Hello, and a nice Midnights welcome to you.


Please describe your Windows 8 computer problem (in this area) or, if there is no computer problem, scroll down and just visit General Chat or other sections of the forum.


If you have another Operating System (Windows 7 / Vista / XP) please post your problem in those areas -


Thank You .........

Hello grandmalisa50.

Try this with Internet Explorer first.

Go to - Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network Connections (this may depend on your model / version of Windows 8)
Once you’re in that menu, right-click on your network adapter > Status > Details.

In the details menu, you should see your default gateway listed.
Now that you know your router’s IP address, type it into a browser to get to the configuration menu.

Your router should prompt you for a password.  If you’ve previously configured a password for your router, enter it and click OK.  If not, then it should still be at the default value. 

Linksys and a lot of other routers use a blank username and the password “admin” for authentication.  If that doesn’t work, consult your router manual for the default password.


Also just try to Unplug your router for 30 seconds, then plug it back in and wait for a few moments.

Generally, if this fails, you need to contact your Internet Service Provider to help with your router model.

Worth a try -  B)


EDIT - P.S. In the future, please start a New Topic, rather than using another persons topic, (Not serious :) ).
