Since I've been using the Tor Browser, I am unable to access my router at http://192.168.1.254. Is this merely a coincidence or an unfortunate side effect of using the Tor Browser. I'd like to avoid doing a "factory reset" to access my router. Any suggestions?
When you access a site via the Tor Browser it sends you traffic through different servers to ensure your anonymity. This means that you cannot access any computers on your local network - including your router as it tries to send the data via Tor. To fix this simply use another browser for accessing your local network.
Hope it helps!
