I've been using various Spy and Adware removers, and now I can't access my Linksys page at 192.168.11.2 and access my Linksys page with Setup, Wireless, Security, Access Restrictions, etc.  I receive a 401 Error Message.  Why?

Also, at Linksys's page, my for Applications & Gameing a technition put in 192.168.11.100 to open a TCP or UDP port, but my IP Address, he made, is 192.168.11.2 (he said for security reasons)..  So why the 100 rather than the 2 to open ports or Forwarding?

Normal setup for a small soho router is router IP  x.x.x.1-100 and clients IP x.x.x.100-254

Now when you forward a message from the WAN side you forward it to a clients IP
401 message could simply mean that the IP address for the router is wrong.

Normal address for linksys is 192.168.1.1 have you tried 192.168.1.2 ?

if anything else fails there should be a small "reset to factory defaults" button somewhere.

I found that it's 192.168.11.2.  Also I did reset the router, but now my connection on my wireless to downstairs computer is lost.  What do I do to get the downstairs talking or communicating with upstairs again?
