Trying to log into my Horizon Modem to change settings

As per the title.

I followed these steps, http://support.upc.ie/...horizon-tv-hd%2B-box


However, I can't log in. It's asking for a username and password. I've tried my UPC log in details but it's not working. 

Any suggestions?

your trying to log into your Horizon box you must use a wired connection.


To change the wireless settings on your Horizon TV HD+ box, simply:
  • Connect an ethernet cable to the back of your Horizon TV HD+ box.
  • Connect the other end of the cable to your laptop / pc / mac
  • Open an internet explorer page and in the address bar type gwlogin.net
[*]
You will now be presented with the modem login screen
  • Simply enter admin as the username and password
  • Click on the Wireless settings tab and you will now be able to adjust the wireless settings listed below:
  1. SSID - network name
  2. Password
  3. Wireless channel
[*]
Note: Keep the details of your new wireless network name and password safe as we do not keep a record of your wireless network details.

Hi BaZmO*,

Did you manage to login to the Horizon router to access the settings? 

Thanks, Brian F
