Preferred Solution: Open settings page of any ROUTER

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a Dell desktop running win 7 sp1 64 bit and i have a modem called a smart RG , my router is a Asus RT N10 .

I am confused about the dynamic IP choice as seen in the screenshot and all the options on the left . Wan,Wireless, Lan etc... what exactly do i need to click on to get this thing to work ?

I currently have my ethernet cable from the computer connected to the routers lan port , i have another ethernet cable connected to the wan port on the router and that goes into the modems lan port , the telephone wire is correctly connected .

It seems when i take the ethernet cable from the computer out of the router i loose wireless which i don't want.

When can this be removed so i can get wireless?
Thanks

Answer:need help with router settings page/have screenshots

Are you sure you have the correct model number for your router? The reason i ask is because when I go to the asus support site and search for the router; it tells me no data is found. Please double check the model number for your router and repost if needed.

Hello,
Not sure if this is the right forum, but I can't seem to access my router
settings page when connected by ethernet (wired) connection. I can access
wirelessly from my cell phone though. It happens with all 3 browsers that I
have, and I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the browsers and it still won't work.
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

I'm using at Linsys WRT54G wireless router.

Recently, my router setting's page has been lagging badly, to the point where I can't change any of the settings. When I ping my router's ip through cmd, it pings at 1 ms but when I try to actually go on the setting's page, it takes a very, very long time. It is like this on every computer on the network.

Anyone know what causes lags in router setting pages and a possible solution? Thanks you for taking your time to read.
 

Answer:Router settings page lagging

I presume you've tried resetting the router? How about resetting it to factory defaults and reconfiguring it?

Hi,

I'm hoping someone will be kind enough to help with a problem. I am connected to my internet network on my PC through an Ethernet cable, but cannot access the internet through a browser or anything else. This is the second time this week this has happened. I had a separate PC issue early this week which caused me to reinstall windows. I have had the issue with connecting to the internet occur twice now since reinstalling windows, both times after installing windows updates. I resolved the first occur acne by having my ISP come out. I do not know what they did to fix the problem, only that the router was not the source, and he changed something while logged into the modem settings. Any help would be appreciated.

Im sure you've all been asked this question before about how to open the NAT settings for Xbox Live. I searched the internet and found thousands of different solutions but none seem to work for me.

I know a bit about networking and the like so i had a little head start but this has really stumped me. I've tried UPnP enabling and setting the Xbox's IP address with DMZ but nothing, ive tried manually entering the ports for forwarding and disbaling UPnP but nothing......

Ive tried disabling the firewall but still nothing. No matter what i try i cannot get the NAT setting to 'open' it is always on 'strict'

Ive phoned my ISP and tried different DNS server addresses but still it says NAT STRICT.

Can any please help, this is driving me mad!!!

My internet connection goes from my router via ethernet and to a switch. This then goes to my PC, my Xbox and my sisters laptop. The switch couldn't be causing a problem could it?

Thanks in advance guys

Hello all, how's it going? I usually fix my own stuff but have to ask some experts here for this one...

I have a WiFi setup where the wifi signal can go to 2 houses on my long-range property. One wifi router (Motorola WR850G w/ newest firmware update) is up on a pole between 2 of the houses. I could access it fine via wifi on my PC ever since i set it up a while back, but I was messing with it one day last week (nothing major changed), and all of a sudden now I cannot access the router setup page no matter what! (IP=192.168.10.1 by default).... it just simply times out now and gives me the 30 seconds loop to a page not displayed error in my browser.

I really would like to reset it via wifi, since its up powered on the pole outside, it'd be a huge pain to get up there and reset it myself....

is there a way I can get access to the page again in any way, by only using wifi from my PC????

The WiFi works great either way, and pinging to the router is 1ms so I just don't get it! Please help

Things I've done:
1. Pinged router, pings fine from any PC via WiFi...
2. Changed PC from DHCP, to 192.168.10.8 to get a non-used IP, since maybe it was timing out to the 192.168.10.7 IP I was using via DHCP. No go, it still times out no matter which PC or IP I have!
 

Answer:Cannot log into router/AP setup page.... page times out, but worked fine for weeks?

