Accessing 192.168.1.1


I was able to access my router in Win XP by typing 192.168.1.1. (Type name and password) However now that I switched to Win 7 I'm not able to do so. I have a Linksys WRT160 N router. I wanted to change my password. Every time I type 192.168.1.1 I transfers me to google search. In Firefox it tells me that I cannot connect. Cisco told me that I out of warranty and they can't help unless I go to the pay section. Any suggestions. Thanks

Good Morning Everyone, this is my 1st time posting on this forum so please forgive me if I am not following some rules.

We have an office with 12 - 14 computers. We are running a domain network (going to be switching to workgroup network).

Anyways we are using Act by Sage 2008 to manage all of our customers.

We just setup 2 new laptops in the office which use wireless and wired connections (so if wired is disconnected, it uses wireless automatically).

1 laptop is running windows 7 pro 64bit and other is running windows 7 ultimate 64bit.

Ok so we have a network server on which we have the ACT database called server or 192.168.1.22

From computer with windows 7 ultimate 64bit we connect directly to server and it works (we use Windows Virtual PC to run XP mode on both computers). On a computer with windows 7 pro 64bit we cannot connect to server and can only connect to 192.168.1.22.

Do to the fact that we cannot connect to server directly there is some type of a problem on the computer setup.

Can someone please help me resolve this issue?

Again Thank You so much for all the help and support!

Your answers will be accepted and tested.

Thanks Again and have a good morning everyone!

I have an older Vista 64-bit laptop that was working okay (after cleanup and bringing forward on all fixes). I updated it to create a partition where I installed Win7 64-bit, creating a dual boot environment (also then fully updated with all fixes). This worked fine, until...

I hit the last step of the Win7 install which applied optional software updates for the hardware (drivers mostly for the laptop components). After this, the network slowed to a crawl.

I chased this for several days, then called in my ISP because I found private range IP address, 192.168.137.1, being searched for on the public network. Ping and tracert showed this address somewhere in the wild. It was not on my LAN or router. When my workstation nodes only were active on my LAN, everything was fine, including router response. When I brought up the Win7 partition on the laptop, the network went down the tubes (30-60 second response). The Vista partition did not have this problem.

The ISP technician had me check out the device properties on the network devices (all 3 nodes), leading to the discovery that the laptop Atheros WiFi adaptor under Win7 had a fixed IP for DNS set to 192.168.137.1 (apparently set up by the download and install of the driver update for this device).

I manually unchecked the fixed IP specification, checked the dynaimic IP acquisition options, re-booted and all went well (all nodes and router were once again fully responsive).

Has anyone else had experience with this IP address (in any way)?

Why would a driver install set up an unknown fixed IP for DNS server component? The installed driver and the updated driver were both from Microsoft (compatibility drivers), while the original WiFi driver under Vista was from the adaptor vendor (Atheros).

A Google search shows IP 192.168.137.1 to be involved in some sort of networking or file sharing configurations, and in XBox configurations.

Any feedback that you can share would be greatly appreciated. The real question here is why did this compatibility driver get installed with Win7 and why was it configured with a fixed IP for DNS?

Thanks in advance.




-I've been using a wireless linksys router for my two machines, one of which runs Windows 7, the other XP. Both my computers are physically wired to the router (the wireless is just for my roommates).
-I have a wired linksys router that I'm trying to use (getting rid of the wireless for now)
-I replaced the wireless router (that I was physically plugged into) with the Wired one.
-AIM found the connection and started up and I have a brief window to open up webpages (mind you while I was doing this it still showed the blue circle over the connections icon in the lower left of the screen) Then I lost connection and I can't even find the router when I enter in 192.168.1.1 or when I tracert google.com. It's just not there. It gives me the yellow exclamation mark over the connection icon and says "No Internet Access."
-I've also tried pinging 192.168.1.1 and it just says "PING: transmit failed: General failure."
-If I simply unplug the router for 30 seconds and plug it back in it still doesn't work (not even for that brief moment that I mentioned), BUT if I switch back to my wireless router (again plugged into it) and then switch back to the wired router it again "works" for that magical 20 seconds or so while its searching for a connection and then dispears again.

