet. If not call your ISP to trouble shoot.

At this point we should be able to determine if it is a PPPoe connection (needs username and password to connect) or if it logs in automaticly.

Step 2: Plug the router back into the modem and the computer plugged wired (ethernet) to the router. Remove power from both the modem and the router. Plug the modem back in first, once all the lights are on plug in the router. Try to connect.

Step 3: Log in to the router via its IP address (normally 192.168.1.1), if no one has reset the user name password it should admin for both. If it has been reset, you will need to know what the user name and password are to continue.

Step 4: Under setup if in step 1 you found you needed PPPoe, then you need to set that under the setup tab. Make sure you use the user name and password provided to you by your ISP. If you dont need PPPoe then make sure this is set to obtain IP automaticly.

Step 5: save settings. Once the router restarts, try to connect again.

If these step do not work, let me know:

1. who is your ISP?
2. What modem do they use?
3. What is your IP address when plugged directly into the modem?
4. What is your IP address when plugged into the router?

I will be around for about 1 more hour, its 2PM central time now.

Good afternoon.I would like to request for a USERNAME and PASSWORD for our DSL at PLANTER'S TRADE CENTER,ACCT # 310408468 at R.V.VILLAFLORES ST, CENTRAL BRGY.,HILONGOS,LEYTE.Contact # 09177050664./...


If your DSL (Modem/Router) was provided by ISP or your telephone company you need to contact them for the default username and password.

If the DSL (Modem/Router) was purchased separately, then you need to look for the manual or check the DSL (modem/router) website for the documentation on how to reset and generate default username and password.

Hope this helps.

I have Netgear Wireless Router that has just quit. I removed the connection to tha computer and connect thr modem direct. It now works. Can this be fixed?


Hi,
If the internet is working fine , after connecting the modem directly. You have already pinpointed the problem with router. There nothing much you can do, except for resting the wireless router and in 90% of the cases it starts working fine after the reset.

You can use the following link to reset the router
Reset the Router
The link also has a video tutorial for reference.
* Username = admin
* Password = password * For older devices, password = 1234

In case the problem is not resolved after the reset, its better to replace the same.

Thanks for using Fixya

I need to find my WEP Key for my Arris TM602G/CT Cable Modem


Try typing 192.168.0.1 in your Internet browser. If you have access to the modem, this will give you your Settings page which you can use to update the password.
If you cannot access that page, press and hold the small reset button on the back of the modem with a small pen or paper clip for 60 seconds. This should return the modem to factory settings, and allow you to reset the password.

Want to axcess modem and router to check settings


Well a cable modem is always on and requires no username or password. So that's not a problem. The linksys router, unless you changed it, will have a web address of http://192.168.1.1. The default user/password is admin/admin. If you can't get into it with that, then there is a small reset button on the back of the router. You must hit the button with a pen for about 5 seconds, the try going back to the web address. You can then access and configure the router..... just make sure to power cycle the modem and router after configuration. Make sure the modem is ready (internet or ready light is on) before you turn the router back on.

I am not getting a signal on my laptop with the netgear box. the model # is wgr614. I am hard wired into my modem now. I couldn't remember my security password so I pushed the reset button on the back. ...


When you press the reset button on your router, you essentially erase all of the settings back to factory defaults. You will have to set up your router as if youre connecting it for the first time. You need the default gateway IP address (this is needed to directly access the router itself), and information based on your internet connection type (cable modem or DSL). If you use a DSL modem, you may need your username and password (this should have been provided for you when you got your service; call your provider's customer service if you dont have it). The setup CD that came with your router can (and most times will) help you with setting up your router. Newer setup CDs do most of the work for you. Follow the CDs instructions and refer to the owners manual for more info.
