I have tried holdng the reset button down for 30+ seconds, i have unplugged the power for over a min.....and yet i still cant access it.....i need help please, is there another way to access this router i have looked on google but no luck to a solution
Open command prompt and do ipconfig and make sure that you are getting a valid IP address .
Default gateway should be 192.168.2.1.and if you are not getting valid ip address then check if your ip is assigned manually under TCP/IP properties .It should be obatin an ip address automatically .
Also make sure that modem is connected to modem port .
Also try to disable all firewall from your computer
If you are getting valid ip address and then try to ping 192.168.2.1 in command prompt .check if your getting any replies .If your are getting replies then it could be issue with your Internet explorer settings
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

On most routers this process works everytime.
First push and hold the reset button on the back of the router for 30 seconds, count slow, longer is better then not long enough.
After the reset unplug the device for 30 seconds.
Plus the router back in and perform another 30 second reset.
Now try to login to the device with it's default username / password
This is usually root with blank password for this model.
1. when the
unit is powered on, hold down its reset button for 30 seconds 2.
while still holding down the reset button, unplug the router from
power and hold for an additional 30 seconds 3.
still holding down the reset button, turn on power to the router
again and hold for 30 more seconds
process (a total of 90 seconds) is complete, your router should be
restored to itsfactory default state.
From your browser, access the setup page at http://192.168.1.1
Hubs don't have any settings to reset. If it's a router, try the "30-30-30 reset." Get a pen, and hold down the reset button 30 seconds while the router is still plugged in. While still holding down the reset button, unplug the power, hold down another 30 seconds, then plug it back in, and hold down the reset another 30 seconds. The reset button is a small black button that you'll need a pen to push.
1. when the unit is powered on, hold down its reset button for 30 seconds
2. while still holding down the reset button, unplug the router from power and hold for an additional 30 seconds
3. still holding down the reset button, turn on power to the router again and hold for 30 more seconds
After this process (a total of 90 seconds) is complete, your router should be restored to its factory default state.
1. Did you reset the unit to Factory default? To tell try to log on to it http://192.168.1.1 if it asks for a user and password its:
If that doesn't work or if it is nor at that address then it's not reset.
To reset, unplug all cables, unplug the unit hold in the reset button, plug unit in hold button for 30 sec. then release, let go for 30 more seconds, then pull plug again, reconnect all your cat 5's and plug in again. It takes about 1 min. to boot up. Then tru to access the above address to see if it works, if it does all shoud be reset so try to access the Internet through it.
Reset the router to factory default. Usually done by unplugging the router hold in the reset button and plug in the router wait 30 sec. release reset button Wait 30 more sec. and unplug router again. Then reset your computer to obtain ip address automatically in network properties. Next shut down your computer, router and modem. First re-power the modem, give it time to boot (about 2 to 3 Min. for Cable and dsl or 7 to 10 min for satellite), next re-power the router, again give it time to acquire it's info (about 2 min.) then start your computer and try to access the Internet, all should be well...
When router is powered on, press the reset button and hold for 30 seconds. (Use a paper clip or something sharp)
While holding the reset button pressed, unplug the power of the router and hold the reset button for 30 seconds
While still holding the reset button down, turn on the power to the unit again and hold for another 30 seconds.
This should allow for a full reset of the modem. Once that's done, connect your computer to it with an Ethernet cable to access it's WebUI using the Default Gateway (192.168.100.1), or connect to the WIFI using the default SSID and Password that are usually written on the modem itself.
Unplug the Dlink, wait 2 min, and plug it back in. If that work, on the back is a small hole, marked RESET. Using a pencil, or straightne out a large paperclip, press that the button inside gently. Hold it for 30 sec. Release and unplug the unit. Shut down the whole network. "Starting from the wall", power up the modem, wait 2 min, power up the Dlink, and power up your machine. Your Dlink should be at default now. Remember to reset you security, change the password, etc.
I have had to do this several times, sometimes unplugging the power, and plugging it back while holding the button. (Got 3 hand?)
