Can't get into Dynalink wireless router setup

October 21, 2010 at 21:37:32
Specs: Microsoft Windows 7, 3 GHz / 4 GB
I have a Dynalink router with an address 192.168.1.1. It connects 4 computers in 2 different buildings.
Because I have also two laptops that I want to be able to use in different rooms I have added a wireless modem to one of the Dynalink ports. I have to manually set addresses for the computers connected to the wireless router, as that gives out addresses in the range 10.1.1.x.
Everything works perfectly, and mostly pain-free. Except that I cannot get access to the wireless router (at 10.1.1.1) to set up WPA security. I put in the username and password (both admin) and it just can't connect. It times out in the end.
In the past I have managed to get in, but then after the customery reboot, that was the end. It seemed like I could do the job once, and only once, with a given computer.
Resetting the router does not help.
I can't ping the 10.1.1.1 address from any computer
I haven't ever been able to log on to the router wirelessly, and suspect this is deliberate.
Anyone help?
Terry

How exactly is this all connected?
E.g.:
PC -> (LAN) Router (WAN) -> Wireless Modem
or
PC -> (LAN) Router (LAN) -> Wireless Modem

Is this modem used to connect all PCs and Laptops to your ISP?

I have one router connected to the internet. 4 computers connect directly to this router. (Via a switch because I needed more ports).
I then connected the wireless router to one of the ports. Two laptops connect wirelessly to this modem.

In the course of trying to connect I have connected them via a network cable, but this was just temporarily to try to set up the wireless router.

Which of the Routers connects you to your ISP?

The Dynalink.
But that is irrelevant. When I am trying to get into the wireless modem I usually disconnect it so that I have a computer connected to it by a LAN cable. Nothing else.

Ok, so your PC should have an ip address of 10.1.1.x.
Did it?

Open CMD and type ipconfig /all at the PC, you're trying to connect with.
Post the output here for review.

Sorry this has taken so long.
The situation has been on hold for a while.
The IP address was the problem. It was the wrong router giving me DHCP settings. When I entered a static 10.1.1.x address it all went well.

Thanks for the help.
