a) start Internet Explorer
b) type http://192.168.1.254 <---- READ YOUR MODEM INSTRUCTIONS CAUSE SOMETIMES IT MAY BE DIFFERENT CODING
c) then you should be able to communicate with your modem.
d) key in your user name and password
i tried doing that, but error message appears - cannot find server. of course, i used the IP address from the manual
usually there should be some sort of dialog box that asks you for username and password one wor.... your modem very strange.
if you followed the manual, and still cannot "communicate" with the modem, I suggest you change the modem with telekom. This would take another 2 to 3weeks and it's a real bummer. I experienced something like that once too.
when you said type in the browser, i just need to key in the IP address in a new window right? 192.168.1.1. error message in the new window.
Someone may have set your modem (maybe not fresh new unit?) to use a different Lan IP address, and/or disabled the DHCP server, in which case you will get that error message in your browser. Try to reset your modem back to factory default (can you find the hard reset button?). That should make 192.168.1.1 the correct default address again and the modem's DHCP server will be able assign your network port the address 192.168.1.2 so that you can communicate with the modem.
There's no need to use any CD to install an ADSL moderm.
realised that i didnt change the computer IP properties before typing the IP address in the browser. now have done that, managed to get the browser to open, but my modem still doesnt work!
what's wrong!?! am literally tearing my hair out!
Ok .... need to determine if your router is actually connected to the pc first before any other test...
What is the model of your router....DB102..by Riger..?
If it's DB102 ...is the 'PC' green colour led light up steady..?
...................is the 'LINK' orange colour led light up steady...?
yes browser opens with that IP address, but the link light on my modem is still blinking. it shouldnt be blinking if its configured, that's what i am told
The DSL light should be stable after a period of blinks to show its locked in or synched.
I hope you've also installed a DSL filter in line with your house phone (if you have one). Some modems may not synch the DSL if there's no inline filter which there's 2 sockets, one to modem, one to phone.
yes its DB102 and the link orange light blinks. PC light steady green
Hmmmmm....blinking orange LINK led is not good....it basically says that your router is not talking to tmnet's modem at tm's exchange...ie. No signal or in handshaking mode....
Nevertheless the following should still be able to be carried out to determine the integrity of the pc to router interconnection...
Now the pc ethernet cabling to the router seems ok....indicated by the PC green led.
Next is to get the pc to talk to the router ....can just type the router's IP with your IE browser with 192.168.1.1 without the www or http in front.
If the browser respond with a reply asking for user name n password....it's a good sign.