Did you change the protocol from http to https by chance, or vise versa ?

I was attempting to port foreward for my PS3, but was having no luck. Long story short, I tried changing the router's IP to see if it would work. Here's where the problem began. I changed it from 192.168.2.1 to 192.168.1.1, which I believe may have made it conflict with my modem. Now I'm stuck not being able to access the internet through the router at all or access the router's configuration to change it back. When I try to access it, I just get a "Page not Found". The computer connected directly to the router is running Windows XP. The Router is a Linksys WRT54GS v. 4.

I've tried disconnecting the internet from the Router to see if it would stop the conflicting problem (if that is indeed the problem), but it didn't work. I've tried setting up many different static IP adresses for the computer connected to the router directly, but it didn't work. I've tried nearly everything, but I just can't get it working.

I'm posting this through a computer connected through a switch to my modem.

Thanks in advance.

i have spent several hours with Lenovo tech supports (all perfectly friendly), trying to fix the issue of the Yoga 2 11 consistently dropping the wifi connection at my workplace.  Two important considerations: * It's not entirely on the Yoga, as it does not have this issue with home wifi, coffee shop wifi, etc. * And several other PC and Mac desktop and laptops have no trouble with the workplace wifi.  The problem is definitely the way that the Yoga interacts with the Airport router. Lenovo tech support has made numerous changes to my drivers, system settings, and so on, but cannot fix the problem. The next solution is to return the Yoga to factory settings -- a solution I'm convinced will not work as I've already returned one laptop to Best Buy for the same problem. In other words, two Yogas, directly out of the box (presumably with factory settings), had this issue. My question is -- is there possibly a way I can change the Airport router settings (or set up a new network entirely) that might be more compatible with the Yoga 2 11 with Intel Wireless-N 7260 card?  If I can't get the Yoga to talk to the router, maybe the router can be changed to talk to the Yoga.

Hi guys, I've had this problem for around 4-5 monthes but have never really gotten around to looking for a solution. Anyways, here is part 1 of my dilema. Lenovo Settings will not open. In fact, it seems to have disappeared completely, along with several "default" apps, such as Paint and Calculator. However, I am able to see them, yet cannot open them directly. View From the Home Button. Oddly enough, I can still open paint, though I have to do so via right clicking on a picture. Clearly they exist, but whenever I click on them and attempt to open them directly, nothing happens. Another issue I have is that the lock screen is stuck on one picture. I cannot change this picture, instead, when I try to change it, the loading wheel spins indefinately like so. If there is any solution to either of these issues please contact me as soon as you can. As you can imagine it's a little bit annoying having battery saver mode stuck on so I can't charge more than 60% for road trips. EDIT: I should also note that this is a Y50-70 I am using

Hi Vonage experts,

A long time ago, someone helped set up my computer network, and now I need to do something, but I don't know how. I know the solution must be extremely simple, but I just don't know what to do.

Basically, I have:

- a computer
- a Vonage modem
- an SMC wireless router
- a cable Internet modem

As I'm writing, I keep going back and forth to look at the set up, to make sure that I'm writing a really accurate description. The way the system is set up is:

1. An ethernet cable connects the cable modem to the Internet port of the Vonage modem

2. An ethernet cable connects the LAN port of the Vonage modem to the "LAN 3" port of the SMC wireless router

3. An ethernet cable connects the "LAN 4" port of the SMC wireless router to my computer

4. A phone cord connects the Phone 1 port of the Vonage modem to my telephone

Note 1: nothing goes to the WAN port of the SMC wireless router.
Note 2: the Vonage modem is set to DHCP
Note 3: the LAN configuration of my computer says "Obtain an IP address automatically" and also "Obtain DNS server address automatically".

I know how to access the Vonage configuration page, which is by going to 192.168.15.1 on my web browser. But that's not what I need.

What I need help with is: now I need to access the SMC wireless router's configuration page, but I am stuck, because:

I often right click in IE (I'm actually using Avant, a kind of IE mask I guess) and select Create Shortcut. It puts a shortcut and my desktop to that page. This mysteriously stopped working. The icon appears on my desktop with the page title and all, but when I double click it, it just opens up my browser and loads about:blank. In the shortcut file's properties, it just says:

Type: Internet Shortcut
Description: (the title of the page)

and then gives me the file's size, location, etc., but it doesn't list the URL anywhere. It's just getting on my nerves having to copy a page's URL to a text file on my desktop if I want to remind myself of something.
 

