Cannot login to 192.168.1.1

Hi

 

A friend gave me their old wireless router as mine is broken. I have plugged it in and it connects automatically to the internet using the ethernet cable.

 

I am trying to login to the router via 192.168.1.1 but it won't work. It asks for my username and password which is admin/admin according to the label on the router (I have reset it). It just keeps asking for the login details and doesn't accept admin/admin. I've tried turning off my firewall,checking the default gateway using command prompt, nothing seems to be working. I need to get into the settings to setup the wireless network.

 

The modem was originally from Slingshot, but I don't see how that would be a problem as it is letting me use the internet via the ethernet cable and my vodafone broadband, just won't let me login to setup the wireless.

 

Thanks

 

Jess

You mentioned that the modem was from slingshot. As far as I know slingshot modems are NetComm. For NetComm routers to access the modem you just have to use admin for both username and password. If admin doesn't work, you can try the last 6 digits of your router's MAC address as the password - just make sure that you enter the MAC address in lower-case.

The MAC address can be found at the bottom of your modem.

Thanks, I had tried that previously but did it in uppercase which didn't work. I'm happy to say lowercase did the job! Thanks for your help Smiley Happy
