I have a NETGEAR WGR614v7 router. With my old Windows XP desktop, I ran the setup CD that came with the router and established a wireless network with an SSID and WPA-PSK security. The old desktop is broken now. I purchased a new Windows Vista Home Edition laptop (Toshiba) and it connects wirelessly to the SSID that I previously established with the old PC. However, when I try to access the router's config window through www.routerlogin.net
, it doesn't display. It just hangs and eventually displays that generic IE Explorer message "Page cannot be displayed" (or whatever that message is).
I know this may seem obvious but, do I need to run the router's setup CD on the new laptop before I can access the router's config screen? I was nervous about doing this because I do not want to delete/default the SSID (wireless network) that I have already established.
Please advise. Thank you.
