    Default ADSL Modem/WiFi Router --> WiFi Router/Switch

    Hi,
    Till last month end, I had BSNL Broadband. Used - NETGEAR ADSL Modem / Wifi Router for accessing Internet. Because of poor service by BSNL, I surrendered this connection and acquired Wi5 FIXED Wireless connection.
    I used to access and administer the Modem to my whims and fancies !! Full control over my Modem and who access it.

    I did not want to buy a new Wireless Router for this connection. So I managed to convert my ADSL Modem into a simple Wifi Router.

    Now, I am unable to access the Modem through normal procedure. How to access my modem now?
    How to identify the IP Address of the Modem through my PC/Laptop?

    Any Idea?

    Since you mentioned that you are using your ADSL modem as the router (bridged mode I suppose), all you need to do to access it is to get to know the default gateway.

    Go to command prompt, (Start->Run. Type "cmd" here, click okay)
    Once the black screen with the scripts comes, type "ipconfig", and enter.
    You will see "Default Gateway : 192.168.1.1" (This number is assumed). Note down this number, and copy this in the address bar of Internet Explorer/Chrome, and press enter.

    You should now be able to see the routers configuration page.

    Cheers!
    Nevin.

    Just connect the LAN cable from the modem to any of the 4 ports (for connecting PC's). Prior to this configure the ADSL modem as bridged mode in the settings.
