In your Manual that came with Modem it says that:

Username is admin

Password is also admin

See if this works for you.

Hi Carla,  Thank you for your help Aerosick. If you don't have the User Guide, you can view it online at The WiFi router does not have parental controls.  You will need to it on the device itself or find a 3rd party program.

Then why does the wi-fi router have parental controls? Course I cannot get them to work even setting the control directly on a valid computer.

What about the MAC address blocker controls? Does that work?

MAC address white/black listing is easily spoofed.
Rather like locks on a door, they only keep out honest people.
