Many routers are set to 192.168.1.1. The simple way to deal with it is to change the ip of one of your boxes to 192.168.1.x and use that box to access the router. Then you will be able to change the router address to 192.168.0.1. Reboot. You must then change your box back to 192.168.0.x From then on your router can be configured through your normal browser without problems. Anne
