What type of internet you have (Dsl, Cable, T-1,etc..)
I have my wireless password, but it's a random string of numbers. I would like to change it to something more easily memorized.
I'm a bit fuzzy on the difference between a modem and router, but I have seen from my searches on the internet that Arris only makes modems. I thought a router was necessary for Wi-Fi, but I don't see anything else connected to the modem, and I'm definitely using Wi-Fi.
I used ipconfig in the command prompt to find that the default gateway is 192.168.2.1, but I can't log in from that page. I have tried several default passwords: admin, administrator, 0, 1234, and leaving it blank. None work. I have also tried resetting the modem, and still none of them work.
Is the default password different? If someone else in the house changed the password (no one remembers doing so, and it seems unlikely since the network name and passphrase are defaults), is there a way to reset it? Is there another way to change the Wi-Fi password without using this screen?
I ran the MiniToolBox, but it's giving me results for the network I use in my dorm. I'm trying to work with the one I use at home (I am currently at home).
