Forgot my Westell modem IP address I changed my Westell c90-610015-06 default IP address a few years back, and stupidly did not write down the new IP address. Now I need to access the modem configuration and have no way to do it, short of resetting the modem, which will reset the IP back to its default of 192.168.1.1. This is a last resort for me because Verizon had made other config changes on the modem which I don't want to lose.
Does anyone know a way to retrieve the admin IP address on this Westell modem?
If you are able to connect to the internet using that modem, then you are all set.
On Windows, use: ipconfig /all
and check the internet gateway IP address. That will be the address of your 6100 modem/router.
AT&T Uverse; Zyxel NBG334W router (behind the 2wire gateway); openSuSE 12.1; firefox 8.0
I have a router between my modem and LAN, and ipconfig /all shows the default gateway IP address as the IP address of my router. There is no internet gateway listed.
The status page of the router should list a ip address, default gateway and dns ip's post that info
The router doesn't list the modem IP address on its status page, or any other page that I can tell.
It's an ancient Linksys BEFSR81, which doesn't show that info.
What it does show is:
(MAC Address: xx-xx-xx-xx-xx)
IP Address: 192.168.1.44
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
DHCP server: Enabled
(MAC Address: xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx)
IP Address: [my public ip addr]
Note i've obscured my mac addresses and public ip.
Thanks for any help!

There is a utility called angry ip scanner that can be used to discover the ip address of the westell
You'll need to connect the westell directly to the computer that runs the utility
Fantastic, thanks for the pointer wayjac.
I will run the tool as soon as I can connect directly to the westell modem.
I appreciate the help and will post the results.
If you're still stuck, you could try going over to GRC.com and selecting "shieldsUp". It'll show you the address it' seeing.
