im trying to add security to my router and i put the 192.168.1.1 into the web bar and it times out everytime

Maybe try resetting the router to factory default?

I'm not sure, but it may require holding down the reset button (on the back panel most likely) for 30 seconds, then releasing the button, wait until it finishes its reboot, then try again...

The above advice is sage, but what is the model number?

Just out of curiosity.

Have you tried 192.168.2.1?

If you can drop to DOS, try "Tracert yahoo.com".
The first response should be your gateway - i.e., your router.

You need to look at your internet settings.  In the Windows, click on the start menu, click on run and type "CMD" (without quotes).  In the dos prompt that comes up, type "ipconfig" and press enter.  It will show you your ip address, subnet mask and gateway.  Gateway is the address of your router, which is what you need to type in your browser to get to the router.








In Windows 7 or Vista, instead of clicking on run type CMD into the search menu right above the start menu.

Or do a ipconfig, also from the command prompt.

It will return the gateway as one of the settings.


ETA - as the guy one up from me also said, I see now.
