Many people new to computer networking have asked how to find their router's admin web page. Usually the advice is a bit complicated for the average user, e.g. running ipconfig on Windows.
Here's an easier way. Just go to http://findmyrouter.com. This site uses Java to determine the local IP address of your computer. Based on that, and a router knowledge base, it provides links to the likely IP address of your router's administration web pages. Now you don't need to run ipconfig or other utilities to figure this out yourself. And you no longer need to memorize addresses like "192.168.1.1".
Bit pointless really when you consider that the user has the ability to change the IP address to almost anything they want. A lot of ISP supplied routers are likely to be configured differently than the default.
