What is the default login details for the router?
(if you didn’t change the details in the setup wizard)
Username: admin Password: admin
Please note: it is a security risk to leave the default password as admin & admin.
It is highly recommended to set your own unique password.
I only received 1 LAN cable in the box but I need 2 to do the setup. Am I missing a cable?
No. The Yellow LAN cable supplied with your router is to connect your computer/laptop to the router during setup. The ONT device should have came with a LAN cable for connecting it to the Blue WAN port on the back of the router. If you can’t find a second LAN cable to connect your router to your laptop for the setup, you will need to do the setup over Wi-Fi. Please check step 03 for more details.
What if the hardware connection keeps failing on step 1?
Please contact your ISP and verify that your ONT device and Fibre line is active
I did the setup over Wi-Fi but got disconnected on step 3 of the wizard. What do I do now?
If you changed your Wi-Fi username and password: Open your Wi-Fi settings on the device you used to setup the router. Select the new Wi-Fi name you set from the list of available networks and enter the password. Once connected reopen the webpage at 10.0.0.2 to complete the setup.
If you changed only your Wi-Fi password: Open your Wi-Fi settings on the device you used to setup the router. Select the router’s Wi-Fi name and forget the network. Now reselect your router’s Wi-Fi name and type in the new Wi-Fi password you set on step 3 of the wizard. Once connected reopen the webpage at 10.0.0.2 to complete the setup.
What do I do if while in the Router web interface my browser locks up / goes white / says undefined?
