Is it possible to configure linksys wireless through browser? What's
the port to connect to?
In the wireless window, it shows my router is open for public use,
while most of the other people's computer is protected...
If your Linksys router has the default settings, then clicking on this
link will bring up the config page:
http://192.168.1.1/Leave username blank, use 'admin' (no quotes) for the password.

Netgear does that on initial setup. You connect to:
the setup wizard. You can also go to:
it's done. However, this only works on the LAN side as Netgear
didn't bother to register these domains. They are essentially dead to
Netgear router users as the internal DNS cache in the router will not
resolve these domains. When I connect to them from my Linksys router,
I get the usual domain squatters splash pages. When I do it from a
WGR614 router, I get the configuration screen. I suspect that this
was done for the benifit of those users that are afraid of numbers and
I use various Dynamic DNS services to find my custmers routers.
I'll probably regret this, but you can get there with:
is not an impressive feat since the IP address is static.
However, the same method can be used a dynamic dns service provider to
find the IP address on the internet.
Henh. I own the DNS server, so I put in 192.168.1.1 as the IP address
for router.compusmiths.com, and when your machine resolves it, it goes
out to that address, which is your local router. Neat little hack,
but not very impressive at the end of the day.
Linksys and others could do the same, but note that it requires
functional internet access to resolve the DNS, and most of the time
you are doing the preliminary setup, and their tech support lines
would be inundated with "why doesn't router.linksys.com work?"
My tech support line has been strangely silent on this subject. 8*)
