Can´t access 192.168.1.1 (router admin page)

Hi, I have being working fine with my WL-520GC for one year, with 2 laptops connected via wireless. Suddenly, for some weeks, I am unable to access the router admin page (192.168.1.1). The IE browser stays "connecting" for several minutes without any info from the router (not even the user/pass request). I have run again the EZsetup but nothing changed. So, what shall I do to get back the admin page?

Thanks, regards.

Hi, I havent used my wireless router (WL-520GC) for approx 18 months, i just purchased a Toshiba laptop and want to connect to the internet via the router on my main P.C. Its asking me for a password...


First:
In order to get your router back to the original settings, you must push in the reset button (usually on the back of the router) for somewhere between 10 and 30 seconds depending on the router. You may need a pin or something small to push in the button, because it can be recessed. Once you have reset the router, the username and password will be changed to the defaults, admin and password, respectively. One thing you must remember is that resetting the router will change all of the router settings back to the factory settings. This means you will lose all of the changes you made since you got the router. Make sure to write down any things you've changed, so you can change them back after the reset. Also, I recommend updating to the latest firmware after the reset.

Second:
There a great article at General Router Setup.
Third;
There is a great article at Working with Windows Wireless Networks

Trying to install the Asus WL-520GC wireless router, but cd they sent is for PC. How do I intstall this on a macbook pro? By the way, I am not technical at all.


The cd is useful only when you want to install the drivers for using the router through USB port. In your and in most of the cases all you have to do, after the connections, is to start any browser (mozilla, internet explorer, safari e.t.c.), go at the router's page and make all the necessary settings with the web interface. In your router the default router's page is http://192.168.1.1 the user-name is admin and the password is admin.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

You need to enter the Router's Menu. Its web Based you can type http://192.168.1.1 from your web browser to get into your Router's Menu. It might come up with Username and password request put "admin" for both of them (its default).Since the Menu is very easy to understand you will find all settings including security that you needed. Make sure your laptop had DHCP enabled and Router connected to computer.

Good Luck
