Why can’t I connect to 192.168.2.1?
This problem could be complicated if you don’t know how to check your computer’s IP settings. If you can’t link to 192.168.2.1, first you need to try connecting to it both with your computer and mobile phone, or another computer. If they don’t work, there must be something wrong with your router, or the default gateway address is wrong. You may changed it to other address like 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.2. By resetting the router, it can bring the default IP address back.
If one of your device connects to the router successfully, it means the router is working good, the problem lies in the network settings. Some of your computer aren’t compatible with router’s network, or they are in different network groups. Try to run the command ‘ipconfig /all’ to see where the problem is.
