Check to see if you can access the router's control panel. To reach the control panel make sure you are DIRECTLY connected to the router with a CAT5 (Ethernet) cable.

Now go to Start>Programs>Accessories>Command Prompt. In here type: ipconfig
Press Enter. The command should return results similar to these:
IP Address: . . . . 192.168.1.2
Subnet Mask: . . . 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: . 192.168.1.1

What you want is the IP Address associated with the, "Default Gateway." Now open your Internet Browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc...) and type that same IP Address into the address field. DO NOT add www. or .com. Now press ENTER (Or GO) as if you want to visit a website. This should take you to the router's control panel. Once here you will probably have to log in, if you don't know the username and password try the default:

User ID:
Password: admin

If that doesn't work you'll have to call Linksys for assistance in reseting the login User ID and Password. Once you manage to log in try some of the links. If no errors are returned (Page not Found, etc...) your router should be functional and is not the source of your troubles.

What I'm giong to this bad gateway"the server


The server IP settings are misconfigured, or has been connected to the wrong port on a switch / router. This could also mean that the network port is not correct. Double check ipconfig /all on the server, then have network check port if all is correct on server.

Can't connect to router interface 192.168.1.1


Took another look by fixing word wrapping in notepad.

It's missing DNS Servers. Check your NIC settings and make sure you don't have a DNS server manually set to another IP. Plus, you might try resetting the router to default in case there is a DNS modification there.

I'm not sure if this is the cause, but I couldn't hurt. It's part of trouble shooting.

Good Luck!

I can't access the router's set up page. 192.168.2.1 is online but even if i turn off the firewall i still couldn't get in the console page


Check your default gateway ip address by typing ipconfig on the command prompt. The gateway should be pointing to your router if not type ipconfig/release, then ipconfig/renew. Try to access the router ..page...

If the steps above does not resolved the issue. Reboot your router, then try to access it after.

Can't play fight night on line because servers are down


Hi hnic2, if the official servers are down that is not any problem with your router so no worries there. It means the company running those servers has 1. taken them down for maintenance or 2. had their servers crash and are in the process of fixing them.

Generally it can take anywhere from 10 minutes to 10 hours to get servers back online, I would suggest just checking back with it every couple hours or so until they get them back up.
