Specs:
2 GHz Pentium 4
256 Ram
Fronteir DSL Approx. 300 KB/s
Router: Linksys BEFSR41

But when I tried to update my Anti-Virus software, it says to check your internet connection. But My internet works fine. Its speed is normal too.

I tried to open up my Router Setup page (192.168.1.1) It wouldn't open.

My other computer also has the same problem. So it has to be the network.

Can you please tell me whats going on.

Reboot your router (pull the power, wait, plug it in). This seems to be a common sign of a failing linksys router, I'm afraid to say. Sometimes though it's just a glitch and a router reboot will fix it.

Open a DOS window and type:

IPCONFIG /ALL >C:RESULT.TXT

Open C:\RESULT.TXT with Notepad and copy/paste the entire results here.

You appear to have your broadband modem connected to one of the LAN ports, not the WAN port of the router. That's the only way I can imagine you could get the IP address you have...

I have the same problem, but not with a Linksys router, but a Zyxel.
The weird thing is that I have accessed the router without a problem before, and don't recall having changed any settings between then and now.
I can still access it by telnet, but not with a browser.
I have two pc's in my network, one WinXP, and one SuSE-Linux; both can access the internet, ping each other and the router, but not access the router by browser.

Results of my ipconfig from XP are:

I'm not having a router problem at this time - but found this an interesting read.
Thanks for sharing how to access the IP Configuration information / I learned something new again. :)

yeah, i have the same exact problem as you do.
all this happened unexpectedly without any setting changes.
maybe the router's broken :eek:
Except that you seem to have an external IP in your local network.
As johnwill said, are the cables on the right ports?
I don't know too much about network IPs, but local addresses usually seem to be of the 192.168... type or somethimes 10.10...

Your 209.63.164.133 is the IP your ISP gives you. Maybe your router is set as a modem instead of a router?
That would explain why you can't access it.

In my Zyxel (probably in other routers too), the main difference between set as a modem or as a router, are the settings for bridge and route.

Modem setting:
Route IP: no
Bridge: yes

Router setting:
Route IP: yes
Bridge: no

If you can access your router by Telnet, you could check these settings.
There are more settings to be changed though, but I'm not sure if they're the same for different brands of routers.

Plug the broadband modem into the WAN port, and your computer into one of the LAN ports. Since you're getting an external IP address, I don't see how you can have the modem plugged into the proper port...

Well, those settings probably aren't the same on your router, as they're mostly ISP dependent.
It's something in the factory settings that I must have accidentally changed before, that screwed things up. Did you reset by pressing the tiny reset button for 30 seconds? I did do 'reset system' from within the settings (by telnet) before, and that didn't work either.
FWIW, I left the power on while I reset the router, not sure if that makes a difference.

If you reset the router (by button), and then do a new ipconfig /all on your PC, does it give the same IPs as in the results you posted before?

I have no idea, really.
The router I'm using came from a friend in England, and was set to work with his ISP and ADSL connection. Didn't work here, so I had to change it, to work with my ISP and ADSL. You are in a different country, with a different ISP, so I have no idea what your settings should be.

The results of "ipconfig /all" you posted look to me like it's not a router, but a modem, that's all I can see in it. You have your ISP as the host name, while normally, it would be your PC's name to be in that place. Then you have your external IP address as the address of your PC, which means it's not the router that gives you your IP, but your ISP.
Really, it looks to me like you're using a modem, not a router.

Sorry I can't help you further with this.
