      No internet, no access to router configuration setting

      My 'dear' son has been trying to connect his xbox to his laptop and in so doing has last the bb access for us all. He says his instructions told him to change the router ip address to 192.168.1.1 and he has also unchecked dchp. Now he has done this I cannot access the router stats on either the default url or the one above. When I try to connect to sky under wirelessnetwork connection it says it is connected but also that it is an unidentified network and no internet access.

      I cannot connect any of the household computers or my smartphone.

      I have turned the router off then on, I have pressed the little reset button then switched it on and I have switched it on whilst pressing the reset button, hoping it would reset everything back to default, but to no avail.
      Now I have no idea what to try. He's obviously done something to the router software but I can't get in to reset it.
      !Help!

      With the router turned on, hold down the reset button for 10 seconds until the light flashes, that should do it.

      You're a star, thanks so much. Now off to investigate ways to connect his xbox to xbox live without interfering with my connection settings. (Oh, and I'm just about to change the password so he can't get into the router setttings again|)

      It's very simple really, you just connect it by an ethernet cable to one of the ports on the router and then it should just work straight off. Providing UpNP is enabled in your router settings the NAT type should be "Open" automatically.

      Re: No internet, no access to router configuration setting

      I think your son may be trying to connect to the internet through his laptop so he can use its wireless connection. If so he will have to bridge the connection, how you do this depends on the OS being used. Basically, connect the Xbox to the laptop with an ethernet cable. Go to the Network Connections and highlight both the wireless and LAN connections. Right click on them and select Bridge Connections. Follow the instructions from there.

      Unless there is a very good wireless connection, this does not work too well. Better buy him a pair of Homeplugs for Xmas. You then have the advantage of being able to pull the plug out when you want him in bed.

      Many thanks for this, I shall look into this. Could make the gaming curfew easier to impose, I might even be able to get him to have enough sleep to be able to get up for college without me having to drag him from his bed, cheers.
