Unable to connect to router

I have just built a new PC and everything is working as it should.

I can connect to the internet just fine, but I am unable to connect to the router, and I can't figure out why. I have run IPCONFIG to ensure it is indeed 192.168.1.1 (which it is)... but when I try that in my broswer, it just times out and says page not available. I have tried in Chrome and IE (Admittedly in IE I couldn't get it to stop trying to put the http:// in front).

The PC I've built uses an MSI Z97M Gaming motherboard, which has Killer Ethernet. That is the only thing I can think of that could be causing an issue, but I can't find any solutions to that.

The PC is connected to the router via Ethernet cable, and is connected to the internet (I'm using it to type this post). I am able to connect to the router with my phone and tablet.

If there's anything anyone else can think of or help with... I would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks in advance.

Hi Jock,

Yes, I had a look at that thread before... but no luck. I haven't entered anything manually.

I have no idea what the issue is... but it is definitely frustrating!
