  1. Whenever i type in my ip address in my internet address bar(192.168.x.y) the page brings me to "Unable to connect" "FireFox cannot establish a connection to the server 192.168.x.y". I have also tried it in IE but it just google searches my IP Address. Also this problem is usually off and on. One day i can get on and the next day it wont let me access the page.

    first, get a command prompt and enter IPCONFIG

    the last line shown as the Default address is your router's address.

    If that's the address you already attempted, then

    download LSPFIX,
    install and run from an ADMIN login, reboot the system and then try accessing your router again.

    I'm sure you've already checked this but just make sure that the cables are properly connected (don't even think its worth mentioning, but just in case)

    I had a similar problem with a damaged RJ45 cable

    don't forget that the system at 192.168.x.y
    1. *must* have a service running that will accept port 80 inputs AND
    2. that your router *must* forward port 80 to 192.68..x.y AND
    3. your firewall *must* allow inputs from ANY IP source, Port 80

    The device and your machine should have the same address' class, i.e. 102.168.0.*
    Only the last number must be different.
    You can check your machine's IP typing IPCONFIG in a console, and refer to router's manual for the factory Ip setting of the device.
