If the SSID changed to the default then you know that the router reset to the default settings and you should set your computer to automatically get its IP address via DHCP. I always set up my routers through a Wired connection first, just to setup the router and then go with the wireless. The default for the router should be 192.168.0.1 and subnet 255.255.255.0 . If the computer is set with a static IP address, change it to obtain an IP address automatically or the network card will not bother even looking for an address.

Please see the Reset the Default Factory Setting please read it the Detail I have a WAP4410n wireless access point, I have reset it to factory default by pressing the reset button for 30 seconds. I am able to ping its default ip 192.168.1.245 through its default ssid "ciscosb" if I configure my static ip was solved by connecting through the lan cable, and setting manually the ip to 192.168.1.0/24 network, and accessing 192.168.1.245 through web, the reason why the connecting through WiFi was working because the management web access through wireless is disabled by default
Hi, As you have changed the default IP Address of the router, you can access the router by using the newly assigned IP (192.168.1.11) and new username and password (if you have made any changes to the defaults).
Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya! CreativeTECH
1. Do not attempt to configure your wireless router with a wireless connection. If the wireless connection gets interrupted, you may (probably will) not be able to reconnect to the router. 2. Go to http://www.pingplotter.com/freeware.html 3. Download and install pingplotter. The free version. 4. Run ping plotter to determine the IP address of your router. Click on tucows.com and click on trace. Your router will be the FIRST IP address listed. 5. Write the IP address down. If it is not 192.168.0.1 someone has already configured the router. 6. Log in to your router using a wired connection with the IP address you wrote down. (if you cannot do this due to fthe router being pre-configured by your Internet Provider or other problems, you can force your router to reset to the factory defaults and configure it yourself.
6a. Use a straightened paper clip or similar object to force the router to reset itself to the factory defaults. Put the paper clip in the reset hole next to the WAN connector on the router and hold it for 10 seconds. This will force reset your router. 7. Remove the power from your router for at least five minutes. This will cause your IP to reset his connection to your router. 8. Log back in to your router using a wired connection. 9. The default D-link IP address is 192.168.0.1. The D-link default user name is admin. The password is blank. No NOT blank, just enter nothing but the user name and click on the next button. 10. You should be able to configure the router to your satisfaction. 11. Remember to change the Administrator log on information (name and password). 12. You may find it necessary to duplicate a MAC address in order to connect to your IP.
If you did not configure the Netgear wireless router and changed the default settings and the default password password, then your wireless system is open to anyone hacking into your system and change your wireless router's settings and they can hack into your computers and your Internet connection. The Linksys expander will increase the wireless range to give a wider coverage to your router.
I suggest you reset the Netgear back to the factory defaults (press the pinhole button on the back of the Netgear router until the LEDs flash then release this button,
The configure the Netgear as follows :- To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: - 1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable. 2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address. 3. Enter the router setup, login and password 4. Change the admin password 5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast. 6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA). 7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router. 8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings. 9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router. 10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.
The usual setup IP address for DLink wireless routers is
and the user login = admin and no password is required.
If you have not changed the password and the default SSID then it is recommended that you set a password and change the SSID so that it will help prevent someone hacking into your DLink wireles router and changing your setings to their advantage..
Once reset right click on the connection in the task bar ( icon with two computers) click status, click properties, scroll down and select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), click properties, click use the following IP address:, and add the following:
You need to be connected using wired Ethernet (PC's LAN card to Router's Ethernet Port (at the back)). This is the preferable INITIAL way to configure the router before going wireless. Also it would be to your advantage to initially set your PC (that will be used for configuring the router) to "Specify an IP address" (static settings) and not "Obtain an IP address automatically."
For a PC connected via UTP networking cable attached to a Belkin F5D6130 AP, the networking settings could be: IP Address 192.168.2.2 Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway 19*184.108.40.206 DNS Server 192.168.2.1 Reboot
