    I need to do some portforwarding and i can't get into my routers homepage. We had a computer specialist come and work on our computer and he changed the ip adress to the router. I have tried reseting it in every way.

    - holding reset for 30 seconds.

    - holding reset for 30 seconds and unplugging while button was held.

    - many more.

    therfore i can't reset it but i need the ip address

    I am wondering if there is any way to find it in comand prompt?

    ROUTER: WRT54G v2.2

    I also have something attached called speedstream which i can access .....i'm not very computer savy.



    :guns: i'm about to kill my router. :guns:

    Check and see what your default gateway IP address is, that should be the router address.

    that just leads me to speed stream. I fixed it in a way. I have to set up a static ip to acess the router. but now i want to portforward to the ip but the only ip's it will let me are 192.168.1.**

    I think were goin to need more info on the topology of the network and what you actually want to do . Any devices connected behind the WRT are going to have a 192.168.X.X address unless you change that, port forwarding on the router is going to take requests the router receives from the internet port and direct it to the specific computer behind it

    If your default gateway leads you to the Speedstream, and you want to port forward with the router, you need to put the Speedstream in bridged mode. Now, mind you, I have a cable connection (not PPPoE), but I do know how that all works. The DSL modem is broadcasting as the gateway at this point and wreaking havoc with the router. Put the DSL modem into bridge mode (you'll probably need to take the router out of the loop, and log in to the Speedstreams configuration page directly), change it to bridged mode, then hook up the Linksys, set it to PPPoE for the connection type and enter the username/password information. It should then start authenticating on its own as opposed to the modem doing it.

    What you should do is click on "Start > Run", type "cmd" and enter at the prompt, then at the prompt in the command line window, type in "ipconfig" and copy/paste the contents here, masking out any personal information that may be contained in it. All we're looking for is the gateway address and the first three octets of your private ip (mask the fourth, so that it looks like 192.168.1.xxx)
