Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm trying to access my Linksys router from my browser via the address 192.168.1.1 but I'm getting the following error:

enter image description here

My router is on and connected to the internet, and I can access the internet from my computers if I connect them to the router with Ethernet cables.

Could the IP address to the Router have been changed? Can anyone help me access this router so that I can setup a wireless connection?

thanks in advance.

Apparently you CAN change your default router's IP address and someone had done that. I reset my router's settings by pressing a tiny Reset button at the back of the router and then could again access the Router's Administration Page at 192.168.1.1 and configure my wireless network following these steps:
