Unable to configure router
Hi, I have recently purchased Linksys WRT54GR router.

I can connect to the router but despite hours (literally) of trying I have
been unable to access the configuration page. I can ping the router fine but
can't open the UI using 192.168.1.1. Have really reached the end of the road
with Linksys (reset router, turn off pop up blocker, no proxy server, turn
off Windows firewall etc) but still at square 1.

The router is definitely working as I went back to the store and they demo'd
it on two other laptops.

Any thoughts? I'm using Acer laptop with Vista. IP config results below.

Cheers

Stupid question, but are you trying to configure the router by
connecting the laptop to it with an ethernet cable? If you're trying to
configure it wirelessly, that's why you can't. Use a cable instead.

If that isn't your issue, install Firefox and try using it. If it works
with Firefox, you've got some security setting and/or add-on in IE that
is preventing the access.

Re: Unable to configure router
looks like you are trying to configure using wireless. try with a
wired connection. a few routers will not allow initial config over
wireless for security reasons.

Re: Unable to configure router
Thanks for the reply. I have tried with both wired and wireless - see IP
config below if I use an ethernet connection. Have also tried both firefox
and IE, no difference.

Any other ideas, cheers

Re: Unable to configure router
have you tried doing a hard reset of the router? there is usually a
hole or button on the back of these that you hold down for X
seconds.

besides the fact that you can't get to the admin pages, do you have
Internet connectivity? I'm assuming you are replying from that
machine, but just to be sure.

Re: Unable to configure router
Yes have done a hard reset, also tried to update the firmware but I have the
latest version. I do have internet connectivity but only on a wired basis (ie
not using the wireless - it is disconnected).

No proxy in IE. Have reduced the security settings as low as I can and
cookies are allowed.

Re: Unable to configure router
firewall? I can't think of much else that would be interfering. What
is this router connected to?

Re: Unable to configure router
Have tried with Windows firewall turned off an no luck. The router is
connected to a LAN at one end (my ISP is a LAN on the compound where I live)
and from one of the ports to the PC via ethernet. Although the only way I can
use the web is to plug the internet cable straight into the PC.
