    can't log on to router

    Hi All,

    I have a WRT54G router, and I would like to log on to it, but for some reason, I can't. I can ping the router, and and when I try ssh into it, ssh returns with
    Code:
    ssh: connect to host 192.168.1.125 port 22: Connection refused
    which seems to imply that 192.168.1.125 is a valid address, for 192.168.1.1 returns
    Code:
    ssh: connect to host 192.168.1.1 port 22: no route to host
    But I just can't log on to the router, neither via ssh, not via web. Has anyone got any idea as to what can be wrong?
    Thanks,
    v923z

    Worst case, there's the "reset" button...
    Seems like odd address for router, but it's not cast in stone - so you could use what you want (within limits). Pings work for 192.168.1.125 but not 192.168.1.1?

    Is this running the standard firmware, or something like dd-wrt/tomato/OpenWRT? With the stock linksys firmware, you cannot ssh in.

    In either case, you won't be able to access the web interface over the wireless network (for hopefully obvious security reasons). You'll need to connect to it over wired ethernet.

    Use a browser. Enter 192.168.1.1 in the address bar (I have the same router) Default login -user (blank)-password 'admin'

    It has kamikaze installed on it. I have managed to log on to it, thanks to all for the replies. I think, the problem was that on the computer, I set 192.168.1.125 for the IP address, while the router had 192.168.1.1. After I re-set the address on the computer, it worked all right. However, it still baffles me why I could ping 192.168.1.125, if the router address was 192.168.1.1. Most weird.
    Thanks again,

    Perhaps you were pinging the computer instead of the router?
