I am trying to access the web setup page for my Linksys router and have been frustrated with my attempts to login. This is what is happening.
I am wanting to configure my router for OpenDNS, which requires some changes to the router settings. My understanding is that Linksys routers all have the default IP address http://192.168.1.1, however mine does not. I used the Command Prompt to check the Default Gateway and found the IP address listed there was different than http://192.168.1.1 How that happened, I have no idea. I used a paper clip to press the reset button on the router for 30 seconds hoping it would reset the router back to its default settings, therefore back to http://192.168.1.1 That did not work. I tried it again by unplugging the router for 60 seconds, but I still show the same IP address and not the default address that should be there.
When I type in the Default Gateway IP address in a browser window's address bar, I do get prompted for a user name and password. I leave the user name blank and type 'admin' into the password field, however when I press OK it just pops up the same user name and password prompt and asks for the information all over again.
I have been to Linksys' website and did not find anything helpful there. According to their troubleshooting information, when I reset the router the IP address should be reset to the default. That is not happening.
P.S. This is not a wireless setup.
