this is probably not the correct place for this but please help if you can
I’ve just got dsl and am trying to connect my pc to the router. I was able to ping the router so i know that i was connected.
The next step was to configure the router. I Opened up the webpage typed in the ip address and was then prompted to enter the username and password once i done this the page started to open but only got as far as saying web configurator up at the very top, as in where it says Microsoft Internet Explorer.
This page should open promptly as it is stored on the router.
The router and cable definitely work as i connected it to the laptop and it worked fine?
I rang my ISP and they were unable to help so far. Since i have spoken to them i have not been able to ping the router and when i do ipconfig its the wrong ip address, even when i select obtain ip address automatically and when i input the ip address i get the same issue.
I feel like i took ten steps back after calling the ISP.
Im using windows xp home SP1
AMD Athlon XP 2000+
VIA PCI 10/100MB Fast Ethernet Adapter
anyone any suggestions, similar experiences??
