If you are still having problems after rebooting your modem then you should consider purchasing a new modem to fix any problems that may be related to the modem.

Troubleshooting login problems


You may experience problems upon trying to log in to the Control Center. Let’s say you are aware that you are entering the correct username and password, but still keeps seeing an error message, or if you put in your login credentials, but the Login button turns out to be not clickable or is grayed out. These problems can, of course, be solved.
You can retrieve your username and password if you’ve forgotten your login details. (If necessary, you can reset your password. If you are sure the username and password are right, the reason might be because of how you type in the credentials. Consider the following:

  1. Copying and pasting your username or password. Sometimes, you need to manually encode the login credentials because that could be the root cause of why you’re having issues logging in. When a username and password is just copied and pasted, there might be some extra spaces included and inserted as part of the login details. With an extra character, or space, the system would not recognize the username/password, and you see an error message. If this is the problem you’re having, manually typing in your username and password should fix it.
  2. Being dependent on your browser to automatically enter your password using stored information. Unlike in any routers, saved passwords usually don’t work with our systems. We suggest manually typing in your Control Center password, rather than expecting your browser to retrieve it.
    For some users, the system by default adds @control.centurylink.com to the end of their username. For instance, if your username is johnbrown, the system would make it to be johnbrown@control.centurylink.com. If you experience this with your username, do not remove the @control.centurylink.com. It is essential for the login process. Note: If you’re ever prompted to give your username, encode the information before the @ sign. For example, johnbrown.
