    virgin cable broadband help please

    trying to change the wireless settings on the supplied netgear box. I can access the internet OK wirelessly, but I want to change the SSID and WPA password etc.

    When I go to http://192.168.1.1 and enter the default username and password it takes me to http://www.routerlogin.com/byconfig.htm and says "The system cannot find the file specified."

    Is there a way of doing this without using the CD?

    Aslo, is it the netgear box where I add firewall rules to open ports?

    It's just a WGR614 with the username changed from admin to virgin.

    Once you're in it's just like normal.

    wierd.

    Firefox wasnt letting me do aythign so i tried it in IE.

    It took me to a virgin wireless setup page. I changed the default wireless settings, and now I can get into the normal netgear interface
