    No gateway default on router, cant setup


    Hey guys, I recently moved to a new home and I'm trying to set up my router to the new internet connection and get the wifi going but for the life of me I cant get it set up. The internet connection itself is fine, from modem to pc.
    Once I have the modem in the mix,it gets no/limited connectivity and cannot reach the setups. I have tried the classic 192.168.2.1 and 192.168.1.1 and about 5 other variations, along with 'http://router'. My router is a Belkin N300 Wireless N Router.
    If I use a command prompt and do 'ipconfig', there is no ip address beside 'gateway default' once the router is connected. I have reset my router to factory settings. I've tried using a static ip address for my computer [though not sure if i did it correctly]. My DHCP is enabled.
    I've been at it for several hours and I'm sorta at my wit's end. Please help!

    For Belkin, How about trying: http://192.168.2.1
    and do not set any static IP.

    I have tried that, along with other variations of it. Because none of them would work is why I ended up resorting to attempting a static IP

    It is working now. I just kept power-cycling. Weird.

    Yep, routers do that sometimes. Glad you sorted it out.
