Thanks for replying.
Power cycle your network.
R. I did this several times, doesn't work in this situation.
If connecting wirelessly, are you connected to the router,
R. I can't connect to my router/network, but I am connecting to a weaker signal from the AP router/network.
if not, is the wireless network listed?
R. My prior lost network is not listed, but my router name is. But when I try to connect to it, it doesn't work because my prior network has disappeared? In order to connect to my router, I need to open the router settings and reset my router/new network up...again. Which was/is my original question?
If connected w/Ethernet cable
R. Not connected w/Ethernet.
Q. What is the IP address.
R. Not sure what IP address you are looking for? Other than the one I gave in my initial post [192.168.2.1] to get into the router settings as I would normally do. But as stated that doesn't work now and why I asked my initial question?
I first tried it w/o the Ethernet cable, but been awhile since I did this. So I then connected a Ethernet cable to the router/computer, but still doesn't work? I tried the ipconfig /all option and the only IP address I presume you may be looking for is: IPv4 Address 10.0.0.6. Which I entered in the address bar as well, but still doesn't work? But normally 192.168.2.1 is the router access numbers.
There doesn't appear to be any blocks on the AP router I am connecting to.
try your internet browser and see if a web page will load.
R. As stated I lost my network, so I can't connect and load a web page if my network is no longer there. I do have a alternate unsecured open network to connect to although a weaker signal, and the one I am using now.
If you do not get a web page go to the start menu and select the command prompt. When the command window opens type Ipconfig /all and let me know what the IP address is if one is assigned.
R. See above answer.
To be clearer and as stated above, I am using my own router to connect to another AP router/signal. Which I have had no problem with, unless there was a temporary power loss problem, lightening, etc. that caused a temporary disruption of the router/modem config. Which the power cycling you described would work.
But as I stated initially I had to turn my power off at my end [not the AP end] and back on several times to fix a light switch. So this is the only thing that would have disrupted my router settings for my network. But not disrupt the other available [AP] connection I have available.
As a last resort I reset my router by pushing the reset button on the bottom of my router. Then tried re-entering the router IP address of 192.168.2.1 using both the Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, still wont open my router?
So any further advice appreciated.
