How can I reset GNet GBB2060-XI ADSL modem?  I tried to push the reset button at the rear of the modem but I do not see a ip leased to my computer.  This modem has 1 x WAN port for ADSL connection and 1 x LAN port.

I want to logon to the admin page via browser or telnet but I do not know how to reset it.  I got this from my friend and want to know is it possible to reset all ip configuration in modem.

Usually this way will do it:
- turn off and unplug computer from modem
- turn off modem (I also unplug DSL line when just learning/tinkering with settings)
- turn on modem and wait for it to finish initializing
- press the reset button and hold in for 10 to 30 seconds (different modem say different time, but when the front lights go off and come back on, should do it. Wait for it to finish.
- Plug computer cable into modem
- turn on computer

you should now be able to open a browser and type in the modems IP addy to get to the login.
Make sure your system is set to Obtain IP Automatically, and the Browser is set to Never Dial

Hi,
no luck, I can see the 169.254.x.x ip address showing on my computer, I am wondering if the supplier disable the dhcp while they ship it out.  How can I crack it?

Strange.
Try turning off your firewall and AV (so they don't load on bootup), then reboot the computer.
What OS are you using?

This might take a while. This is the closest I have come to a user manual so far:

Thank you much.   : )

Don't forget to turn the firewall and AV back on.
