Router setup page
I have a Linksys WRT54G wireless router and I can't get into my setup page. When I type the defaulted router address, I just get a bunch of wed sites. Please help.

Open a command prompt, Start, Run, CMD

In the command window, type: IPCONFIG

The gateway address is the address of your router, enter that into IE's address bar.

I have cable service from Time Warner/Roadrunner and I used to be able to go to the router setup page before, in fact it was only a few weeks ago that I went to the setup page and I didn't change any settings. That's what is puzzling me, no changes was made so I should be able to go there but I can't.

Type the following command:
