Solved cannot access router page, deafault gateway fe80..?

Specs: Windows 7 64bits
Ok, so I'm not a tech guy trying to solve technical issue.

Problem occured when I turned my second router into an Access Point as recommended by my internet service provider. Since I cannot access router page.

Ipconfig shows default gateway as
fe80 : : 5e35 : 3bff : fe4c : 32ed%12
What is that?
How do I reset this to a normal looking IP address so I can access the router page again?

That's an IPV6 address and an IPV4 one. Try

If you can't get back into the router's management interface you will want to reset it to factory and then reconfigure it. Pay attention to the IP addressing though. Assuming you're using and already have one active router here's what it should look like:

Main Router with Internet connection attached to it:
as provided by your ISP


DHCP enabled = Yes

Secondary router:

Default Gateway: (ie: IP address of main router doing DHCP0

DHCP enabled = No

Above you show in your original post and I have to wonder if that isn't conflicting with the LAN IP of your main router.

NOTE: You should also be able to disable IPv6 and probably should since you're not likely to be using it internally on your LAN
