Linksys WRT54GL not working


Hi,

I have a Linksys WRT54GL that I am having an issue with. First I will explain what I am trying to do; I have a Netgear Moca device that is tied to my Verizon Fios Actiontec router; I am trying to use my Linksys as an access point off of the Moca device, so I can have more ports; the Moca device does not have a built in switch. I have my Linksys router plugged into my laptop (laptop into lan port 1; nothing plugged into wan port). I want to access the router administrator, so I can disable DHCP. When I type 192.168.1.1 I am not getting anything; I have reset the router to default setting, still nothing. I can see that I am getting a local connection on the bottom right, and if I ping 192.168.1.1 I do get a reply, it just won't log into the administrator. Any ideas on what this could be? Thanks

Is the Linksys connected to the Moca device at this point where you're having the problem? If so, you may have another device on the network besides the Linksys that is responding to the ping request.

No, at this point I am just hooking the Linksys router to my laptop, so I can change the configuration of the router to make it work just as an access point, then I will take it and hook it up to my Moca device. The router or the laptop is not hooked up to the internet at all. I did the same thing with an old Netgear router and it worked great. Thanks

You might try a 30-30-30 reset. If it still won't let you in, the router may be useless. If you really want to exhaust your options you could try scanning it for open ports.

I don't think that model has a recovery/tftp mode, but I could be wrong. It may also have some kind of jtag or serial connector on the board that you could attempt to connect to.

Are you certain that the router is assigning you an IP?

I would start by running ipconfig to verify this. What IP is it assigning you?

30-30-30 reset? Yes, it did assign me an ip off of the router, I forget what address it was. I also did a ping test for 192.168.1.1 and the router did respond. I had a similar problem with an old netgear router and I hooked it up-to a computer that was running xp and that got it to work (my computer is running vista). I tried bringing it up with IE and firefox and got the same result. Thanks

IP address is 192.168.1.157

Default Gateway 192.168.1.1

If I type the default gateway in the browser, I keep getting "404 not found"

Is it possible that the router is set to only allow secure connections? Try changing from http to httpS://192.168.1.1 and see if it responds.

The linksys and the laptop should be the only connection

Since the ip allocated by the linksys is 192.168.1.157 the linksys ip address should be 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.254

If the linksys ip is not one of the ip's above a ip scanner can be used to find the ip address
