the ethernet connection shown in there is probably just a leftover lease from when you had it connected. write down that username on the left and now we'll have to hunt down the password for that.

so click advanced setup at the top and look around for the pppoe username and password, if you can find it post some pics here and I'll try to help.

Well that's my User ID and my IP address I crossed off. To get into the admin of my network, that was different ID and password.

But anyway..........

I understand, but it's the password for the userid shown in the pic that we need, the ip listed underneath it is useless. we need the password.

once you have the id and password written down we can reset the router. BUT DON'T do it yet because your not going to be able to get online until you re-enter that info where it needs to go.

Yes in advanced setting it says PPP username. It has my User ID and the password is XXXXXXXXX out. I don't even know what the password is but I guess its already input. ?

Actually I might know the password......its 10 digits, I might know what it is.

Ok, if you place your cursor in that XXXXXXXX does the password appear? or is there a box to tick to reveal it?
send me further messages on pm because I've also been told not to turn the thread into a chat.

Like I said above, I have the ID but I'm not sure what the password is. It's X'd out. I MIGHT know it, but I"m not sure if I'm right.

No the User ID is an ID that I selected. It's not an email address.

The password won't show. I've been searching other menus to try to find the password. Can't find it.

I don't know.....I might know it but........
