Hacking AT&T U-verse Router (Gain Access)

10 Apr

I came across a network with internet connection provided by AT&T U-verse. Out of my curiosity, I wanted to access the router’s configuration manager, thus I needed the gateway ip address.

  1. Tried 192.168.0.1 with no luck. And since I was using my Mac, ifconfig command doesn’t give me the gateway ip address. Workaround is to trace route google.com:

    The ‘home’ route, which is 192.168.1.254 is the gateway ip address.
  2. Go to 192.168.1.254 on any browser.
    Apparently, AT&T U-verse default setting is using above ip address as configuration manager portal. Also, when you access the configuration manager portal, there is no password needed. Only certain section will require password.
  3. Configuration Manager Portal.
    Even without password, you already have access to a lot of information about the network.
  4. Browse to Settings > LAN > Wireless, and I saw:

Happy hacking!
