Problem Accessing Admin Console
Posted on 2005-04-30
I have a home network using a Netgear WGT624 v2 router. The connection works fine (using it as we speak), but for some reason, WEP encryption got disabled. Now, I cannot access the router's admin console when I try to get to it via browser to re-enable encryption.
IPCONFIG returns the following info:
IP Address: 192.168.0.4
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1
I would think that 192.168.0.1 would be the router's IP, but it doesn't work. I've also tried just about every internal IP in the book.
It should be noted that I had to modify the settings of the router to work with SBC Yahoo's PPTP DSL, which, if I remember right, moved the assignment of the external IP from the router to the modem. But it may be the other way around.
I definitely don't want to reset the router, as it took me several hours of pain to get it working with SBC's crappy PPTP service. Can anyone help with this?
