Solved Can't access with Lanpro router LP-5420G

Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate, I5 8 Gb Ram
I've got a weird problem:
I've got a Lanpro LP-5420G. Long ago, I was able to set up a password with WPA2. Then I couldn't connect to the internet. I managed to make it work placing the rj45 network cable (that it's originally connected from the modem to the WAN port on the router) to the (number) 1 port. But now, it doesn't let me have access to that it's the original ip for the router. I tried with,, and others and nothing works.
Also, i've got connected another rj34 cable to a normal pc (that was originally connected on port 1) on port 2 now. I don't have internet when I just plug modem cable to the WAN port, and neither I can access to just connecting the normal pc, nor a laptop, nor my IP starts with 192.168...

✔ Best Answer
Unless there is some very important data on it, I'd reset it to OEM state and follow the owners manual on how to re-set it as you wish.

Hang up and live.

"originally connected from the modem to the WAN port on the router to the (lan) 1 port"
"now, it doesn't let me have access to"

Of course not. If you do a ipconfig at a command prompt you will see you no longer have as gateway.

By cabling the way you did you are bypassig the router just like you were connected directly to the modem which is why the other pc isn't getting internet.

Solution? Return the cable to the wan port.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

I resetted it once long ago but didn't work. Made it again and weirdly worked. Thanks, now cables work where they're supposed to.

1. Start the computer, right-click on the desktop or "Start" in the "My Network Places" choose "Properties".

2. Right-click Local Area Connection "choose" Properties ", select "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" and click "Properties".

3. The computer is set to "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically" and click "OK".

4. Then right-click "local connection" select "status" view "support".

5. Ping the connection between the computer and the router in the DOS command line.

a) Find the "Start" -> "Run", type cmd, and click "OK" to open a DOS command line.

b) Enter "ping" in the command line and press Enter, if it displays "Reply from ..." the computer and the router are connected.

c) If it displays other informations, such as "Request timed out", it is indicated that the connections between the computer and the router have other problems. Check the Local Connection IP address and the router LAN IP, if they are not in the same network segment, you can configure an IP address manually. If this does not work, you can try to reset the router.
