Can't Access Router by IP

Hi,
I can't access the Huawei 533 modem router by using the IP address anymore.

When I type 192.168.1.1 I just get "cannot display web page".

It alway has worked OK, but now I can't get in to change the wifi password.

O/S = Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit with SP1.

Thanks for any assistance you may be able to offer,
~Mike~

Re: Can't Access Router by IP

Clear the browser cache and history

If no better try different browser

no better? do a factory reset on the router;

Re: Can't Access Router by IP

anything will work as the user and password for allmost everybody nowadays

but if you could try typing ipconfig in to command prompt look for you default gateway this should be the ip of your router

I Know the IP address. But when I type it in any browser I get the "cannot display web page" error. This is a fault where the router will not show the UI.

I have just read elsewhere on the forum that TT have just carried out an automatic Firmware update for these routers and is causing this problem.

and a factory reset will cure it if that is the case.

router settings;

Re: Can't Access Router by IP

probably easier just to reset the router

the router will then be accessible via the 192.168.1.1 ip address

after this you can configure your router as you had it previously, if you changed anything (SSID, password, etc)

I Reset the modem router last night and it retained the username and password.
The Setup pages are now available and back to normal.

Thanks for the advice. Greatly appreciated. Smile
