Linksys WRT54G - Can't access router's configurations page




Issue


I can't connect to my wireless router's configuration page despite the fact that my internet connection is otherwise working perfectly. The page will only partially load and I can't get past the login screen.

Solution


Some users have come across problems when trying to load the page 192.168.1.1 in order to access the router's configuration page.

The problem is likely due to router firmware issue. Here is what you can do:
  • 1) Go to http://www.linksysbycisco.com/APAC/en/support to search for your router model, and download the latest firmware
  • 2) Go to http://www.idealinternet.co.uk/restore-linksys-firmware.tpl and download the linksys-tftp.exe available on that page
  • 3) Run the linksys-tftp.exe program. Key in the details as below:
    • Server : 192.168.1.1
    • Password : admin
    • File : <look for the firmware file that you had download earlier>
  • 4) Click Upgrade
  • 5) You should be able to see the progress bar that shows upgrading in process and eventually, it will show a message that firmware had been upgraded
  • 6) After that, try going to the page 192.168.1.1 and leave the username blank and key password as admin
  • 7) The page should load properly now