I've used this router before, so I know it works. I'm just baffled on why it ONLY works when its searching for a connection right after I've had it plugged into the other router for 20 seconds or so.
-Also my windows XP computer has the same problem (it sees that it's plugged in, but it only gives the yellow exclamation point and no internet access).




Hello,
I have a following problem:

Laptop is Windows XP and other PC is Windows 7.
I shared the C: partition in Windows 7 and set up the IP address [192.168.1.30],
I also did the same with laptop with WinXP [192.168.1.20].

In Laptop - when I go to Windows Explorer I can see both computers, but when I try to double-clik Windows 7 icon, it
pops out the message
"Windows7C is not accessible. You might not have the permission to use this network resource. Contact...Access is Denied!"
But, when I do the same thing from PC with Windows 7 installed - it works with no problem at all! I am able to access Windows XP C: partition.

Please help me solve this, since I assume that this is no big problem for some of many experienced users at this forum.

Thank You.

Marko




I have a Compaq C712NR Laptop that is using a Broadcom 802.11g Wireless Adapter. The laptop came with Windows Vista pre-installed, and I've never had any issues with it previously. I recently upgraded to Windows 7 and I can no longer get internet access. Here is my best description of the problem and what I've tried to do to fix it.

The adapter is using the latest driver from HP (dated 10/22/2008) and the computer says it is running properly with no issues found. The wireless connection from my router is detected by the computer and I'm able to connect to the network. The wireless icon in the lower right corner shows an exclamation point and the words "no internet access" if you mouse over it. If you double-click on it, the picture shows a connection to the router but no connection to the internet.

I opened up the command prompt window and typed "ping www.google.com" and lo and behold I got a reply. The weird thing is that right after I received the first reply from www.google.com, the "no internet access" message went away and the wireless menu shows a valid connection to the internet. However, I still have no internet access through IE, Firefox or Outlook Express (command prompt ping still works). I have tried to re-install the driver. I am unable to access the router in IE or Firefox by going to 192.168.1.1.

I seem to be getting mixed messages from Windows about whether my network access is good or not (obviously it isn't). I've also tried unplugging everything in my network (router, modem, etc), but this didn't work either.

I'm out of ideas, and I really need to get this computer up and running. Any suggestions?

OK - so its not just windows updates - I have internet access to a point.
Itunes Store I keep getting following error when trying to access my account (and the windows
update error was occuring BEFORFE i installed Itunes. I just think its all linked to the same issue with DHCP because
I can log in to the Itunes store - I just can't access any of the secure areas of the store.
There are loads of other errors re DHCP in the event log over the last 24 hours - however I'm trying to narrow it down to specifics.
HELP????




No wireless internet on my Dell Inspiron 1545 running window 7 professional 64 bit . When I click on status I get connected,but Ip4 and Ipv6 no internet access. Sometimes it will show the network and other times it is an unidentified network.When I run the network troubleshooter it is inconsistent and says two different things "windows could not automatically detect this networks proxy settings" and something about the default gateway not being available.

I have googled this problem for many hours and tried many different things with no luck

uninstalled network adapter dell wireless 1397 wlan mini-card and reinstalled
made sure driver was updated
updated router firmware (linksys 2.4ghz 4 port switch)
turned off bonjour itunes in services
manually entered ip address, subnet mask, and default gateway
turned off ipv6
turned off anti-virus

I forgot to mention that the computer works on the ethernet cable and the wireless also works at the coffee shop. Plus I have another laptop running xp that works fine wireless

I've been using wireless internet for months with my new computer which has Windows 7 64-bit. Today I disabled the wireless security for a bit, then tried to enable it, now I can't connect to anything. The problems are: 'The DNS server isn't responding' and 'Local Area Connection doesn't have a valid IP config'. My wireless icon keeps switching between a yellow exclamation point icon and a circular blue loading icon. It says it's connected but I cannot browse the net, I can access my router information though. My router/modem are definitely on and connected. I've done many power cycles on those and my computer. My modem is Comcast and my router is a Netgear WPN824 V2. The router has the most recent firmware.

