    Reset the router and hope the password and IP are reset back to default.

    To get the IP, STart / Run, and type CMD In the box it brings up, type IPCONFIG /ALL {don't forget the space}.

    The DNS is the Routers IP Address.

    Depending on what make of router, the login is generally admin , and the password= password, or admin for both.

    That'll be the router as well, unless you use a seperate Modem.

    Thank you for your reply. The reason I know to know the IP address and the password is because I can't access the router’s web-based setup page without them, even though I know IP address, I still can't do that. Thanks anyway
