The administrator password prevents outsiders from accessing the settings on your modem. After creating a username and password, you will need to enter them every time you access the modem's online user interface located at http://192.168.0.1.
Note: If you are unable to access the modem controls using the admin username/password, you can reset your modem to factory defaults. After resetting, you can log in using the username (SSID) and passphrase (security key) printed on the sticker on your modem.
1. Connect a device, such as a computer or tablet, to the internet through WiFi or using an Ethernet cable connected to your modem.
2. Open a web browser and type http://192.168.0.1 into the web address field.
3. Log in to the modem's settings interface (Modem GUI) using your Admin Username and Admin Password. Note that these are different from your wireless network name (SSID) and WiFi password (security key).
