Hi, I'm am trying to log on to my router to add two new devices for WiFi access. The problem is that I can not get on to the log on page through my browser. The instructions say that I can get there by typing in the routers IP address into the HTML bar of either IE7 or Firefox. I have already tried on Firefox and when I do it just times out. I would try on IE7 except for that I have IE8 (When I try on IE8 it comes up with nothing). So then I tried to install IE7 and run it but I cant because IE8 is installed. So I tried to uninstall IE8 to get IE7 to run but I can not uninstall IE8 (On the control panel page to uninstall programs I can see IE8 but there is no option there to uninstall it). Is it possible to replace IE8 for IE7 or is there another way that I can access the router control panel? Can someone please help? Thank you.

I have no idea why you are trying to add a wireless device using a browser.

What operating system are you running?

I am using windows XP with a Netgear router and wireless hub.
All I know is that it is an extra line of security so that devices have to get admin permission before they can use the WiFi, and that it can only be done on the computer with that IP address(the one i'm using).
Thanks for the reply
