cannot access router configuration screen

Hello all,

I'm trying to get access to my linksys router conf. page. I have a wired connection from the router to my debian computer.
command 'route' gives the following output:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
default         UG    0      0        0 eth0    *        U     0      0        0 eth0
When I try to get there with my browser it shows a yellow blank page. further nothing, no text at all.

ping -c4
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_req=1 ttl=64 time=28.6 ms
64 bytes from icmp_req=2 ttl=64 time=7.84 ms
64 bytes from icmp_req=3 ttl=64 time=11.2 ms
64 bytes from icmp_req=4 ttl=64 time=12.0 ms
even after a router reset the problem remains the same.

2 questions:
1. how come I have this weird router ip when it should be or similar and is this a problem?
2. how can I enter my router configuration screen?

Rep: Reputation: Disabled is not your router, it is a public address, your Debian seems to be connected directly to the internet. In case you are sure you have a router it may be in bridge mode.

Thank you Emerson

From my incoming internetconnection the wire goes to the router.
Another wire is in a routerport which goes to my computer. (only one for now, it 's complicated enough)
It is exactly as the router instruction recommends.

When I look up on the internet what bridge mode is, I read you can toggle it in your routerconfigurationscreen..
but how to get into my routerconfigurationscreen..?

See your router manual (probably hardware reset is the only way). Anyhow, there is another possibility - internet cable is connected to a wrong port on your router, as a result it is working as switch.
