Today I have installed my fresh Netgear router, plus to be more certain it really is the DG834PN model within the Wireless Rangemax series.
It is a good product, with good Wi-Fi help, a comprehensive settings menu along with a cool shape.
But I had the following annoying condition.
I didn’t complete the setup wizard, I went about plus set all settings manually, even before the ADSL connection has been triggered.
So, whenever the ADSL became alive, I got usually associated to the Internet.
And at which time I have been secured from the router’s admin/settings house page.
When I was typing http://192.168.0.1/ found on the browser (Firefox 2.0 or IE7), the page was redirecting to http://www.routerlogin.com that is a domain owned by Netgear.
The answer which was recommended by the Netgear’s help page, was to reset the router to the factory settings.
Anyway I didn’t do which, considering I might lose my settings, as well as the issue can be repeated also.
How did i fix the issue?
I opened the XP hosts file, plus did a guide insert there.
The hosts file is found at: C:WINDOWSsystem32driversetc
The entry was: 192.168.0.1 www.routerlogin.net
We could should flush the DNS records at this point, or restart the computer.
And then utilize the following URL to access the admin page:
Below is another answer to the issue, that is a very straight-forward method to disable the annoying wizard.
Type inside a browser:
Select: Disable Configuration Assistant, plus visit Apply.
You are able to re-enable it by navigating to http://192.168.0.1/CA_HiddenPage.htm (where 192.168.0.1 is a router’s IP address)
