cisco linksys router problem

I was trying to login to a cisco linksys router today after pressing the reset button on the router and connecting by direct ethernet connection. I went to 192.168.1.1 on internet explorer typed admin admin for username password, and the login screen just flashed for a second and then it said cannot find webpage. I tried it over and over and got the same thing. Why did the settings page appear for just a second then say internet explorer cannot find webpage?

I could not get to the settings page to set up a wireless password. I tried https also instead of http but that didn't work. I also tried it with google chrome and with google chrome it said press the access button on your router. So I pressed the middle button and it said it's looking for device and couldn't find it. Not sure what I did wrong.

Any input will help. Thanks.

This was at a client's house I no longer have access to that router.

If you tried to connect over ethernet cable using different web browsers, I'm afraid that you did nothing wrong.
I would try to reset router again, try to connect to router with different pc. If it does not help, I'm afraid that the router is dead.
