Accessing iGateway ADSL Modem

Need to access an iGateway ADSL modem from PLDT and tweak some settings? It’s easy!

Signing Into iGateWay ADSL Modem

First, the device to use should be connected to the modem via LAN [Ethernet cable] or WiFi connection. This is a must. Also, make sure it has a working web browser.

Any device such as smartphone, tablet, laptop, or a desktop PC can be used to access the modem settings.

To start, type in on the browser’s address bar, then press enter or whatever corresponding button is present on the device. After that, a page same below will appear.

iGateway ADSL Modem Web User Interface – The default and only available language is English.

To sign in, either use adminpldt or admin as the username. Use the drop-down menu to switch between the two.

Which one should I use? I’d rather not recommend because I’m not a tech savvy. I haven’t tried tweaking any settings on my current modem, though I did a few on my old Prolink H5004N. It was the reason it was busted lately, so I’m kinda afraid of messing up with technology and to pay again for a replacement. lol. One thing I noticed was there are extra features or tabs under adminpldt [correct me if I’m wrong].

Now, how about the password? Last but not the least, use 1234567890 as the password for adminpldt, while 1234 for admin. Easy, right?

To finish, just click on the Login button and presto!

my pldt iGateway adsl router resetted, when i re-accessed i can no longer accessed by entering the default user name and password. the default supposedly is “pldtadmin” and 1234567890 is the password. but now i can only accessed through “admin” 1234 the password but icannot access fully in configuring the router.

what is really the exact root username and password to this unit?


With the new firmware, it seems that I cannot see the same options on your screenshots. Is there a way we can block mac addresses on the new PLDT firmware?

Installed ADSL gan9.et263-4 and want to change said and password of router but, I cannot access the setup page of PLDT Home DSL.

I configured the port forward setting on my iGateway ADSL GAN9.ET263-4 for my CCTV, but still I cannot access it. I checked on the port 80 is closed. Can anyone help me to open or configure? Thank you in advance.

You say: I haven’t tried tweaking any settings on my current modem, though I did a few on my old Prolink H5004N. It was the reason it was busted lately, so I’m kinda afraid of messing up with technology and to pay again for a replacement. lol.

My Prolink H5004N got busted also in only 2 years and 4 months, with pldt plan 1299.

Here is my gripe to pldt:
Plan 1299 is a combination of landline (previous service) with addition on August 8, 2014 of dsl, totally now payment of monthly 1299 pesos.

The modem sold to me on this plan 1299 is the Prolink H5004N, discovered by service technician to be busted, discovered on May 5, 2017 at 10:23 am.

Technician informed me that it had to be replaced, otherwise no isp possible, cost of replacement is 1200 pesos which would be included in next billing.

No choice but to accept the replacement which is now another model, namely: iGateway ADSL GAN9 ET263-4.

I say I had no choice because for three days already I had no isp service from Pldt, and just the same I will be paying the monthly billing of 1299 pesos.

That was Friday, May 5, 2017, so I made a mental note to see Pldt business office on Monday next, to ask for exemption from the 1200 pesos cost of replacement of the busted modem.

Yesterday Monday, first thing in the morning, I went to Pldt business office (as I write this post, it is Tuesday, May 9, 2017, 05:24 am), to inquire about possible exemption, because Pldt provided a poor standard model, it lasted only 2 years and 4 months, besides I am a loyal Pldt subscriber, paying my bills faithfully, punctually, and always completely.

The lady entertaining me repeated time and again: No, because the model was only with warranty for one year, etc., etc, etc. but no, period.

So, what do you guys here say? Isn’t that a scam, rip-off, by installing a low quality modem so that Pldt makes more money with cost of 1200 pesos for replacing a low standard modem, which is sure to break down in less than three years?

I told the lady to kindly pass to Pldt management my unhappy insight on Pldt’s scam and rip-off.

What do you guys here say?
