    Default How do I bring up the password screen?

    I need the password screen to set settings on my Linksys router. I can't remember how to bring it up on Windows XP.

    You generally bring up the router IP in your browser and it prompts you for the password to enter setup mode.

    How? I've tried entering 192.16.8.1.1 (The defualt setting) but nothing happens.

    I want to update the firmware with this.

    So I can get X-box live to work again.

    Tried that also. But I just get a Gateway Timeout.

    The user manual says this below but has nothing for Win XP.

    My Linksys is displayed in "My Network Places" as NR041. Clicking on that automatically brings up the router settings.

    Mine just brings up my network drives in WinXP.

    I wonder if I need to reset my router in order to access the software????? That'll knock down my internet connection though.

    How about running the installation CD again? Could be one of those freaky M$ Windows things.
    I know that I didn't do anything special or different for mine to show up like it does,

    I tried that but the installation CD states that I have a router connected and that I must disconnect it and run my line direct to my P.C.. Well, when I do that the Linksys software cannot tell I have an internet connection at all, even though I acually do. Stupid frickin software! Linksys is so out of date that they don't provide Windows XP instructions for their new routers:(. Man, after X-mas I think I'm ditching this thing and getting something else. I'd like to try the new firmware first though but I hate to get on the phone and wait 2 hours for someone to answer at Linksys like I've done in the past. (Eeek!)

    UPDATE: I got it! Called Linksys (Luckily only a 20 minute wait) and they took me though steps not described in the instructions to get the software to work. I upgraded the firmware and now X-box live works :) also that little speed boost file seems to make a difference. I wonder why Lyksys doesn't sponsor it....
