Im switching to a (relatively) new computer and I'm having difficulty with the router. The router works fine with the old PC but when I try hooking it up to the new PC it doesn't work at all. Here is what I did:
I took the router cable from the old PC and plugged it into the new one. I opened up internet explorer and typed in the address: http://192.168.0.1/
but all I get is a page not found message. I'm sure I'm missing something simple. Do I need to reset the router? Here are some of the details:
Router: D-Link 624
Old PC = HP Pavillion A450n
New PC: Dell Inspiron 530
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Both PCs are running windows xp. I tried following the original instructions to install the router - unplugging the router and modem, rebooting etc. but that didn't work. When I connected the router to the new pc, the wireless network still worked (could access the internet through the network with a laptop).