Answer:Simple but annoying. Web page shortcuts just open a blank IE page.

Sounds like you have been hijacked by about:blank. Go to this website that will help you remove it.

Hello All,

I manage the maintenance on a corporate jet. I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop running Vista. We use Microsoft Word 2007 for our maintenance log book, oldest maintenance entries to newest. I want WORD to open my logbook document on the last page of the document when I fire it up, not the first. Any ideas? My email address is [email protected].

Thanks, Greg Stultz
 

Answer:How can I get Word 2007 to open on the last page of a multi-page document?

The only way I know how to do this is using a macro. Open the document and press ALT + F11 to open the VBA editor. In the project explorer window on the left you will need to right click the object labeled "ThisDocument" and choose "View Code"

Paste the code below into the blank code window and save the document. You will need to adjust the macro security level to medium or low from the main Word window by clicking TOOLS --> MACRO --> SECURITY
Code:
Private Sub Document_Open()

Selection.EndKey Unit:=wdStory

End Sub
You can also accomplish the same action without using a macro by opening the document and clicking CTRL + END to take you to the last page.

Regards,
Rollin

I honestly don't want to mess with the registry like that unless it's safe for me to do so. I don't use IE but instead use Mozilla Firefox. Though I will need access to IE every now and than. & that's why this kind of start page is bothersome.

Hi all!

Ok, here is my problem. Moved into a new place, set up a connection. Server provider gives only one mac address, they set it on my router. They say that it should be working, make a restart and that's it. I did that but still no connection. Moreover, I cannot connect through the router at all and therefore cannot access router admin page to configure it either. Now what to do? Password for the router is correct. Even when I take down all the security, still I cannot connect.

To be more specific, at first I could enter the router admin page, but since I didn't know how to configure it properly, I made some mistake. I think I choose setting "configure wireless network" and changed something there. After that I cannot access the admin page or connect through the router.

At least I asked the provider to set the mac back to the computer, therefore I can write this letter, but I need wireless router to work. Please let me know what can I do, appreciate your help.

Btw. Router model is D-Link Dir-632

I also tried Cmd>ipconfig, it says no connection. But why?

Srivas

The explorer window then continues to constantly connect to errordns.com as if I were clicking Go on the right side of the address bar numerous times and overwhelming internet explorer. I am not able to access anything else which requires an internet connection, such as limewire or my AIM icon. I have attempted to change my homepage address in the internet connections options but the same repeating connection to errordns.com occurs. I do not have an up-to-date antivirus system currently. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!

Hello: I just received some windows updates as well as upgrading to Internet Explorer 7.
Note: I had to remove IE 7 the other day as I was having issues opening certain webpages.

Anyway, IE 7 seems to be navigating fine, other than the fact that when I click on my desktop icon to launch Internet Explorer it opens to a webpage that allows you to Customize Your Settings.

Although, I have www.google.com as my home page within Internet Options (General tab), Google does not open, but rather http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=69157 opens then quickly converts to http://runonce.msn.com/runonce2.aspx which then opens the Customize Your Settings webpage.

I noticed that the default setting in Internet Options is displayed as http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=69157 , so I tried to change that to www.google.com, but it reverts back to http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=69157 .

Any suggestions?

Thanks, Ted569
 

Answer:Home page automatically opens to "Customize Your Settings" page

That is new with IE7.0. You should only have to run through the customization once though. Then click "Go To My Homepage." That should be all. Have you done that yet?

When I open a Facebook page from Thunderbird Mail, some videos have the usual "triangle" to click on (these are OK) and there are other videos that have a "flashing three lines", these I cannot open.
 
The other problem is a black bar at the top of the open Facebook page. Again, this page is opened from Thunderbird Mail. At the top of the black bar the menu bar from Firefox is showing up in grey type color.
 
I hope the above info is enough for one of you guys to put me on the right track to fix these irritating issues.
 
