Help needed on fixing wireless router. - Page 2

post #11 of 47
Thread Starter 
AAAh there we go yes...well you see what I was doing before was I had that wireless router hooked up to our current router (not wireless, Dlink). That is why I wasn't able to access the router page. But when I hooked it up to all the computers (without the normal router) it brought up this router config. page. which I had no idea what to put, it had like IP addresses IP subnet mask, and default gateway. So lol I guess I will just go with the router manual's setup deal. I can't try that now though because my mom kicked me off and made me put the other router back on.

I am going to try the manuals way of setting it up after she gets off, which will be in like a few hours

Oh, btw will setting up this other router on the computer like "uninstall" the other router, so that when he leaves and takes his wirless router and we hook up the normal non wirless Dlink router will it still work?

Think of a router as a small computer. All the settings you configure on it applies to that router alone. Then you configure your machines to talk with the router.

Then only thing to make sure of, is the routers OUTSIDE IP or WAN IP is set to obtain automatically (that is if your internet provider calls for that, which most do). If you manually set an IP on the outside or WAN side, chances are, you will not have internet access.

Okey dokey. So what I should do is just set it all to auto, and all that?

Alrighty, I got it all working-ish. Anyways i got the lappy to recognize the wireless connection, but I cannot get internet on it. That is because (I believe) that I need to config the wireless router for his lappy. Although I cannot reach the router homepage I type in (yes correctly) the router home address 192.168....and it says that it cannot reach it because it took too long to load or something.

I was looking through the manual and it said that you need to have wireless lan turned on. How do I do that?

But my main question is how the heck do I configure the router without being able to access the homepage. More or less...what am I doing wrong that isn't letting the homepage show up?

EDIT: Could the root of my problems be that I have two different routers hooked up? I have the Netgear one recieving internet from the Dlink one, just as a computer would.

Yeah i would try it with only one router hooked up. Could be causing a major headache for you.

Alrighty, I tried just having it as a single unit, but nope, it didn't work.
The page still says "it takes to long to load" or something.
I am clueless.
Anybody got any other ideas!? PLEASE!?

What does it mean if I plug a computer directly into the router to config it, but it doesn't load the router page?

Do an ipconfig /all in a command prompt window and tell us what is there.

hmmm. This shouldn't matter, but lets cover every possible angle, make sure you are plugged into port one.
Also, try putting a couple variations in the address bar.
1. https://192.168.1.1
2. http://192.168.1.1:8080

If not, you may have to reset the router again. When you do, unplug from power, hold down the reset button for about 20 seconds. Then while the button is still depressed, put in the power and release the button. I've had something like this happen before. If it didn't get a good reset, then the router only partially works.
