    My Telstra Gateway Max is in a hard-to-get-at location. Here's how to reboot without pulling cables:

    1.Login here (default username/password = admin/password)

    2.Advanced View

    3.Gateway Administration

    4.Diagnostics

    5.Click "Reboot Router"

      I don't know if it's just me, but the newer Telstra gatway max uses 10.0.0.138 as the default gateway, so use that instead of the above link if the above link doesn't work

        I was able to get to (3) Gateway admin…
        Can't see the option (4) Diagnostics….Had to go into Maintenance to reboot…

        I'm on NBN & get the same downloads & uploads as before rebooting…
        Download: 34
        Upload: 10.5
        Does this sound correct please?

        how do we get to that 10.0.0.138 gateway? when i type that into the browser it doesn't work, I get an error saying the page doesn't exist??

          192.168.0.1 doesn't work? What model modem do you have?

        •  

          it varies from router to router. if you don't know what it is and/or modified the default gatway:

          • on your keyboard press Win+R
          • type "cmd" without quotes to open command prompt
          • in command prompt, type "ipconfig" without quotes and it will bring up some info
          • look for the Default Gateway and that is the number that you use for accessing your router

      I just turned off the switch at the powerpoint. No password required.

      Was getting 57Mbps a few days ago…

      Now only 56…. :(