I am running on Win 8.1 on a Dell PC. It is about 18 months old and to date I have had very few problems.
 
As far as I can determine, we had a power failure, the PC shut down (normal) and these issues were observed after bringing the machine back on line. I also had an issue with Adobe Flash in Firefox. However i seem to have corrected that issue.
 
Please help this old bloke from the UK

Answer:Cannot open videos in Facebook and a black bar at the top of the open page

Following a shut down caused by a power outage it is not impossible that some things have got corrupted.
 
I would be inclined to (1) back-up my contacts, then (2) uninstall both Firefox and Thundrbird, then(3) re-install them, followed by re-instating my contact list if necessary.

Question: Home page settings

Hi,I am using IE6. When I switch my computer on, I have it so that 4 ie windows start up automatically. By default they all start up at my home page. Is there a way I can get them to all start up at different websites?

Answer:Home page settings

What about using some sort of batch file or script? IE6 can be started from a command prompt with an IP address or URL, for example "iexplore 192.168.100.1" without the quotes, will open IE6 at that IP address, likewise "iexplore click here" again without the quotes, will open the PC Advisor website.I am sure a script or batch file could be created and run at startup to open four different websites, maybe not very elegant but just a thought.

Depending on the computers amount of ram I usually raise or lower it. Though my main computer has 4gb and I usually just let windows manage it.

Hello,

Windows version is 10.0.15063 build 15063

Since the creators update I noticed that I cannot update any of the apps in the microsoft store. I noticed this finally when an app i actually use wouldn't open, and say that calculator and many others also all had errors and couldn't update or run. I then tried some troubleshooting steps which included

wsreset, reimage repair, sfc /scan now (no errors) and some powershell cleanings of the store. None of these worked. I decided to just rollback to before the creators update but noticed that settings and anything contained within, including windows update, add or remove programs and restore settings will not open either. I tried signing out and signing back into my microsoft account but no joy with that either. I've tried every solution i've come across online so far and no joy. Really thought this would fix it, as this is my exact issue: Windows 10 settings wont open ? [Solved] - Driver Easy but no luck, the tool says issue not found. Please, if anyone can save me from a fresh install that would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Settings wont open, store wont update, reset PC doesn't open either

Hi, if you want to try to 'Restore previous version' (roll back to 1607) you could try via
SHIFT + left click Restart
and navigate through the options.

Go Back to the Previous Version of Windows in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Installation Upgrade Tutorials

As you can see from other threads, others have experienced seemingly intractable problems (e.g. vanishing icons, text...), and ended up doing a clean install.

Note: we strongly recommend the routine use of disk imaging (e.g. Macrium Reflect (free) + its boot disk + external storage for images.
That gives you a relatively quick way to restore your PC to a previously working state without technical help - even if you replace your disk.

If you had used that, and update your image before upgrading, you would have had another option.

The disk image also acts as a full backup.

I have run a malwarebytes scan and nothing was found. Event viewer did show that yesterday my AV program did not start properly first time but that was only yesterday, nothing showed up for the previous days or today. I tried creating a new account thinking that maybe my normal account is becoming corrupted, and then logged in to it - that also was slow as above, but maybe that is because it was a brand new account?

Answer:Long Page Size Settings

Since you didn't specify, i'm going to take a Wild Ass Guess and assuming that you're talking about using MS Word.That also means this should be in the software section of the forum, not here.

Anyway, are you using standard size labels? Somewhere in Word there is a tool for printing on labels. Search the help file for it (i don't have it here otherwise i'd look). You can specify the label type. Usually the Avery type labels have a number/letter code that you can specify in Word and that will take care of it.

I like to open a new window and search something real quick on google (with it big, not using the searchbar in the top right as its tiny up there).

When you open Internet Explorer in a whole other instance, it uses memory that it would otherwise not use had you just opened a "new window".

The XP Photo Viewer never saved pics by minimizing them unless I specifically clicked on the "-".

How can I get rid of this feature?

Hi. I've been experiencing this problem for about a week and a half now, and I've gone on just about every Facebook/computer help forum imaginable, and I still cannot get any answers.

