This is my first post, I'm really hoping someone here is clever enough to help me out. I'm a bit of a noobie you see, so please bare with me if I have overlooked something simple.
Basically, I am trying to forward a port.
The problem is I can not access the router settings
- via firefox or internet explorer.
Now at one point in the past, I could and did access the settings no problem - but now when I try it is timed out.
I can surf the internet no problem, but when I try to access the router settings (http://192.168.1.1) it is timed out.
I can ping it and I get a response, so I'm not sure why this is happening?
I have set up a static ip address, still no joy.
One other problem is that I can not get to the router to reset it as it belongs to the landlord (who does not live on the premises) and I don't know where it is. I figure if I can still surf the net and ping the router then it does not need to be reset?
I have tried to access the router with all firewalls disabled but still no joy.
I am on windows 7/ubuntu8.10
The router is a Huawei EchoLife-HG520s
my download speed is nearly making me cry!
please please please can anyone help me?
