It can happen due to many factors:

1. Router IP address might be different

2. Browser cache is full

3. Improper local host setting or malicious influence

4. Firewall blocking


1. Make sure that router IP address is

ie. On command prompt type

ping and make sure that you are getting valid replies.

2. Clear browser cache

3. Clear temporary internet files

4. Use a different browser

5. Disable the security suit installed on your computer and try again

I hope it will work.

First of all please make sure that the router IP address is by referring the router manual. If you cannot make sure it please try the number below.

Or disconnect power cable from the router for 30 seconds and connect it back. When the LAN light is steady on the router try top access the web based setup page.

Destination Host Unreachable - Reasons and Solutions

The error message "Destination Host Unreachable " tells that the ping request from our computer cannot find the route to the destination IP address(destination host). It means, the Packet send from your computer reached the destination network successfully but the remote gateway failed to find the destination host. So the remote gateway sends an Echo message Destination host unreachable. One major possibility for this error; there is no route listed in the remote gateway, for the packet send from your computer, to the destination host. If there is no route available, it is impossible to find the destination host and your computer will receive an error message "Destination host unreachable" from remote gateway. So one of the reason for this can be faulty routing table. If the destination host is down at the time the packet send, it may result destination host unreachable error message.
