    I have a Netgear MR814 router. I used to be able to access the configuration screen by entering 192.168.0.1 in the address bar and then inputting the default username (admin) and password (password).

    That stopped working a while ago. I decided to reset the router to its default setting by pressing and holding the reset button on the unit. It didn't seem to work. I can still access the internet, but I can't get to the configuration screen. Sometimes it says that the server is busy without giving me the option to enter a username and password. Other times it does ask for the username and password. When I input them, it seems like it is going to work and the screen starts to load. Then it asks me enter the username and password again.

    Can anyone help.

    BTW the ISP is Comcast

    try resetting again, but hold the reset button in while unplugging, wait, and then re plugging the power supply to the router.
    if that doesn't work, dropkick the router across the room. When I had this problem, my roommate did that (to my horror), and everything magically work, and has been working ever since.
