    I run my internet through a Zoom router, the problem is every time I have a power cut I can't get back onto t'internet untill my little brother resets the settings. A process which I have tried to undestand but failed.

    Is there anyway I can access the settings for the router so I can copy down all the relevent things that make it work now on paper so I can reset it myself.

    Thanks all.

    In the instruction manual it should have a number you can type into your web browser to access the settings...

    Most are 192.168.100.1 as default but yours may be different so just check also you might need a username and password to access the settings the default should be in the instruction manual but your brother may have changed it

    I have a number that opens a page on my browser. If that is the right one will it muck the settings up if I open it and have a peak!

    I don't want to touch it at the moment as it all works!:D

    Why is this thread still here?

    The ZOOM ADSL X# series of modem routers by default, are accessible at:
    http://10.0.0.2
    Default User Name: admin
    Default Password: zoomadsl

    The quickest way and first step to solve most issues is to reboot, which will reset your flashed settings.
    Just remove the power cord from the back for 30 seconds. Short power glitches occasionally leave the routers in a scrambled state.
    Reboot your modem, then your computer.

    Best practice is to purchase a UPS and a good surge protector to put between your UPS and computer gear. (Yes UPS claim to be surge protectors too, but they do a really bad job of surge protection.)

    These modem / routers will not forget the settings you have changed provided that you:
    1. "Save Changes" and 2. "Write Settings to Flash"

    Simply visiting the Zoom Configuration Manager page at the above referenced (local) URL will not change anything in the router.
    The only changes that can happen are those you consciously choose to make and commit... {Save & Flash]
    (Changes Do Not happen by looking / peaking.)

    If you have sharing activated you are probably tripping the firewall as macs have an overactive bonjour advertising issue.

    Try turning off all shares and then hook up.

    Finicky things, them there zoomers.

    PS... I forgot to mention

    You might be pissing off your ISP too, in which case they are shutting you down.

    AT&T for example has issues with modems they don't support and make your life hell until you buy one of their very insecure crappy ones that they and everybody else can hack.
