Question about Gateway Wireless-B Router (wbr-100)
Please help! Been trying since Saturday to connect new Linksys router to pc. Tried setup wizard that it came with, tried typing in ip address 192.168.1.1 and am getting an at&t error message and web results that don't help, I cannot access the web based site, I've used cmd with ipconfig/all, ipconfig/release, ipconfig everything! I've pinged the router with no success, I tried the cat 5 cable connected directly to pc, I've deleted browsing history and deleted cookies! Is it possible that At&t or Internet Explorer is set up automatically to something that is causing it not to recognize the router? Please help asap, we're going insane!!
You must start configuration with the router directly connected to the PC. You should factory reset the router, usually this means pushing the reset button for more than 10 seconds, check your manual, it may also mean that you need a paper clip and push an internal button. Once the linksys is reset; follow the setup guide which is typically connect the PC to the router. Reboot the PC, insert the CD ROM setup software (some times they do not want you to connect the router before you run setup, check the instructions again). Then you should go through the wizard. If that does not work, go to the linksys site and make sure that the router adress is 192.168.1.1 it could be different. Make sure you understand the address format is x.x.x.x in the browser it MUST BE TYPED http://192.168.1.1 enter; sometimes internet explorer has problems with IP addresses; firefox is better. You must know the default username and password. BTW, ALWAYS POST THE MODEL NUMBER TO GET HELP!

Put the setup CD in a drawer. Set your computer to Obtain a DHCP automatically. Plug in the router to the AC outlet. Plug the computer into any of the LAN ports of the router. Start the computer or do a DHCP renew. Now do an IPCONFIG. Do you have a 192.168.1.x address? Go to IE and use 192.168.1.1 in the address bar. Do you get the login screen? The username is left blamk, the password is "admin". Are you there?
Now, just because I put the cart before the horse, are you possibly using one of those 2wire or Netopia DSL routers? Is it possible that the IP address for it is 192.168.1.254 or worse, 1.1?
Bzzt. Give your router a neat address like 192.168.1.251 and turn off DHCP. Now, plug the WAN port into the modem. and point your browser to 192.168.1.251. Whoa! Did I guess right?
Let me know.
