When I type my modem configuration page IP in browser instead of showing configuration page it shows default web page for apache.What's wrong?Is there any IP conflict?
Thanks in advance
The default apache page is only shown when you have apache installed on the target machine. It sounds like you're trying to access your own machine instead of the router.
Make sure you're accessing the default route ip address and not your own ip address. Example:
You can get to this by right clicking on the network icon and clicking "Connection Information"
Is this a modem, or a router?
In most DSL setups, the modem and the router are NOT the same device. Typically, the modem is just the gateway to the internet and provides you with an IP address, however the modem needs some other device to GET the IP. Are you certain that your modem is also a router?
You don't say what is your IP and your modem's local IP, which will be useful to know as said by @Martin Owens -doctormo-
If your modem's IP were crashing against your computer's IP, you shouldn't have internet connection.
Now, what you are experiencing is a conflict with port 80 redirection. Which can be solved in an easy way but it requires you to know how to edit your redirections in order to make them call the appropiate port in your computer.
You can change what port is your computer's apache service listening to by dropping the next in a terminal:
This will open a file whose contents should look like this:
Just change the line that reads:
for the port number that you wish and let's see if this fixes the problem. If it does, you will have access again to your modem.
Nevertheless, changing the port from this file will make your http service unreachable in the net. Then, now, if you are having access to your modem, let's change the NAT table in order to make all the petitions made to port 8080, run into the port 80 of your computer.
When this rules are set, now you can return the
I know this information may not be fully clear. But if you wish I can add further information. Just first perform this test and let's see what happens.
The results of this in your computer/modem may change my answer or delete it if this is not useful for you.
