I have a netgear router with several computer connected to it. I can access the internet fine but cannot access the router page. When I try to ping 192.168.1.1 it times out. This seems really strange to me. Has anybody seen this before?

Are you certain that 192.168.1.1 is your gateway address? My Netgear router at our cabin uses 192.168.0.1 by default, although I'm sure it varies from model to model.

If that is the correct gateway, have you reset the router?

if you're using a linux system you have utilities as Avahi-browser and nmap that can help you find services and hosts on your local network. Avahi-browser is easier to use.

I suggest you read the manual, or at least the back of the router...it should give you hints.

If I could remember correctly, www.routerlogin.com will take you to the router site.

Check the gateway address on your host machine - is it what you expect?

Check that you don't have wireless switched on in case you are unwittingly connecting to the internet through someone else's connection.
