Specs: Windows XP, 1GB
Hello,
I remember long ago I was upto some trial and error with my router and I ended up in changing some ip that I didn't know about that time, now when I was trying to forward some of the ports. I addressed the computer to 192.168.1.1 (as this was my ip that time I remember and on the box its written too) but it didn't respond, then I remember that I have changed this ip to something else and now I can't remember this, sir please, can anyOne help me? I can use internet perfectly but I need to configure my router settings now how can I enter that page :(

IPCONFIG and what ever your Default Gateway is that is your Routers IP.

post your IPCONFIG. If your computers IP is the same as the default gateway then there is your problem. You computer has to be in .2 - .254.

Also what is the exact error you get when going to the config page?

Last, what happens when you ping the default gateway address?

The error is "Connection Closed by the remote server"

I think I did something wrong in the config page and after that this started to happen, anyway the ping is fine, it gets the reply from 192.168.1.1=32 bytes

it was something like this
sent = 4 packets and received = 4 packets loss = 0

You haven't stated the make and model of your router, so it's not easy to help. But you may be able to telnet into it. Try telnetting 192.168.1.1.

The manual for your router does not mention telnet. If all else fails the last resort would be to use the reset button to restore your router to factory settings. But be very sure before you do that that you know how to configure it for your connection.

Hopefully someone else with come up with a better suggestion.
