Cannot log into my Router

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?TWljaGFlbEo=?=, May 9, 2005.

  1. I am new to the wireless equipment and am struggling with logging into my
    router(Netgear WGT624) in a Dell Dimension Desktop running XP. I am stuck
    when I try to ping the router thru Internet Explorer (I get a message stating
    '401 Unauthorized
    Access to this resource is denied; your client has not supplied the correct
    authentication.') I can ping the router through DOS, though. Is this a
    firewall issue?

    The solution is probably simple, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Possibly. You can determine that very easily by disabling
    your firewall and retrying your IE operation.

    If you can access your router with the firewall disabled,
    you probably need to add some IP addresses to the trusted
    address list, if you are using NIS.

    First, in DOS (Start / Run / cmd), execute `ipconfig /all`.
    Second, in NIS, click Personal Firewall / Configure /
    Networking / Trusted. Add any IP addresses that you see
    in the ipconfig output. You should not need to add
    192.168.* addresses, however.

    I encountered similar problems, though not with accessing
    my router. I had to add the DNS server addresses and
    the default gateway address to the NIS trusted address
    list.

    Note: In IE, I also selected "Do not search from Address
    bar" in Tools / Internet Options / Advanced.

    It's interesting that you have DOS on an XP machine..... are you sure you
    don't mean the command line interface?

    I've never heard of *ping* using IE. Are you sure that's what you mean?

    Better information - better answers.
