    Thanks for your suggestions, unfortunately they didn't help me get into the router settings. The gateway address was 192.168.1.1, so I changed this to 192.168.200.254 but browser was unable to find it. Any other suggestions please?

Hi g_c1,

If you haven't changed the default IP, then your trying the wrong IP #. The default IP for that Router is 192.168.200.254. See if that helps.

Also, you can always go to the Start and Click on Run, and at the line enter cmd. When you get to dos type in ipconfig /all this will give you a list of all IP assigned to that computer. The one that your looking for is called the Gateway. That line has your IP address of the router.

Good Luck

Mark

    Ok,





    Confirm that the physical connection between your computer and the Gateway is OK, and that the link status LEDs on the Gateway and NIC are illuminated and indicating the same speed (10Mbps or 100Mbps). Some NICs do not have status LEDs, in which case a diagnostic program may be available that can give you this information.

     Ensure that you have configured your computer properly.



    Setting Up Your Computers. Restart your computer while it is connected to the Gateway to ensure that your computer receives an IP address.

     When entering the address of the Gateway into your web browser, ensure that you include the full URL including the http:// prefix (eg. http://192.168.1.1). Or the (http://192.168.200.254)

     If you cannot browse to the Gateway, use the winipcfg utility in Windows 95/98/ME to verify that your computer has received the correct address information from the Gateway. From the Start menu, choose Run and then

    enter cmd, at the prompt type the ipconfig /all. Check that the computer has an IP address of the form 192.168.1.xxx (where xxx is in the range 2-254), the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0, and the default Gateway is 192.168.1.1 or whatever. (the address of the

    Gateway). If these are not correct, use the Release and Renew functions to obtain a new IP address from the Gateway. Use the ipconfig command-line utility to perform the same functions. Type in ipconfig ? and it will give you all the commands and how to enter them.





     If you still cannot browse to the Gateway, then use the Discovery program if you still have it, if not you can download it from HERE. Just enter your model number of the Office Connect, as you see there are a lot of them.



    And restore the driver for the router.



    If that doesn't work, then their is probably something mighty wrong with that router.



    Good Luck,



    Mark

    If that getting you to the router then great. You can also renew your ip's with the cmd ipconfig /renew or ipconfig /renew **



    ** equals the device's name first two digits.



    Great to hear you got access



    Thanks

Linksys sd208 reset


The reset button is usually at the back of the router. If you are unable to locate it you can reset it using a web based set-up page. Make sure you connect your router to a PC using wired connection and perform the following steps:
Step 1:
Launch a web browser like Internet Explorer.
Step 2:
In the Address bar, enter "192.168.1.1" as the router's default IP address then press [Enter]. If this doesn't work or if the IP address of your router has been changed, enter it instead.
Step 3:
Enter "admin" in the Password field then leave the User name blank. If you have set up a User name and Password for your Linksys router before, enter your personalized credentials instead.
QUICK TIP: For Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers, you can enter "http://myrouter.local" on the Address bar to access its web-based setup page.
The router's web-based setup page should now appear from here you can reset the router.

Where re my router settings


they are normally accessed by going to the router's settings page on a computer connected to your network, preferably hard wired as opposed to a wireless connection. The address of this page varies by make, model, and network setup but is most often 192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1, or 192.168.100.1 You would just pull up internet explorer and enter the address into the address bar.

You typically need to set up a router through a web browser (such as internet explorer). They are typically given IP address 192.168.1.1 as default, so you could try attaching the computer to the router with a network cable then typing

192.168.1.1

into the address line of internet explorer. That should take you to the router set-up page, where you can enter your username & PW
