Login to Router (setup account issue?)


New customer here. Monday we switched to plusnet. Was able to access the router (blue light), but no internet access. 

Issue appears to be that the account signed in to the router was the "setup@plusdsl" account, not my own.

Managed to fix it (sign in to my own) but this morning it is happening again (reverted back to "setup" account).

The same fix used yesterday isn't working, even after router resets etc. 


Any suggestions? Seems like the router won't accept my accounts login


Hope this all makes sense.

@annetteb  Welcome to the forum.

 Before entering your Plusnet credentials you must drop the DSL. The easiest way is to remove the plug that connects to the filter. Enter your details then plug it back in. Select connect if necessary.
