I enabled wifi multimedia for my phone and now can’t access router settings - D-link 825ACG1

0 votes
I was connected to my router via its ip address, when on the home page I taped 'Multimedia devices'. On this page I taped on advanced settings then selected  2.4 and 5 ghz connections and made them wan instead of lan. I then tapped apply, now I still have internet (Im using it to write this) but now I cant access the router settings via the ip it just says & safari cannot open the page because it could not connect to the server

any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

Hi 8-bit:)

I trust you are well,

Activating both 2.4ghz and 5ghz for multimedia should not block you from accessing the Routers IP.

  1. access the router via LAN and that should give you access and check what the correct IP to use, make sure its not set to Bridge mode.
  2. Reset the Router and use default IP, reconfigure with desired settings.
