How to enter IP address in address bar
Hi all
I need to access my wireless router to change some settings. The manual says
to enter 192.168.2.1 into my browser. How can I do this without IE
automatically prefixing it with 'HTTP'? Or should it be prefixed with HTTP?
Thanks. Al

Ok Rui, thanks.
Doesn't connect though! "Internet Explorer cannot display this page".

Just enter the number as shown in the address bar. My IE6 does not prefix
it with HTTP.
But, if you start with 'www', it does fix the address to include HTTP.

Re: How to enter IP address in address bar
What is your pc's ip address?

go to a command prompt and type ipconfig then press the enter key on the
keyboard.

What does it say for you computer's ip address and is the wireless router
also your internet gateway? If so then what does ipconfig say is your
default gateway address?

If the wireless router is your internet then you should try the default
gateway address in Internet Explorer.

Howdy,

Are you sure that you are entering the correct IP?

(I ask because my Linksys router defaults to 192.168.1.1,
but you had typed 192.168.2.1)

All the best,

Re: How to enter IP address in address bar
The HTTP is necessary, type:
http://192.168.2.1
either in the address bar or the Run bar.

D-Link and Netgear default to 192.168.0.1, Linksys to 192.168.1.1. Some
older SMC Barricades to 192.168.123.254. Siemens routers in the 5100/5200
series and 4100/4200 series are 192.168.0.1. Motorola modem/routers, as
shipped by AT&T (both former SBC regions and former Bellsouth region), are
192.168.1.254.

You did not state which make and model of router that you have. Any brand
other than I have listed, you will have to check your manual carefully. And,
possibly (especially if it is a used model), use a factory reset.
