ok, this 192.168.0.1:8080 stuff ain't working neither. out of 10 times, it works 3 maybe 4 times. what gives with, if that is indeed true, blocking the access to the router? that is no acceptable. i need constant access to my router and its options, if nothing else to check the logs and\or add\change portforwarding rules. maybe add a new client to my network if having mac access control feature turned on? as of lately, i can access the login page but after hitting the apply button my browser (firefox) just freezes. what the? the only thing i can do is hit the back button. and the hit the forward button and try logging in again. anyone else experiencing same problems?

In Bridge mode, if I configure my pc with a static IP address of 192.168.0.x, and attach it directly to a LAN port, (with my internal router still connected) I get consistent results:
1. ping 192.168.0.1 - yes
2. http to port 8080 - login page
3. http to port 80 - login page (after registration)
4. http to port 80 - status page (before registration)
5. https to port 443 - status page (both before and after registration
6. https to port 5540 - login page (both before and after registration).
Note that port 80 serves up different pages before/after registration and you may have to force a refresh while navigating.
Also note that a router restart following a configuration change, will force the router through its pre & post registration states, and this can confuse your browser.
In Routed mode, the behavior may be different.
