its not normally https://
unless your model is differant
just http://ip:8080
By the way dont allow everyone access, just the remote ip range you are at so no one but you at that remote address can access.

You may have a dynamic ip address, try to find out off your isp as if this is the case you may need to try whatever user name they have given you ie:

http://username.isp.com:8080

Its all dependant on the ip your router is at, while at a remote site, ask someone behind the router to go to
http://whatismyip.com

get them to tell you what the ip address is then try that ip address with
:8080 on the end

Thanks rpartington, according to my router configuration page, it says that I should use https://ipaddress:8080 and not http://ipaddress:8080.........anyway, I tried both with no luck....my isp is optimum online from cablevision, I've called them and they told me that I have a dynamic ip and i can not get a static ip assigned to me, and that whatever router i use should be conffigured for dinamic DNS...they did not mention anything about username....should i ask for this??..i will not allow everyone access once i know it is working..for now i have everyone access just to see if i can stablish connectivity or even try to ping  that ip....i will try the http://whatis myisp.com to make sure that the ip address matches what the router is telling me to use...any more sugggestions? Thanks so much

Could be that where ever you are personnaly situated does not allow you personnaly to browse to https://
websites, thats a bit hard to believe mind, easy to check out though by going to your online bank account etc if you can get to it then you can use https:// by this I mean from where ever you are trying to get to the router from.

I would go with either trying
www.whatismyip.com
yourself from behind the router to find the ip, not a really good idea as the ip address will more than likely of changed by the time you drive to the remote site, or get a colleague to do it whilst on the tel to them whilst you are at the remote site and get them to tell you what ip they see and try that with https://blablabla:8080

The isp is confused when they say you should configure the router to use dynamic ip as that is for the router to distribute to the clients behind it, not for you to manage the router externally.

I found the solution, after calling NEtgear Techical Support they told me I have to hceck an option in the conofigration page for the router "allow pings"...after doing this it worked perfectly. Thanks for your help

In the world of WAN, QoS is a pretty important topic for most, if not all, networks. Some WAN technologies have QoS mechanisms built in, but others, such as some L2 WAN's, don't have QoS control in the provider cloud.
