Change the wireless password or security type.

3. The WPA Pre-Shared Key is where you can specify the new password.

1. From the Interface click Wireless on the left side, then uncheck Enable Wireless, and click Apply/Save. Anything connected wirelessly will lose connection at this point. Check it again and click Apply/Save to toggle wireless back on.


Port Forwarding
In computer networking, port forwarding redirects a communication request from one address and port number combination to another. You may need to open ports for gaming systems, running a game or media server, VoIP, and other applications.

With port forwarding, it is important that you know the IP address of your device you are forwarding ports to. To see what is currently connected to your Sagem 2705 modem, click on Device Info, and then ARP to view connected devices and their IP addresses.

Forwarding ports on the Sagem 2705
1. Click Advanced Setup on the left to branch it out and then click UPnP.
2. Uncheck the Enable or disable UPnP protocol box, then click Apply/Save button.
3. Next, while still under Advanced Setup, click NAT.
4. Click the Add button.
5. Click Custom Service and type the name you want to use like "dervex camera"
6. In the Server IP Address specify the IP address of your device you are forwarding to.
7. In the Protocol box you can specify UDP, TCP, or both.
8. Specify the External Port Start, External Port End, and Internal Port Start. The Internal Port End field will change automatically.
9. Click the Apply/Save button.


Factory Reset
A factory reset will take the modem back to factory settings. That clears all settings like personalized wireless names, passwords, and port forwarding, etc. Depending on the state of the modem, sometimes a hard reset will restore services.

1. To reset, first find the reset pinhole at the back of the modem between the Power and Ethernet ports.
2. Take a small pointy object (a toothpick or a safety pin is best) and press it into the hole and hold for a minimum of 3 seconds until the lights on the modem flash.
3. Once the lights have stabilized check services again.
