Connection Refused When Trying to Setup Wierless Router
A Ligthning strike killed my Linksys wireless router. I have replaced
it and wavemon shows good signal strength at my computer but no link.
Presumably the problem is just in the setup but I cannot access the
setup. This computer (my daughter's) is connected to the router by an
ethernet card and can reach the web. When I try to access the router
setup at 192.168.2.1 I get a message that the connection was refused.
This worked yesterday so I believe the problem is with a file
permission. Searching the log files I find the message:
Tiger gconfd (emily-1192): Resolvcd address
"xml:readonly::/etc/gconf/gconf_xml_defaulsts" to a read-only config
source at position 2
I have changed the permissions of the files in /etc/gconf to 664 but
this does not solve the problem. I have tried running strace -f
-o/tmp/tfile mozilla followed by less /etc/tfile | grep -n 192.168.2.1.
This finds a line containing this number at about line number 22350 but
I can't find the problem in the following lines.
The kernel is 2.4.22 and the browser is Mozilla 1.5-3 running in xdm and
If anyone can help please send suggestions to email@example.com as I
cannot access the list until this problem is solved.
