Hi all,

I have been using my Linksys Wireless router for some time, however yesterday I had to reset the Router.

However when I went to access the configuration page via the routers web based utility I was unable to do so as I have previously.

Previously when I have changed the confirguration settings, I enter 192.168.1.1 into the browers address field, which then promted a new window asking for a username & password, which I then entered to access the configuration page.

I am no longer able to access the gateways configuration page.

Please could someone help me! I was up for hours last nite!!!! :tazz:

I am unable to enter anything, previously it allowed me to enter 'admin' as both the password & username, however it now simply doesn't present me with the option to enter these.

Can you help?

so you type in the browser address "192.168.1.1"

this brings up the sign on and then

it wont let you enter in anything?

if it does

you should leave the username blank and

put in admin as the password

if its not letting you do that post back and let me know....

looking up possible causes now . . . . . .

VPN is for home based business or laptops that your company provides that connect directly to their network.

If you are using a VPN:

This is a normal occurrence when utilizing VPN pass through with a Linksys router. The reason this occurs is because all network traffic is directed over the VPN tunnel when a VPN tunnel is established between VPN software and a VPN Server. Because all network traffic is directed over the VPN tunnel, none of your “LAN Traffic” goes to your LAN, it goes through the VPN tunnel;
because of this you will be unable to access the routers “Setup” and/or your LAN when the VPN tunnel is established. When you disconnect your VPN software you should again be able to access your LAN resources(ie.... the router access page..)

If your not using VPN..... doing more research..... stand by

If using DHCP, reboot your machine or release and renew the IP on the network card.

If using static IP addresses, change the computer's IP address to match the new segment and remove the old default gateway and replace with the new LAN IP

if that dont work let me know

I am using a static IP address, could you tell me how to change the computers IP address & suggest what it should be?

Should it be similar to 192.168.1.1? If so could you suggest what I should change my comupters IP address to?

i would reccomend using automatic configuration instead of static, since your only using 1 pc on the router.... staatic ip address arent useful for only 1 pc.

If you want to switch to automatic i can help

if you want to stay on static i can help also,

let me know
