Hi.  I have been using a Cisco / Linksys wrv210 router.  works fine.  I just installed W2K8 SBS R2 on my network.  Now when I try to go to the http://192.168.1.1 IP of the router it fails.  Won't prompt me for a login IE 8 just comes back and says "Internet Explorer Cannot display the web page".  The new server is the only change on the network.  However I can surf the net just fine.  Before the SBS server I could use the router web admin just fine.  In fact I used it about 10 minutes before the SBS server ran the "Connect to the Internet Wizard"  After that nothing.

Cheers
Mark

Hi There
This occurs when there are rules blocking the ip address. I too faced the same problem. I connected the router directly to the server it worked, but on the network it fails. try changing the ip address of the router and then try on the network once again, it must work fine.

What's the IP of the server? You might have accidentally given the server the same IP as the router.

Also, can you access the router from another PC on the network? How about unplugging the network cable from the server. Can you access the router then?

Also check the IP address of your workstation. Do an ipconfig /all to see who is handing out the IP addresses.

make sure all your computers are in the same subnet (192.168.1.x / 255.255.255.0)

ok.  So I tried pretty much all the above suggestons and everything else I could think of.  No dice.  So I reset the router to factory default, reconfigured it and now it works fine.  Must have been some kind of odd glitch with the router itself.  thanks for thelp guy, points split as they were all good suggestions.

Cheers
