My wifi router at my house runs web configuration interface at 192.168.1.1:81. When I connect my notebook to another wifi router which runs web interface on port 80, I just can't access the web interface with Chrome because although I write 192.168.1.1:80 in the address bar, Chrome tries to load 192.168.1.1:81 and I get the "Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to 192.168.1.1:81" message. I always have had to use Firefox to enter those routers' web interface because there's no way to do it with Chrome. I admit I haven't tried erasing history, but I guess that should not be the solution.

I tried to reproduce the same issue with ports 5801 and 5800 and it doesn't occur, so apparently it's some thing specifically with port 80.
