Re: [DSL] Reset my 7500, now in Routed Bridge mode??

I tried to reset my Frontier Netgear 7500, no access in wireless. I am on my Macbook Air. I tried password1 and I had to reset 3 times and still the same results, that even sucks. o.O. I liked that modem until I reset. I went back to my old Gigaset SX762 because I cannot use the newer one . Help?

The default key for the router is often found on the sticker on the underside of the router. Take a look there. If not, if you have another machine you can wire up with or if you have the Ethernet dongle for the MacBook air, wire up and log into »192.168.1.1/ using the username and password of:

admin/password
admin/admin

... and either use the default key as seen in the GUI or set your own with WPA2 security.

Go to the Verizon web site and download the 7500 Users Guide. It is explained on page 76 of that manual.

Here is the link:

You're welcome. I sure wish we had an option but that is part of the benefits of living in the boonies.

well i think the cable company would not be expanding if frontier did not do upgrades here but they are so the cable company expand there services i might try one of frontiers new plans or go to the cable company just depends on which company seems like they will hold good speeds compared to what the speed can get up to on both download and upload and latency to play good on xbox while 2 or 3 computers or on

Glad you noticed. It is true, I will most likely be leaving Frontier in a few months time. No, I'm not waiting on a contract to expire. I've been off contract for 6 years. I'm also not leaving them due to latency. Latency with them is pretty good to most places I'd say. Routing isn't always ideal but it's done on cost and most DCs peer where Frontier is peering.

The greener pasture is Fiber or DOCSIS service for both of the DSL connections I have (one will remain in service). Fiber is anticipated to be arriving very soon, whenever the company who started their build-out towards where I am decides to finish it up. DOCSIS service has improved a ton since it was available before the days of Frontier DSL (back when I still used dial-up), and it has some better value to it these days minus some annoying fees which can be worked around. Plus some outstanding issues with Frontier that they have been very slow to address are making me leave.
