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: . . . .
Subnet Mask: . . .
Default Gateway: .

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.

Can't connect to router interface

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. 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

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.

I'm trying to open a port on my router to allow users to connect to an online map. I opened port 1100 and I can see them ping my server but then it kicks them off.


It might be a possibility that you need to open some more ports to run the application. To check, you can put the server in DMZ just for the testing. In case if this allows your users to connect then let us know the name of the application which you are running.

Belkin g+mimo and att speedstream router can not get together. Router recognizes all wireless devices, but modem light is amber and we can't get online

Access the built-in web-server software "inside" the router, and check the 'WAN' settings.

Contact AT&T, and ask for Technical Support, to verify that their router is working correctly.
