Hi there folks, this is going to sound like a pretty stupid scenario, but somehow or another I have lost my router's IP address. After setting it to 192.168.1.4 and changing some other settings I cannot access the configuration page. I would gladly use the reset button except that I Cannot for the life of me figure out how. The router is a Gigafast WF719-CAPR and others on the net have had trouble with the button. The manual is no help...
I have the thing bridging off my original network, and I did have it working 100% at one point. The odd thing is that now it still acts fine as a bridge (when I plug computers into the router, they can access the network/internet) The only thing is I can't access the config page with the IP address that I assigned!!!
I was wondering if there is some sort of software LAN monitor out there that I could use to detect the various devices in my network and their respective IP addresses. I know the thing is working with my network because it is enabling internet access on my computers, its just gone and hidden itself and I need a way to find it!!!
There ar several scanners out there, Do a search on Google. If connect to the router, then look at your port properties. See what it is setting your Gateway at. And try connecting to it. I know the older OS's you have to do a release and renew when you chage the router settings.
You could always reset the router to factory and start over.