Here is my ipconfig data:

Please help, I need the internet on my computer to be able to do work. Thanks in advance.




We have a situation where one user on our network (Sally) periodically can't
access mapped drives on the Windows 2003 Small Bus. Server (also, a domain
controller). Sally's PC is running WinXP (SP1) and the SBS server is
up-to-date on all patches as well. Randomly, she cannot access drives which
are mapped as part of her Group Policy (all other aspects of the Group
Policy seem to be operational). All other network PC's access the server's
drives fine.

In the Event Viewer on the SBS server, there are entries in the Security
log: Event ID 529 (bad username or password). But here is the thing - the
Event Vioewer entries list a different username than wah Sally is using! The
machine name is 'PC1000' but the username in the event listings (event ID
529) is 'jim' - not 'sally'. Jim is another user on the network who logged
into Sally's PC while she was on vacation a year ago. Also, when Sally
prints something to a printer which is shared from the SBS 2003 server, the
entry in the System Events indicates the document was submitted by 'jim' and
not 'sally.

The specific data in the event Viewer regarding Event ID 529 is:
Reason: Unknown Username or bad password
Domain: servername
Logon type:3
Logon Process: NtLmSsp
Authentication Package: NTLM
Workstation name: PC1000
Source Network Address: 192.168.1.150
Source port: 1790

I suspect something in the PC's registry may be amiss and it's having an
identity crisis. I've tried deleting and recreating her domain account as
well as unjoining and rejoining the PC into the domain: no success. Any
suggestions appreciated (aside from reinstalling WinXP Thanks!




The following problem has got me and 2 experts I have consulted beat, so far.

A small network peer to peer network with mixed Windows 98, Windows 2000 computers and a single Windows XP machine were functioning just fine.

The Windows XP is used as a workstation and also functions as a file-server.

A Nokia ADSL router (model M1122) was attached to the network. One by one the computers were configured to obtain an IP address automatically from the DHCP server on the router - they had previously been configured with fixed IP addressess.

All went well on the Windows 98 and Windows 2000 machines. But the Windows XP machine cannot see the router at all. A ping from the XP machine to the router fails, and the XP machine cannot obtain an IP address from the router and will start up in autoconfigure mode or with address 0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0.

The actual IP address of the router is 192.168.1.1.

If I fix the IP address of the Windows XP machine (the server) to, say, 192.168.1.100 / 255.255.255.0 there is full interconnectivity between the it and the other computers on the network for example the Windows 98 machine at 192.168.1.2/255.255.255.0. Ping and file access work perfectly both ways. The XP machine can also ping itself successfully. However it still cannot even ping the router at 192.168.1.1.

All this would not matter if it were not for the fact that the user of the XP machine needs to be able to access the Internet, hence see the router.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.




I have an HP Paviillion running Windows 7 Ultimate. It is connected via cat 5 to a Dlink 655 router. Wireless nic on HP is disabled. Also connected to router is my HP Laptop (Windows 7 Ultimate), Dell Inspiron Laptop (XP - SP2) and HP Netbook (Windows 7 Premium).

Since Sunday, March 16, every afternoon, around 1:30 on MT, my HP Pavillion loses access to the internet. More specifically, all DNS fail. I can still ping / access all other pc's on the LAN and on the internet if done by IP. This only happens to my Pavillion - no problem with the other PCs. Rebooting seems to be the only cure to the situation.

