If it is not there, that would explain why we can't get in. ;-)

Try the troubleshooter in Network and Sharing center.

And I've been using this IP ever since.

Only when I installed Win7, I found myself unable to use this IP

Typing, as suggested, redirects to and a page with a huge msg It Works! in bold letters, and nothing else.

Booting from WinXP I can enter the modem, using, as expected
And as I posted earlier directly from the support page of your router, the firmware update messed things up and you need to follow the directions in the second part of the post. Hint> reload the firmware or try a different version of the firmware. Use the link I posted in my first post then get the latest firmware version and reinstall it.

Win7 x64 Ultimate

Casca: Tried Troubleshooter, but it did not find anything wrong, for there is nothing wrong with the network, I'm connected.

chev65: Firmware update did NOT messed things, I'm connected. The Modem is running flawlessly, since jul/2009, with full setup access thru WinXP. No need to reinstall the firmware. Is Win7 related

The only mysterious trouble is Win7 entering the Modem Setup with it's current IP ( Could it be something related to Win7 'IP range', or Firewall settings, or...

Could this '401' error hint something? (Actually, I'm not in Kansas -- inside the Modem's setup -- I was denied entry at the 'south border migra', in spite of my valid passport, OK when entering thru Canada ;-)

Still baffled,

And NO 'Residential Gateway' on WinXP either.

(But this Gateway absence never prevented me to enter the Modem Setup, using WinXP)
