Have you tried entering the http://  part of the url (e.g. http://192.168.1.1)?

Also you should check to make sure that 192.168.1.1 is your default gateway using ipconfig in a command window.

Try powering off, wait a minute then power on your router. If it's still not connecting, try clearing your temp files.

Try uninstalling IE 8. It is a POS! I am an MS partner and like much of their products but that thing is crap. Stick with 6 or 7.

Can FireFox open the router page?  Also try turning off your firewall and see if that works - the firewall may be blocking you.
