Can't get into router configuration panel...

That's the router I have. I've tried typing in, I've tried (even though that's not linksys's port), I've tried resetting the router a variety of different ways, every time I hold down the reset button it's for a minimum of 15 seconds, I've tried doing that with it off, then on, then off & on again, I've tried holding it down for 30 seconds, etc; etc. but no matter what I do I can not get the login screen to come up. I've tried this on 2 different computers, exact same thing happens.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I apologize for the amount of points on this but it's all I have & it's important for me to get into that panel so I can configure it for some of my p2p programs to work.

Thanks in advance.

yes should be
make sure you have no antivirus or firewalls active
make sure that the Explorer is not using a proxy server: Internet options>Connection>LAN settings

Alright, I have no idea why this is working now. I tried this so many times with that IP, resetting it, trying it again, etc; etc. but for whatever reason, it's working now. The only thing I can imagine that's different is I just installed Norton AV & it disables the Win Firewall... I don't know. As long as it's working & I can configure the router, I'm a happy camper. Thanks folks.
