Question about Nexland Internet Security Box Pro800 (200030) Router
After power was restored, our three PC's were unable to connect. I did the following. 1-I tried connecting to the router via browser (192.168.0.1) which was alwas the default IP address, I could not connect. 2-I did ipconfig on my PC and strange enough my address was 169.254.104.36 3-I did ipconfig on the second PC and it's ip was 169.254.141.238 4-I didn't bother going further, because it's obvious that the router is dishing out ip addresses that are strange. How do I RESET the router?
There may be a reset hole located on underside or rear of unit, but the ip address numbers that you mention are more than likely the ones set by windows, as is; what happens when you ask Windows to repair the connection, the DNS settngs may be incorrect also and is why you cannot get into the router. Your router may have reset itself and is not enabled to allocate automatic ip addresses so check that the DHCP is enabled.

If the normal reset does not work, try to press and hold the Reset button for three seconds. The Ethernet light should go OFF then back ON. Unplug and re-plug the router's power adapter while pressing the Reset button. Keep holding the reset until the power light stops blinking.
NOTE: The router must be powered ON when you press the Reset button.
