Cannot access brand new router. HELP!
I just bought a brand new Linksys Cisco E3200 router. I set almost everything up in my house through the included software and went to port forward for some of my games. I realized I had something wrong with the ports and when I went back to access the ports through the web by typing in which is the way I originally did the ports I could not. I then opened the software that came with the router and it could not detect the wireless network even though that is what I am using to type this now. Please help quickly!

Unless you are really experienced it's better to use an ethernet connection for router configuration.

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following command:


[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.
