The sb5120 does not have a reset button- you just unplug the power cord and plug it back in to reboot it, it is a modem not a router. click start-run- type: cmd and click ok then a black box will come up and type in: ipconfig and press enter and that should give you your ipaddress of your router if you are connected through a router

CASCADING / CONNECTING TWO ROUTERS (WRT54G)


To properly connect a second router to a main router that acts as the gateway, follow the steps below.

1. Try to isolate your 2nd router first by disconnecting everything from it and connect a computer to port 1. Make sure that the power cord is plugged in.
2. Reset the router.
HARD RESET- Reset the device to factory default.
1] Press and hold the reset button for 30 sec., after that
2] Unplug the power keep holding down the reset button for another 30 sec.
3] Then, plug back the power keep holding down the reset button for 30sec., after that
4] Release the reset button.
3. From the computer open an Internet Explorer browser and type 192.168.1.1 on the address field. Leave user name blank and type admin on password, you should be at the Setup Page by now.
4. Click on Setup Tab and change the LAN IP/Local IP addresses to 192.168.1.2 then hit apply/Save settings. Note that, it won't go back to the Setup Page, close your browser.
5. Access the new IP address of the through Internet Explorer browser. Type on the address bar http://192.168.1.2. Look for DHCP Server under the Setup Tab. Disable the DHCP then click on apply/Save settings.
6. Shut down the computer and power down the router. Now get a cat5 straight-through Ethernet cable and plug one end to one of the four ports at the back of the secondary router and plug the other end to one of the regular ports on the Main router. Then turn both back on. The 2nd router should be ready to provide connectivity now.

Hope this help everyone.

Not able to connect to the internet


If you have a static IP address, you will need to put that information into the router through the web interface. Find the IP of your router by pressing CTRL+R and type in CMD. Then type 'ipconfig' without the (')s. Press enter then find where it says Gateway:. It should be something like 192.168.x.x Type that into a browser to bring up the web interface, usually there is a password, and that info should be located on the unit itself, if the password doesnt work either contact your ISP or reset the router. Once your in, put the IP address that your ISP gave you int the WAN section. Save settings and you should be good.
Hope that helps!

Configuracion


Go to any Web Browser and put 192.168.1.1 in to address bar.
If this does not work the the default configuration settings have been changed and if you do not know the routers IP address you can do one of 2 things
1. Reset the router by holding the red in-set reset button on the back of the router for about 5 to 10 seconds while the router has power.
The lights will flash oddly and after the front lights have stopped blinking try the above step again.
2. If you have windows go to the start menu. Click on: All programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt.
Once the window opens type "ipconfig" and put the IP address under "Default Gateway" in a web browser to access the router configuration.

Hi,

I got your issue, If you want to log into 192.168.0.1 , make sure that the computer is online wired or wireless with your router, then try to open the page using http://192.168.0.1. If still its not opening the page then follow these steps,

1. Click on start--> Go to all Programs--> Accessories--> select command prompt

2. You will get a black window, which is the command prompt and you will find a small cursor blinking there you type in "ipconfig" (without cotes) and then hit enter.

3. Check what is the IP address/ IP v4 ipaddress , which must be in the range 192.168.0.x

4. Then in the next line type "ping 192.168.0.1" (without cotes) then it will give you reply 4 times and with the ping statistics Packets send=4, Received =4, lost =0.

5. Then type in the next line "start iexplore 192.168.0.1" then you will get Dlink router setup page opened.

Good Luck!

Thanks in advance!