Due to various reasons, I would like to change my Facebook password. However, every time I click on my Account Settings tab, the page itself will not load. It displays a loading icon for about 30 seconds, then the page turns up blank. I have tried accessing this page using two different computers, and three different browsers (Google Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer). I have also tried accessing it through my Android phone, my iPod touch, and my iPad. It will not load on any of these devices/browsers. Everything else on my Facebook will load perfectly fine, including the privacy settings page. It is just the account settings that will not. And it's very frustrating, because even if I wanted to delete my Facebook, I do not have the freedom to do so.

I doubt that this is a computer problem, and I'm assuming it has to do with Facebook. But I will still list my computer details below.
I just don't know what to do, or if I should wait, because if this is an issue due to Facebook, wouldn't they have it resolved by now?

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I really hope that you can help me to determine what is going on.

Answer:My Facebook account settings page will not load? Please help!

You will not find this very encouraging; I've had the same problem for over a year. I cannot get the Accts Settings page to load properly. It seems to load in html, but the hyperlinks either don't work, or they are displayed so far to the right that they are not entirely visible. Worse than that: I contacted FB Help and requested they "permanently delete" my account, not just "deactivate." They emailed me that the deletion was done. That was 12/2010.

In 11/2011 a friend told me: Facebook deletes nothing. Unnerved and curious, I tried logging on my old FB acct. The account still exists. I've emailed FB, but have received no appropriate responses. (They sent me a "welcome back" email. Oy vey.) I hope you find a solution, or if I do, I'll let you know. Your's is the first posting in any online forum I've seen that deals with the Accts Settings page not loading.

HelloI would appreciate if anybody told me what I have to do to set a customized page's width and page's height in Microsoft Word 2003. Whenever I try to change width from the default 14,8 to 15 cm and height from the default 21 cm to 21,1 cm with the A5 page size selected, it ends up not loading the customized size I choose and instead loading the original 14.8 cm width and 21 cm height. Does anyone what might be preventing Word from loading the size and width settings properly?It is very strange because after trying to change the size settings this is what happens:If I click on the tab to check the page's size then I just see the original size settings. Then if I click on the margin's tab and after that I click again on the tab to check the size of the page again, then this last time I will see the settings I chose (15cm and 21,1 cm). This kind of random thing happens but still I think the size settings which word is using are the original size settings.Thankshttp://www.arreglaordenador.comIn-home technical services for computers to individuals and small companies.

Answer:page's size settings word 2003

Hi,It appears that the dialog box that sets page size has some built-in latitude, so that when you set a custom size that is very close to a defined size, it reverts to that defined size.Here is a way to set your custom page size, and from my limited testing, it appears that the document will retain the custom size.Open a new Word document and click Alt + f11 (the alt key and function key No.11 at the same time.)In the visual basic window that opens, look in the Project Viewer pane on the left (If this is not visible, from the Visual Basic window select View - Project Explorer)Find Normal in the Project Explorer and right-click and select Insert ... and select Module (not Class Module)A new module will appear under Modules, beneath Normal. This will likely be named Module1. Double click on it.In the large window on the right paste the following:Sub CustomPage()
With ActiveDocument
.PageSetup.PageHeight = CentimetersToPoints(15)
.PageSetup.PageWidth = CentimetersToPoints(21.1)
End With
End SubSelect File - Save Normal from the visual basic menuUse Alt+f11 to return to the main Word window.Now add a button to a toolbarRight-click any toolbar or the menu bar and select Customize (at the bottom of the list)Select the Commands Tab and on the left side scroll down and select macrosFrom the right side select Normal.Module1.CustomPage and drag it on to a toolbarRight-click this new item and click 'Text only in Menus'This leaves you with an icon on the toolbar.

Answer:Page settings lost in Office 2003

Try renaming normal.dot to abnormal.dot.

Windows will then replace the normal.dot word template and you can reset your settings.

