Can not access router
I type in the http://192.168.1.1/ and it should give me a page to ask for password and info. you know that page to access the router.
I can not access this page to re-setup my router and i have even disabled the software firewall and AV's.

What router is it? Have you tried resetting the router via the reset button? The access page doesn't work in IE or FF? What is happening when you type in the login address? Have you made hardware changes recently...I'm curious what you mean by "re-setup" your router.

No no no,
I need to access the router to configure the router. That is the address you use to access the router. it won't let me.
reading the online manaul now and i can't get past this point. I need to configure that in order for all the computers to work on the network. right now only this one is working.

Have you installed the router's software via the CD?

Should already be on there, been using this same router for over a year. never had problems till today. Installed a new network card, cd-dvd-rw.
all started cuz i had no network anymore. So ruled that the old network card was bad. Got new one and then got a direct DSL connection. Now i plugged in the router. Router only works to this one computer.
Using static ip address and need to put that info in the router so i can change the configs on the computer(s) so they will all work.
Never uninstalled the router or nothing, been working like a charm till today.

As noted above do a
Get the default gateway, if its 192.168.1.1 (default for linksys) continue on. If its different, use that IP in your browser to admin the router.
If you dont' mind changing a few settings back, you could also hit the hard reset button on the router.
There should be a small pinhole with a button inside on the router (can't remember if its back or front). You can put something in there to hit that button to reset the config back to default.
Do you know anybody with a spare router to help test?
If you're on DSL if you're changing back and forth between hooking up teh DSL modem to the router and the PC, you may need to call the DSL provider to make sure they know which MAC address to provision on their side.
Not required by all companies, but by some.

GREAT NEWS!!!! I am back online and network is all squared away now. Just now finsihed. thanks for the suggestion of digging out the CD again martoch!!!!
Spare router to test? Uh vass, easier for me to just go buy a new one.
I am out of the loop and everyone I know doesn't do computers.
Glad our network is fisnished.
Thank you all so very much.
One other question tho. When i was in the store to get a new network card, howcome most of the stuff is all wireless now? I only had three choices for a wired card. Ended up picking netgear, they didn't have linksys in a wired format. I was befuddled. Is everything going wireless now? Is it more secure now?

Well for home users with laptops and not wanting to run cables wireless is the way to go now. Its the next big thing.
But wireless should never ever replace a wired connection (espically if you need a stable connection)
As for secure if you are running G with WPA you are pretty set.
