Router-how to log on

I thought all I had to do was enter 192.168.1.1 into my browser, but that isn't working.

I assume this is a home router?  It depends on the router and whether you are connecting wired or wireless.

Sometimes it is 192.168.0.1 and sometimes you need https instead of http, so some possibilities are:
http://192.168.0.1/
https://192.168.0.1/
http://192.168.1.1/
https://192.168.1.1/

Are you connecting wired or wireless?
What IP address are you using?  (If you don't know, start a Command Prompt and type "ipconfig /all" and look for your IP address.

you can use tracert command in command prompt, for example

tracert google.com

the 1-st hop is you gateway and I assume also your router.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I've worked on routers that uses 10.0.0.2 as it's default IP.  I'd recommend you get hold of the equipment manual, if you can't log in with the default gateway of your LAN segment.  The manual will also show you how to do a factory reset, (which should be your last resort)...

connect the router in to a swich and same ur pc, then put ur pc in dhcp mode , that will automatically pick an ip from router, then check ur gateway ,and dtz ur router ip ,
put that in ur browser and hit enter ;)

I should have clarified:  the router I am wanting to log onto is actually a second router.  It is the wireless router. I can get to our main router, but not sure how to get to the wireless. It is physically connected to a hub and the hub is connected to the main router.

what's the model of wireless router?

infopeerCommented:
I think 192.168.0.1 should be the one you should acess.

Or turn to the back of router..SOme companies have the default login url/ID/password.

By the way what model/company router you are using

Linksys BEFW11S4.  The password has been modified. I know the password, I just can't seem to navigate to this router. I used to use 192.168.1.1 but that isnt' getting me there.  I can get to our main router by entering 192.168.30.159.

Do you try to access wireless router 2 , from some computer behind router 1 ?

Did you entered a static route in router1 for 192.168.1.0  in which wireless router 2 is or whatever network he is in, or you have some routing protocol for that network like rip2 or eigrp ???

aladin404Commented:
sorry, add on to previous,  is router 1 interface towards hub configured to be in the same network as ther wireless router2 ??

sorry for dual post :)

I have no idea.  I can tell  you the Linksys has one ethernet cable running from slot 1 to the hub. No other cables.  That one cable is going into a slot on the hub.  From the hub there is an ethernet cable going into the main router, into slot 5 which is just a slot.  We have a personal computer that uses the Linksys to get onto the internet.  Forgot to say internet is running to main router, so I know all this is working, but can't figure out how to get on Linksys to change the password. Basically want to boot my teenagers off the wireless.  Not urgent.  I know I used to access it by 192.168.1.1, but at that time it was the only router. Had a guy set us up wtih a more robust router and now can only get to it, not to the Linksys.

Is your computer connected to a hub ?

Did you try cable connecting wireless router just with computer and then typing in browser 192.168.1.1 ?

You said also that you can access your router1 by typing 192.168.30.159,  I'm not sure about your network topology, but probably router one and two need to be in the same network , so if that is a case, and to do that log on to router1 check ip address and subnet mask, and after that probably you will need to put router 2 in the same network as the route1  or  to do some routing between router one and two.

Ah, the problem of missing documentation...  Next time you get a guy in to do something, let him draw a picture with ports and IP's that you can keep.

Check the IP settings of the computer using the Linksys:  What is its IP, Subnet mask and Default gateway?  If the gateway is anything else than 192.168.30.159, try that.  If the gateway is the main router, at least we know that the Linksys is in the same subnet, and we might get by with a bit of social engineering.

Usually, people setting up networks do it in an orderly way, but a router IP of .159 does not fit this.  So I can only assume that the "usual" IP address has been used by the Linksys.  So try 192.168.30.1 or .254 (if it is a 255.255.255.0 subnet mask).  Or try IP's either side of the main router, .158 or .160.

If the social engineering route does not work, try the brute force method:  Try to ping all IP's in the subnet (preferably with the wireless clients off).  Each IP that reply, is either a PC on the network, or a network device.  Then try to log into all IP's that reply.

I hope this helps...

You can Hard reset your router by pressing for 30 sec's the small dot like nob on the router and the router will get a default password of admin/password

What I have tried so far:

1-I got on the one computer that uses this wireless router.  Can't navigate to it from there, either.  I can navigate to the main router.  This computer is a Vista machine with a wireless thing on a USB cable, so I know it is running through the Linksys.  But, I can't get the Linksys to pull up using 192.168.1.1.
2- I tried connecting an ethernet cable directly from a nearby computer to the Linksys.  Then tried 192.168.1.1, still no luck.

The IP of the computer that uses teh wireless connection is 192.168.30.22 and the subnet is 255.255.255 and the gateway is the main router 192.168.30.159, but, I know it connects to the network via the Linksys, cause if I disconnect the wireless, it can't get internet or print to the LAN printer.

Right, then the linksys router must be in the 192.168.30.0/24 subnet, i.e. it won't be reachable through 192.168.1.1 (the default).  I guess "the guy" changed the subnet, for some reason.

Have you tried 192.168.30.1?  As I said, most people use either .1 or .254 for the router, and it's at least worth a try.

If 192.165.30.1 doesn't work, we'll go for brute force.  Let me know, and I'll take you through the steps.
