Hi, can someone please help me reset the password for my TP Link AC1200 modem. I’ve tried accessing http://192.168.1.1 but as I have no wifi due to modem reset it’s not letting me access this page?

So if I can’t access 192.168.1.1 to change my modem password does this mean the internet outage is still occurring in my area? I’m in Adelaide, 5041 and can’t access wifi as can’t get onto modem site to update password. It’s very frustrating!!

Hi Riezl

 

Yes, I had a tech guy ring me and he got me access to my modem and the internet is working on my laptop only but I am unable to connect to the WI-FI via my mobile or Foxtel. I've change the password and still nothing, the internet light on my modem keeps flashing.

Is the laptop directly connected to the modem via ethernet cable or Wi-Fi as well (same as the mobile)?

 

If so, we recommend having a read of this community article which may help you: Wi-Fi troubleshooting steps - No Internet/Connection
