So I'm trying to set up my router and all of the websites i navigate to (including this one) load just fine, but the website to set up my router (http://10.0.0.1) and most importantly, password protect it, is not loading. It times out. Anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions/solutions?
I'm am connected to the internet by ethernet to the rented comcast modum- i'm not connecting via the router, though it is working (I can see it as a possible wireless network when i turn on my airport)
router is a rented Netgear n150 wireless router WNR 1000v2 - rented through comcast
Thanks for posting that info , it helped me get to the right page but I still can't figure out how to change the starting user name and password. Yes I know it says the user name will always be admin, but I can't figure out how to change the password from password to my word. I am very computerilliterate, but am learning.
Again, what router? What is the complete output of "ipconfig /all"?
If the default gateway is 10.0.0.1 and your connection works, in other words you can visit web sites, get email, etc. then it's correct and SHOULD respond at http://10.0.0.1 . If you are using an old browser when using an IP address instead of a hostname, you sometimes have to explicitly type the "http://" part of the URL.
