192.168.1.1 will not connect

August 1, 2012 at 07:32:06
Specs: Windows XP
my router is not password protected and is several years old. I went to the IP address 192.168.1.1 and could not connect. I clicked on several of them and they still wouldn't. I noticed a link where several others have had this problem

Hi clemoine,

Kindly let me know if it’s a wired connection or wireless connection.

1) If it’s a wireless connection, try wired connection by connecting the cable directly to the router.
2) you can also try installing the latest network drivers .
3) You could also check if it works in “Safe mode with networking “(restart the computer and key tapping F8 and select safe mode with networking) to check if it works.

Waiting to hear from you.

Thanks & Regards

It's not even a Dell related question. Please stop trolling our forums.

First obvious question - why choose the address 192.168.1.1?

#2 your answer doesn't seem to be very helpful for a professional. How can the OP update the firmware if he can't access the router? Unless he has a Dell he's not going to get a Dell logo is he? Believe it or not, quite a few people use non-Dell computers. And he doesn't say that networking isn't working, just that he can't access the router. He's probably just using the wrong address.

I agree with the possible wrong address. Some routers use 192.168.1.100 or 192.168.0.1 or .0.100.

I've edited his response, these guys are getting out of control.

I don't see how going into safe mode would have any effect either but I've seen stranger things happen on computers so I left it in.

192.168.1.254 is a favourite with Thompson routers. It may not even be on the 192.168.x.x network. Impossible to tell without knowing which router it is.

Why can't we get the exact model of the router? Don't we need some place to start?

Are you connected directly to the router with a network cable?
Is your hardwired connection turned on under network properties?
Is your network card functioning properly? Check the device manager and make sure there are no yellow exclamation marks or red marks next to your network card.

Have you changed ISP's lately? Or, has your ISP changed from a static to a dynamic structure?

192.168.1.1 is a local address for the router, it wouldn't matter if his ISP changed from static to dynamic or vice versa. It wouldn't matter if he changed ISP's either unless he got the router from the ISP and changed routers.

I have been doing a bit of research, and I realized that I accidentally deleted 192.168.1.1 from connecting. It even says so if I try to "Diagnose Connection Problems." Do you guys by chance know how to restore those sites?
Thanks!
