Accessing router remotely

Hi.

I have a WRT54G2 version 1 router. I want to access it via internet remotely. I have a static IP and I enabled Remote Management option. I tried to access it from outside my home network entering my router static IP followed by :8080 in web browser. The username and password window appeared. After entering the right username and pass I just get a blank page. Nothing happens.

I would appreciate any suggestion.

Thank you!

Re: Accessing router remotely

You can try to upgrade the firmware of this wireless router if possible, after that try again.

 

However I would advise you to disable this feature, so that to minimize the risk of having others to try hacking it from Internet.

 

Hope this helps.

Re: Accessing router remotely

Hi.

Thank you for your advise. I resolved the problem. I had to wait for 2-3 minutes for the router configuration interface to show. (due to low internet speed I guess)
