Linksys router won't talk to me.


I have a Linsys broadband router at 192.168.1.1 . I can ping it, but it makes no response when I try to log into the router through the web interface. I may have canged the password previously to no usrname and just a password (I've had it sitting around for a while). I don't know if that makes a difference.

How do I log in?

I reset it (I assume you mean resetting it by getting a pencil and pushing the button on the front), but it still won't give any response at all. It just times out.

R u going thorugh any other devices i.e switch or r you do doing this hardwired(direct from eth0 to router)?

all lynksys router use the following login

usr:
passwd: admin

+unless u cahnged it

If you cannot connect to it after this then you must have changed the ip of the device - and at that point I cannot offer much additional help.

I can ping 192.168.1.1 and my other computers are 10.0.0.2 and 10.0.0.3, so 192.168.1.1 has to be the router.

And it's not a matter of not remebering the password. It never asks me for the password. It just times out.

Is it possible that Linksys is doing some sort of browser checking? I can connect to the web interface from my windows box, there is no problem. However, if I try to connect from my Linux box (using Mozilla, Netscape or Firebird), I get a "connection refused" message.


Glad to see I'm not the only one scratching my head about this one....

Are you going through any other routing devices? Unless you have a really huge netmask, 192.168.1.1 and 10.0.0.2 are on two different networks.

I finally figured it out.

A guy at a Windows forum told me to turn my computer off and reset the router. I didn't think turning off my computer would make a difference, but apperently it does because now it works.
