Hi I am trying to set up a Belkin ADSL modem with high speed mode wireless-g router, which I purchased several years ago. It is to replace my bt broadband modem.
I have reached the stage where I need to access the web-based management user interface of the router and am typing 192.168.2.1 into my browsers address bar, as per instructions. Instead of connecting to the router, a box is popping up saying "the web page you requested is not available offline. To view this page click connect".
Any one know why this is? Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Thanks for replying. Have tried the above, but still having same problem. Am wondering if I am using the correct cable to connect PC and router? I have tried both a grey cable which says 5e patch cable and a blue cable which say cat 4 4pr master cable. Is this the same as an ethernet cable? Am a complete novice to this!
Thanks for the help. Checked leads, same message came up but this it still took me to router! So all set up and working. Just one more novice question: My router has 4 hard wired points as well as wireless capabilities. Is there a maximum number of computers that can connect to it wirelessly, at the same time?
As each computer connects to the router it is allocated an IP address. The number of IP addresses it can allocate will determine the number of computers (it could be over 100). You would not want to connect too many at the same time as it would affect bandwidth and slow the system down.
