I have a fairly new Asus RT-AC68U which I currently use, and an older D-Link DIR-825 which isn't being used. Turns out I need to use the D-Link.
I unplug the Asus and plug in the D-Link into my PC. I got to 192.168.1.1, and see the following:
Settings have been updated. Web page will now refresh.
Changes have been made to the IP address or port number. You will now be disconnected from RT-AC68U.
To access the settings of RT-AC68U, reconnect to the wireless network and use the updated IP address and port number.
What? I am not logged into the Asus router. Maybe it is cached in the browser. Do a hard reset on Chrome, but still there. Maybe I have some special built in wireless in my desktop. Unplug the router, but still there. What can possible cause this?
Then I do some searching and find D-Link typically uses 192.168.0.1. Try it again, but just get the blank "There is no Internet connection". When I try running Windows Network Diagnostics, it says an Ethernet is not connected, but I clearly see that there is.
Guess my issues can be one of the following:
- The Asus router still has some strange control over my PC even though it is unplugged.
- I shouldn't be using 192.168.0.1 but something else.
- D-Link is dead.
- Maybe I am using a CAT6 cable, but the DL-825 uses CAT5.
