Thanks for understanding..this morning I performed a 'soft' reset on the gateway, everything seemed to perform properly. All of the indicator light's on the gateway 'blinked'..then one by one came back on. Then I tried once again to access the admin. page for the gateway..I received the following:
The connection has timed out
The server at 10.0.0.1 is taking too long to respond.
I'm kind of concerned now, I don't want to perform a 'hard/factory' reset..but I guess it wouldn't hurt anything.
