Several major brands of routers access the router setup by typing the following into your browser search window

198.162.1.1

Random Chinese letters.
It says something like "BTC-ADSL".

Unfortunately, that not enough information.

Open a browser and type 192.168.1.1.......does it open anything? If not, try some of these:

If that still doesn't help, try this:

1. Click Start
2. In the search box, type cmd
3. In the list that appears, right-click on cmd.exe and choose Run as administrator
4. In the command window that opens, type ipconfig and hit enter.

The routers IP address will be shown next to Default Gateway, like this:

If you changed it from default , and you have forgot it, the only way around is to reset the router, but you will loose all settings of you do that, and it would require a full re configeration,

I have the manual. When I enter the details for the username and password, it just never stops loading when I press enter. That's why I made this thread. I waited for 5 minutes and it was still loading. I used other browsers and stuff. Same result. Endless loading.
