Welcome to the forum.

I may be wrong but I don’t think you can. I understand that Plusnet can reset it for you. What precisely are you trying to do?

Re: remote access to router.

Are you wanting to remotely perform remote admin on your router?

Depending on the router it is possible - but you need to be super-careful with security.

Re: remote access to router.

Opening the admin interface of your router to the wide open web is never a good idea! There will always be someone trying to access it and passwords aren't totally unbreakable.

 

A firewall allowing only expected IP's would be the bare minimum recommendation otherwise a VPN to administer over would be a better option which then means the HTTP port would not be exposed.

Re: remote access to router.

Hi @wiggy033, I'm afraid you can only log onto your routers homepage if connected to the local network.

 

Please let us know if you have any further queries.
