    Unable to access the router's configuration.


    Normally I would access the router's (it's a Linksys WAG54G) configuration page by going to 192.168.1.1 in a web browser. But since I wired the router up to my Linux laptop (Debian Sarge) I can't get in. When I try, it is the same as typing 127.0.0.1 (local loopback). Why is this, and how can I fix it?

    Edit: Also when it is configured properly, I still can't get on the internet.

    Are you able to ping anything? The router for example?

    What's the content of /etc/network/interfaces?
    What's the content of /etc/resolv.conf?
    Are you using DHCP?
    What's your laptop model?
