Specs: Windows Vista
When i go into CMD and find the IP address, i then put it into the web browser (Mozilla) and it should come up with a website like page. HOWEVER when i do this, mozilla goes to a plain white page with nothing. Down the bottom of the page, it says that its done. I tried this in internet explorer, but only came up saying that it couldnt find the page

What IP address are you putting in? If it begins 192.168.x.x then you wont get anything unless you are running a server of some kind.

what is on the web like page?

Is it an error page?

What is it you expect to get?

it is 192.188.2.1

im not so good with terminology. how can i tell if its a server?
with IE, it is an error page. with mozilla, its just white.

i intend on getting the network key. i know its possible. i did it about 2 weeks ago. ive done the exact same thing as i did then (or so i think)

Is that 192.168.2.1 with a typo.

You can tell if it is a server if you put it there. Assuming that it is 192.168.2.1 that appears to be the address of your own computer or probably the address of your router. If the address appears under Default Gateway it is your routers address. Is this the case?

The different pages you get is just the different way the applications have of handling errors.

What is this network key you are looking for? If it is a wireless network key then you will get it from the router providing your router display it which not all od.

im slightly confused, once again, with terminology.
yes, it was a typo - it should have been .168.

The address that comes up under default gateway is 192.168.2.1.

At the moment, im using the computer hooked up to the modem. the computer with the router (recieving info/wifi) is my brothers (who is away and cant help).

My problem at the moment, is 'why' mozilla doesnt open a page when i enter the valid IP address...I know its the correct IP address because I did this very thing not that long ago

If you are direct connected to the modem then you cannot access the router config interface. In order to access the router you need to be connected by cable to a router LAN port.
Make sure your PC's NIC TCP/IP properties are set to "Obtain IP Automatically"

Then in CMD run the ipconfig /all command and verify the default gateway IP.
Entering that IP in your browser should bring up a prompt for Admin User ID and Password which I presume you know already.

Network Connections. Rightclick on the LAN connection Select properties. In the list of protocols, highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and again select properties.

"find the IP address, i then put it into the web browser (Mozilla) and it should come up with a website like page."

No, this is wrong. Most sites use host headers to share IP addresses. Modern browsers send the actual name you want to the IP and then it is routed to the correct server page. Otherwise the world would have run out of IPv4 web sites LONG ago.
