What happens if you turn off the cable modem? I know this is a stupid question but are all the lights on your router functioning properly?

Um...that makes sense. There wouldn't be an Internet signal if you turned the modem off that is supplying it.

Cant type much du4e to muscle and nerve damage in right arm.

Try looking with IP config the IP addresses need to be in the same range a dn subnet to link you need to find the router from the computer. best to sset up the PC as a client for DHCP and set the router as DHCP. Just a littlee easier that way That way you do not have to manage the ip addresses.

Perhaps start with IPconfig on the command line

Okay I had this problem with my netgear router (it could be the same problem).

First try this (You will need a proxy address for your ISP

1) Load internet explorer
2) Go to Tools and Options
3) Click the Connections tab
4) Click Lan Settings
5) Check the "Use Proxy box" and enter the proxy address and port number
6) Check the bypass proxy for local IP addressses
7) in the Advanced window under exceptions enter your routers IP address....

If this doesn't work see the FAQ on the linksys website. Which will probably tell you to check you routers firmware version (and if it's out of date update it with the current stable version).

or this comment on Expert Exchange http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Q_20839529.html

Hope this helps

Try completing the URL with the port number on the end (192.168.1.1:80 or 88, 8080), or you could try shutting PC down resetting router (give it a couple minutes) then restart PC & try connecting again.

ok this is simple go to control panel and select network conections. you should see local area connection 1. double click on it. on the new window you should see a tab named support. click on that tab. you should see a default gateway and a number.

if you dont see that tab open comand prompt (ms dos prompt). if you have Windows ME, 98, 95 type in winipconfig. if you have Windows 2000, XP type in ipconfig. you should see a number following default gateway. thats the number you log into your router.

in what way does the router not work? you've implied that when the cable modem is on you get internet access, so how does it not work?

Hi Victor Me,
You do not say what Linksys modem model you have, and there are several. You should have an Easy Install disk that came with it.and it gives FULL details which takes you to the site and shows you how to confgure it using the 192.168.1.1 There is also a full discription on the the CD also.
The Link below is to a trouble shooter. make sure you highlight and copy and paste it as one complete link.. But the best one is the CD one that came with your Linksys router. Connect Modem to your incoming cable, and from the Router connect the cat5 cable to the Wan port on the Router, and then a cable from one of the 4 outgoing ports to the computer you have(I am assuming that if you have more than one computer on the LRouter, you have configured them as a home Network already. With a Group name and individual names name for each addtional one.. When you have done this, you should be able to get onto your browser which maybe Internet Explorer, and type in the 192.168.1.1 and that will connect you to Linksys set up site....Having said all this ..we still do not know the model;...and in any case, far better instructions are already on your CD ROM that came with your Router.
If you manage to get onto the setup page on IE or your particular browser, when it comes to putting in a password..dont use the one they say "admin" make up your own and make sure you write it down.
The above instructions are for the Linksys that I use on 3 computers.BEFSR 41.using Fast Ethernet.
All details on the CD will tell you what cables you need, so have a good read first
THIS LINK BELOW IS ONE I FOUND THAT MIGHT HELP

http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/linksys.cfg/php/enduser/st...&p_li=

With SOME of the information our friends here have given and what I have posted , I hope you have some success

Hope this helps,
Take Care

Victor Me,


In back of the linksys router there is a little button..... press and hold it for about 30sec and then let go. Turn of your cable modem, router and pc off. turn on your modem, then router and then finally boot the pc. Now try the accessing your linksys webconfig. (by pressing that little button in the back of the router will reset the router back to factory default)

I am using a Linksys WRT120n and am having the same problem When you try and access the routers settings from 192.168.1.1-it asks for the password etc. When you put it in-it tells you it is incorrect.You can't upgrade or even check the version of firmware unless you can access this function. It is maddening, I have reset to factory defaults twice and gone through the setup process three times now.I think this particular router has issues.

I can't believed this thread started 8 years ago, and no one's given a full solution.

There are many possible reasons why you can't connect to the admin interface of your router. Here are few common reasons:
1. If this is a wireless router, it may be disabled from accessing the admin interface via wireless. That means you have to connect with a wire to the router, before accessing the admin interface.
2. Your computer wasn't in the same subnet as the admin interface IP. For example: if you PC is somehow set with the static IP 192.168.0.5, it will not be able to reach 192.168.1.1 (unless you're doing advance networking with vLAN or bridging, but that's beyond a normal home network setup). To access the router, your need to change the computer IP to the same subnet (e.g. 192.168.1.5).
3. Someone (be it yourself, the ISP technician, or a hacker) has intentionally or unintentionally changed the default IP address and/or the password to the admin interface. To fix this see below.

For case 3 above, to gain access to your router again. Do these:
1. Unhook your router from the network. With nothing connected to the router, besides the AC adapter cable, do a 30/30/30 reset of the router. Meaning push and hold the reset button for 30 seconds with power, then 30 seconds with power disconnected, and last 30 seconds with power reattached. Now the router should be fully reset to the original factory settings.
2. Connect the router to your computer with 1 network cable from LAN port to LAN port. Set a static IP address to your PC's LAN port within the same subnet of your router IP (e.g. 192.168.1.5). Now you should be able to connect to your router by typing its IP (e.g. 192.168.1.1) in a browser and use the factory password.
