don't think the soda is keeping you from logging in.
Did you open it up and clean it inside and let it dry out properly after it happened?

Push the reset button on the back panel for 30 seconds to restore factory defaults.

No user name,
just password is admin.(default setting)

I find it odd that the problem persisted after you removed the router from the equation, which leads me to believe that your modem has routing capabilities and that is where the problem lies. I would try and find the model number for the modem find the default ip for it (using your external ip might work for this) and then trying to remote into it.

no i didnt clean the inside, didnt even clean the outside untill several months later when i got internet back.

i have tried holding the reset button for 30 seconds when the lights flash, and the default login still doesnt work.

after inspecting the modem more, i believe the model is actiontec gt701d. how would i go about getting the default ip for it, and trying to remote into it?

is the link to your user manual for your modem

I was right it does have routing capabilities

It looks like the lan IP is 192.168.0.1 for the modem
just punch that into a browser and forward port 3074 for both UDP and TCP to your computer that you are running on.

Do this WITHOUT the router being used (so just hooked directly to the modem) and then see if the problem persists if it does I will have to look further into it.

If this does fix it then the we need to figure out what we need to do work your router back into the equation.

you connected the modem straight to your pc? Is it working fine like that?

ok, hooked up to the modem directly to my computer and portforwarded 3074 for UDP and TCP.

it fixed the problem, but i have a laptop that others use and its wireless. so i need my router hooked up, and it still blocks the ports


i also saw that it had QoS settings, do you know of an easy to read guide for setting QoS? and will it work with the router hooked up

aha ^^^Thx your modem/router combo causing the double nat. You must get access to the router to fix it

To access your router disconnect your modem from it then access the router you should get in now and change its ip into 192.168.2.1.

Yep pretty much this, to go any further you need to have access to your router interface.

On a side note you could just have your modem handle dhcp, set up a reservation for your router mac addy and and the computer that you need to port forward too then just turn dhcp off on the router. But this all hinges on being able to access your router interface.

Seeing as you cannot remember the password that it was changed to , and you cannot reset the password to be able to use the default settings then it sounds like a misplaced soda is what is keeping you from doing what you want to do.

In other words you might need to look into getting a new router.

i have access to my router now, and i have gone in it and portforwarded 3074. but i still get a problem with my NAT when i play my game.

3074 is also portforwarded on the modem, i did that before i hooked the router up and portforwarded on it also.

it worked fine when i only had my modem hooked up, didnt have NAT problems. i dont understand why the router is messing with it, because i have triple checked and its portforwarded
