|Hi all. Running Vista 64-bit OS. Trying to set up 160n router for Static IP from my ISP. Settings from ISP are:|
DNS: 188.8.131.52 or 184.108.40.206
I've been able to get the router page in browser. I tried setting ROUTER IP to 192.168.2.1 and it brings up a window that states: SETTINGS HAVE BEEN SAVED. YOU WILL RETURN TO THE PREVIOUS SCREEN IN A FEW SECONDS. Then the window just hangs and hangs. I try pulling up 192.168.2.1 in a new tab and it won't connect. I've tried this with DHCP both enabled and disabled.
I've also tried setting ROUTER IP to 192.168.1.100 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.128 but it doesn't like that one, stating the ROUTER IP AND SUBNET EQUALS EACH OTHER. PLEASE CHANGE.
I have to use the Static IP the ISP gave me. The router only has a few subnet masks available and will not let me enter one myself. Does anyone have any suggestions?
