Re: Not able access router using 192.168.1.1
Greetings my name is mark and I will be glad to assist you.

Hi there. No need to run the setup CD. Check the IP address first to see if the computer is communicating with the router. Go to command prompt (if XP, simply click start then go to run and type in CMD and hit ok. A black screen will pop up. Type in IPCONFIG then enter. Check the IP address and default gateway (by default, the router's IP is 192.168.1.1 which will show as the default gateway). Launch internet explorer and type in the default gateway on the address bar. (No www). If you cant pull out the page. Go back to the black screen (START>RUN>CMD) and type in ping (default gateway) ex. ping 192.168.1.1 there is a space between ping and the default gateway. If you got 4 replies you should be able to access the router's page if not, reset the router by pressing and holding the reset button of the router (usually it is the red hole at the back of the router along with the ethernet ports) for 30 seconds. After 30 sec, power off the router (unplug at the back)never release the reset button and wait another 30 sec then plug the power back in and wait another 30 sec before releasing the reset button. You should be able to access the page then. Go back to the black screen (START>RUN>CMD) then do again a ping test. type in again ping and then the default gateway. (ex. ping 192.168.1.1). You should be able to access the setup page now.
I ran into the same problem when i was living in Reno. I fixed my problem by First, Access Command Prompt, by way of Run Program: CMD then i inputed the command ipconfig /all Find the wireless portion in the information that it gives you, what you are looking for is the Mac Address. it should be 12 total Alpha Numeric string, which is seperated every 2 by a dash marker.
Next, access the router through the normal way of browser, In the Wireless section, there is a tab that you select to input the Mac Address into the router, to basically give the router a permission to always give that computer access to the internet. This worked for me. I do hope it works for you. Its what i have always done in the past when i set up wireless Offices
looks like the new laptop has been assigned the same ip address as your old latop so it wont allow u access...renew the ip address, assign ur old lap top a new one or just reboot the router so it will issue u with a new ip address.
Ok, do a troubleshooting session.
Unplug the router from the internet modem.
Try at first to connect using a Network cable from you PC to one of the LAN sockets.
Can you access http://192.168.1.1 with your web browser? (the configuration page)
If yes it is possible that the router has the same address as your adsl modem.
change the router address to something 192.168.0.1 instead of 192.168.1.1
Save your changes. Plug your WRT to the adsl modem and try again.
Does the internet work now with a wired connection ?
If the above does not work can you "ping" the machine ?
if none of that works try doing a hard reset... heres a little guide (off the DD-WRT wiki)
Requirements for WAP54G & WRT54G Repeater Mode function:
* WRT54G: Firmware 2.02.2 or higher
* WAP54G: Firmware 2.06 or higher
Go to http://www.linksys.com/download to download the latest firmware upgrades for both devices.
Accessing the Router?s Setup Page:
Open a Web Browser (either Internet Explorer or Netscape).
1. Type the IP Address of the Router into the Address Bar (192.168.1.1 is the default IP Address).
2. Click GO or press the [Enter] key.
The User Name and Password prompt will appear.
1. Leave the User Name field blank.
2. Type admin in for the Password (the default Password).
3. Click OK or press the Enter key.
The Router?s Setup page will open:
* Click on the Status Tab.
* Click on the Wireless sub tab.
Write down the Wireless MAC Address and the Channel number values located on this page. If the Encryption Function is Disabled, go to the WAP54G Repeater Setup section below.
If Encryption Function is Enabled:
Note: WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) is not yet compatible with wireless repeater mode. You must use WEP Encryption if you wish to use security options with this configuration.
To gather WEP encryption information, click on the upper Wireless tab, then the Wireless Security sub tab. Write down the Passphrase.
WAP54G Repeater Setup
Be sure that you have the WAP54G plugged directly into one of the WRT54G?s numbered ports for the duration of the setup.
Accessing the WAP54G?s Setup Page:
Open a Web Browser (either Internet Explorer or Netscape).
1. Type the IP Address of the WAP54G into the Address Bar (192.168.1.245 is the default IP address).
2. Click GO or press the Enter key.
3. The User Name and Password prompt will appear.
4. Leave the User Name blank.
5. Type in admin for the Password (the default password).
6. Click OK or press the [Enter] key.
The WAP54G?s Setup page will open.
1. Set the Channel value to the same channel as the WRT54G router that was obtained from earlier steps.
2. If WEP encryption was enabled on the WRT54G:
* Select Enable for the Wireless Security option.
* Click on the Edit Security Settings button and enter the same Passphrase as the one of the WRT54G router that you recorded. Click Generate to populate the WEP key fields.
* Click Save Settings to save your changes and close the encryption window.
Click Save Settings to save your changes on the Setup page.
3. Next, click on the AP Mode tab.
* Select the Wireless Repeater option.
* Enter the WIRELESS Mac Address from the WRT54G that you recorded. (Disregard the fact that the page asks to ?Enter the LAN MAC ADDRESS?).
Click Save Settings to save your changes. Close your web browser.
You can now place the WAP54G Access Point in another nearby location (with its power adapter plugged in) so that it can repeat the wireless signal that it receives from the WRT54G.
* The ?SSID? of the WAP54G does not have to be the same as the WRT54G. This can be used for initial configuration; using a different SSID will enable testing of network connectivity, and will show that the WRT54G is associated with the WAP54G.
* If MAC Filtering is configured on the WRT54G, no extra configuration is needed. Wireless clients will still need to be added the MAC Filter list of the WRT54G, but the WAP54G does not have to on the list.
