    Hello, when I connect successfully using my network bridge connection, I then can't connect to my GL router to make setting changes. This problem was predicted as outlined in the following link.

    The option I would like to do as stated in link is change the router IP.
    So as I understand I need to determine the gateway that I connect to and make my routers ip address the same value with the exception of the fourth set of numbers. When I connect successfully the following settings I get when doing a "IPCONFIG" are

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
    IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . :
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . :
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :

    When I tried to change the routers IP to, I can't connect to the router. I thought I should be able to considering that my gateway and router's IP are similar and subnet masks are identical.

    What am I missing?

    I have a WRTGL with tofu 13c on win2k.

    Thanks for any ideas.
