    I cannot open my Router connections. I type in 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.2.2
    to try connecting to my router. All I get is the dreaded page cannot be
    found message. I tried this on 2 computers that are wired directly to the
    router and get the same thing. I'm trying to set up my home network so
    that my XP computer can access files and folders as well as my printer on
    the Windows 7 computer. The network name is the same on both computers,
    file and printer sharing are on, Network discovery is turned on, on the
    Windows 7 computer, and everything seems to be set up properly, but I just
    can't seem to get into my router to access the network key.

    Any thoughts?

    Are you sure you have the right IP address for the router? The ones I've
    used have all been 192.168.1.1 out of the box. What router is it?

    Is there a reset button on the router to restore it to its original
    configuration?

    192.168.1.1 and 192.168.0.1 are the two most popular default router IPs that
    I have experienced. What's the brand and model number of your router?

    Turn off your computer, then the router, then the DSL or Cable modem.
    Turn them back on in reverse order, waiting about a minute between each.
    You will have done power-on resets and let the devices find each other.
    With luck problem will go away.

    The only "key" that would be needed is for wireless which you don't mention
    in your post. What make/model router? Are you connecting to the right
    address?

    Open a CMD window on a working PC. Execute the "ipconfig" command. The
    value for your gateway is the router address.

    Is your router connected by a network cable or wirelessly?

    My router won't accept a wireless connection; this is a security measure.

    Thanks for the quick responses everybody. Yes, my router is on 192.168.2.1,
    but I have tried 192.168.2.2 as well. I did not cold boot everything yet.
    I will do that shortly and report the results here. I also ran ipconfig to
    verify my routers ip, and yes it does end in 1.

    See y'all in the morning.

    ipconfig would thell you the IP of the PC, not the rtr.

    From that, you can gather the subnet the rtr *should* be on, but not the individual IP
    address.

    Wait, that's not right........

    .........If the rtr is doing DHCP (assigning IPs to PCs, most likely), the rtr should be set as
    the default gateway......

    So just doing: ipconfig *does* show the default gateway.

    Another way is to use: route print

    Look at the output for the default route, that's usually the first entry, and has a destination
    & netmask listed as 0.0.0.0, on that line, the 'gateway' entry lists the rtr IP address.

    LouB got it.

    He will need three of them just for a nice pair of panties.
