ADSL Router external access to solve trouble


[link to this post]
 
OK i wanted to know if there is any way of trying to gain access to an ADSL router externally to solve its connectivity issues,

The ip is static fixed how ever the ADSL router has internet access problems which means it has no internet and the username and password need to be inputted.

There must be a way to solve it externally from another location rather than going to the location of the ADSL router and connecting directly to the ADSL router via ethernet cable

But if it's not connected to the internet, how will you access it remotely?

When this happens, does the router still have sync with the exchange?

I'm a bit puzzled by the need to connect via ethernet to input the username and password for the internet. Is the normal connection wireless, and is that failing as well?

If so, it implies a factory reset of the router is happening and setting the wireless to defaults, (settings which have been changed?), as well as losing the other stuff.

?
You haven't answered any of my questions.

Is this router just serving something dumb, like a webcam?

Most routers retain their settings and will reconnect in the event of a power cut, so the internet is always on. I think you need a new router.

You have to do a saveall in the CLI to save the settings to flash memory.
