Re: Router log in

To log into the router you don't use your TalkTalk username and password. The login name is 'admin' and the default password is also 'admin'.

Re: Router log in

I've just received my HG533 router, after setting it up I tried to access thee router & couldn't get on. I rang up tech support & after him eventually understanding what I wanted & trying a couple of things I managed to get onto the router (it was admin - admin :smileysurprised: must have been finger trouble) I told him I wanted access to the router amongst other things to change the login password. He informed me I shouldn't change this :smileymad: in case I have problems in the future it couldn't be accessed :smileymad::smileymad: I have always altered the default setting, I know I have been able to access other routers using the default setting. He said my router was secure & can only be accessed by someone inside my house :smileymad::smileymad::smileymad:. Surely if I leave my user name & password to the default then why bother having any password.
