Been working on getting a new network set up for my family's house but it is not going well.

The router is a wireless router (Linksys) with a signal booster on top.

The router's '1' lights are all on, and going. (Plugged the desktop into the 1 slot)

But when I try to go to the router's admin consul page (192.168.1.1) it will not come up.

I have the computer auto-obtaining the IP addy.

My laptop cannot see any wireless networks.

Are you sure that is the default address?

Is this right out of the box?

Have you made admin changes before?

What model number is the router?

If it is not too much work, I would try and press the reset to default settings on the back of the router. Reboot the router and put in the default address. Be warned, this will delete any changes you have made.

Before that you could try a different port on the router or shut it down for a minute then reboot it.

also...in case the admin page got changed...you could do an ipconfig /all (from a command prompt) to see what your default gateway is...that's your router's ip address

I think i had the same problem. the problem was with the router changing IP addresses . I worked with a tech at Linksys who help me solve this problem. I installed mine a week ago and it ran fine for about 5 days and then I couldn't log on to aol. After Contacting Linksys yesterday and they told me the problem was with AOL i worked with a tech for two hrs yesterday and she told me the problem was with Linksys I was a little bit hesistant about calling them again so I waited until i was a little bit cooler and I worked with a tech today that knew what she was doing. Maybe you should give them a call but it does sound like it is the same promblem that i was having.

Good Luck

This does sounds like there is a problem with your router. Can you set a static IP on your computer that is on your lan and then try to connect?
