How do find the IP address of my Asus RT-N66U Router?

Hello:

Today I connected a new RT-N66U wireless router to my Sagemcom F@st 2864 box.
As I don't really know what I am doing, I 'fiddled' around a bit but got it working, ie, I can connect wirelessy to the Asus.
*BUT* now when I goto 192.168.1.1 in the browser, I get "Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to 192.168.1.1"
So, I have the following questions:
1) How do I find at which IP address my Asus is living?
2) If I press the 'reset' button on the Sagemcom, will I lose all my Internet & TV settings & passwords?

(I'm thinking about resetting the Sagemcom because I can't remember which settings I fiddled with other than disabling the wireless.)

Edit: I think that my Sagemcom says that the Asus is 192.168.2.11 but when I enter that into a browser I still get the "Oop's" message.

Thanks for any advice.

Rob.

Open a command prompt and type this : ipconfig

The gateway IP address should be your Asus router if it's the one giving out DHCP leases.

are you going from one of the 4 Yellow LAN ports of the Sagemcom to the WAN port of the asus?

the ip is 192.168.1.1, I have the same router.

My only question is after you've figured out and cured this issue flash that router with Tomato Toastman or Shibby builds.

Thanks people!

Tomorrow I will start over.

First I will 'reset' the RT-N66U and then start over again.

I don't think that I'll 'reset' the Sagemcom because I am afraid of losing passwords etc originally set up by the Bell guy.

I think is was Benjamin Franklin who once said: "If you want to have a happy life, don't screw up the Internet & the Fibe TV for your wife!" Or, maybe it was Jimmy Hoffa...

Your Asus RT-N66U router would prably work well with the default settings. You would access the router via the 192.168.1.1 address, or the default gateway address shown with CMD --> IPCONFIG

Also, you can then access the Bell unit via 192.168.2.1.

Well, I did the 'reset' and re-installed it - it is working just fine.

Not knowing 'how to quit when you're ahead', I'm going to complicate my life by trying to throw a Tomato at it, I hope it sticks!

Thanks again for your help.

Tomato isn't that complicated the flashing process on Asus routers is next to impossible to screw up. You cannot really brick them. I always followed Teddy's flashing guide and have no problems. The guide works for Toastman and Shibby's builds for me.
