View Full Version : [ubuntu] Linksys WAG200G Router Page wont open on Ubuntu

August 8th, 2008, 12:38 PM
I am using Ubuntu Hardy since a month now, and even though the Wireless internet works perfectly, I am unable to access the router page @ for configuration

I can ping at, access the internet, connect to network computers over the same wireless but nothing else.

The problem is also that the router can otherwise be accessed and configured using Firefox on Windows Vista, or even a LiveCD of OpenSUSE 11, so the error being in Firefox is ruled out.

I've tried with Firefox and Opera on the Ubuntu 8.04 that i'm currently using, but of no use.

After accessing, and entering the username and password, the address bar shows the following page, but it only keeps loading forever with a blank screen.

What could be the solution?? its really irritating..

I have the same problem with a Netgear RP614 router, it seems to have a problem with Firefox. I had to dual boot to Windows to szet it up.

Can anyone please look into it and find a solution.. Its really a wierd problem.

Can other Linksys WAG200G users access the config normally ???

I have the same problem with a wag200g, This is on a mac-mini running ubuntu, with firefox.

If I reboot into macos10.4 and use safari then all is well.

I've reflashed the modem to the 1.06 software. No change.

Any ideas anyone?

I have a Dlink router and have also used Billion router.

They both can access the config page for the routers so its not a Linux issue.

I know that you CAN change the default page for the settings. Someone May have changed the settings to use a different port instead of port 80 for the settings.

Can you connect to it under Windows (of any type)?
