Just installed a new Windstream Sagmcom 1704. I am having trouble configuring the device. When I type in the IP address xxx.xxx.254.254 (dont remember the other numbers), I get a pop-up box requesting a username and password. I input my Windsteam username and password and it does not work. It takes to to a screen that says "forbidden". Am I using the right username and password or is there another default username and password I need to us to access the modem/router config? Please help.
The username/password prompt you are seeing is the login required to access the 1704's interface and settings. That username and password, be default, are both "admin". -JV -- We're here to help! email@example.com
