    Unhappy Help! Problems with Linksys WRT54G router
    Hi,

    Got an iMac 3 weeks ago (made the switch from my Windows pc when it finally died) and I'm quite happy I did.

    Yesterday, we bought an XP based machine for my g/f (she doesn't like the iMac and we like having our own puters) along with a Linsys WRT54G router and a wireless adapter for her PC which is in the bedroom.

    I installed the router and hard-wired the iMac to the router but I can't get the setup (192.168.0.1) to appear using Safari, I get "Safari could not open the page “http://192.168.0.1/” because the server stopped responding".

    So, what do I do now? Why can't I access the setup page from my iMac? Should I install the adapter on the XP computer and do the setup (wirelessly) from there? BTW, we got ADSL...

    Also, the router has a built-in firewall, should I turn OS X's firewall off?

    Thanks,
    Gemigene

    I have the same router. Supposedly all you need to do is iMAc--->router--> dsl/cable modem. should be a reset button on the back. says hold it down for 10 seconds if you mess up the config. the page you want to get to should be address for http://192.168.1.1 . use IE or safari and you should be able to get to that page. all you're doing is making a connection to your router so you can tell it what to do. after that, basic setup includes setting it to....PPP i guess and putting in your userid and password as provided by your isp.

    however. if you iMac has an airport card you may want to try the same process on your gf's pc. for some reason its easier that way. again, you don't need to use the setup disk that came with the router. and....make sure all your cables fit tight and snug. try rebooting as well.

    Unable to connect to server
    I am having the same problem you encountered in 2006. What finally worked for you? I've tried using Google Chrome, Firefox and Camino. I don't know what else to do. Please help!

    Here is my error message using the Linksys WRT54GX4 firmware, Mac OS 10.5.8:

    Safari can’t open the page “http://192.168.1.1/” because Safari can’t connect to the server “192.168.1.1”.

    Your router's address can vary. Go to Network Preferences, Advanced, and then click on the TCP/IP tab. There you should see your router's address.
