Yeah.

I think.. Is that when you just type 192.168.1.1 again? I did that and it wouldn't bring it up..

Unless there is a way to log into it (I really don't know what I'm doing and following their instructions didn't seem to help).

Think about it though. It's not a purchase you make every day. Why not buy something solid that will last you a long time...

Usually after a reset (normally after a firmware upgrade the router gets reset too) the IP for the router changes back to 192.168.0.1. The username/PW would be the factory default too

Austin, try 192.168.1.100

Also, it should have reset to factory default. See if there's a manual online for your firmware version. It should let you know whats up. Chances are your IP may have changed as well as your wireless network ID.

I will.

Can you PM me your number if I need to call later? It might be ~6-7 your time.

Laptop? If so plug directly into the router and try those addresses.

I wouldn't buy (and haven't) an AC router for another 6+ months. AC can support up to 8 antennas and the best AC router I can find only has 6 antennas. So if I'm going to spend over $100 on a router to last awhile then I'm going to wait several months until they're built to their potential. Just my 2 cents.

Unless you live in a mansion, the range on these is perfectly fine already.

Once logged in you could also change channels. The auto is channel 11 I live in apartment complex so there are a bunch of Wi-Fi networks cluttering the air. I changed to channel 5 and my network is running fine.

One thing to think about if you live in an apartment complex or other place crowded with networks, is to go dual-band. After moving into my new apartment a few months ago my old N router was having massive connectivity issues.

Eventually replaced it with a DLink DIR-860L and now I still have the same problems with my 2.4 ghz devices, but my 5ghz devices are fast as shit.

Still not working. Plugged directly into the router, I tried both addresses and I still get the "unable to
Connect to Internet" thing.

Ok. So I got it to work being plugged in, I had a feeling that the cord I was using was faulty as I tried to use it on my apple tv a long time ago with poor results. So I grabbed another and it works.

I can't figure out how to get the internet to work again wirelessly.. I went through all the settings on the IP address thing and it seems like it should be working. The router didn't lose it's settings or anything and my old password is still there..

---------- Post added at 06:13 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:58 PM ----------

Hahaha. It works now, I have no clue why. Just started working while I was reading on YB.

Thanks for your help guys.

If AC wireless was sent out like wireless N then I would agree (i.e. dispersed evenly from the router location). However, AC uses beamforming and that will require the use of more antennas. Also considering more and more things are coming out with Wifi hookup, it's just using more antennas.

Your words exactly, "Why not buy something solid that will last you a long time..." Why spend the money now and get one with only 6 antennas when you could wait 6 months and get on that will operate at it's most potential? If I'm going to buy something to last a long time, I'm not buying now simply to have the newest stuff and skimping on potential capability.

Like I said, it's just my 2 cents. I'm waiting several months before I make the jump to AC.

OP, if it were me, I would go to start > cmd > type ipconfig /all > look at the default gateway of the LAN adapter and that is the IP address that you should be trying to access on your browser

I don't want to buy an AC router because nothing I have will utilize the AC. Only B,G, and N. I don't plan on buying another network adapter for some time. I have two cards not being used right now. I live in an apartment and just turned on the auto channel feature. No problems so far, and I grabbed the crappiest router from the house when I left.
