    I cant find the USB drive with my wireless network information, and the Linksys EasyLink doesnt want to work with Windows 7, so I am somewhat at a loss. I can't even open 192.168.1.1
    Any ideas
    Thanks John

    Do you have any working PCs on your network?
    If so then can you check the output of IPCONFIG /ALL and tell us what they show for Default Gateway and DHCP Server.

    Can you PING 192.168.1.1?
    Are you saying that you don't get the router logon screen up at all?

    Try powering off the router/gateway, waiting for 30 seconds and then powering it on again.
    Then see if you can access it with at least two different browsers (in case you have a browser configuration problem)

    Make sure you have a copy of the user guide first, so you can look up the default password and how to reconfigure the router.
