Question about Linksys Computers & Internet
I am not sure what the exact router is however a few months ago I suddenly could not port foward/ access 192.168.1.1 at first I was fine with it but now I need it D:
Check the IP address on your computer.
Connect the computer to the router and check the IP address and default gateway on your computer.
The default gateway is the IP address of your router.
If it is 192.168.1.1 then try to open the setup page. Power cycle the router and see if that works.
See How to open 192.168.1.1

Port forwarding is not the only thing that you have to enable to access your home network. Firstly do you just want to access your router from the outside? If that is the case enable remote login via the administration tab.
If you want to login to your computer from the outside then you must first enable remote desktop and enable port forwarding on your router.
You enable port forwarding for port 3389 which is the remote desktop port. So start port is 3389 and end port is 3389 after that set a static IP on your computer that you want to access.
You can enable remote desktop by following the directions below at the link '
After doing this. What you do is go to the status tab of your router. Look at the IP there.
On the remote computer lauch remote desktop and enter that IP then click connect. IT will then ask you for the username and password of the computer behind the router that you want to login to. After that you should be able to get in.
If you need any clarifications regarding this you may message me and id be glad to help.

It is possible to configure your router via a web browser. Although it’s disabled by default, your router has its own mini HTTP server built in. This provides another way to gain access to the router for the purpose of issuing commands. To enable the HTTP server, you have to use the command "ip http server" from the global configuration mode.
cisco(config)#ip http server
Then open a web browser and point it to one of your router’s IP addresses. The interface is not really nice, but you can issue commands using hyperlinks.
For security reasons I still suggest that you keep the HTTP server turned off, since it offers just another point of access for potential hacking.
What is so bad about the command line? Configuring port forwarding is actually pretty easy, once you know the commands.
Type show ip interface to find the name of the interface you want to set port forwarding for.
The show ip nat translations command shows you the current port forwards on Router.
Type configure to enter the configuration mode
The command for port forwarding is: ip nat inside source static (TCPorUDP) (YourComputersIP) (PortToForward) interface (name)(PortToForward)
in you case:
ip nat inside source static tcp 192.168.0.1 5900 interface (name) 5900
ip nat inside source static tcp 192.168.0.2 5901 interface (name) 5901
replace (name) with the interface name you got from the first command.
Then press CTRL-Z to end the Configure Session
Type copy run start once you tested your settings and press ENTER for the question Destination filename [startup-config]?
I have heard of some commercial tools that let you configure your router via web interface, but they are very expensive (around 1400$).
You can try it out for 14 days. Go here.
If you want to play with a free one, go to Cisco (link) and check it out. (You have to be a member though.)
If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Step 1 : Check the IP Address of the Computer
Step 2 : If it is in the Range of the Router ( 192.168.2.x)
Step 3 : Try typing 192.168.2.1 on the address bar of internet explorer
Step 4 : If not working Hard reset the router by inserting a paper clip into the reset hole on the back of the router
Step 5 : If the IP Address is any public address or 169.254.x.x then also do step 4
