verizon router help
I'm trying to access the router settings for my actiontec MI424WR router. I tried typing in the address into firefox and internet explorer, but i can never get in. I just can't log in no matter what I type into the fields! Can someone please help? 192.168.1.1 is the address.

What do you see when you do that? I have that exact router, and I have no problem accessing it at that address.

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

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

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

OK, you can't get the correct name/password for the router's setup? Reset it to factory defaults, then use the following values:

Name: admin
PW: password

Note, CASE MATTERS!

Hold the reset key in with power on for more than 10 seconds.
