Having trouble accessing router's setup page?

Note: If you cannot access the router's page, check the computer if it's getting a valid IP address from the router. Click Start then type CMD on the Search box then press Enter. A black window called Command Prompt will appear, just type IPCONFIG then press Enter. It will display the IP address.
- Scenario 1. If the IP address starts with 169.x.x.x --- not getting IP from router
  • Scenario 2. If the IP address starts with 192.168.1.x --- getting IP from router
  • For scenario 2, since the computer is getting IP from the router, try to PING the router to test connectivity. Open the Command Prompt again, type PING then press Enter. If you see the word reply 4 times then it means the computer is communicating with the router.
  • Clear the cache, cookies and history of your Internet Browser then try to access the router page again.

Try to obtain a new IP from your router. Open your command prompt, type cmd, then type (ipconfig /release) after that type (ipconfig /renew) and try to connect again.

Try to ping a particular site. Open the command prompt type in (ping for example, if you the site reply it means you have a browser problem. Uninstall your browser and install a new one.

Linksyswireless-N WRT120N The ethernet ports dont work when connected to my desktop but works on other pc's or my laptop.

If you can use the same cable and ethernet port to connect to the router with a laptop, or other computers, then you have isolated the problem to your non-connecting computer. Plug in the computer with the connection issue with the same ethernet cable. Next, open up command prompt and type in the command "ping". This command checks your NIC card to see if it is working properly (if you get "Reply from", then your NIC card is good, but if not, then you need to replace your NIC card.). If your NIC card is good, ping your default gateway (i.e. using a linksys with a default IP, type "ping" in command prompt) Your router's private IP Address, which can be found by successfully connecting another pc and, on the connected pc, typing "ipconfig" in command prompt, is also known as the default gateway. If you get 4 "Request timed out.", or "Reply from 169.X.X.X" ("X" being any number), then your network connection settings on your pc are incorrect. To fix these settings, assuming that you have DHCP enabled on both your router and the computer being troubleshooted, use the commands "ipconfig /release" and then "ipconfig /renew" in command prompt. Give the computer a minute or two to allow the computer time to acquire a new IP Address, and the correct configuration from your router. Now your computer should be connecting properly.

Cannot connect although plugged in

Check the ipaddress. Type ipconfig in command prompt. Then ping a website in command prompt if u get proper ip address e.g Try to ping in command prompt. If u are unable to connect. Tried to release renew Ip address.
Type ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew in command prompt. If you are able to ping google and still unable to connect to website using internet explorer, then issue with browser or with OS.
