I did a 30,30,30 reset on the device and reset the device on the online configuration page.  Now I don't have a wireless signal and there is not a "Wireless" or "Wi-Fi" option available in the online configuration page.  The old user id and password for the page are still working, but the default password, "admin" takes me to a blank page.

 

I did all of this bc my internet speed is less than 50% of what it should be.  The local service provider said that I should download the latest firmware (this device is no longer supported) and set up security (I live in the country where others can't pick up my signal so haven't worried about this bc I am busy) as that sometimes improves speed.  The technician I talked to said that my device, despite being old, was capable of delivering the 50 Mbps I should be receiving and that while purchasing a newer router would help, it wasn't exactly necessary.  While consume more if it isn't necessary?

 

Now, I am in a pickle to say the least.  Please, somebody help!  Thanks!

Also, I believe my friend, when he set up the modem several years ago reprogrammed the device to run "openwrt" due to the device no longer being supported.
