Proxies seem to have broken my router.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
A friend of mine encouraged me to try Proxy-Mate, and either through some weird bug it caused (or a tremendous coincidence) my internet was knocked out for ~8 hours and when it came back my IP address was changed permenantly. I don't think it was proxymate so much as my ISP doing a knee-jerk reaction to something about it that it didn't like. At any rate... this somehow caused my router to no longer recognize my internet. I can still connect directly to the modem, but the moment I try and include the router my computer gives me an unable to connect error. My wireless devices can see the router just fine, but they too cannot connect to the internet through it.

I know there's a way to access the router's settings somehow, but I've completely forgotten how to do so. At this point I'm considering buying a more user-friendly (read: noob-friendly) router. The one I have now is a D-Link DIR-655. Anyone have any tips for either possible solution (fixing it or replacing it)?

I've tried leaving the router connected for several hours in hopes that it might cycle through some kind of internal check-list or something... fix the problem himself. But no such luck, it looks like it's really something I'm going to have to correct myself (or give it up for dead).

You can access your router within a webpage; the default is usually 192.168.0.1 or simply launch CMD and type ipconfig to see the IP of your Default Gateway.

People need to be very careful using proxies, you need to be 100% sure they are trust worthy.

It wasn't even over anything important. It was just to view some of those YouTube vids that say "Sorry, can't play that in your country." I didn't realize it'd nuke my WiFi capabilities.

I think I've fixed it, but in the process I did multiple things, and I want to make sure I haven't messed things up... I used ipconfig in the command prompt to fetch the information I'd need to enter it all manually into the D-link settings, but I also clicked a button that says "DHCP Release", before it was at "DHCP Renew". Does it make a difference which one I leave it on? I know it has something to do with how my ISP will send me my IP address.
