Has there been a change to router setting access, ie 192.168.0.1 or 0.1?

Each computer on your network gets allocated an IP dynamically when it boots up. This IP is supplied by the router so the one that changed is normal as it is likely to change at any new boot up. The only one that should not change is the Gateway which you now know is 192.168.1.1. Looking back you said in your initial post that you were using 192.168.0.1 which is different to the correct one. I would again just check that it has not been entered incorrectly when using IE. also I would use a command prompt and ping 192.168.1.1 and see if it returns any suspicious details.

Well, I don't know, it works okay for me in IE8 on this XP pc. (as well as in FF and all other pcs and tablet browser)

Now you've got the Router homepage, be careful what you alter in there.... and make a note of present settings so you can always put them back in should need arise.
