I think you are using you WiFi on you laptop to get on line. Is that correct? You said you went to the other room and it worked so I assume you are using WiFi. To use the router address you need to be running through the lan cable connected to the router. Please advice.

We are not talking about the AC power , that has nothing to do with what we are trying to accomplish here.

Go to your desktop and type 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.1 into your address bar.
