Specs: Macintosh
I have a linksys router model: WRT160N and I am on a Mac.. and I am trying to change some settings so I go to 192.168.1.1 and click enter but it says "Safari can’t open the page “http://192.168.1.1/” because Safari can’t connect to the server “192.168.1.1”. And I was wondering if anyone knows how to solve this problem please get back to me. Thank You.

First of all, can you ping the ip address 192.168.1.1?
Has you MAC an ip address of the range 192.168.1.[2 - 254]?
Is there configured any proxy in Safari ?

Let us know, if the problem is solved !!!

You may be using the wrong router IP address. Linksys have used a few different ones. Look here and try all the ones that are shown for Linksys. One of them should work.

This is where you tell the OP to read the setup guide/manual that came with the router.....it actually tells you what IP to connect to for the router's management interface. Like your tagline says, "...read the instructions"

If that doesn't connect, you then have to reset the router to factory defaults (again, in the guide) and try again. If it still doesn't, then there's something wrong with the router.

Thank you for that Curt. I agree with you. Anthony57 please take note.

I just thought the OP may not have or has lost his user guide as people tend to do.

Best is to configure your MAC to get the IP address automatically via DHCP.
In that case, your MAC gets configured with a correct ip address and gets configured the routers ip address as it's default gateway and dns server.
Then you should be able, to surf the internet.

You put the IP address in the Address Bar of Safari and it should bring up the configuration page.

http://www.ehow.com/how_2196172_pin...

The problem is you are probably not connected to the router. As stated above, you may not have your network card on the right subnet which could be fixed by setting your network card to...

Address: 192.168.1.4
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1

or just set it to automatic (USING DHCP) so that the setting get put in automatically by the DHCP on your router.

To test to see if this is the problem you would use a ping tool to see if you you are talking to the router.

Ok, so while looking at your response #10, you get a ping reply 4 to more than 8 seconds. This is untypical for a local device as a router.
Typically the ping time is less than 10 milliseconds.

Therefore my question:
What did you get, when trying to access the routers web interface by http://192.168.1.1 ?

Are you really sure, that the router, you're connected to, is your router and not a router of someone else ?

Check your available wireless connections. I agree with the poster above in this message. You are more than likely not connected to your wireless network. I would suggest a cable connection. Once plugged into the router, see if your address accesses the router. If you are not the original person to set this router, the address could be anything (mine is not factory default).

I would check your browser settings too. I have often had to reset S. on a Mac and IE on a PC because users tend to get happy clicking options. Return it to default settings.

If you need help accomplishing anything mentioned, use the HELP on your Mac and use Google. Learning begins when you solve the problem yourself. :)

I'm learning.

This is exactly what it says when I type 192.168.1.1 in my address bar....

Safari can’t connect to the server.

Safari can’t open the page “http://192.168.1.1/” because Safari can’t connect to the server “192.168.1.1”.

Maybe your WLAN is not shown, because you've configured the router to not broadcast the SSID (your wireless network name).
