How to configure router in Windows RT (This page can't be displayed - http://192.168.1.1)

Windows 8 Consumer Preview ships with a version of Metro Internet Explorer that always has the "Enhanced Protected Mode" forced on. This means when connection to the documented IP (which is often something along the lines of 192.168.1.1) you will receive a mesage "This page can't be displayed".

You have two options:

- Use Internet Explorer 10 for Desktop
- Add the IP to Trusted Sites (Intenet Explorer Desktop -> Tools -> Internet Options -> Security -> Trusted -> Sites
