Temporarily disable the WIFI card in MY NETWORK PLACES.

Set your workstation LAN card to OBTAIN TCP/IP instead of static.  If you have a Linsys router and it is straight out of the box, the normal router IP address is 192.168.1.1.

Run CMD and then type in at the command prompt

ipconfig /release

---then type---

ipconfig /renew

---then type---

ping 192.168.1.1

if you can ping the router, then you can access it with Internet Explorer

Reset your Linksys router.  What model do you have?

You also have to check for your TCP/IP properties.  Do you have a static IP address set on the workstation?  Else, let the workstation optain the IP address from the router.

Verify the IP address of the PC you use for configuration.
It has to be in the 192.168.1.0/24 subnet.
(e.g. 192.168.1.200 netmask 255.255.255.0)

do you have physical access to the router?  Is the router in front of you?

To reiterate the commands above precisely:
click the START button, then choose RUN, type in "CMD" (no quotes), and press OK

You will see the command window, type at the c:\ prompt

ipconfig /release  (press ENTER)

---then type---

ipconfig /renew (press ENTER)

---then type---

ping 192.168.1.1

It will display if you are connecting, or not.  If you are connecting to the router that is a good sign.

I have full accees but over Internet, Means I can access Rouer through Team Viewer,  I'm not available physically infront of router, anyone is not technical person there.

Irwin SantosComputer Integration SpecialistCommented:
You've lost me.  Team Viewer is a remote access software which allows you to connect to another station.  You want to access the Linksys router?  You do NOT use Team Viewer for that.

Let's take a step back, is the WIRE physically connected to 1 of your XP workstation LAN cards?  AND, is the other end of that SAME wire connected to the router?

yes,

you are right, but I have access of workstation by Teamviewer.

Seems you are trying to access the router remotely/over the internet ?

If this is true you cannot use the local address (192.168.1.1), but you have to use
the public (WAN) IP address and enable access from the public/WAN interface
in the router configuration before.

Usually this is not a clever idea as it could open up your router for anyone for
guessing/hacking/sniffing your password.

Better ideas would be:
- install a VPN connection from your location to the remote
  location and access 192.168.1.1 via VPN tunnel
or
- restrict access to remote administration interface to your IP address/range AND
- enable/configure encrypted access (https, ssh etc.)
