Modem admin password configuration?

Hello. I am trying to change the administration (cusadmin) password of the modem to be distinct from the wifi password. However, when I change the modem password by going to 192.168.0.1, I can no longer log into the admin app (iOS). Changing the cusadmin password back to the wifi password causes the app to work again. However, maintaining the same password between wifi and modem defeats the purpose, in my case, of wanting to use parental controls/timetables. What is the proper method of having distinct modem and wifi passwords?

Oh, that's a nice question. I would like to know the answer too.
I don't have kids but I just think about if I give the password to a friend or neighbourhood, means that they have admin access and it does sound unsafe.

Logout of your app (otherwise it still keeps the old password ).
Change cusadmin password from 192.168.0.1
Open your app and log back in : it should ask you for the password (enter the new one)

Hi benk,
You can do so by accessing the Administration page onto the Modem/router ( can be accessed through 192.168.100.1 or 192.168.0.1 ).

Then navigate to the Admin tab and under the Management change there the password for the login.

If you want to only change the Wifi password, you can do so under the Wireless tab for each of the bands and even the Guest.

Hope this helps! :)

Thank you for your replies so far. I have tried all the solutions so far and get the same result. When I change the cusadmin password to one distinct from the wifi, the iOS app will not allow me to login.

Ah problems is back. Sometimes changing the admin password still causes the iOS app to refuse the same password. I think my workaround will be a factory reset, choosing the admin password AND THEN changing the wifi password to ensure they are distinct.

Hello Benk,

 

This looks to be a limition of the Fizz modem. If you set it up, it may revert itself following reboot/reset.

Some options may include
1. Don't give out the wifi password. You can enter it directly on your children's devices. Unless their device is rooted, they won't be able to see the password.
2. Enable the Guest wireless network option. It has it's own password. You do have to check whether parental controls/timetables apply here.

 

Please keep us updated. Thanks
