I have a router and when I turn the DHCP off I can no longer connect to the configuration page. Is there a reason that I shouldn't be able to connect or is the router broken? If I am doing something wrong then how could I go about fixing it?

Did you configure a static IP address/netmask? If so, also check if it's really on the same subnet as your router –  Ashtray Aug 26 '13 at 7:52
If your connecting device is in the same IP subnet as your router, you should have IP reachability. @Ian Hern, is there something more specific you are trying to ask? –  one.time Aug 26 '13 at 21:21

If you identify/configure the static IP address of your router, you should be able to assign a static IP address to your connecting device within the same subnet and navigate to the WebUI.

If your router is a TP-Link like your tag suggests the default IP may be with a /24 mask.
