  2. You can also fix the connections by right clicking the network connection icon, which is located on the taskbar and then hitting the button for diagnosing and repairing.

If you still cannot seem to connect to your router, do the following:

  • Open internet explorer by using the following: Options > Advanced tab > click reset, and then follow the given instructions.

Make sure you have no computer viruses and also, clear away any cookies and temporary internet files.


You can try to resolve the issue in this way: on the back side of the router, you can find a small circular reset push button. Find a pen, and sue it to hold the button down for a couple of seconds, and then proceed to unplug the whole lot from the router. After a few seconds, plug it all back in, and wait for the data to come up once more. Then open a new browser, in the empty space type in 192.168.l.l, and put in your password. This should lead you directly to linksys. Read this useful article for more information.


You can try replacing your router in order to find out if you can open the page. If it doesn’t work, and you think it may be the incoming line which is causing the trouble, you can try to disconnect the incoming phone line from the ISP (BSNL) and attempt to open a new 192.168.l.l page.

You may get lucky as this could work!
