Please tell me how to access my ADSL connection via the router as I can no longer access the router's configuration programme and I have lost the CD.  I had it all working for my network but after removing a SB card that did not appear to be working, I lost the connection to my ISP.

I have an Athlon64 3200+ processor, MSI 628F Neo MB, 1GB 400 DDR and 120GB S-ATA HD.  I am running Windows XP Professional.

Are you talking about accessing your Router via the web interface..?   You should be able to do this by entering the Gateway address (the router's internal IP address) into your URL address bar of your browser (Internet Explorer)

Most routers use a Gateway of 192.168.1.1, although yours may be different.   You can find out what your Gateway is by:

Start > Run > cmd... (Opens a Command Shell)  

then type in:   ipconfig /all

Your Gateway address will appear on the screen.

Thank you for your help, it is so good to know someone out there in the ethernet will answer, and with good sense.

I found out that I had to unplug my router for 15555 seconds and reboot my computer to get back into the router configuration website.  What a waste of time fiddling about trying this and that, all to no avail until I spotted a tip about unplugging the router.  I did try to reset it with the old paper clip technique, but no dice, it required unplugging!

Still have some very odd messages from the BIOS that it could not find my HD nor the BIOS!  Also the MB keeps trying to find a login for the Network Adapter and apparently cannot find that either!

*grin*  Yes..  this is called a hard reset (on your router)..  Probably should have mentioned it...  On most routers, it is a 2-5 minute period.  15555 sounds a bit extreme, but every router is different..

If you bios cannot find the hard drive, how is it booting..??  very curious..

BTW:  thanks for the pts..
