How do I check my MODEM settings through my Nighthawk M60 MESH router?

I know how to log in and use the web-based Nighthawk configuration utility to see my ROUTER settings.  How do I check my MODEM settings?

Glad you got it working. Please mark your thread as solved so others will know. Be sure to save off a back up configuration to file for safe keeping. Saves time if a reset is needed.

What specific brand name and model number modem do you have?  (Look on the label)

 

There is usually not a lot of user configurable settings on a modem only device.

It's a CenturyLink C3000Z (Zyxel modem/router combo), but I'm pretty sure I have the modem bridged so I can use the Nighthawk mesh router. Just wanted to confirm modem settings.

A good place to start is with the OEM.

Re: How do I check my MODEM settings through my Nighthawk M60 MESH router?

Unfortunately, when I:

Open a web browser and type http://192.168.0.1 into the web address field
It fails to load.
When I type http:\\192.168.1.1 into my browser, I get the Nighthawk user interface.
Is it not possible then to get to the MODEM interface since the modem is bridged?

Re: How do I check my MODEM settings through my Nighthawk M60 MESH router?

I'd ask the ISP if this is the case if there modem IS bridged, can it's web page be access. I remember some DSL gateways from years ago that when bridged were not accessible with the web page since it was in bridge mode. They had to be factory reset to get back to there web pages. Possible same with this modem you have.


If it's in bridge mode and you have the MR working as your router, then you should be ok and would not need to do anything to the modem while in bridge mode. Unless you need to troubleshoot something.

Now, when I try to log into http://192.168.1.1, I get an error:

Router Password Reset

 

Your Device is disabled, Please try again in 5 minutes.

We can help you reset your router's admin password. You need your router's serial number, which can be found on the router label. Enter your router's serial number in the field and click the Continue button.

Enter the router's Serial Number

 

I have entered the router (Nighthawk) serial number and "successfully" reset the password 3 times.  Still when I try to log in, I get the same error.

HELP!

Re: How do I check my MODEM settings through my Nighthawk M60 MESH router?

By default, your M60 MESH router will have the address http://192.168.1.1.

 

Your unnamed modem will have a different IP address, but your router probably won't grant you access to it.

 

In my case, I have to isolate my DM200 from the router network and feed in its own internal IP address.

 

As @FURRYe38 suggested, you should be able to consult the modem's manual for details on how to access it when it is in bridge mode.

 

It might also help if you explained why you want to get into the modem. As you will see from the replies above, you should not need to do this in normal operation.

Don't know what happened.  Got through to 192.168.1.1 with my new password.  Thanks everybody.