* An "ipconfig /release - ipconfig /renew" does not solve the problem.
* Logging off and back on does not solve the problem.
* I had my Pavillion referencing OpenDNS for DNS references. I have tried using 4.2.2.2 and the relay through my router (192.168.1.1) to my ISP's dns servers - to no avail.
* I have examined the task scheduler for something / anything that might regularly at that time of day. Nothing
* I have examined the event log for funky messages - nothing.
* I have examined my router's logs - nothing
* FWIW, i am routinely connected (and have been for years) via RDP from my Pavillion to my HP Laptop. This connection stays solid, and as noted, my laptop does not lose access to net.
* I did a system restore back to Sunday morning, March 16. This was just prior to a Windows update. Did no good. (BTW, same update had been applied to laptop and netbook with no ill effects.
* An ipconfig /all looks "normal".

I am at a loss.




Yet again I have encountered problems after connecting my LAPTOP (XP Pro) to another "network" ( to another router. Only accessed the internet, not other PC's). Previously worked fine. Now I am back home, I cannot access other PC's (XP Home) on my network via Windows Explorer.

Currently have only 3 machines live (till the kids get home!) - IP addresses assigned by router.

OFFICE 192.168.1.101
BACKUP 192.168.1.100
LAPTOP 192.168.1.103

Workgroup is called "WORKGROUP".

IIRC, the IP addresses for OFFICE & Backup were previously reversed. To keep it simpler I will ignore "Backup".

Though I cannot access "OFFICE" from LAPTOP via Windows Explorer:

- I can access OFFICE via Windows Explorer if I type in the IP address
- I can ping "OFFICE" from LAPTOP fine
- I can access LAPTOP from OFFICE via Windows Explorer
- OFFICE is visible in "Workgroup" under "My Network Places"

Clicking on OFFICE yields an error though. At the moment I get "OFFICE is not accessible. You might not have .... etc ... You were not connected because a duplicate name exists on the network. ....".

Seems the "remote cache name table" on LAPTOP either has duplicate entries for OFFICE or is corrupted ????

Running "NBTSTAT -c" yielded (ignoring inactive wireless connection stuff)

Local Area Connection:
Node IpAddress: [192.168.1.103] Scope Id: []

NetBIOS Remote Cache Name Table

Name Type Host Address Life [sec]
------------------------------------------------------------
BACKUP UNIQUE 192.168.1.100 342
OFFICE UNIQUE 192.168.1.100 342
OFFICE UNIQUE 192.168.1.101 207

Interestingly one son is now home & I now get

Local Area Connection:
Node IpAddress: [192.168.1.103] Scope Id: []

NetBIOS Remote Cache Name Table

Name Type Host Address Life [sec]
------------------------------------------------------------
BACKUP UNIQUE 192.168.1.100 385
GEOFFREY UNIQUE 192.168.1.111 147
GEOFFREY UNIQUE 192.168.1.111 147
OFFICE UNIQUE 192.168.1.100 72

- now only one OFFICE entry but it is the same IP as BACKUP
- 2 GEOFFREY entries, both with the same IP
- I **can** access shared folders on GEOFFREY
- But still **cannot** access OFFICE (or BACKUP)

FWIW: I notice that if I run "ipconfig /all",

- On OFFICE I get "IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : Yes"
- On LAPTOP I get "IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : No"

#### QNS ####

1. Is the "IP Routing Enabled" difference significant

2. Would "NBTSTAT -R" fix this problem ?

3. Or would it make it worse ?

4. If not (2) above, is there some alternative fix ?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for the long post!

David

Windows VISTA SP2 64-bit, completeley up to date.

Most recently I did two things.

A) Swapped out a WRT54G for a NETGEAR N300 router
B) Uninstalled ISP flavor of McAfee, used the McAfee clean tool, and installed McAfee 2011 Total Security

I have an HP J6480, with an EWS (Embedded Web Server)

Another PC in the home, running VISTA SP1, 31-bit and the ISP flavor of Mcaffe, can access the server fine.
Another PC (my work PC) running XP SP3 with McAfee corporate security, can acces the server fine.
Also, this PC acess it fine before I reloaded McAfee and changed out the router.

