Cannot access router page

A few weeks ago I was trying to block one of my laptops from accessing the internet during the middle of the night. I blocked the MAC address using my Belkin F5D8233 wireless router's webpage. Once I clicked save, I thought all was good to go. It was a grand success and that laptop no longer has access to the internet. The problem is.... I need it back on the net now lol. Whenever I try to go to my router's homepage I get nothing.... the lights blink on my router and it resets, but the page never loads. It just gets stuck at like 25%. I have done a lot of searching and found people say to hold the reset button while it is powering up and for 10 seconds afterwards.... I've done that, no dice. If I unplug the router from the internet, I can get to the firmware update page only and the option to "reset". I thought that was great however whenever I try to do it, the router hangs.... nothing gets accomplished, it just stays stuck on the "processing" page, just like whenever I try to access the ip.

I can surf the net no problem on my hardwired desktop but that doesn't help me when I'm in the garage working on my bike and need to see something right quick.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Are using interent explorer some routers can be fussy like that
also just the IP address no http or www - see extract from user manual available here http://www.belkin.co...aid=9115&scid=0

In your browser, type “” (do not type in anything else such as “http://” or “www”). Then press the “Enter” key.

otherwise sounds like the router has died - try leaving off for a few hours and see if that helps
