Managing Your Device

It is recommended that you log in to the device by using a web browser from a PC that's connected via QiFi or to the device's LAN port. To log in, open a web brwser and type in the address bar. A window will pop up requesting a password. Input the user login password and then click the Login button. After successfully logging in, the default home page will appear. The default username is "admin" and default password is "EarthLink + last 6 digits of MAC"

WiFi Configuration

In the WiFi Settings section, under the Network Setting, you can modify the default SSID and Password. The default WiFi SSID and WiFi Password can be found on the the back of the device. 


This menu allows you to reboot the device or restore the device to factory defaults. Special care needs to be taken when restoring factory defaults. 

FAQ and Troubleshooting



My PC cannot connect to the device
  • Unplug the PC ethernet cable and check if the PC LAN connection is working correctly or showing activity.
  • Check if the SYS LED is on. If it's not, check the power cord and make sure it's connected properly. Also verify that the power supply is available.
  • If the PC LAN shows no activity and device SYS LED is off, but the power cord and ethernet cable are connected properly and there is a power supply, then the power adapter is likely damaged. Please contact EarthLink at 866-323-0325 for more help.
