| I've opened my CISCO E2000's configuration file through Firefox dozens of times to make small tweaks and it's always opened just fine. At present, my network is working perfectly and I can connect to the Internet. There's no problem there. What concerns me is that a few days ago I wanted to check the MAC addresses I've saved in the router configuration, and for the first time, I can't connect to it. There is a CISCO Config icon/link on my desktop that automatically opens Firefox and brings up the logon page. When I click it now, Firefox launches but all I get is a black FF screen and a popup that states "Firefox can't can't connection to the server at 192.168.1.1." There is a suggestion that perhaps the connection is busy, which it isn't, or that the physical connections need to be checked. All of that is fine. I've unplugged the power to the router for a minute or two and replugged it, but still can't open the Config. I also unplugged it, waited, then replugged it and also hit the reset button. That also did nothing. I've also checked the ipconfig/all and everything there looks fine. So, for all intents and purposes, the router is behaving as it ought to. The problem is why can't I open the Configuration? |
First off, I don't understand why this happened. I like to know why things like this occur so that I can prevent it from happening again. Second, my question is, will the issue be resolved by reinstalling the router software? I've done this once before, but it's a pain to reconfigure all of my previous settings. I'll do it if I must, but I'd rather avoid this if the problem lies somewhere else. I assume that since my router's config is backed up, I could probably just reload the backup. But before I get in over my head, I thought I'd seek some advice here and see what answers I might get first. Thanks!!
