Question about PC Desktops
Below is a list of router brands and their respective IP addresses.
With Internet Explorer, just type in the number for your respective brand of router into the address bar and hit enter. If this matches your router, and you have unimpeded communication from your pc to your router, it will access the router login and setup page.
Now just add your account information to it, and set it up like new.
For example, I have a 2WIRE wireless modem for AT&T, and typing 192.168.1.254 in IE takes me to the setup page for my router.
If you access the router and have set up a router password that you forgot, you can hit the RESET button on it and start fresh. Also, I am sure your internet provider will gladly help if needed.

It is usually easiest to run the install wizard, but be sure to be ready to set the items listed below.
Things to set:
Note: Routers are intended to be set by geeks. You have to SAVE EVERY page, or the changes will be lost. A geek knows this (apparently). The router gives no protest...just dumps your changes.
1. Login password (RECORD THIS!!). Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.
2. Set a recognizable system ID.
3. Invoke wireless security of at least WEP.
a. Assign your own access code, 10 digit home or cell #. Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.
4. Check that your router is set to broadcast its' presence.
