I have two routers, one ADSL router(A) which is connected to the phone line another wireless router(B) connected to this ADSL router. I connect my PC, laptop, mobiles to router B . like this: [ image from pcwintech.com ]

enter image description here

I can login [ admin panel ] to router B by accessing , and earlier I could login to router A as well by accessing . But one day I logged in to router A and changed this to bridge mode and changed the settings in router B to use PPPoE . I can connect to internet using router B, but somehow I can't login to router A anymore. ( infact I can't even ping ).

I want to change my router A from bridge mode to normal one. How can I do that when I can't even login to this router. Moreover if I connect laptop directly to router A even then nothing happens neither I can connect to router nor I can access the internet.

Router B: Netgear WNR1000v2 Router A: TKD 318-EUI [ I got this router from ISP ]

enter image description here

Please let me know if any other information is required as well.

You'll have to reset the router following the manufacturer's directions. It usually involves removing power, holding down the reset button, and then applying power. You cannot log in to a bridge because it has no address.

However, if you do want to use two routers for some reason, you should set one of them to bridging mode. Why do you want to change?

Earlier none of my router were in bridge mode and I was able to access internet too. I got to know that if you have to do port forwarding and you have two routers then one router needs to be in BRIDGE mode. No idea how true is that. But anyways now I just want to revert back to that earlier setting means No bridge mode. –  Rakesh Juyal Aug 15 '12 at 13:07
