What router are you using, and what error message/s are you receiving whilst acccessing the router.

Have you tried turning off and on the router, A reset.

What steps have you taken to try and resolve the issue/s prior to posting.

Router is EchoLife HG520s which I've had for some time but seems to function ok

However I'm experiencing slow connectivity and am trying to compile info to submit for investigation so , yes I've been rebooting router as part of my trying to find faster speeds

Only steps taken to date is calls to Broadband support and didn't get anywhere

Cheers Ethermax

error message is as follows... :-

"The user name or password you entered for this area on 192.168.1.1:80 was incorrect. Make sure you’re entering them correctly, and then try again."

You can try a factory reset by pressing the recessed reset button for aprox 15-20 seconds then let it reboot then try accessing the router by using the default user name and password both admin as you already know (only mentioned for other readers of the thread)

Here is a copy of the HG520s user manual incase you or others need it for reference.

I'm a bit wary about any settings that I might lose by returning to Factory default

Having said that I guess its a good place to start.... seem to recall that Customer/Broadband support set something a few years ago ... dammit here I go

Be in touch to report progress

Well yes .... & no

I've lost all my security settings but good news I can access the 192.168.1.1/ (without seemingly needing to use either 'admin'

So now I can access the data I've been seeking and now need to re-configure the name & security settings I'd created at day one)

I can't actually recall how to do that but will have a think

Thanks

To re-configure the name and security settings

See Chapter 5.2 Changing the Administrator Password of the
HG520s

The Web manager of the HG520s provides the password
protection function to prevent illegal users from changing the
configuration of the HG520s. The username and the password of the
HG520s are configured by default. To change the administrator
password, follow the steps:
(1) Log in to the Web configuration page of the HG520s. For the
procedure, refer to 2.2 (4)"2.3 Establishing Configuration
Environment."
(2) Select Tools > System Management in the navigation tree
to display the system management configuration page.
(3) Find the username in the configuration page of system
management. Click the corresponding editing icon to display
the password configuration page.
(4) Enter the new password in the password configuration page.
Click Submit.

You are welcome

Let us know investigation goes

A few things you can try (you will mos prob know most if not all)

1. Change microfilter
2. Change Ethernet cable
3. Unplug everything including your phone and re-plug in 1 item at a time to see if any of your equiptment is interfering.
4. Plug you router into the test socket with the microfilter

hope this helps you and other readers

Hi ethermax,

Glad to hear the you have managed to access your router :)

The errored seconds count has been very high which is probably the cause of the poor performance - Our DLM system change your profile from 9db to 12db yesterday because of the high errored seconds count and since then your connection seems much better - have you noiticed any improvement?
