On my modem configuration page provided by my ISP (address, I disabled the HTTP services. Now I'm not able to connect to the config page since HTTP has been disabled. How do I re enable it? Thanks.

try resetting it by pressing the reset button or tell the model of the modem. – Baarn Aug 1 '12 at 19:31
@WalterMaier-Murdnelch : Hi, I guess that would work, but i found another solution to the problem, which I have posted below as an answer. – amal antony Aug 1 '12 at 20:01

Since HTTP services was disabled, I used telnet to login to my router config page. This is achieved by typing the command telnet on the terminal. There, different modem manufaturers provide various commands to configure the modem. Mine (UTStarcom) provides a command called restoredefault which sets the modem back to it's default settings. Issuing this command defaults the modem to it's factory settings (Http enbaled).However, you will be required to change back the factory password to the one provided by your ISP.
