cannot access config web-page for adsl router


I wasn't sure if this is a hardware or a networking query - so apologies if wrongly sited.

I have a brand new ADDON GWAR3000 adsl wireless router that I am wanting to use, but with a problem: I cannot access the web-page configuration utility located at the router's address of 192.168.1.1
I have tried accessing it on my Linux systems, my BSD box and even the old Win98 box. The latter of course can get the software driver installed, but even that gives me a "login failed" message!!!

I can't take advantage of my broadband account until I get this damned thing configured and up and running. Any ideas?

To which subnet does the port belong to which you have connected the router?

Example: If your router is connected to eth0 and your IP number for eth0 is 10.1.3.10 and the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0, the system will most likely route only connections via eth0 which are addressed to 10.1.3.0 - 10.1.3.255. If the address of your router is not within this range, you can not access it.

The last time I had this problem I temporarily configured eth0 into the range of 192.168.1.x - but perhaps an additional entry into the routing table would have sufficed.

I didn't go with the freebie modem they offered and haven't pursued them as a source of tech support consequently.

I am wondering if this might have anything to do with my IP address needing to be on the same subnet as that of the router - although that does seem more than a bit weird really

I am at a loss. I'll try and give the modem support folk a call on Monday and see if they have any suggestions. Trouble is, I am wondering if it is my set up, because I had this same problem with a previous router, which was on 10.0.0.1 for the config page and I couldn't access it. Hence, I swapped it ... for this, which I can't get into either!! My IP addresses for the firewall and LAN is 172.31.*.* range, but I haven't connected some of the other boxes onto that yet, wanting to test it first. But, I have tried accessing the router's config page with a stand-alone (127.0.0.1), the remnants of a former LAN (10.0.*.*), a Win98 with ?? knows what - if any - IP (where does one look?), and with what will be the firewall (172.31.*.*). All this has been done (double-clicking the software icon in Win98) and entering the 192.168.1.1 in IE, Firefox, Mozilla, Konqueror, and Lynx. All cables are RJ45s, NiC indicator lights are green, router lights are green and steady, microfilters have been switched, connections checked and still ... zip

Anybody have any ideas <<getting desperate, here!!>>, I'm almost willing to try waving cloves of garlic over the darn thing if it will mean that it will work!!!

Lets get as basic as posiable. Run the command ' /sbin/ifdown eth0 ' as root or root access. Goto /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts. Edit to the following basic setup.
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 ( NOTE requires root access to edit )
Code:
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=none
BROADCAST=192.168.1.255
IPADDR=192.168.1.2
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
NETWORK=192.168.1.0
ONBOOT=yes
TYPE=Ethernet
GATEWAY=192.168.1.1
Save and exit.
Now run ' /sbin/ifup eth0 ' as root. Now goto your browser and enter in address bar ' http://192.168.1.1 '
If you still cannot conect make sure you are plugged into the lan side of router not the wan side.
Make sure it is a regular cable and not a crossover cable.
Is there a factory reset button on unit. Press it as documantion says to reset to factory settings.

Hope this helps

Brian1 - thanks mate: I owe you Worked like a charm. I'm using Slackware on the laptop (didn't want to go to the hassle of configuring my firewall all out of sync) so modified your suggestions accordingly and they worked!!! excellent!! I had done that before, but hadn't dropped the interface - so that's why it didn't work.

Cheers mate!!
