I have a Belkin Pre-N router and I just can't get to the setup page on it. I've done this before on another Belkin router on win2000 machines. Now I have a XP comp and the thing just gives me a "can't find server" or what not error. I tried my machine and the computer connected driectly to it. I tried IE and Firefox, none worked.

Could it be newer version of something messing me up? I have no idea. 192.168.2.1 is the number.

What IP address is your computer getting?
Green link on the cable running into the router?
Can you ping it?
Are you using a Static IP maybe?

you plugged the cable from the modem into the wrong port, you have to plug it into the wan port.

Okay, scrath that IP, its 192.168.0.9.
The connection is fine, that IS NOT the issue. What is happening is I am getting a "server unavailable" from my ISP, a satalitte service. I really don't have a clue, and I really would like some advice because I can't do crap that involves ports till I get this working.

Looks very similar to when I get an outage, of course what do I know. I guess I'll just e-mail Belkin about this.

And upon viewing my post my I got an outage(sigh).<A HREF="http://tinypic.com/e9ammw.jpg" target="_new">pic</A>

you get a 192.168.0.x address but your routers ip address is 192.168.2.1? usually they are the same, try connecting to 192.168.0.1

That brings up my Direcway sytem control page, my connectivity info more or less.

Anyway I e-mailed Belkin and I'll see what they say.

Have you tried the reset button on your router?

sounds to me like you are getting an already translated address from your directway modem (that would mean it has a router built in) and that has somthing to do with you not being able to get to the router setup page. i still have a feeling its not wired correctly.

if your trying to view your routers settings page... im pretty sure that has zero to do with your internet. you don't need Internet connection to access your router config script.

there's usually a general ip you plug into your browser and user/pass to access.... atleast that's how linksys and netgear and those work.

you probley have something wired wrong.

but anyway try the reset button, and try reading that little booklet that came in the box. yep that thing actually tells you stuff.

you seem to be getting an ip address from your directway box, that matches the ip format you are getting. the only reason you would be getting a 192 address from that box is if it has dhcp, that means its got to be a router.

Everything is wired right, I'm not even sure how it would work incorrectly. I guess I'll just unplug the modem and try to access it offline.

tell us how you have it hooked up.

I might, but I need online gaming! Anyway I tried it offline, just unplugged the modem. It didn't work on my computer thats at the recieving end. I'll have to get around around to testing the computer directly connected to the router, but that working is doubtful.

I'll just have to see what Belkin says(if anything)at this point. Or maybe I just try to get DSL or something.

Use the reset button the router. Follow the directions on how to reset the router. Then, hook your PC up to the router, plug into port 3 on the router. Then, turn your PC on, check your IP address (start - run, type CMD, hit ok, type IPCONFIG). You should have an IP that looks like 192.168.0.100.
At that point, hook your modem into your router in the WAN/Internet port on the back of it. If that port isn't there, there should be something indicating that 1 port is slightly different than the rest. That's where your DSL modem hooks into.

That that point, log back into your router (since you should be able to after you reset the router and checked your IP). You'll need to configure your settings for DSL within the router, at that point it should start picking up an IP address. You should be good to go at that point.

That's the full step. If something doesn't work, honestly, you're better off bringing in an outside person who knows more about networking than yourself. Pay them for their time too, don't be impolite. :)
