Cannot connect to Router's default IP

Cannot connect to Router's default IP

Cannot connect to Router's default IP

I know next to nothing about networking, but I've done a little research and spent a lot of time trying to resolve my problem.  I cannot connect to my linksys BEFSR41 V.2 router's default ip address of  However, after setting a static ip on my computer and xbox, I can connect to it, stream and transfer files, etc.  But it's getting really annoying to disconnect my cable modem, connect to the router, change my ip address, and then not have access to the internet.  I'm not running a firewall, and here's what the ipconfig says when connected only to the router:

        Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes
        Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes
        Autoconfiguration IP Address. . . :
        Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . :
        Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :

I'm pretty sure that if I can connect to the router and upgrade the firmware, that I can get everything else, but I gotta find the address first.  Is there a program that can do that for me?  I really would appreciate the help, so thanks in advance.

RE: Cannot connect to Router's default IP

Nevermind, I reset it and got everything working fine!!!!!  Exciting, and fun that I did it myself!
