Hi, just recieved my new wifi modem, the AC800S. i'm having problems logging in to it using http://Optus.AC800S as the instructions say, to change the password. Its the deivce manager i'm trying to get into. any help please would be appreciated as the factory set password is pretty soft.
try going to 192.168.0.1 in your browser. That's the default for most modems so hopefully it works for the Optus one as well. Just type it in where you'd normally put something like google.com
For this device it is
How do I know? - I have this device 🙂
As Paddylee said, the IP 192.168.1.1 is the correct address.
It works both for connected by wifi and usb. usb bypasses the need to have the wifi password.
Also to use the cname, try:
note the lowercase and trailing /
On subsequent visits you won't need the trailing / but until the first connection is made, modern browsers are searching for the field instead of treating as a hostname or cname.
