here is the actual text of the email from Linksys:
Thank you for contacting Linksys Technical Support.
The SD205 is just a 5-port 10/100 switch. It is not a router. The switch would just be a passthrough connection. It does not require any further configurations. It supposed to be plug and play. The “192.168.1.1” IP address is only applicable for broadband routers. This is the reason why you are unable to access the page. If you are unable to play Starcraft online game, more likely the ports required for the game is not yet opened. Just to further isolate the problem, try to bypass the switch. If you are still having difficulty playing online game, try to contact your Internet Service Provider to ensure that the port numbers required by the game are opened.
Here is the text of the email from D-Link, the modem manufacturers:
Please check/try the following.
Step 1. Verify physical connectivity by checking for solid link lights on the Ethernet ports of the device. If you do not get a solid link light, try using a different cable or connect to a different port on the device if possible. If the computer is turned off, the link light may not be on. Status light should be flashing. If you are using USB connection please check if the driver has been loaded correctly in Device Manager.
Step 2. Disable any internet security software running on the computer. Software firewalls like Zone Alarm, Black Ice, Sygate, Norton Personal Firewall, etc. might block access to the configuration pages. Check the help files included with your firewall software for more information on disabling or configuring it.
Step 3. Configure you Internet settings. Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel. Double click the Internet Options Icon. From the Security tab, click the button to restore the settings to their defaults. Click to the Connection tab and set the dial-up option to Never Dial a Connection. Click the LAN Settings button. Nothing should be checked. Click OK. Go to the Advanced tab and click the button to restore these settings to their defaults. Click OK out to the desktop and close any open windows.
Step 4. Check your IP address. Your computer must have an IP address in the same range of the device you are attempting to configure. Default IP address of the modem is 10.1.1.1 (USB connection is 10.1.1.2).
Step 5. Access the web management. Open your web browser and enter the IP address of your D-Link modem in the address bar. This should open the login page for your the web management. Use the instructions provided with your product to login and complete the configuration.
If you still can not log into the modem you may need to reset it to defaults by pressing the reset button three times in sequence.
The only thing I have not done is press the reset button 3 times..cant find any reset button
I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.
