How are you connecting to the Internet? USB Router, Wireless or via Ethernet Cable and cable router? Who is your ISP?

You usually access it by typing something like 192.168.1.1 into explorer. The actual IP address may be on the back of the modem or in the manual. There are usually then two passwords typically Admin and Admin.

Try this first to see if you can access the main settings.

I have several people who are experiencing problems with Orange. Check with them to find out if your exchange is having a problem. Otherwise follow the suggestions from Halmer for the moment.
