    I type 192.168.1.1 into my browser type username and password and then get nothing----it's just a blank page. Do I need to reset the router? Start over? I can get on the internet and the network. I'm not using it as a wireless router, just a wired one. I wanted to make sure the wireless was turned off.

    Thanks

    if your running WinxP goto Run type

    cmd

    then in the command prompt window type

    ipconfig /all

    see what the Default gateway says it is. this will be the routers IP (or should be)

    have you any proxy cache enabled in MSIE options?

    Ok go into MSIE Tools, Internet Options, Connections, LAN Settings, Proxy Server. if anything is enabled here disable it. if nothing is enabled try disabling any windows firewall that maybe blocking you accssing the local IP address range.

    failing this, then try resetting the router. it may be the httpd process is dead so a reset may work.

    Try clearing your cache and temp internet files in your browser

    Have you tried unplugging the power supply, wait a few minutes and restore power to the router?

    By the way, is your wireless network protected?

    I'll disconnect the power supply. I thought I had the SSID broadcast disabled. I wanted to check on it when I ran into this problem. I never set up the wireless network since I don't have a laptop. If the SSID isn't disabled it's only my neighbors I have to worry about right? I'll check back in a few minutes. I'll power down the whole system.

    I'll power down the whole system. I thought I had the SSID broadcast disabled-----that's what I was checking on. If it isn't then it's only my neighbors that I have to worry about right? The last time I tried to post this reply it didn't go through.

    It worked----I tried to post about an hour ago, but it still isn't here. Just one more question---------Is disableing SSID broadcast good enough?
