WRTU54g Access

Threaded View
This is just a spare I picked up at a garage sale to play with.
I can access setup wirelessly - and upgraded the firmware succesfully.
For some reason I cannot ping [192.168.0.1] or access the setup screen  
through the wired connection.
Reset does not help.
A curiosity, to me.
What am I missing?
Thank you.

Isn't it 192.168.1.1 that you want? Most Linksys default
locations are.

Re: WRTU54g Access
Yes, most are  192.168.1.1 but this is really "192.168.0.1" as marked on the  
device and how I accessed wirelessly.

Some possibilities:
  * The wired connection is a WAN port rather than LAN
  * You're using a cross-over cable, and shouldn't be
  * The NIC is bust
  * Firewall prohibits access from the NIC
  * Firmware is the wrong version for the board

Cable and NIC work fine with a different Linsys router.

And that's probably when it reverted back to 192.168.1.1

Which firmware, anyway? If it's something third-party like OpenWRT, then there
may be dozens of different reasons you can no longer access it.

Re: WRTU54g Access
No.  Real Linksys firmware.  version 1.00.25.
192.168.1.1 does not work and is not the correct IP.  Really.  The device  
says the IP is 192.168.0.1 and that is the address which works wirelessly.

I do note that when in the setup page [wireless access] the device IP is  
"blank" but cannot be filed in.

Perhaps I'll try reinstalling the firmware.

What browser? I have found that some firmware doesn't play well with
anything other than IE.

WindowsXP; IE8.

PC's NIC and LED on router for the port both light up.

Possibly the DHCP server is disabled on the wired ports.

Try setting the PC's wired port for a fixed IP like 192.168.0.55 and see  
if that gets you back into the box when you plug into one of the  
router's 4 LAN ports.

Re: WRTU54g Access
Bingo!
I had forgotten that the PC was set to a static IP: 192.168.1.154.  Changed  
to 192.168.0.154 and accessed the router just fine.
Thank you for the solution.
