    Can my Linksys Router block access to my network


    Click image for larger versionSince I changed the security parameters to my Linksys Wireless Router so my grandson could log in while visiting me on his laptop. I can't seem to be able to access my other computer on my home network. Enclosed is an "ipconfig/all" screenshot to help you understand my problem. I need to access my printer on my other printer which I was able to do prior to playing around with my router. All the diagnostics say more or less the same thing. They can "see" the computer but it isn't responding......

    Anyway, please help me.

    Thank you,

    The only real problem I'm seeing with the ipconfig is that the DNS is showing up as a LAN IP address in the 192.168.x.x. range rather than an actual DNS server IP. I'm not sure why this invalid DNS is showing up but it's not right.

    If you think the router is somehow blocking anything then resetting the router should clear that up.

    My router is connected to my ISP's URL. It then translates the IP addresses in 192.168.1.100 and 192.168.1.101 for my two computers on my home network. Everything was O.K. until I went in and tried to give access to my grandson. I wish I had never done that. How can I reset my router?

    Your ISP's URL? What the heck are you talking about, Is that why I'm seeing a DNS from another network? It sounds like the connection is coming through a VPN from the ISP which is strange.
