Hey guys, I don't remember what i've done lately but I cannot access my router config page anymore which is located in http://10.0.0.2/ . But I still can access the internet w/o any problem... And yes, only the automatic detect settings is ticked on the LAN settings...

Its a GVC ADSL Router I bought some months ago. I checked the cable and stuff but its all ok. I pinged the 10.0.0.2 and 100% recieved.


I did a ipconfig /all and here is the result...

Windows IP Configuration

I see nothing changes with all those stuff o.o Maybe was it because of the httpd service for my router config page? But i don't seem to find it anywhere in the Services list this time... I remember seeing something like that in the list be4 ( or mayb i remembered it wrong ._.')

Can someone help me find out wat's wrong with my router now? I wanna access to its config webpage badly... Thanks a ton...

it sounds like your http server on the router is tuened off.
console into the router and see if that is the trouble.

I do not know GVC router (what is the model number?), but if you had previously accessed it through browser, I would guess that you are getting problems owing to the following:
1) Maybe you've installed or configured an anti-popup that may be blocking a logon screen to access your router;
2) The web access to your router is not through standard http port 80, but other port, like 8080.

With regards to console, there are two ways:
1) Through a serial port (requires a RS232 cable hooking up a COM port in your PC and the serial port on your router);
2) Telnet into your router IP address.
Either way you will access the a command line interface or a menu interface.

if you cant figure out how to get into it, put a ball point pen into the reset button in the back, and start over

I managed to telnet into it, but I don't know what the default password is... It's not the same one as the password used on the 10.0.0.2 webpage... And I think this modem used the Conexant chip, anybody know what the default password may be? or I can never get into it again ._.

And its troublesome to reset it again, cos I lost the info on how to set it up to connect to my ISP... that's why we have this topic going on ;)

Many manufacturer use no password at all or "easy" combinations like "1234" or "abcd", but I am just guessing...it would be a lot easier if you could tell what is the model or SKU# of your ADSL router.

According to the manual for the router the defaults are
for adminstrator:
username - admin
p/w - epicrouter

for non administrator
username - user
p/w - password

if the defaults do not work then you need to reset the router. i didnot read the whole manual but the prooxess should be in there.

this is the link for the MFG website.
http://www.gvculy.com.tw/driver.asp

you need to d/l the driver zip file which contains the user manual.
