and now it seems that i cant even get into my router via the usual 192.168.2.1 which ive done a million times to set up mac address filtering... but everyones connected to the internet via wireless... im connected and can use the web like usual but when i try to get into the router it gives me that generic page "the connection has timed out" "the connection was reset" ect....
Connect computer to router by ethernet cable. Go Start, All Programs, Accessories, Command Prompt and at the black and white cursor type IPCONFIG /ALL . In the results you should see the router's IP address next to the word gateway.
If no joy try the reset button on the router. The default IP address for many routers is 192.168.0.1 or 1.1
