Hi all, I've just got 10meg magnet, but I'm looking to change the SSID and the password. Is there some easy configuration to get into the router?

eg: With a DLink router, its 192.168.0.1, username: admin. password: <blank>

I've had a look at one of these, and there's seems to be almost nothing you can change on them, they're completely locked down, and closer to a modem with extras rather than a full router.

Do an IPCONFIG in the command line and your will get your default getway which will be the router open it in your webbrowser as you would with the dlink, then do some Google work on default passwords

Cheers man, good suggestion, but when I get the default gateway i.p, I can't do anything with it. No page displays in the browser, tried mapping to it by doing a start->run, no joy there either

Magnet most likely do what Smart do to their modems, neuter them to within an inch of their life so as to cut down on the PEBTAC errors. Have been questioning Smart continuously about this.

Hi, just got a 24mb magnet line, running at 1.5mb though, was going to try and have a look at hte router configuration to see if something could some how be slowing it down but seems you cant? Anyone know of a way to access the settings also anyone know what settings i need to change other than putting a user name and password in if i was to use another router?

You just need to plug the Telsey box into a wireless router through the WAN or Internet Connection port on your router, not the LAN connection.

Then when you connect to and access your router admin page in the normal way, usually 192.168.2.1 in a browser, you can see it says "connected". It picks up the internet connection as if it was a modem plugged into a router. You do need the router though, cant access the magnet box directly at all.

Once you have your router and magnet box working together (which doesnt even require a username or password, just plug it into your router), you can then hook up ethernet hard drives and NAS or DAS boxes to the router and access them normally through your router IP instead of the magnet IP which is something like 87.198.58.*

Make sure you connect to your router and not the magnet box when searching for networks wirelessly and in some cases you might need to remove the magnet preset from the preferred list so it automatically connects to your spare router instead of the magnet box.

Same issue here. I have Magnet, works great but would like to change the SSID and Password, any suggestions. Normally you just enter the Default Gateway into browser and bob's your uncle. But can't seem to get it up.

Great speeds by the way Magnet.

The routers are set up as plug and play so any modifications need to be done with the assistance of technical support.

If you like you can PM me your details and I can get the guys to call you.

you prob don’t need this info now but anyway, what I did was connected the netopia Router to the magnet disable the DSL port on the netopia and connected them together by using the crossover cable, then configured the netopia with the dns of the magnet box and used the dhcp on the netopia to give my pc a static address if you want more help pm me

sorry for delay

Hi,
I recently signed up to magnet and have to say it's great.
I am having a problem trying to stream to ps3, archos etc
I am getting upnp not available error on ps3
as the telsey seems toene locked down and only o modem I can't port forward
I rang magnet who basically said there is nothing I can do
I have a dlink wireless router at home and someone said can plug this into the telsey
I tried it and it's failing to get an ip address
I assume I need to enter some settings to the dlink via config page
could someone help me out as I haven't a clue what to enter where?
Cheers
