As far as I know, you would need default gateway access. Since he did say that it is not allowed to access the default gateway, access would require unethical methods. Since that is illegal as mentioned, default gateway access cannot be obtained legally, thus you wouldn't be able to change any IP configuration (Default Gateway Address + the IP assigned). I don't think manually changing your IP address will work, it would require the router to assign static addresses. You could try asking them if they could change it.

I think the internet provider will not allow me to do that or will ask extra fee for that.
About changing my ip and default gateway, is this how I will do it ?

That is forcing your computer to rely on given data, rather than requesting the router for a unique IP Address. Usually, manually assigning an IP address wouldn't work. It would simply not register to the ARP Table.

If you could tell us how you solved it (changed your IP address), that would be nice.

The guy who was asked to set-up our router inserted the main internet cable in the first port instead of inserting it in the "internet port" of the router. So, I tried it inserting there and it worked; no need of changing my ip address or whatever because after I plugged it and typed "ipconfig /all", the default gateway automatically changed to 192.168.1.1

I curse that guy for not setting my router properly

That means this guy plugged the modem into the LAN port on the router rather than the WAN port, hmmm that's not gunna work too well. No need to assign any IP's with a working router because with DHCP enabled it's all automatic.

It's too bad we can't see that sort of problem from here.

I had the same problem with it taking me to my internet supplier. My internet supplier is BT, if yours is the same click 'configure' that is to the right of 'static ip' and then fill in the password. Someone before mentioned the possible passwords which are:
Username: User Name Password: Password
Username: admin Password: admin
Username: admin Password: <blank>
Or if they don't work visit: Router Passwords
