Question about NetGear MR814 Wireless Router
I have a MR814 v2 router which has worked well now for a few years. I have run into a problem since Telstra have changed their access method to cable. I don't know if this co-incidence or not. When I type in 192.168.0.1 I get back the message "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" and thus cannot access the settings page. Yet if I ping that address it sends and returns the relevant packages. I am still able to access other internet pages through the router albeit what appears to be at a slower speed. Help please.
Now login with 192.168.1.1

Hi, you may want to try: 1. reset the router to default settings - depress small button at the back of the router. all the leds in front wil blink and/or die. continue pressing on until one of the leds lights up again (might take a couple of seconds. if you can't still log to the web interface, you can try: 2. power off then disconnect all connection to the router. 3. connect your PC directly using a lan cable to one of the 4 lan connectors at the back and to the Lan Card/NIC of your PC; 4. Set your PCLAN to 192.168.0.2;255.255.255.0; 5. Power on the router and try to login to 192.168.0.1 with username: admin & password: password. Normally on power on, the router front leds blinks to indicate power on reset. Leds which remained steadily lit indicates a hardware failure (except for the power led). I have flashed this model with mr814v2_v5_03.img which solved internet slowdown and a couple of other problems. Hope this be of some help. Pls post again how it turns up with your router.

The web page of your router cannot be changed by the isp, but what may have changed is your network cards ip address, as thats the only wat the router cannot be reached if you are on a different address route, so check that your card is 192.168.0.X, the last being different to the router. the only other way this may have happened is if you have used an installation disc and it has changed all address so that they are different to what the routers manufactured address is and therefore cannot be altered but is allowing a static ip address or mac addresses for internet connection. The outer may have simply froze out, and you may have to reset the router by way of a pin hole button at the rear of the unit or underneath or firstly try a restart by unplugging it.
