1st router.

I can't connect to my wireless router setting page at 192.168.1.1. in chrome it says "ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED". I didn't have this problem before. this happens to another router too. I'm using a wireless network adapter for wireless connection. I changed my MAC address, used this command: NETSH WINSOCK RESET , restarted PC, refreshed everything using IE settings.

2nd router

There is another router for my friend that gave me it's password and I used to connect to it successfully but now i can't. I tried everything i could but none of them worked. I'm using Windows 8.1 and the error i get when trying to connect to that router is this: "Can't connect to this network". on this network my friend set up a QOS and set a static Internal IP for my MAC address. I don't know what's wrong with my computer. I also haven't Installed any Windows updates recently.

  • try connecting over ethernet. Some routers don't allow logging to the setup over wifi. – Tetsujin Jul 1 '15 at 10:46
  • You're right, but unfortunately that's not an option for my situation. the weird thing is that when i enter the router public IP on the browser i can log into the settings page. – Stephan Jul 1 '15 at 10:50
  • That's a security issue, for sure. – Tetsujin Jul 1 '15 at 10:56

    I'm confused: the first sentence of your question says you can't connect to your router settings page, while your last comment says you can. So what is the problem? – AFH Jul 1 '15 at 11:09
  • @AFH 1st and 2nd questions refer to 2 different routers. In 1st question, I can only connect to my router settings page through Internet. in 2nd question, I can't connect to the router itself, let alone accessing its settings page. – Stephan Jul 1 '15 at 11:53

1st.

the problem is OS related. It's only my computer that refuses to connect to the router settings, other computers can successfully connect to 192.168.1.1.

2nd.

I found what the problem was, the way router was responding to my connection request even with different devices was weird so that's how i found it. It was about Wireless MAC filtering which gives the router the ability to allow only wireless devices with specific MAC address to connect to it. my friend also confirmed it.

Check whether your VMware Network Adapter is Disabled or not. It may use the dhcp ip-address having range 192.168.0.0/24. Disable it.
