I cant log into my router.

Specs: Windows XP
Okay. just made an account so excuse me for my stupidness. I couldnt log into my router after i let my friend get on teamviewer and open some ports for one of my other devices. It said teamviewer is currently using port 80. then i went and stopped the process from the task manager and it still wont let me log into my router. we orginally opened these ports because it kept kicking me off of xbox live.

For Teamviewer, nothing has to be forwarded in the routers setup. It works without intervention, because it establishes a connection to a teamviewer server in the internet and gets forwarded to the one, how has the correct login data.

So if your friend has forwarded port 80 to your computer and your routers configuration interface also uses port 80, you can't connect.

The only way, to get around this is, to reset the router to it's factory default settings and reconfigure it from scratch.
To do so, read the manual of your router.

Most routers can be resetted to factory default settings by pressing and holding the reset button of the router for 10 to 20 seconds.
As mentioned, see the routers manual.

You don't need a disk, to configure the router.
You have to access the router from within your internet browser, to configure the router.

Could you please post the output of your computer, of an ipconfig /all for review?
