These seem like they may be related, but when i go to "Run" and type in "ipconfig" it closes instantly. Also, when I type in my IP in my browser to go to the router config it loads fine, but clicking anything results in a 404 error, could anyone tell me what's going on?

*EDIT*

Forgot to mention, I'm using Windows XP. If any other info would be useful let me know.

In "Run" type "cmd" then in command prompt (cmd) type "ipconfig", then it won't disappear. A web page should only be returned when typing in your IP if you have a web server setup and forwarded on your LAN. Try typing your default gateway in on an internet browser (shown in ipconfig).

Hmm thank you very much, It slipped my mind I should have entered it through the cmd. After typing the gateway into my browser I got a username/password request, guess I'll have to talk to my landlord about that xD

Erm, your landlord? You mean either your router manufactorer, or the network administrator? Look in the router's manual, it will say the default credentials in that. Most routers default are "admin" and "admin" for the username and password. Belkin's is "" (blank).

Ah yeah I figured that out not too much later, admin for both password and username worked. Thanks again!
