I am wondering if there is a front end to using the Linksys router as a server...am a newbie to this..i've searched LQ and google....is there an NOS that i can use that utilizes this as a server...or am i completely off base?
If you're talking about using your router as a DHCP server, it should already be set up as one. As to configuring it, try going to http://192.168.1.1 in your browser. This will open up your router's configuration screen.
thank you...was just what i was looking for...but when i entered the ip address...i was asked for a user name and password....both my root and user names and passwords came up with a 401 error...saying that either the passwords were incorrect or the browser wasn't handling it correctly...tried it over and over..do you know what i'm doing wrong? using Konqueror as the browser...
It sounds like everything is working and doesn't appear you missed anything.
You do not need a username, password to access cable internet.
The router only uses a password only to secure its configuration settings and of course this is independent of the linux username, password. You should of also received an email username, password and the email server info from your ISP.
Linksys routers do not use usernames to access their configuration. The default password should be written in your router's manual. It should also be changed as soon as possible to provide added security.
