hi does anyone know how to do the following

Try setting your machine's IP to 192.168.0.3 and then try connecting to 192.168.0.1. Failing that, try your machine with 192.168.1.3 and connecting to 192.168.1.1.

i want to upgrade my d link router in er mode but i need to change my computers ip adress so i can access the router

in your internet explorer, type 192.168.0.1 and that should take you to the router and a login.No need to change your PC IP address as it will assign by the PC itself. I assume that you connected by cable to the router to do this.

OS version would help.....

Windows: Settings, network connection, right click, properties, select IPV4 (TCPIP) and fill out the boxes. Don't think you'll need to set subnet mask for this but use 255.255.255.0 Default gateway set to the router address.

just set card to dhcp, start -> run -> cmd -> ipconfig /all

read deets.

gateway = router ip.

wont work if you turned dhcp off in the router, but im guessing you didnt.

If your computer's IP address is not on the same subnet as your router's address, then you cannot access the router, nor any network traffic from the router, so yes you do need to change the IP address. Is this what you are referring to? Have you acquired a PC that is failing to connect to your network? Shenghis has the right idea but just to expand further, see below.

To change the IP address of your PC, you need to set it to automatically assigned or change the static IP address to match the subnet. If your router's IP address is aaa.bbb.c.d you need to set a static IP address of aaa.bbb.c.n where n is not equal to d. However, using an automatically assigned IP address is easier because if the router has DHCP enabled, then a static IP address may not allow you to connect. The process is slightly different between differing versions of Windows but in Windows 7, go to Control Panel, Network and Internet, network connections. Double click the network adapter that you are using to connect, click Properties, select the TCP/IP connection and Properties again. Set the IP address and DNS to be automatically assigned or use a static IP address that is on the same subnet as described above.

You don't need to change your IP Address to access the router lol.

If the devices are not on the same subnet, how can the router be accessed?

I thought the point was though that they don't want to access it but reflash it. I doubt in 'recovery mode' or whatever DHCP will be active. Just supposition though as I don't own a Dlink......

DHCP mode is likely to be enabled within the router settings since this is usually the default mode. Upgrading the firmware still requires network access within the same subnet, which was what you originally advised (although automatic settings with DHCP turned ON is more convenient).
