I Have a Linksys BEFW11S4 ver 2 router. It has been set to bridge mode for as long as I can remember so it could work with my Speedstream 5667 routed modem. The router functions in that modem are extremely limited so I purchased a Speedstream 4200 modem which can be set into bridge mode letting the linksys router do all the routing.
My problem is I can not access the web based utility for the router. The manual says that all you do is type 192.168.1.1 in your browser and you should be able to access it but when I do that nothing happens. I have tried doing this while having the connection on my pc set to a standard Ip address setting I use and also the automatic and neither works. I have even tried totally resetting the router by holding the reset button for 10 seconds as suggested in the manual and no luck. I have also tried plugging my computer in various ports of the router with and without the modem hooked up and still no web based utility.
Does anyone have any clue how I can get in to access the web based utility so I can properly configure the router and take it out of bridge mode?
