In fact, you don't need the Linksys software installed on the computer at all.If you use the browser to connect directly to the router's IP address, you should be communicating directly with the router's web interface. This way, you can possibly avoid any issues stemming from Windows having a dialog box problem. (The software may not run properly on 7 at all, or may require Admin privileges to do so.)bear in mind that the username and password are Case Sensitive - you must enter them exactly as they were first set in the router.Failing all this, you can reset everything and create a new username/password. Refer to the documentation for your exact model and firmware revision before doing so. + 0 Votes Not positive but Kenone 4 years ago 192.168.1.1 is not likely to be your ISP's gateway.
