I have had a WRT54G router for several years. We have about three computers that use it, on an Open WEP system. No problems with the wireless.
However, I cannot seem to login into it, with either a wired or wireless connection, of any of three computers or a new one I got. I have tried 192.168.1.1. I checked my ipconfig, and it says my default gateway is 192.168.1.1 and my IP address is 192.168.1.126, but that did not work either.
I am hesitant to reset the router - because if I do, and lose access for my other computers, I'm in bigger trouble.
Our Internet is through Comcast.
The reason I want to get in is that we got a new computer. I can't seem to set it up unless I make the SSID visible, which I can't do, without logging in.

What happens if you type in http://192.168.1.1 in your browser? Do you get prompted for a username/password? Do you get a response if you run ping 192.168.1.1?

Until a few minutes ago, if I typed in that address, it would just act like a website it could not find. However, ping-ing returned 4 replies.
But good news.
First, this morning, I powered down the modem and router, and then slowly restarted them. Forgot about checking for the address.
Later, I figured out why i could not connect Internet on my new computer - the wireless switch was off. Once I got it started, I tried and it COULD get to that address. I went back to my old computer, and tada, I could get to 192.168.1.1
So I don't know why ping-ing worked yesterday, but the weblink did not. But now, everything is working well!