I am running Win 98Se with IE6. I also have spyblaster, ad-aware and spybot loaded. I am able to access the e-bay site and normally see the first few screens of any session. Then (at no page in particular) I try to navigate to a different page (via html link) and I get the usual IE 'Cannot diplay page' etc. If I quit my IE session, relaunch IE and go back to the page then I can view it ....until I then try and navigate to another e-bay screen.My security settings are at 'medium'. I have also set them to 'low' and none of this makes a blind bit of difference.Any ideas/help gratefully received - as i do on fact get value from e-bay (although their help and 'contact us' is absolutely useless!)Thanks

In both my 32 bit and 64 bit version of IE 8 (ver. 8.0.7601.17514)...whenever I close and open the browser the Home Page reverts to about:blank.

Whether I change the home page in an open internet tools session...or close the browser and change via control panel/internet options...upon restart the settings are changed back to home page = about:blank ?

Any ideas on what's doing this and how to reset my home page to the normal page and make it stick ?

Thanks...TRinAZ

Answer:Suddenly losing Home Page settings in IE8

Believe it or not, this may be malware. Try this program, and see if it finds anything:

CWShredder

Also, download both MalwareBytes Free and Superantispyware Free and run them both. This is likely a hijacker, and not simply an IE nuisance.

Is there an internal settings page like chrome://settings/ or chrome://flags/ in Chrome or about:config in Firefox? Its not advertised of course, but it should be there.

Another thing, is it possible to change the default keyboard shortcuts for Tabs switching order? I want to switch Tabs in the most recently used order with Ctr+Tab instead of switching to next or previous, which is stupid. I also want to open a child Tab next to the parent Tab regardless of their positions in Tab sequence. And to switch to the parent Tab or last viewed Tab when a tab is closed.

Any PowerShell or Registry tweaks are available for that? Any browser extensions with such purpose? Namely looking for MS Edge tweaks, since it seems very fast and not a RAM hog. Other browsers have such extensions or internal advanced Tab Control features for a long time.

Here are more Keyboard Shortcuts in Edge.

Silly question really, when i open IE, the page isnt as big as a maximized page so i have to click maximize. Is there a way ti change the settings so when i click on IE the page opens as full size.

Thanks
 

Answer:Change Settings So IE Opens As a Full Page

Hi TurnerUKTA

With one browser open, drag the edges of the browser until it fills the screen.

Close it, then reopen, windows should remember that size when you open it.

Hi,

I just recently got Fibre Internet (upgrade from Cable) and a new Wifi Modem (From ISP).

I am trying to access my Wifi modems settings /gateway page ie 192.168.0.1

I want to change my password etc from the stock one my ISP gave me.

When I type that into my search bar at the top of my search engine (Firefox) I get: The connection was reset?

My internet works perfectly...I can visit websites and download with no issues at a good speed.

I can access my wifi modems settings / gateway page on my tablet and my laptop...just not my main PC.

I have tried Firefox, Google and IE on my PC...none of them work.

The first day I got the Fiber Internet installed I was able to access the wifi modems settings / gateway page on my pc with no problems but no since then.

I am using Win 7

Any Ideas?

I have Chrome for my home page but when i click on the icon i dont always get the page immediately i have to click on the icon to get the page , But if i go to Outlook express it come up straight away is there a way i can make it work on Google chrome Nutty norm

Answer:Chrome home page settings for windows 7

Chrome is a browser not a home page. I think that your probably mean Internet Explorer rather than Outlook Express as Outlook Express is very unlikely to be present on Windows 7.
I guess that you want to set your normal home page on Chrome. In Chrome it is called start up page. Open your usual home page using Chrome. Open settings and then under On start up click on "Set pages" then use current pages.

Hi all, I'm new here and sure could use some help. Somehow I was infected with a nasty virus, but I think I managed to clean it up, or at least I think so. However, now I cannot do many things on my computer. I can't upload files to email, I can't change the wallpaper or screensaver on my computer, I can't open any .exe files, and most programs will not open.

I've tried many internet searches for these problems and tried to run various scans and registry fixes, but nothing seems to work. I'd really rather not use the repair install cd but I'm afraid I might have to.

So, it seems to me that files are corrupted and something is blocking me from using my computer. It is very frustrating and I could sure use your advice. Thank you.

Answer:Can't open most programs, upload files, change settings, or open .exe files

Oh and please don't ask me to download any .exe files, because I can't run them!!
