You could look in the manual for the router. You could also go to Start>Run>cmd. You should see a smaller black screen. Type in "ipconfig" without the quotes. In the display look for Default Gateway. That is the IP address for your router.

✔ Best Answer
If your computer doesn't have wireless connection to the router, you'll need to plug in an Ethernet cord from the router to your computer for a wired approach, or use a computer that is already connected wired/wireless to the router.

Once you have that physical connection, you can try going to your router's admin page. This is usually but not always. To find out yours, open up Command Prompt (Start > Run > type: cmd) and type in ipconfig One of the results will be Default Gateway and the IP address for it is your router's admin page.

Once you're in the router's admin page, direct yourself to the Basic Wireless Settings page (or something named similar) and check the Network Name (SSID).

Edit: Terii beat me to it.
