I'm using CBN ch6541e modem and I can't access the settings page.
The internet was slow so I decided to try to reset the settings to factory values (I was holding reset button for 10 seconds until LEDs started to blink) and then I tried to setup my wifi but I couldn't access the settings page.
Before the reset I could access the settings page, it's on this IP: 192.168.0.1

If I try to open it in Firefox I get: `The connection was reset`

I even tried with `curl` and this is what I got:

curl: (52) Empty reply from server

Response from `route -n`:

I'm using `Kubuntu 18.04` if it matters

Thank you
Yo cannot configure it through WIFI, you must be on an ethernet cable.

Say "Thank you" 3

then if you can access the internet, pull an IPCONFIG report. That will give you the address. If your gateway is set to 192.168.0.1, try https://192.168.0.1

Have fun!

Thanks for the answer. With https I get "Unable to connect" error, with http I get: "The connection was reset".
I'm using Linux so I can't pull an IPCONFIG report. I can pull an "route -n" report which is attached in my question

Do you see this entry: "169.254.0.0 0.0.0.0:"

That is not valid IP address. Is that the interface that you are connecting with?
