    you could use wireshark to find it out, just plug your laptop/pc into the router and start monitoring the adapter, your router will be shouting like crazy things like who has 10.x.x.x tell 10.x.x.x

    Isn't there a reset switch? Then you can use the default address.

    there is usually a reset switch which if you hold down for a while resets it to the defaults.

    i would only use the reset as a last resort, or a password issue

    in his previous post he said that he hadnt used it for a while so it was irrelevant if it was reset it to default because he was setting up afresh anyway
