The rep would've told you how it works.

You get an email 4-6 weeks after sticking with the service.

@Repooc I got my modem today and I had hard time setting it up in the bridge mode. It's not as straight forward. When you login to 192.168.0.1 for the first time, it won't ask for any username and password. It will take you straight away to the easy setup page which basically shows you a check mark if your modem is getting signals from the service provider and on the next screen it asks you to setup Wireless settings. The mistake I made was that I didn't configure Wireless settings because I had my Airport Extreme that I wanted to use but since there was no other way to setup new modem in the bridge mode I felt completely lost. I then setup SSID and password on the Fido modem, saved settings, rebooted the modem and tried to open 192.168.0.1 again and voila I was asked for username and password. So in short, you must setup Wi-Fi on Fido in order to access admin page of modem. Another tip, your username is the default one which is written behind the modem but the password is now the one you setup for your SSID. It's not the default modem password. Once you login then just follow the instructions on the link provided by another poster (pasted again below) and you'll be all set.

Just be patient after you apply settings. It took a while before modem came back online. I wish there were instructions included in the package. I wasted more than half an hour on all this. Very frustrating experience. I didn't have same challenge when I got Rogers modem a few years ago.

Good luck!

Yeh no choice but either mail them at your cost or drop off at their location. I received pro-rated monthly charges back (invoice, not actual money yet). But the modem deposit for Carrytel is not mentioned in this invoice. Anyone else received it?

192.168.100.1 to change settings of modem in bridge mode. Still need username password to login, password would be wifi password you get forced to setup going through easy setup.

Are you guys changing the default password? Any risk for not doing it?

My rep didn’t tell me anything. I told him I wanted the 45$ deal with gift card and he said ok and signed me up. That was it.
