"I read to access"

What does that mean?

How do you know when a politician is lying? His mouth is moving.

Open a command prompt window (ie: Start >> Run >> type cmd and hit Enter) and perform the following command:

ipconfig /all

Once you've finished, copy/paste the output into a response on here so we can have a look.

For info on how to copy/paste from a command prompt window click on my name above and read my "how-to" guide titled, "Post the output of ipconfig (version 2)"

If your TCP/IP settings are correct as shown by the 'ipconfig /all' command, then the Default Gateway address should be the one you enter into the URL field of your web browser to connect to the router's management interface.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

If you have enabled DHCP feature on router, then just make sure you configure each computer on network to obtain IP address automatically, it should then be able to resolve IP conflict problem without the need to access router management page.

In order to access router management page, you need to set computer with the IP sits in the network same as router, so you can access and configure it. If your router IP is, you can set computer IP as (you can set 192.168.1.X, X= number between 2 and 254),

Hope this helps.
