Ipconfig media disconnected


Do you have an internet connection on your computer? My Toshiba shows all media is disconnected and even shows a red X on my internet connection, but I am connected to the internet. I believe it is a driver that needs to be updated. Your question is very vague so I can not really give you a solid answer.

Can you tell me the default IP address for this unit as I have lost the pass word and need to reset the unit


If your computer is plugged into the router, you can easily get the router's IP address by going to your command prompt and typing "ipconfig" without the quotes.

Command Prompt is under Start (or Orb if using Win7 or Vista) > All Programs > Accessories

After typing "Ipconfig" and hitting return, command prompt should display something like this:

Windows IP Configuration

Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : blah.blah.comcast.net.
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.196
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected
Ethernet adapter PdaNet Broadband Connection:
Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected



The router's address is your "Default Gateway." You should be able to put that address into an Internet Explorer window and it will bring up the configuration interface.


If you find this helpful, please rate me -- trying to get my "Wiz" rating so that I can provide Premium service.

Thanks,
