New Netgear Nighthawk router by whats my user and password

Hi

 

I just ordered a New netgear Nighthawk d7800 router,

looking at getting it Friday but I cant remember whats the connection user / password

I looked in the connection on the plusnet router and can see my username but does it have a password because I cant remember it.

The connection user / password combination would be the same as what you use to log in to the Plusnet Portal.

The username and passwords for the router / ppp login to PN, will be the same as used to access the PN member centre, with one difference.
The username will need to be appended with @plusdsl.net in the routers ppp username.

Hi there @davelaz,

Just wanted to confirm that what @RichardB has posted is correct and so the PPP Username and Password should be:

username@plusdsl.net

accountpassword

If you've forgotten your account password though, not to worry, just click here and reset the password.
