New Actiontec T2200M, can't get in.

Hi All

I just got this upgrade the other day and can't seem to get into it. It comes already in bridge mode for port 1 of the 10/100 and it works great!

I just can't figure out how to get into it to change the master password and turn off anything I'm not using.

I've tried and because my subnet isn't 192.168.1 I changed one computer to assigned IP so I could make the mask

All I get are time out errors.

I have only found the manual for the T2200H not M. The difference seems to be that the H has wireless built in and no giga port.

Has anyone found a way into these yet?

Since it's in Bridge mode, you may want to try plugging a cable in directly to port 2, 3, or 4. Then you shouldn't have an issue accessing the Admin page.

Technically you should be fine with that subnet mask, but maybe something else is acting up there

Thanks BGY11

I'll set up the submask again today and try the other ports with a scanning utility, maybe I can find the Admin page that way.

I did call Telus yesterday and they told me that everything else is turned off and they don't understand why I would want into the admin page... typical head up your ass response, I don't know why I expected different.

I'd really like to get in and turn off the automatic update flag so that Telus can't flash it without my consent.

OK, I give up.

I tried all sorts of different combinations but I can't find an Admin page for this model. I scanned all addresses from to

I DID find that all four ports are bridged! There is a GigE port and three 10/100 ports labelled 1,2,3. All of these are in bridge mode, I have a dedicated IP, assigned to the MAC address of my Unix server, and all four ports will give my firewall the correct IP.

My conclusion is that this modem is nothing more than four bridged ports with no wireless, no DHCP, no DNS and no Admin page.

It's kind of nice that there isn't a lot of other junk that I don't need running but it's a little disconcerting that I'm locked out.

If you connect 2 routers WAN ports to 2 of these bridged ports, do you get 2 separate IP addresses?

Do you have Optik TV?
If yes, are the TV box connected to the other bridged ports?
From the Optik box, you can find out the IP of the Optik box and the gateway box.

With the T2200M in a default factory configuration, a PC connected to the T2200M via Ethernet and set with an IP address between and inclusive with subnet mask, can access the GUI with a web browser pointed towards . The user must login using the username “Admin” and the password that is printed on the label on the underside of the modem.
