Re: MVP HOSTS file Blocking Access to Linksys Router Config

He's probably talking about these:


127.0.0.1 192.168.112.2o7.net
127.0.0.1 192.168.122.2o7.net


where '192....' is part of the name, not the address

There are a couple of entries that begin with 192.168.1 in the HOSTS file

Exactly Dave. Those are entries in the MVPS HOSTS file. I don't know when they were added (the OP said he/she was using an older HOSTS file from a few years back on XP without problems).
I don't know either whether that is the only issue on his/her system.

BTW there is also a Linksys forum here:
»Linksys
(I don't know whether cross-posting is allowed in this case).

Yes, but an entry for the name 192.168.112.2o7.net can have no effect on him connecting to the address 192.168.1.1 (or any other address).

You're absolutely right, Dave, without any doubt!

And to be honest: I should have made that more clear in my post while I did know it. Instead my post might have caused more confusion which I do regret.
