    And where did you EVER get the absurd idea that your router IP address is or that your router uses the nonroutable subnet? In fact only the very naive who have absolutely NO comprehension of subnetting would suggest that a router has to have a address or use subnet.

    There is absolutely NO reason to use subnet and there is nothing incorrect about using subnet.

    Someone decided to use the subnet. What is wrong with that?

    Clearly if you are not on the subnet, and the subnet is not linked by router table to your subnet ( pinging it will result in no reply. This is as it should and must be.

    How can we help. There is nothing improper here; nothing wrong; nothing out of sort. There is a user that has no understanding of subnetting however - who thinks there is a problem when there is none - other than a lack of understanding.

    Subnetting is a bit more complicated and cannot be explained in the space allocated to this forum.

    In short, some one changed the default IP address of the Netgear and there is nothign wrong with that. You can change the router's IP address if you like, but to keep the reply short, if you can get on the Internet via the router, then just leave it at and when configuring the router, just go to that address instead of the

    Also, you should be able to reset it to factory default. If I were you, I'd check the router's firmware version and upgrade to the latest one on their web site and then reset the factory default and reconfigure the router.
