I have a D-Link router. I want to connect to the settings menu (using
192.168.1.1) in order to do things like port forwarding. I am unable to connect to this address while using Ethernet (Chrome just tries to load the page forever and nothing happens), but when connecting through WiFi I can load the page. Why might this be happening? I'm using Windows 10.
Update: Tried again with Edge and IE. Same result, page just hangs and doesn't load; I don't even get the sign-in prompt.
Update 2: Used the commands
ipconfig /renew and
ipconfig /flushdns. Page now doesn't load at all; Chrome just says
The 192.168.1.1 page isn't working.
192.168.1.1didn't send any data.
Update 3: Doesn't even work with WiFi now. I changed nothing.
Update 4: After reading some stuff about Java and how Chrome no longer supports Java plugins (or something) I decided to try updating to the latest version of Java. Internet Explorer now says
This page can't be displayed
and Chrome says
The 192.168.1.1 page isn't working. 192.168.1.1 didn't send any data.
Update 5: Talked to a TalkTalk agent about the problem, no change unfortunately. My router is a D-Link DSL-3680
