I am running XP home edition SP2 on a new Dell 5000. I have recently installed this machine.
I moved my ADSL router to this machine and it does everything it supposed to. My problem is I cannot get into the configuration file. Instructions say enter click here in the web browser and a user name and password dialog will come does not...I just get a page not found msg. I can ping and tracert the address no problem..

any ideas..?
