Cannot access router setup page.

Archived from groups: alt.comp.networking.connectivity (More info?)

I have a Linksys BEFVP41 VPN router. By default, it takes an IP address of
192.168.1.1, but this IP is already in use on my network, so I changed it to
192.168.3.1. Now, all the computers on the network can access internet, but
none can view the router setup page.

Thanks if anyone can help

    did you go to http://192.168.3.1 ? The router setup page moves when you
    reassign the network. Oh wait.... your pc's are also at 192.168.3.XX right?
    You cant have your pc's at 192.168.1.XX and the router at 192.168.3.XX (on
    the same side that is)
    On your LAN side of the router, put every device on the same subnet,
    192.168.3.XX in your case
    What was at 1.1 before? there shouldnt be anything at that address except
    another router. Im assuming it was a pc you assigned a static ip to,
    right?, re-assign it to a higher ip .40 or something, anything greater than
    ending in .1
    Or better yet, set up each device on your network for DHCP
    for PC's dont use .1 or .255 - use something in between.
    Everything on your lan must be on the same exact sub net. You can choose
    anything you want but keep it consistant: If you want to use 192.168.1 then
    every pc has an IP of 192.168.1.X where X is greater than 1 and less than
    255. Therouter address is what determines the Y in 192.168.Y.X so Y in this
    case is 1 and the router will be at 192.168.1.1. If you choose Y as 3 then
    all PC's must be at 192.168.3.X (where X is Greater than 1 and less than
    255) and now the router must be at 192.168.3.1
