Question about MSI RG54G2 Router (MS-6848-002)

1 Answer

Unable to open configuration utility

I tried pinging 192.168.1.254. Got endless replies from 58.71.0.76: 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 58.71.0.76 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,

Hi Martin,
with all what you say, it looks like that your hardware is ok. That's a good start.
There are several possibilities what can be wrong: either your modem is not configured correctly, or some of the setting in your computer are not right.
Let's start with the computer:
1. open a command prompt (WindowsKey+R), type "cmd" and hit "Enter".
2. In the following window type "ipconfig /all" (there is a space before the "/").
3. Your output should look similar to mine:

Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection
Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : XX-XX-XX-XX-XX
Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes
Autoconfiguration Enabled . . : Yes
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.xxx
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.1
DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.1
DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.1
Lease Obtained. . . . . . . . . . : Friday, August 07, 2009 17:32:33
Lease Expires . . . . . . . . . . : Saturday, August 08, 2009 17:32:33


Since the default IP address of your modem is 192.168.2.1, you IP address has to be in that range: 192.168.2.2-254.
If your IP address starts with 169.xxx.xxx.xxx or is 0.0.0.0, you have a connectivity problem. (Let me know and post your output here, if that's the case.)

Now type in that command prompt "ping 192.168.2.1" and hit "Enter" - replace the numbers with what you see under your Default Gateway.
My result looks like this:

Pinging 192.168.2.1 with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from 192.168.2.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64
Reply from 192.168.2.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64
Reply from 192.168.2.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64
Reply from 192.168.2.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64

Ping statistics for 192.168.2.1:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms


This shows that you can connect to your modem. If you get a "Request timed out." reply, then your computer can not connect to your modem. Also, let me know if that's the case.

Now go back to the command prompt and type "ping www.google.com" and hit "Enter". My result looks like this:

Pinging www.l.google.com [74.125.65.99] with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from 74.125.65.99: bytes=32 time=87ms TTL=50
Reply from 74.125.65.99: bytes=32 time=85ms TTL=50
Reply from 74.125.65.99: bytes=32 time=87ms TTL=50
Reply from 74.125.65.99: bytes=32 time=87ms TTL=50

Ping statistics for 74.125.65.99:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 85ms, Maximum = 87ms, Average = 86ms


This shows two things:
  1. You can get to the outside world
  2. DNS is working properly
Now copy the IP address returned by this command (74.125.65.99 in my case) and copy it into the URL bar of your browser. If google shows up, then you have a DNS problem. What that means is that the translation from web addresses (www.google.com) to IP address (74.125.65.99) is not working. Go back and check you entry for DNS servers in ipconfig / all. Is that number identical to your Default Gateway?

How to set up DNS manually:

  1. Click on start
  2. Go to control panel
  3. If your control panel is in classic view click on Network Connections
  4. Right click on your Wireless network icon
  5. Click Properties
  6. Select Internet Protocol(TCP/IP)
  7. Click on the Properties button
  8. Now select the following option: "Use the following DNS server address"
  9. Under "Preferred DNS server address" enter 208.67.222.222
  10. Under "Alternate DNS address" enter 208.67.220.220
  11. Click on OK until all windows are closed
Some points on your modem:
  1. If you don't have a manual, you can get it here.
  2. Make sure you have entered your user credentials for Bell (see page 11 in the manual)
Ok - sorry for the long post, but I tried to catch all culprits. If there is anything you don' t understand or it is still not working, let me know - I'm happy to help. If the outputs form the command prompt look very different from mine, copy them and post them here.

Easy way to do that? - Go back to your command prompt.
  1. Type ipconfig /all > C: ixya.txt (hit ENTER)
  2. Type ping 192.168.2.1 >> C: ixya.txt (hit ENTER)
  3. Type ping www.google.com >> C: ixya.txt (hit ENTER)
  4. Open My Computer, go to your C: drive and you will find a text file called fixya or fixya.txt, which contains all the information.
  5. Come back here and paste the information in a comment.
Let me know if this was helpful and what you found out!

Click "RUN"
Enter 'cmd' and press ENTER.
Enter 'ping www.yahoo.com' and press ENTER.
Do you get output like:

Ping statistics for 209.131.36.158:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),

If so, then your Internet connection is working fine.
If not, then you have no Internet connection.

Can not get on the internet


What do you mean cannot get on the internet? when you are plugged into the router does this mean you cannot see any web pages? are you able to pull an IP address from the router? Check if your able to ping Gateway (router) and get a reply back. To do this go to your start command then run and type CMD and hit enter... a dos like window will come up then type the command ipconfig and hit enter again... look for the "default gateway" ex) 192.168.0.1 and then try to ping it! do this by typing ping 192.168.0.1 you should get something like this.

Reply from 163.254.16.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=255

if you do then that means your getting a reply back from the router and the connection between the 2 are fine. If the router is unable to obtain an ip address from your vendor.. there could be multiple reasons why. Does your provider do mac filtering? also you can try upgrading the firmware on the unit by going to linksys.com and searching for the latest firmware.. let me know how your tests go.

I would suggest a few things 1) see if a firmware update for the device 2) It may be a DNS issue can you post the model what status are the lights on the repeater next do an IPCONFIG /ALL - see later and some ping tests to see if its a DNS ISSUE ipconfig /all TWO Methods to do that - some people have problems with ONE---- ONE --------------------------------- start run cmd ipconfig /all rightclick in the box select all enter control key + C key - to copy then reply here and control key + V to paste TWO ----------------------------------------------- Start, Run, CMD to open a DOS window and type: IPCONFIG /ALL >C:\RESULT.TXT Open C:\RESULT.TXT with Notepad and copy/paste the entire results here.
