Question about MSI RG54G2 Router (MS-6848-002)
I tried pinging 192.168.1.254. Got endless replies from 188.8.131.52: TTL expired in transit. I tried pinging default gateway 10.2.0.1. Getting replies from that address: bytes=32 time ___ TTL=254. I have no idea what any of this means. I also don't know how to change my ip address. I'm just trying to follow instructions to activate FTP on a Dlink DNS-323.
The fact that you got a response from 184.108.40.206 probably means the ping is getting out on to the internet.. Why it's address translating from the IP you used to ping, I don't know..
Anyway, I suggest you disconnect the internet cable from the router, then connect one only cable to the router (into an ethernet port) The other end to your PC ethernet port - Change your IP address on your PC to 192.168.1.252
To change your IP address to a new static IP, select the start button in the bottom left corner (on Win XP) Go to the control panel. Select the icon called 'Network Connections'.
With the ethernet cable plugged in between your PC & the router, one of the icons in 'Network Connections' should show connected. Highlight it & right mouse click it, select 'Properties'. (There are several ways to do all this..) Slide bar down to 'Internet Protocol' TCP/IP. Highlight it & right mouse click to select properties.
There you will see the option of setting your own 'static' IP address. (Be careful here, that you know how to restore to what you currently have, because if you change it, & cannot restore to the correct setup, you may not be able to access the internet again)
I'm guessing your pc is currently setup as 'Obtain an IP address automatically'. If this is the case, you need to select 'use the following ip address'. Then add the 'fake' IP address 192.168.1.252
By the way, what was the results of the dos shell test I mentioned earlier? When you typed 'ipconfig /all' ?? We really need to know that. If you are unsure of how to do that, select the start button, bottom left corner of your screen (in Win XP) and selct 'run' Then type cmd and 'OK'. Then type ipconfig /all - then take note of the results.
Once you have changed the IP address on your PC, you should be able to access the router configuration to make changes. You know how to do that? Open Internet Explorer the web browser.. Then just type in the router IP address, the config. page should come up. You may have to boot the PC after the IP address change, just to be sure it gets recognised.
If you have problems with any of this, send me your email address, so I can send you lots of screen shots.. It's much easier to see what to do. It's quite difficult to describe all the above in words. Let me know how you go.. Rgds,
