Default Help obtaining IP of local router...

I have a local router on my home LAN but I am unable to figure out it'* IP. DHCP is not active on it but I do have a wireless laptop hooked up to it that is working properly on the lan. When I do an ipconfig /all it points the gateway and everything else to other places, and not the wireless router that it is going thru. Any ideas on how to find it'* IP?

PS: This is for work. Going the extra mile to impress the highest ups. I just got stuck here though.

The router IP should be the gateway the laptop is using.

Or are you looking for the PUBLIC IP?

I think I found the IP. If you start to ping down the list of IP'* eventually you hit something . Now I just need to figure out the ID and Password that Cisco uses as default.

Oh, and BTW, The IP I found isn't the gateway. My gateway is another pc on my lan that shares it'* DSL to all PC'*. This IP (the one I found) isn't listed in the ipconfig at all but does have a logon box when connecting thru IE (like the AP is suppoed to have).

Can you do a traceroute through it? From a PC that works off of it?
One of the first hops will be it.

Tried tracert, It went straight from my laptop to the gateway pc, skipped BOTH wireless routers in the path. I know what the IP is of the other one and it wasn't there. But I got the IP figured out now. I just got to figure out the default id and password now. :(

Try leaving ID blank, and using 'admin' as the password.

Legit equipment from work I am trying to setup (and learn) for an install tomorrow night in one of our executives homes. I have their new wireless laptop and a Cisco AP that needs to be setup prior to install tomorow.

I have tried combinations of the following for id'* and passwords so far:
admin
administrator
<blank>
cisco
password
changeme

Try downloading the manual from their website. If someone has changed the default, then try resetting the router (you may have to reconfigure it, though)
