Question about MSI RG54G2 Router (MS-6848-002)
Can you ping the router? I mean open a dos shell, type ping -tf 192.168.1.254 - what are the results? Maybe the ping fails, because you need to have your pc set to the same subnet address, to access the router on that IP. Test ping to your own gateway address first.. That will work & show you what to expect from a working ping. You get the gateway address by opening a dos shell & typing ipconfig /all - that shows the current IP address plus the gateway address. Actually, the gatway address might be the same as the router config address, unless you have a NAT function turned on.. Anyway, if you change your IP address to 192.168.1.252 - For example, you will no longer be able to access the internet, but shud be able to enter the configuration web page of the router.. Try the router default settings first. Another thing is that some routers require a direct cable called a 'crossover' cable to connect to the router or you have to go via a hub or a switch, with standard ethernet cables.. This probably looks confusing, but if it does not help, pls post your questions here.. Rgds,
