      How do I check my IP address and will it change ?

      Can I change my IP address as I had security issues ?

      and why does http://192.168.0.1 no longer work or allow my password. I recently changed my password but it does not allow my new password to open. I am not sure what the Http address is for but found it was useful for something on another forum. I have not yet figured it all out.

      thanks.

      You can sometimes change your IP address by rebooting or power cycling the router.

      Try resetting the router by pushing a pin into the reset button for about 10 secs. This should get you into the settings using the default admin/sky. Remember that both are case sensitive.

      Thanks. I have re-set the router with a pen tip but am not sure what you mean. How do I get into the settings using the default admin/skyyou talk about ?- is this related to the http://192.168.0.1 thing ?

      Thanks. I used whatismyipaddress.com and my IP address is the same according to it.

      You should be able to log in using

      http://192.168.0.1

      and then

      admin (username)
      sky (password)

      No

      The username is admin and the password is sky

      Make sure you reset it for at least 10 seconds or so.

      If a simple reboot does not change the address you could try switching the router off for at least 40 mins.

      If you still can't get in after a reset, try using another browser(Firefox,IE Chrome etc., for some reason this sometimes works.

      Alpine, turn your router off before going to bed, turn on in the morning

      Works every time for me (thats if I need a new IP due to testing)

      IP's apparently automatically 'recycle' every 3 months

      I would prefer a static IP as I use VNC App to view my laptop from my iPhone; therefore I just make a note in my outlook calendar to check my IP every 3 months (whatsmyip) or so
