Router settings - can't access the address

Hi, I cannot access my compusa wireless router (SKU 333629). I've searched these forums but have found not help so far.

The address is supposed to be 192.168.2.1 but Netscape (I also tried IE) cannot see the router even though I am using it to browse the web.

Anyone know what to do?

regards,

  1. PS I can ping the router too. Just can't get access to change the settings for security etc etc
  2. Is it a CompUSA router????

    When you try to access the address in IE what comes up??? Something like "page cannot be displayed?"


    Verify that the router has web accessibility also.
  3. are you trying it thru the wireless?
    Some routers wont let you do that for security reasons. Try a wired connection if not already using one.

    Do an ip config and see what the default gateway is. This should be the address to get to the setup. Just to make sure it hadnt changed.
  4. Does the manual show exactly how to get to the webconfig? There may be something else to tac on there like https:// or a port number. That isn't very common on home routers but ya never know ;)

    I have the same problem... (another tread)
    I have tried an ipconfig and tried the adress in standard gateway: 85.24.39.254 (strange right?) But without any luck...
    Have also tried restarting...
  6. I experienced a similar thing with a different router with my fiancee's laptop

    Using a wired, or wireless connection with IE, for some reason ... I couldn't access the GUI (I think I got a page can not be displayed error)

    Plugging it into my desktop .. all was well ....

    Good lcuk
  7. Look at your default Gateway address and try connecting to that. If 192.168.0.1 try 192.168.0.254 if that doesnt work to a reset to factory a couple of times.

    Did they supply a setup CD with the router, if so try it, it should know where to find it.
  8. i have the same experience with my westell 327 modem/router, i get "page cannot be displayed whenever i access the modem, ive tried doing these:
    *ip address = 192.168.1.47 gateway = 192.168.1.1

    disabled firewall, accessed the ip address through the run command, ping 192.168.1.1 (ok), manually typed in the ip address and gateway in local area connection, reset the modem.

    nothing works :( sure hope someone can give us a suggestion regarding this issue
  9. Try http://192.168.1.254 sometimes they move high but most cases the same as the gateway.

    I had one that was really odd "http://nameserialnumber.config"

    If you you have a manual may want to take a peak in it.
  10. I have a cd with my linksys router, but it chrashes in the end where it tries to connect to the router....

    Seems like its a curse..?!! ;)
  11. Well in order to correct any thing you do need to some how connect to it.

    You will proably have to blow the router back to factory. Most routers you hold the reset button in for 10 sec. Some you have to hold in when you power it up. You will need to refer to he manual if you have it.
  12. Ah!!! Linksys at it's best.
  13. Dug up an old thread, but I'm having the exact same problem with an old D-Link DI-614+. Cannot navigate to 192.168.0.1 or ping 192.168.0.1, but can still use internet. Also, I have an Xbox on one of the other ports of the router and it cannot access xbox live. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Please mention Model Number of the device and also try to connect it through hypertrm, or console . if it is not a live router.
    Go through the manuals , give me the model number of the router so that i can give you the proper steps to connect the router.
  15. Netgear CG3100D (Wireless-N Cable Gateway issued by ONO in Spain). All my computers on the network can connect to the internet without issue, can share files, see each other etc. All devices can be pinged, including the router. However accessing the configuration page seems to be impossible over wireless or wired connections. Hopefully someone can shed some light on this for me. IP of the router is 192.168.1.1 DHCP range from 1.3 - 1.254. 192.168.1.2 is an additional bridge with NAT and DHCP etc disabled, just provides more ports to connect to the network. The configuration page for this device is curiously accessible however.

    That isn't your gateway...that's your external IP most likely...

    If you're running Windows, type ipconfig /all in your command console and there's a heading there that will tell you your gateway. Try accessing that via your browser. If it doesn't work, try pinging it from the console...

  18. hI, i have the same netgear issued by ONO Spain (usless doesnt send much wifi signal or uninterupted connection) I want to use a tp-link AC1750 Archer c7 as my main router for wifi and desk top connection . I have heard i can do this by bridge/puente. Do you know the exact step by step method?
  19. I am wired (Cat 5e) and I cannot connect to the router's webpage (192.168.2.1) my internal IP is 192.168.2.2 so I am within the ranges allowed. Tried Chrome and IE, no cigar. Anyone out there that can help me? It is a Belkin router by the way, fairly new.
  20. I have this kind of problem very often. In my case, the problem, I think, is the capacity of the router's microprocessor. I can connect if I cut all traffic (specially P2P sharing software like torrent clients). In some circumstance, I can successfully connect to router if I turn it off and then turn it on and connect to router's web config in the first seconds.
