Product page:
Linksys by Cisco Wireless-N Broadband Router with Storage Link WRT160NL

PDF manual:

See if this may help.

How do I get access to my unit's configuration page?

Your unit can be accessed by browsing to on a PC currently connected to the unit, be it by wireless or by direct ethernet connection. You will be prompted for a username and password - please use "admin" and "password" to log in. We strongly recommend you change the password to something secure once you've logged on to the device, via "Set Password" under "Maintenance" on the left-hand side. If your Samknows unit is currently in bridge mode, please use instead.
Thanks but these are no help!

I just got my SamKnows router but it is a Netgear. When you open Network and Sharing Center can you see the Router. If not check your cable from the PC to the Router. There should be a pin hole in the back to reset the router to default. Give it a try and let us know.

The OP is in England and not part of the FCC/SamKnows project.
However it seam that SamKnows is working with OFcom in England on a similar project.

Ofcom | Help us test broadband speed claims

The routers should be standard with just the test programs loaded into the program. All the normal functions are not affected with normal login procedure.
