Question about Computers & Internet
Are you connected to the router using ethernet? I would connect with an ethernet cable, and then try going to the address.

Go to the manufacturers' site and get their install and operators manual.
It is usually easiest to run the install wizard, but be sure to be ready to set the items listed below.
Things to set:
Note: Routers are intended to be set by geeks. You have to SAVE EVERY page, or the changes will be lost. A geek knows this (apparently). The router gives no protest...just dumps your changes.
1. Login password (RECORD THIS!!). Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.
2. Set a recognizable system ID.
3. Invoke wireless security of at least WEP.
a. Assign your own access code, 10 digit home or cell #. Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.
4. Check that your router is set to broadcast its' presence.
5. Change the channel of the wireless to 11, and avoid conflict with landline cordless phones. (Big issue, even the neighbors can interrupt).
There are more secure settings available, all the way down to only allowing certain MAC addresses in. A MAC address is a digit unique to each and every network card. Like a fingerprint.
