Can't access router through browser

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I have a Linksys WRT54G with a DD WRT firmware installed. My wireless connectivity stinks, but I've found that if I bridge the router to the router at incoming broadband connection, I can much improve my download speed and consistancy.

Of course it has to be set to the same subnet as the original router which it is. The default gateway is 192.168.0.1 and the Linksys router was set to 192.168.0.6, or possibly xxx.xxx.1.6, I can't remember. Anyway I have to get into the router's setting and configuration menu and I can't do it. I just get a message about the connection timing out or the page not being available.

I've used outside programs as well as ipconfig and windows network information and it does not identify the router on the network. I'm not really advanced at this, but I can usually set up a small network without breaking anything. Any ideas?

Yes, I can reset and bridge it all over again but I don't really feel like doing that. It's also possible that it will yield the same result that the router's homepage is still inaccessible.

Maybe you still have a static IP set on the router that you have set to bridge mode, and the router that is controlling DHCP and NAT can't assign an IP?

I have done this procedure before and the address was always static. It was always 10.0.1.6 and this is always how I accessed it. I don't think the ability to establish a dynamic IP was even a possibility.

Can you open a Command Prompt from the Start menu and do 'ipconfig /all', screenshot it then post it here?

I don't have the software to do this properly. The cutoff on the bottom are tunnel adapters which are not relevant and the VMware adapters are virtual adapters. It's really the LAN which should have the info.

You should be able to.
If you have used a static ip, is the ip reserved on the router that provides dhcp server?

Code:
ipconifg /all >> %userprofile%/Desktop/myipinfo.txt

upload the textfile.


edit:
can you ping the router?
can you see the ProblemRouter as a client (with ip and mac) on the primary router (used as dhcp server)?

Maybe try pull setup apart and reconfigure the problem router properly from the get go, ensure it doesn't have an ip assigned anywhere, dhcp server is off etc. get it's mac address and then put it in bridge mode.
Go to the main router, find your address reservations, use the mac address to assign a specific IP to the problemrouter, you should be good to go.

Is the router in repeater brige mode? if so you wont be able to access the web interface, i think it puts it into layer 2 mode, so it never gets a IP address that you can access

I don't have access to the primary router so I can't see if the problem router is listed. I bridged it because wireless adapters have a difficult time getting a consistent signal from the primary. It's simply in "client bridge" mode, no repeater bridge or wireless bridge. I pinged the address I had manually set it to and I received a reply that this host is unreachable. I've never seen that before.

As much as I'd like to troubleshoot this and see what the heck is the problem, it's probably a lot easier to reset it and start over as I can do this in under 10 minutes. It would spare other's time as well, but I do appreciate the help smile.gif

Put the main modem/router on 192.168.0.1/24 and the secondary on 192.168.0.2/24 then turn off DHCP on the secondary router. Your gateway should be 192.168.0.1 and you should be able to access both routers via IP address.
