How to Reset Technicolor TC8717T Cable Modem

To reset the Technicolor TC8717T modem to its factory default settings, follow these steps:

  1. Locate the reset button on the back of the modem, usually labeled “Reset” or “Restore Factory Settings.”
  2. Using a small object like a paperclip, press and hold down the reset button for 10-15 seconds until the modem restarts. The lights on the modem will start flashing, indicating that it is resetting.
  3. Wait for the modem to finish restarting, which may take a few minutes.
  4. Once the modem has restarted, it will be reset to its factory default settings, including the default login credentials.

It’s important to note that resetting the modem to its factory default settings will erase any custom settings you may have configured, including the Wi-Fi network name and password. You will need to set up the modem again, including configuring the Wi-Fi network, after resetting it. If you need further assistance, you can refer to the Technicolor TC8717T Product Manual for detailed instructions on how to set up and configure the modem.

How to Login to TC8717T

To log in to the Technicolor TC8717T modem, you will need to follow these steps:

  1. Connect your computer or mobile device to the modem using an Ethernet cable or via Wi-Fi.
  2. Open a web browser and type in the default IP address of the modem in the address bar. The default IP address is usually 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.100.1, but it may vary depending on your internet service provider.
  3. Enter your username and password when prompted. The default username is usually “admin,” and the default password is usually “password” or “1234.” If you have changed the login credentials before, enter the updated username and password.
  4. Once you are logged in, you will have access to the modem’s settings and can configure it to your preferences.

If you have forgotten your login credentials, you may need to reset the modem to its factory default settings to access it. To do this, locate the reset button on the back of the modem, usually labeled “Reset” or “Restore Factory Settings,” and hold it down for 10-15 seconds until the modem restarts. This will reset the modem to its default settings, including the default login credentials.

      Hi Ahmed,

      We are not able to reach out to you via phone, however if you’re a ModemGuides customer, you are welcome to give us a call using the information provided with your order or head over to our customer care page to reach out to us about this issue.

      For your modem’s password, if you’re trying to access the IP settings page (where all the wifi settings are found), that password will be found on the back of your modem. Usually it is listed as “password”.

      If, however, you’re just trying to connect to the WiFi, your password can be found on the large grey and white rectangular sticker on the side of the unit. The wifi password for the C2100T is listed as “key/passphrase”.

      Hope that helps resolve your issue, but if not we’d love to hear from you!
