Cable Modem : Login, Setting User Password & Restoring Defaults

This cable modem's address: 192.168.100.1 Username: admin Password: cableroot

In this video I'll show you how I Login to a Cable Modem, set a custom User Password and restore the default Settings. This particular Cable Modem is manufactured by Ubee. Your Cable Modem may be different.

To login to the Modem: Open a Web Browser and in the Address Bar type-in "192.168.100.1" >>> then press the Enter Key. That will bring-up the main Login Screen. Once there, click the Login Link >>> type-in "admin" for the User Name and "cableroot" for the Password >>> then click the Enter Key. ("admin" & "cableroot" are the default) Once logged-in several Menu Items will appear. Some of those are Information, Status, Downstream, Upstream and more. Each Link will, ofcourse, show the corresponding Information.

To create or change the Password: Click the "Tools" Link in the upper right-hand corner >>> then click the "Password" Link. Here's where you enter a custom Password. In order to change the Password, it's necessary to enter the previous Password. That can be the default Password or the last custom Password. So, do not destroy the current Password until the new Password is set. I, also, strongly recommend trying the new Password before disregarding the old Password. Once the old and new Passwords have been entered >>> click the "Enter" Button.

To restore the default Settings, for the entire Modem : Click the "Tools" Link in the upper right-hand corner >>> then click the "Reset Defaults" Link >>> select "yes" >>> then click the "Apply" Button.