However, my main PC, VISTA 64Bit, CANNOT access the web server. The web server is accessed via a fixed IP address. I have tried it in CHROME and IE8. Both get the same results.

The page does start to load, as you see the header in the browser change. However it hangs after that.

I looked at the source on the page:

HP Officejet J6400 series

That seem to align with what I am seeing:
The bottom of the browser shows
Waiting for http://192.168.1.150/index.htm?cat=i...ge=printerInfo

I am thinking it is McAfee blocking access somehow, but I cannot see how...

Any ideas??

Thanks....

If there is a better forum to post to, let me know!!




I've been using W7 just fine for several weeks, but recently when I logged on my iTunes, IE7 and MSN could not connect to the internet. Firefox and Skype, however, do it just fine with no problems. I am completely clueless as to what could be the culprit in such a selective way. Any ideas?

Thanks

Btw, msn gives me the error code 80048820 but all the solutions related to that error have been completely useless.

In a nutshell, my Windows 7 Ultimate (64bit) PC intermittently drops it's internet connection. Why?

Background: My PC is wired to my ADSL modem/router which is directly connected to the phone line. I also have wireless connectivity turned on within the router for a laptop to connect wirelessly.

Every few hours or so, when using my PC, I find I cannot access the internet and pages will not load. Eventually, Windows7 will update the network icon in the task-tray to show the exclamation mark symbol on the network icon. Opening up the Network And Sharing Centre will show the red cross between the "Multiple Networks" and "The Internet".

I'm running Sun's VirtualBox on this machine and that creates a Network connection for itself. This doesn't seem to affect the intermittent dropping (i.e. the intermittent drops occur whether the VirtualBox connection is in use or not), and indeed, I have VirtualBox installed on two other machines (one Windows XP and the other Vista Home Premium (32bit)) and these operate with no issues.

When the connection does drop, I cannot access any internet pages, nor can I access the router's web admin page at http://192.168.1.1/, so I'm assuming I've lost all local LAN access too.

It's definitely not the router (or the internet connection itself) as my laptop, using the wireless connection (and running Vista Home Premium) continues to be able to access the internet (and the router's web admin pages) just fine.

Every time this happens, I can immediately restore all internet and LAN access by opening Network Adapter page, disabling the "Local Area Connection" and then re-enabling it. Give it a few seconds and everything is fine again. I assume this is because, beneath the GUI, it's effectively doing an "ipconfig /release" then "ipconfig /renew".

The IP assignment for the Windows 7 machine is the same both before and after the "drop". I have a DHCP server on the router issuing IP Addresses, however my Windows 7 machine uses a static address (192.168.1.2). I've also tried it with a dynamic IP Address (served up from the ADSL router) and there's no difference.

There are also no specific clues within the various System Event Logs, other than an event that relates to the connection dropping which is a "DNS Client Event" and this is generated after the connection has dropped and is an event detailing that DNS information can't be found for whatever website I may be trying to access, just after the connection has dropped.

The network adapter chipset is Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller and I have confirmed that this is the correct chipset for the motherboard (Asus M4A77TD PRO), and in fact, Windows Update installed an updated driver for this on 12/Jan/2009. The details of the update say that it's a Realtek software update from December 2009. Incidentally, I was still having the same intermittent problems prior to this update. It seems to have made no difference at all.

Does anyone know why this is happening and how to fix it? I've searched for answers to this and seen quite a few other people (even on MSDN/Technet forums) experiencing the same or almost the same problem, but with no clear resolution. Suggestions of turning off IPv6 on the LAN adapter, and ensuring there's no power management "sleeping" the network adapter have been tried but do not cure the problem. There does not seem to be any particular sequence of events that cause it to happen either. I've had it go twice in 20 minutes when just randomly browsing the web with no other traffic, and I've also had it go once then not go again for 2-3 hours with the same sort of usage.

Can anyone tell me why this is happening and how to make it stop?
