    Default BSNL and wifi router

    hello guys till yesterday i was using the default dareglobal bsnl modem through bridged mode.. today my cousin gave me a speedtouch 585 v6 wifi modem.. the thing is i cannot access the speedtouch router's setup page.. i setup my win xp ip and all to dhcp (automatically acquire ip address).. and i restarted.i connected the router through ethernet port.. but when i type speedtouch.lan in firefox it says cannot access.. so what should i do guys.. did i forget to do anything...

    3. Open a web browser (Internet Explorer 6/7) and enter in the URL bar http://192.168.1.254 and press enter.
    The router's home page will appear asking for Username and password, the Factory default username is Administrator (note capital A) and password admin. You may also find that admin/admin works if an additional user has been setup.............
    ...............
    Para two:

    Google search:speedtouch 585 v6 wifi modem

    Next in the browsers address field (top left) type into the address field http://speedtouch.lan or the IP address 192.168.0.1

    This should connect you into the routers set up configuration pages, but any changes you make here should be saved before you exit the router itself, some routers auto-save the changes (config) cannot remember which way the speedtouch does it.

    Hmm thanks for the speedy reply essbebe.. but as i said when i set the lan card tcp/ip properties to "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "obtain DNS Server address automatically" and after sometime when i typed ipconfig in command prompt this is what i got

    autoconfiguration ipv4 address :169.254.142.34
    subnet mask :255.255.255.0
    default gateway :

    yeah no default gateway.. according to the guide it must automatically become 192.168.1.254.. is there something wrong with the router..?? i tried reseting it and after that also this is what i get..

    If unit is new ID is Administrator and
    Password ( no entry ) Blank. ( hurried study of Manual )
    enter 192.168.1.1 or `198.168.0.1 in TCP/IP properties page. then try in IE

    Ip address 192.168.1.10
    subnet 255.255.255.0
    Default : 192.168.1.1
    DNS : 208.67.220.220 208.67.222.222
    Apply save

    With power on press the RESET button, for about
    30 or 40 seconds.
    Observe any change in the LED lights.
    Then try /enter default gateway.192.168.1.254.
    Try LAN mode first.
    When Initially setting a modem ,
    it is advisable to enter the IP
    address for computer and modem . in TCP/IP
    properties page.

    Or try this.
    Use the Dare Global modem.
    Confirm you get connected to Internet.
    Then connect the RJ45 to LAN1 port speed touch router. Another Rj45 from LAN2 to computer.

    What error message you get ?
