I installed this modem/router, but cannot find any instructions as to
how to turn the wireless on & off, or any other wireless settings.
Anyone have a suggestion?
Quick setup instructions say to connect to http://192.168.0.1 , but mine
will not connect to it.
Here's the unit I have:
Thanks in advance.
Assuming your OS is Windows and you connected Ethernet(CAT5)
cable to the router. Did you hit reset button on router?
Wait until it cycles thru and come up ready.
Can you ping that ip address? If so do a command ipconfig /all
Can you see gateway address is 188.8.131.52? under the heading
Ethernet adapter wired? If not do a command
ipconfig /renew, do you see the address? The gateway address
better be 192.168.x.x which you should use. If the router is not
brand new, default gateway address could be changed by previous owner.
You have to use that changed one, always 192.168.x.x after finding it
and get access to router you can change it to what you want but always
Often times modem attached routers are not good performers. Most people
put it into bridge mode and hook up their own router. Also if bridge
mode is not available, can do same thing using DMZ of your own
router.Also don't forget to clear the browser cache just to be sure.

My router, that is done through the same IP address you posted above. Did
it work then? Or maybe you used some settup software that ran on the PC
to set it up so you didn't use that IP address method?
What happens when you just put that IP address into the browser address?
I think that's your only option for getting into it to turn the radio off
or to do anything else. I also assume said router is currently working
on that PC, thereby proving it's not a connectivity issue?
Only other thing I can think of is any antivirus or similar software
running that might be blocking you?
Is it possible to connect using a cable? You had better be able
to do that, otherwise disabling the wireless will give you a
useless piece of plastic.
Shut down both modem and your computer. Turn on modem and allow
it to sync. Then turn on the computer. It ought to find the modem
Using Google, I found this:
Here is where you disable the wireless.
You're probably right. Verizon is only pushing FIOS here now - probably
stopped selling DSL in this area several years ago. What is called on
ebay as "old new". No date or date codes on this one and no instructions
in the box.
