Windows 7: Cannot see routers homepage.

Cannot see routers homepage.

Hi all,
I am hoping someone maybe able to help me with the following;
I dual boot XP and W7 (X64), I use a Linksys router which I connect to using a Linksys USB adaptor. On the XP OS I can see the routers homepage using IE, Firefox or Chrome. On the Windows & X64 boot I cannot see the homepage using any of the browsers.

I type in the router address, login and then the page is just blank, it is as though it connects but just won't show the page.

I cannot wire up the PC as I don't have a CAT5 long enough! I can use the XP boot or my laptop to connect and change settings, it would just be nice to use the Win 7 OS.

Any ideas would be most welcome.

Cheers,
Woody.

Is this new for the win 7 machine? were you able to do it from win 7 and now you cant? or was it never able to? what does it say in the address bar on top of the browser?

Hi Ken,
I have never been able to see it from the Win 7 machine.

This is the address bar;
http://192.168.1.1/setup.cgi?next_file=Setup.htm

Have you reset your router to its default settings and then try logging on its homepage?

Hi Tews,
I haven't no.

My thinking is that I should be able to see it as I can through other machines - I would think that it would be a router issue if I couldn't see it through any other machine?

Sorry, my bad!
No, I've not rebooted it and I can see websites etc as usual, but I still cannot see the router homepage.

Any ideas how to copy the text from a cmd line?
