    This is just a spare I picked up at a garage sale to play with.
    I can access setup wirelessly - and upgraded the firmware succesfully.
    For some reason I cannot ping [] or access the setup screen
    through the wired connection.
    Reset does not help.
    A curiosity, to me.
    What am I missing?
    Thank you.

    Isn't it that you want? Most Linksys default
    locations are.

    Yes, most are but this is really "" as marked on the
    device and how I accessed wirelessly.

    Some possibilities:
    * The wired connection is a WAN port rather than LAN
    * You're using a cross-over cable, and shouldn't be
    * The NIC is bust
    * Firewall prohibits access from the NIC
    * Firmware is the wrong version for the board

    And that's probably when it reverted back to

    Which firmware, anyway? If it's something third-party like OpenWRT, then there
    may be dozens of different reasons you can no longer access it.

    Cable and NIC work fine with a different Linsys router.

    No. Real Linksys firmware. version 1.00.25. does not work and is not the correct IP. Really. The device
    says the IP is and that is the address which works wirelessly.

    I do note that when in the setup page [wireless access] the device IP is
    "blank" but cannot be filed in.

    Perhaps I'll try reinstalling the firmware.

    What browser? I have found that some firmware doesn't play well with
    anything other than IE.

    WindowsXP; IE8.

    PC's NIC and LED on router for the port both light up.

  10. Possibly the DHCP server is disabled on the wired ports.

    Try setting the PC's wired port for a fixed IP like and see
    if that gets you back into the box when you plug into one of the
    router's 4 LAN ports.

    I had forgotten that the PC was set to a static IP: Changed
    to and accessed the router just fine.
    Thank you for the solution.
