February 3, 2008 at 01:53:27
Specs: win xp, P4 2.6

I am new to networking and have just setup a Asus 520g wireless router, both computers say that the connection is good but I cant actually see any files from one computer to the other, I have to access an internet site to configure my router which is the ip address of the router 192.168.1.1. My web browser refuses to load this site and I have tried everything. I have check the ip address of the router and it is definitely as above, all popup blockers etc are disabled but I just cant get thro. Any ideas would be appreciated thanks.

Go to a comand prompt and type ipconfig/all.

Where is says Default Gateway it should show 192.168.1.1. IP address should be 192.168.1.xx where xx should be any number between 2 and 254. If not, there is something wrong. Report back what you get.

The IP address is wrong, thats the IP address of your computer, not the router. The default Gateway should be the routers address as well as the DNS Servers.

I suspect you have manually configured IP address and not used DHCP.

Go to Network Connections, Select Local Area Connection. Select IP configuration and set it to obtain IP address automatically as well as obtain DNS Server address automatically. These address will come from the router.

Make sure the router is on its default configuration which should be with DHCP enabled. If this is a new router then it should already be on default. You can reset it to default by pressing a reset switch on the back. The manual should show you how.

Re-boot and look again. You should then have addresses as detailed in my first post.

192.168.1.1 is the Default Gateway address. Not the IP address as it is in your post. The router wont issue an address via DHCP that is the same as itself, it has to be different.

Without the Default Gateway address nothing is going to work.

Make sure that at the command prompt, when you type ipconfig /all, you have a space between ipconfig and /all. Are you running DSL or cable. Maybe an obvious question, but has your ISP actually set up your account?

Whether the ISP has set up the account is irrelevant if you can't get at the router configuration. You need that to enter user name and password, in fact you can configure a router with an Internet connection of any kind.

You say that it's set to DHCP, but the following in your ipconfig, begs to differ. I'm surprised your not getting alerts from Windows about IP conflicts.

Dhcp enabled: NO
IP Address: 192.168.1.1

Start | Run | netsh interface ip set address "Local Area Connection" dhcp
