New Wireless connection
Yesterday i brought my wife a Color Nook. I am trying to add it to my wireless but with no luck. I have the SSID name but am not sure if it is the password or another problem that prevents me from connecting. I have a Linksys WRT 160N V2 Router connected to my Power Mac. The only wireless connected is my wife's PC. I know the default gateway ( but each time i enter it my Safari browser comes back saying it cannot open the page. Any Suggestions?

Are you trying to log in to your router's config page? Are you sure it's not

Brian when I go to System Preferences and look under Network it shows the Router as

Also when I look with my wife's wireless PC it shows the same. The problem is opening the page which I cannot do either from my Mac or my wife's PC

Well - for giggles - try - but if that doesn't work - try resetting your router. If you can't login from a hard wired connection - then something's likely amiss with the router.

I did the Giggles routine already but that also did not work.

Thanks for the suggestion

Well, the Linksys support page show the IP address for your router as so Brian is correct. If you can't access it with that address there may be something wrong with the router. Try doing a reset back to factory default. If that doesn't work, you may be needing a new router.
