2) if your using WINDOWS XP:
click on start - then click on RUN
on the RUN COMMAND screen type the word command on the space provided then click on OK
on the black screen type in IPCONFIG/ALL then press ENTER on your keyboard.
then look for the default gateway on the info provided on your screen make sure you write it down on a piece of paper.

if your using WINDOWS VISTA or WINDOWS 7:
just click on the windows logo then type the word COMMAND on the start search field.
then a black screen will appear on your monitor then type in IPCONFIG/ALL then press enter on your keyboard then look for the default gateway.

3) if your able to get the default gateway type it in the address bar of your internet explorer and you will be able to access your router's main screen.

good luck. :)

Change wireless network name, how and where?

The wireless network name is defined by the router (access point), not your individual wireless card (bridge). The manual for your wireless router will tell you how to change the name of your wireless network.
