Sorry If Common Question. Need to config router. Set up by technician.

For a game I'm playing I need to manually find my Ip number and forwarding port. I don't know if I have a changing or static IP address and where or how to manage this. If I have to pay more for this feature I could end up mildly upset. Typing http://gateway.2wire.net or http://192.168.1.254 leaves my browsers loading for minutes until a error of some sort pops up. 404. Could not find page. Try reloading. Etc. More then anything I need a so called "active port". Thank you for your time and patience and understanding I am much naive and lack technical knowhow of internet and networking knowledge.

Perhaps a private message will do. I wonder why ATT would deny the user privileges to their own router. Maybe because it's still under payment plan?

Perhaps your modem/router needs to be reset to factory settings.  192.168.1.254 is the default IP, and 80 is the default port, but perhaps yours has been changed?

If you have a Windows computer, try openign a DOS box (command Prompt) and typing the command:

     IPCONFIG /ALL

 

If that command works (it should at least up through Windows 7), take a look at the address configured for your "Default Gateway"  That should be set to your Router's IP Address.  As teh others have said, it should be 192.168.1.254 but it may be something different.  I know that my router is set to something different because I already had a home network setup that used a different IP Address for teh router, so my UVerse router was set tot eh same IP Address as my previous router.

 

Once you have the IP Address for your Default Gateway, try using that one in the browser.

IpConfig/All under CMD works and gives me http://192.168.1.254/ as the address.  Typing this into my browser now works when it didn't before. Perhaps someone up the hierarchy made things happen. Thanks. Will post with further info on setting up an open port.
