Arris TG2472 is a wireless internet router from the company Arris Enterprises. It is a router-modem that helps connect and secure your internet connection and helps with things like downloading software, streaming media, talking with your friends, etc.
But for all this, we need to first learn how to make it work.
We have outlined steps on how to log in to your Arris router, reset it, and configure it or set it up below.
How to Login to an Arris TG2472 Router
It is quite easy to get access to your Arris Router. The things that you need are:
- The IP Address of your device
You will easily find this information in the manual that will come with your router. But, just in case you do not get the manual, do not understand the steps, or just don’t want to read the whole manual to get the login information, we have those steps for you.
This login will help set up and configure your router, connecting or disconnecting to guest networks, making your own internet connection secure, and so much more.
It’s just a quick guide to help you, and it’s pretty easy too.
1. Turn on Your Computer
First and foremost, turn on your computer and connect to your wireless or wired network.
2. Open Your Browser
Now that you have connected, open your browser. It could be Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Explorer, etc. It doesn’t matter as any browser will do.
3. Enter IP Address
Now, you just click on the address bar of your browser and type 10.0.0.1. This is the default IP that helps you access the router’s admin user interface in your browser. If this IP does not work, we have some other ones that might. Try them out.

4. Enter Default Information
Now that you are on the user interface page, you will see two text fields, labeled Username, and Password.
Now, in the given text fields, write the default username and password. The default username for your router is ‘admin,’ and the default password is ‘password.’
If these do not work, here are some other username and password combinations that might.

5. Get Access
After you have entered the default information, just press the enter key on your computer’s keyboard or move your cursor to where the Login button is on the screen, and click on it. Either of these two steps will give you access to the control panel of your router.
If No Response
If none of the above-mentioned steps help you in gaining access, then you should reset your router.
How to Reset Arris TG2472 Router
Now, it is possible that you may still not gain access to your router, even after going through all the steps mentioned above. To solve this, you just need to reset your router to its factory default settings. It’s very easy and can be done in a matter of moments.
The steps are as follows:
1. Locate the Reset Button
First, you should look for the reset button on your router. It is usually located at the back, but depending on the model, it may be at the top or bottom.
2. Hold and Press
Now that you have located the reset button, take an object such as a needle, a toothpick or a safety pin, and insert it to press the button. Hold it for 15 to 20 seconds, and your router will automatically reset itself to its factory restore settings.
Keep in mind, though, that if you reset your router, you will lose your online connection. So, if in doubt, get an expert to handle it and set it up for you.
How to Configure Arris TG2472 Router
Now, we have learned how to access the router’s user interface and how to reset it. But, we also need to know how to set it up, connect it with all the proper wires, and have it functioning. The box that contains the router comes in contains:
- Telephony Gateway
- Power Cord
- Wireless Connection Configuration Guide
- Ethernet Cable
- End-User License Agreement
Some other things you might require to set up your router are:
- Coaxial or Coax Cable
- Telephone Cable
- Information Pack provides by the company
Once you have all the things, here are the steps you need to follow:
1. Connect Coax Cable
Firstly connect one end of the cable to the outlet or splitter and the other end to the Telephone Gateway's Cable Connector. Make these connections tight by hand at first, and then by a wrench (an additional 1/8 turn will do).
2. Plug in Power Cord
Now, take the power cord's plug and insert it into the Power Connector, which is present at the back. Then, insert the power cord into an AC outlet at the back of the router.
An indicator of the connection being made is going to be the gateway power light, which is present at the front, to light up and flash or blink once.
3. Attach Ethernet Cable
Then connect one end of the Ethernet cable to any Ethernet port in the back, and the other end to a computer, broadband router, or hub.
4. Connect Telephone Cable
Now, just connect one end of the telephone cable to the telephone port at the back of the gateway and the other end to the telephone.
5. Wireless Configuration
For this, the steps are the same as those mentioned in the how-to login section above.
