Linksys® Router IP Address Not Working
Linksys is an advanced router ideal for home and office use. IP address means that the Internet Protocol Address and this would be used by the systems to identify them and to communicate with other systems present in network. The IP address conflict would occur when the there are two systems on the LAN having the same IP address. As a result, either any one or both would be unusable for operations in the network. This would occur for many situations such as, when the system administrator assigns two systems in the network, the exact same IP address. If the administrators would connect two ports in the router to each other, that would also cause the IP address conflicts. Some of the reasons due to which Internet protocol may not work with Linksys router are faulty IP configuration, temporary issues in the router and outdated router firmware.
- Find the default IP address
- Reset the router
- Update router firmware
Find the default IP address
Each of the routers will have a default IP address assigned by the manufacturer. If you want to know this IP address, you could either search in the manufacturer’s website or could access the technical support of the manufacturer. It is also possible to get the default IP address of the system by typing the 'ipconfig' in the command prompt.
