I know, I'm a noob and I messed up.
Does anyone know how I can get back onto the wireless router interface and flip the settings back to normal, aside from resetting the router to the manufacturers settings?
Anyone who is familiar with this type of IP (169.254.17.122) or problems accessing the router settings pleeease help!
Thanks in advance.
u most probably disabled the dhcp server on the router and thats y u are getting the 169.x.x.x ip address, this ip address range is a standard ip range always acquired by systems when they are trying to acquire ip from the server and cant.
manually assign an ip in the range of 192.168.2.x to your mac and try logging into the router again to see if u can. if u succeed the go to the lan settings and enable the dhcp server but if u cant then that means u also changed the lan ip of the router and your best bet will be to reset the router to default.
b4 resetting to default, be sure u have all your settings for your internet connection cos once u reset everything goes to status quo.
let me know how it went.
