Can't enter Linksys Router configuration

Specs: Windows Vista Home premuim
Weird problem today. I can not access Wireless Router (Linksys Dual-n Band) configuration settings.
Just recently reset all values for the 2.4 and 5 Ghz wireless configuration and disabled SSIDs. Now I need to enable the 2.4 SSID broadcast for my Iphone to see (wish I didn't have to and would love help on that, too)
and now I can't enter the router config. It's usually 192.168.1.1, but I can't find it and ping times out on that ip address. I tried ipconfig and arp -a and see that the defualt gateway has changed to 76.114.116.1. I try to access that to no avail. I have reset the router about 10 times with different combination of reset pressed, plug out and in, etc. still no factory default ip address. I turn off the Norton firewall rebooted everything about 10 times. unplugged the cable modem 12 times.
I have comcast and wonder if the 76.114.116.1 is somehow connect to them.

Does anyone know what I can do access my router?

The question is, what IP address has the PC or Notebook, you're trying to enter the Web Configuration of the router?

ipconfig /all

Post back the result.

I have a Sony Vaio Laptop in a docking station. The docking station has its own LAN connection. That LAN connection is connected to the Linksys wireless router, then the router is connected to the cable modem

What's about the question in response #4?
You can't change any settings, if you can't access the routers web configuration interface.
So therefore, you first have to check the connection of your computer, it should be connected to the router via cable, and then the ipconfig should show something like 192.168.1.x as your LAN ip address.

Is there any other connection from the Sony Vaio to the modem, like USB?
For now, it should not.

That IP belongs to Comcast. It's as if your router isn't there. Follow paulsep's suggestion.

It's exactly like what "Guapo" is saying. The router doesn't seem to be there. Can the connection just pass thru the router like that? I guess so if I have internet connection. There must me some what to reset the router or maybe its dead. What do you think?

How is the router connected to the modem.
Looks like modem is connected to one of the LAN ports of the router, but should be connected to the WAN port of the router.

The modem is connected to the internet port of the router. I made sure. Linksys makes it semi-dummy proof. I reset the router over again and the power light is blinking.

I set the laptop to a manual ip address of 192.168.1.5 with the default gateway as 192.168.1.1 and I still can not ping the router. (not finding host) Now, I really think the router is dead since its not assigning ip addresses and I cannot ping.

Warranty is still good till May this year. Maybe, I can just get in under the wire..................unless you have any other ideas??

Also tried reset to factory defaults.
Normally you have to hold the reset button for mostly 10 seconds.

If this will work, you have to setup the router settings from scratch.

Just talked to Linksys...........Long story short the Router in not functioning and they will be shipping me a new one. The Power button blinking was the indication that it was bad and malfunctioning. (Now I/we know) We did try and test everything like we had been doing, especially the resetting of the router. There direction was to hold the reset for one minute while plugged in, then unplug for one minute, then repower. Seemed extensive, but I guess they have to make sure. Anyway, new one on the way.

I want to thank you for your quick response and advise. Sometimes when your racking your brain you need to others to help you work thru it and appreciate your help. Thank you PaulSep.
