    that is the default ip for linksys routers, but just to be sure:

    go into network connections and call up the status window for the active connection linked to the linksys router in question. what is your default gateway and dhcp server's ip listed as?

    also try using internet explorer to access your router as well as firefox.

    yes ,if it connects to internet sounds like a reset of router may help.
    to check nic card setup
    right click on network icon go to propertys left click
    right click connection go to propertys left click highlight tcp/ip
    go below to propertys popup windows should be set default to dynamic.

    if no internet connect first check make sure nic is enabled
