Question about Computers & Internet
I was using the Philips router, SNA5630NS/05, in WindowsXP ok. until I had to re-install WindowsXP. It will not now work with Windows. Typing 192.168.2.1 will not make contact now. It did work previously, .
The router is configured (I think), since it works fine in Linux, Fedora 9.
Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".
Might it be that when you reinstalled XP, some of the drivers were not installed automatically, more specifically, the Networking Card (either WiFi or wired LAN)?
Initially, pls confirm that the networking hardware/devices were correctly installed by going to your System Properties, Hardware tab, Device Manager button, expand Network Adapters. There should be no yellow or red markings on the networking device.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: router will not work in XP
How does your Winxp computers connect to the router (wired or wireless)? What is the IP address that you are getting? You might also want to check if the network adapter is installed properly under device manager.
