Connected my router to another router wirelessly.
« on: December 14, 2014, 03:09:35 PM »

Hello all,

I can no longer log into my router. When I type 192.168.0.1, my browser just keeps thinking and thinking and thinking and thinking.

Right before this happened, I was logged into my router and I changed the Wireless SSID to a modem/router that has Internet connection.
I also entered its password and other basic network features like WPK-personal, etc.

Now I connect to the Internet through my router, while connected to the modem/router.
Which is all fine and dandy, but…

I would like to log back into my router and change the SSID and other settings back to the way they were.

At the command prompt I entered:
IPconfig

The default gateway now shows:
192.168.1.1

This is the default gateway for the modem/router that's connected to the Internet, I do not know the username or password for this.

I suppose I could just turn off my router, then proceed to connect to the modem/router that's connected to the Internet regularly.

There's just one problem with that, I have a Brother MFC wirelessly connected to my router.
At some point I'm going to need to turn my router back on so I can connect to it and print.

I don't want to share my printer with other people.

How do I go about finding the internal IP address for my router? So I can log back into it and change it back to the way things were.

Any help or feedback would be greatly appreciated,

Rob

Link>Welcome!

  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under the router case.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

Internet Service Provider and Modem Configurations
  • What ISP Service do you have? Cable or DSL?
  • What ISP Modem Mfr. and model # do you have?
  • Is ISP Modem/Service using Dynamic or Static WAN IP addressing?
  • What ISP Modem service link speeds UP and Down do you have?
  • Check cable between Modem and Router, swap out to be sure. Link> Cat6 is recommended.
  • Check ISP MTU requirements, Cable is usually 1500, DSL is around 1492 down to 1472. Call the ISP and ask. Link>Checking MTU Values
  • For DSL/PPPoE connections on the router, ensure that "Always ON" option is enabled.
  • If the ISP modem has a built in router, it's best to bridge the modem. Having 2 routers on the same line can cause connection problems: Link>Double NAT and How NAT Works. To tell if the modem is bridged or not, look at the routers web page, Status/Device Info/Wan Section, if there is a 192.168.0.# address in the WAN IP address field, then the modem is not bridged. If the modem can't be bridged then see if the modem has a DMZ option and input the IP address the router gets from the modem and put that into the modems DMZ. Also check the routers DHCP IP address maybe conflicting with the ISP modems IP address of 192.168.0.1. Check to see if this is the same on the ISP modem, and if modem can't be bridged, change the DIR router to 192.168.1.1 or .0.254.
